We love our Easter eggs in movies and TV shows. What’s even more fun is when they lead you to get fun freebies! Marvel Comics has given away FREE MOON KNIGHT COMICS in an Easter Egg in each of its first two episodes in their new series on Disney+. We love that these “MOON KNIGHT” Easter Eggs Point to FREE COMICS.
MOON KNIGHT Easter Eggs Point to FREE COMICS
Hidden QR codes in each episode point the way to free downloads.

All the FREE COMICS MOON KNIGHT Easter Eggs
We’ll update this list each week as we find the hidden QR code/interactive Easter egg.
In MOON KNIGHT Episode 1: The Goldfish Problem (March 30), there is a QR code on a wall next to a sarcophagus in the museum where protagonist Steven Grant works at about 5:12.
In MOON KNIGHT Episode 2: Summon the Suit (April 6), another QR code can be seen on the door of his storage unit at about 8:25.
To date, both links point straight to a hub page on Marvel.com that appears to be updating weekly with a new free-to-read “Moon Knight” comic.
So far, fans who scan the QR code can visit the page and read issues “Werewolf by Night” (Vol. 1) #32 and #33, the story where readers are first introduced to the character of Moon Knight in the comics. In these issues, the Fist of Khonshu was hired to capture Jack Russell, the titular werewolf character.
It appears as though the promotion will run throughout the 6-episode series so look each week for the special interactive Easter egg.
The website also includes a promo code, “KHONSHU,” for 80% off a new subscriber’s first month of Marvel Unlimited ($1.99 instead of $9.99).
Double Easter Egg?
So while comic readers know that the first two free comics from Marvel, “Werewolf by Night” (Vol. 1) #32 and #33, are the comic where Moon Knight is first introduced, this particular nod may also be a bit of a double Easter egg and nod at a potential cameo.
Marvel is reportedly developing a yet-untitled Halloween special for Disney+ that will take inspiration from “Werewolf by Night,” and includes a main character by the same name. While little is known about the project, it’s possible that Jack Russell may make an appearance at some point in the “Moon Knight” series before the 6 episodes are complete. However, the Halloween special featuring Werewolf by Night as the main character would certainly be a likely place to see Moon Knight make an appearance.
History of QR Code Easter Eggs in Marvel Disney+ Shows
If you’ve been watching Marvel shows on Disney+, you may recall when there was a link to visit a website to “Explore Madripoor” in “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” series.
Interactive Easter Eggs
As interactive Easter eggs seem to be more and more popular, keep your eyes out for strategically placed QR codes and similar content in the background of scenes.
ABOUT “MOON KNIGHT”
The story follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered man who lives a mundane life, plagued by blackouts and mysterious memories of a life somehow separate from his own. After one fateful encounter, Steven discovers that he has Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and shares a body with Marc Spector—a former mercenary—and the ruthless avatar of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon and vengeance. With their enemies converging upon them, Steven must learn how to adapt to this revelation and work with Marc. With other godly motives at play, the two must navigate their complex identities amid a deadly battle played out among the powerful gods of Egypt.
“MOON KNIGHT” is streaming exclusively on Disney+ March 30, with new episodes every Wednesday.
