In 2011, one of my favorite creative teams started to work on a Marvel book called Moon Knight. Now, I had known of Moon Knight at the time mostly as a character who never really interested me. But with Bendis and Maleev working on the book I had to at least give it a try. After that first issue I was hooked on who Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector, was. That run of books was short lived but amazing and now there is a new Moon Knight that hit shelves this past week.
This time around Moon Knight is written by legendary comics writer Warren Ellis. Ellis seems to be taking Marc Spector into beinga bit of a crazier Batman type character with fancy gadgets, self driving cars, and detective skills. This is fairly refreshing for Moon Knight to be taken in a new direction. Now of course Marc Spector is still suffering from DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) but he doesn’t seem to be talking to Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Captain America any more. So we get a mix of new and old.
I highly recommend you check out Moon Knight #1 for a fresh new book written by a legend and drawn by the newly popular Declan Shavley. It’s in stock now at all Big B stores at the perfect try-me price of just $3.99.
