Moon Knight episodes feature Marvel comics viewers can access for free
Warning: This article contains minor spoilers for Marvel’s Moon Knight.
Marvel’s Moon Knight features hidden QR codes that give viewers free access to the comics that inspired the Disney+ series.
The second episode of Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney+, and plenty of people have taken to social media to share their thoughts, opinions and reviews on the final chapter – but some have studied the footage a little closer than others and spotted interactive Easter eggs strategically placed in the background of certain scenes.
Episode 2, for example, features a QR code on the storage locker visited by Steven Grant. This QR code actually works when scanned and leads fans to a Marvel page where they can access a free digital comic. This week’s companion is Werewolf by Night #33, featuring Moon Knight’s second comic book appearance.

The Moon Knight premiere also included a free comic book giveaway. Redditor u/Goalless highlighted the Easter egg for those who might have missed it amid all the chaos, writing, “There’s a QR code on the wall of the Moon Knight Museum that takes you to a free digital copy of Werewolf By Night 32.” GamesRadar has confirmed that the promotion will run for all six episodes.
Marvel is reportedly developing a Halloween special for Disney+ that will take inspiration from Werewolf by Night. Composer Michael Giacchino is said to be leading the project, although very little is known about this at the moment. It’s also unclear which incarnation of the Werewolf by Night character might be involved or if Moon Knight will show up.
