About this deal

The television show based on this character is set to be released soon and I was looking for a starting point for this character. The son of a rabbi, Marc Spector served as a Force Recon Marine and briefly as a CIA operative before becoming a mercenary alongside his friend Jean-Paul "Frenchie" DuChamp. When a young runaway is attacked by a gang of death cultists, he is left barely alive outside the Midnight Mission. Afterward, the Avengers confront Moon Knight about his abuse of his team reservist status to confront Doctor Doom.

Discovering a new character is exciting because you’re exposed to something you’ve never experienced before. Back in the day, HS, more than 30 years ago for me, I was an avid comic book reader, preferring Daredevil and X-Men. It's one that I was going to read digitally on my iPad, but when I started seeing the art I changed my mind and decided I needed this in print!Marc Spector is appalled at Bushman's bloodlust and that he targets civilians as well as enemy combatants. The Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide doesn't care where you've been, where you're going or where you're located.

For this new series, Warren Ellis has done a bit of a clear-up for the character, jettisoning a lot of extraneous material and putting in place a solid definition of Moon Knight.But he’s also had severe mental problems, often sharing his head with multiple personalities, like in Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s recent two-volume MK run where Marc believed he was also Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man! This book is like a R rated Batman comic with a twist to make it feel unique in a way, and that's why I love it so much! I also appreciate how much emotion he can put into the face of a man whose head is covered in a white mask. He presents six separate stand-alone comics, replete with some tricksey art work; each issue adding a piece to the new Moon Knight legend. Marc Spector wakes up in his grave and has a vision of being tasked with resuming his life as a champion of the moon.

himself and Marvel/DC/alternative presses), whose work I don't usually love, but this is fun and thoughtful and as usual, has some sociocultural commentary we expect from Ellis. Also sometimes you don't know if what you just saw or read was merely in the character's head or actually happening. Despite Moon Knight's protests that he does not need a sidekick, Midnight follows him into new adventures and is able to gain some training during adventures with the Punisher [49] and with the mercenaries Silver Sable, Sandman, and Paladin. Ellis is trying to put his own stamp on the character and in the process throws Bendis’ version under the bus.The only complaint I have with the entire run is that it wasn’t long enough, but even then, I’m just glad we got any of these stories in the first place. Moon Knight received his first ongoing series in 1980, with Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz as its main creative team. After reading this, I'm still not sure I know enough about the character to give you a detailed run-down.

Abrupt endings without complete explanation are in the more 'other-worldly' tales, but then you are dealing with magic, mysticism and a protagonist who's possessed by a God of the Moon.Sure, he could pull his white suit jacket off to one side after he unbuttoned it, but that just doesn't have the same sort of flourish that whipping a cape around does, you know?
