First Look: MOON KNIGHT #1

Moon Knight's back! Time to do a happy dance.

This March, illuminate the dark corners of the Marvel Universe with MOON KNIGHT #1 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Warren Ellis and red-hot artist Declan Shalvey! Moon Knight #1 will continue the exciting wave of All-New Marvel NOW! series with a fresh and sensational take on Marc Spector and his vigilante alter ego Moon Knight!

“The touchtone for this book, for me, has been ‘Weird Crime.’ Both ground-level action and high strangeness,” says Ellis in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is a take on Moon Knight that unifies all the previous takes, making the character whole and taking him forward into a new kind of crime fiction.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have this book out in front of readers. Moon Knight is one the most fascinating characters in the Marvel library and the depths that Warren, Declan and colorist Jordie Bellaire are taking him to will guarantee this book fits perfectly alongside acclaimed books like Daredevil, Hawkeye and Black Widow,” says Editor Stephen Wacker. “This is the comic you had no idea you were waiting your entire life for.”

As a mercenary turned super hero, Marc Spector has faced down everything from werewolves, super villains to his own fractured psyche. Fearsome foes and gruesome threats permeate the darkest corners of New York City. Is Moon Knight ready for NYC? Better yet, is NYC ready for him?

Don’t miss one moment of the action when Ellis & Shalvey kick off the newest noir/horror thriller this March in the highly anticipated MOON KNIGHT #1!

This, my friends, is a Warren Ellis book. I can tell just by looking at it. Hopefully it is more like his NextWave run and less like his Astonishing X-Men.

Can't wait to get this, looks like it will be worth my $

Posted by Onemoreposter

Really like the art, particularly how Moon Knight's black and white's clash with the surrounding colors. Might have to pick this up.

Posted by IDontLikeBirds

Glad I pre-ordered, but really wish I got some of the variants as well.

Posted by Perfect 10

that last cover is pretty cool, but im just a sucker for a crescent moon. no dialogue so not see what the excitement is for.

Posted by cobracaptain

Well I'm in. I'm a dirty trade waiter, so I look forward to reading this in 6 to 8 months.

Posted by longbowhunter

Probably the newest Marvel series that has me the most excited. I'm just loving this recent wave if titles.

Posted by ARMIV2

Granov's variant...mmph...

I want that as a poster.

This, Punisher and Iron Fist for me.

I think this looks better than his Venom work that is for sure! I was not the biggest fan of that arc in Venom, no sir.

But this is something that I will be reading and NOT complaining about. This is going to be the Marvel's book that rivals Batman.

WHITE BATMAN!

Edited by bunkerbuster05

Yes yes yes oh god yessss.

Ever since The 12 issue Moon Knight series by Bendis 2 years ago, I've been waiting for my next fix.

Thank god we have a terrific team behind this.

He still has the old costume as well but it's been slightly redesigned.

I'll get the first issue, then trade wait

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Looks so good.

Posted by AlwaysTheBigSpoon

Can't wait! Always wanted to read about this character.

As someone who has never read Moon Knight, I do want to ask, what has been the appeal and hype of this character? What made him so popular, that it's almost cult-like?

Edited by G-Man

@hit_monkey: not sure if you realize, this is on the NEWS page. Forums don't show up there. We have many different types of users that sometimes only stick to certain areas. This was posted as soon as Marvel sent it over.

Posted by TheFirstLantern

Either the Skottie Young or Animal Cover for me.

I believe so. Not sure whether it was supposed to be funny or horrible though.

Finally my favorite street leveler is back!!!!

Sweet.

Posted by Pasto

THATS his new costume? Wow...underwhelming.

Posted by kantrip

I cannot wait for this. I'll also be very disappointed if @g_man is not the one to review it. :P

Posted by Teerack

It took marvel way way way to long to get a new Moon Knight ongoing out after their last one.

Posted by SynCig

This looks really awesome

interesting

Posted by BuNKiTZ

I've never read Moon Knight before and don't really know much about him except that he's crazy...? But seeing as Declan Shalvey's working on this and it looks really interesting plus, Moon Knight looks damn good in that suit... I'm definitely going to give this a try! Marvel NOW! hasn't failed me before and I'm sure it won't fail me now! Keep'em coming!
