Last month marked the 20th anniversary of comic book innovator Jack Kirby’s passing. Coming a little late to celebrate, Max nonetheless takes a blog entry to remark on the importance of Jack Kirby on the medium and several ways to honor the “King” of comics, Jack Kirby today—or even discover his art for the first time!

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.
