Marvel announces all-new Moon Knight series
One of my all-time favorite comic characters is the mentally unstable Moon Knight. With the excitement building for his live action series coming to Disney + in 2022 it looks like Marvel is ready to amp up the focus on the character. Throughout his long history that began in 1975s Werewolf By Night # 32 and moved through numerous monthly and mini-series the character has stayed in the forefront but often moves back into the shadows. Now Marvel has announced an all-new monthly series aptly titled Moon Knight from the creative team of writer Jed MacKay(Black Cat) and making his Marvel Comics debut, artist Alessandro Cappuccio (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).
Moon Knight follows the mysterious Mr. Knight who has opened his Midnight Mission, his people petitioning for protection from the weird and horrible. That protection is offered by Moon Knight, who stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his people. Marc Spector, in whichever guise he dons, is back on the streets, a renegade priest of an unworthy god. But while Khonshu languishes in a prison that Moon Knight put him in, the white-cowled hero must still observe his duty: protecting those who travel at night. And let it be known – Moon Knight will keep the faith.
Moon Knight has stood out over the years thanks to his intriguing mythology and the psychological complexities of the character. Having enjoyed critically-acclaimed runs by Brian Michael Bendis, Warren Ellis, and Jeff Lemire, Mark Spector now makes his much-demanded return with
a series that will give Moon Knight fans exactly what they’ve been asking for and serve as a perfect gateway for newcomers interested in this unique Marvel hero.
This new series spins directly out of the recent “Age of Khonshu” arc in Jason Aaron’s Avengers run and promises to be a worthy new adventure for this fascinating character. Don’t miss the start of Moon Knight’s new era when MOON KNIGHT #1 hits stands on July 7th.
