MOON_KNIGHT_1In 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.

moon_knight_1_interiorThis 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.
