Internet sleuths and Easter egg hunters have revealed that episodes 1 and 2 of moon knight contain QR codes that, when scanned, lead to a website hosting various comics featuring the titular hero himself.
So far, it looks like only one code will appear in each episode if the show’s runners continue this trend in future episodes of moon knight.
