Well I was tentatively interested in this when is was first rumoured. Warren Ellis can certainly write a good story & Declan Shalvey is a solid enough artist. Then they come out with this:

The series starts full throttle with Moon Knight thrown right into a New York mystery. It's not a slow start. Each issue so far bring to light a new mystery for MK to resolve with his armory of personalities.


IMHO the outfit is just bad, really not a good fit for the character (and maybe a little too derivative of Elijah Snow?). As for the "personalities", multiple identities were always a big part of MK's make up but the multiple personalities were a more recent thing weren't they (such as the SpideyCapVerine version)?

Either way, think I'm gonna be leaving this one on the shelf. Shame.

I still can't get my head around what happened to MK.

Around the same time as Civil War, MK was absolutely amazing and then they just pissed all over it....

As has already been said MK round about civil war time was brilliant (best ever run I reckon, on a par with Ed Brubaker's stuff on Captain America and Daredevil). Thereafter, it went all 1980s with the vengence, then off in another direction in LA with the Secret Avengers stealth role in between wherein a character who wears white cos he wants people to see him coming provided a contradictory distraction (?).

So yeah, split/different characters are very much in evidence with Moon Knight. I think you just need to just go with the flow of the current approach and read it on its own terms, maintaining only a limited sense of what previous authors have done. And so far, I reckon its potentially really good! (1)

(1) Saying that I reckon the "silent knight" and "date night" one shots are still amongst the most powerful, character defining issues of any comic I've ever read.

Okay so I caved and picked up the first issue on my last LCS trip.

The first few pages were wasted on a "previously in Moon Knight..." session. Then we get Mr. Knight's first adventure (Batman in a white suit, including an "I already beat you" trope) followed by a couple of twisty epilogues.

Art was nice but wish I'd saved my money.

Done by Ellis, so are we going to have to wait months at a time for the next issue?

So second issue's been and gone and ... and ..... Mr Knight was suddenly Moon Knight again; big cape, fist to the face and not in the least effete.

My response was "huh?". Bring on the 3rd issue I guess.

Well I guess this might mean Ellis is doing another "set up & run".

Dynamite is honored to announce that Warren Ellis, one of the greatest and most respected comic book writers in comics, will be working with Dynamite for the very first time! Warren Ellis plans to take control of the Project Superpowers universe in late 2014, as Dynamite Entertainment continues to celebrate its 10th Anniversary.

I loved Project Superpowers but I thought it had finished a good while ago.

Still cautiously optimistic this MK book can get going.

Yep, "set up & run" sounds about right with this announcement.

Newsarama wrote:
Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey might be ending their run on Moon Knight with August’s #6, but this new era for Marc Spector is just beginning.

This September, writer Brian Wood and artist Greg Smallwood will pick up where Ellis and Shalvey left off, to Moon Knight #7 and beyond. For those considered with someone picking up on the story of this atypical superhero, Wood’s previous superhero work is atypical as well – from Demo to DV8 and on through to his current X-Men run. And as far as filling the shoes of the departing Shalvey, Smallwood comes on the heels of some critically-acclaimed work on his creator-owned series The Dream Thief and is looking to make a name for himself in the superhero genre. This new duo will continue what Ellis and Shalvey started in Moon Knight, and series colorist Jordie Bellaire is remaining with the series providing a key consistency in the series as a whole.

At first I thought I wouldn't get past the Elijah Snow look, but overall I'm happy with the series so far. It does feel like Planetary guest starring MK though.
:yum:
