Another week has passed, fellow Fly-Hards, so that means there must be another Super-Fly Comic of the Week! This week saw several launches from Marvel with Magneto #1 and Wolverine and the X-Men #1, Dark Horse launched Greg Rucka’s Veil #1, and Afterlife with Archie took a very dark turn (which is impressive for that series!) Unfortunately, many comics enter, one comic leaves and this week the comic that took the top prize is: Moon Knight #1!
Warren Ellis (Transmet, Thunderbolts) and Declan Shalvey (Deadpool, 28 Days Later) have brought back Marc Spector for a new series launching a “real” new #1. Jordie Bellaire also fully deserves to be recognized for some brilliant and beautiful color choices throughout this first issue. There have been a lot of different versions of Moon Knight over the years with differing reasons for his insanity, but this series seems to want to clean a lot of that up and give us a clear consistent Moon Knight. There are a few simply brilliant moments here both on the art side and in the dialogue, such as a brilliant splash page of Moon Knight climbing down into a manhole and we see multiple levels of New York City Underground, or when a character questions why Moon Knight wears all white to fight crime at night, his answer is fantastic. This was a highly anticipated new series and this first issue did not disappoint.
Just a reminder that tickets are still available for An Evening with Kevin Eastman. Details can be found by clicking HERE
