If you’re an avid Marvel comics reader, you’ve probably said something close to this to any of your other Marvel comics-reading friends:
Seriously. If you would’ve told me last year that one of my favorite comics right now would be MOON KNIGHT? I would’ve thought you’d lost your goddamn mind. But I guess it’s no surprise that you can put Warren Ellis on any character, and it will be amazing. Add Declan Shalvey, a guy whose art I’ve loved since the days of Comictwart, and you’ve got all the makings of a book that is going to be great enough to live up to the mantle of Marc Spector himself.
It’s weird, Moon Knight’s always been this character that has this weird cult following, but it’s not like you can walk up to ANY comic fan and say, “Hey, tell me what you know ’bout Moon Knight?” To be honest, the only experience I have with Moon Knight is the 1989 volume that ended at issue 60, and even back then there was never any kind of through narrative, with the title going through multiple cancellations and changes.
But seriously, if you haven’t read the All-New Moon Knight series, seriously. Even if you don’t give a damn about Moon Knight as a character; even if for some reason Warren Ellis isn’t enough to sell you on a book: go get this. It’s great.
