Can I start off by saying that I've always liked Moon Knight. There's just something about him that has always attracted me. Maybe it was that he wasn't one of the 'top tier' heroes in the Marvel Universe back in the 80s. He was, and still is, an underdog. Despite all that he does, it seems that he doesn't get the full recognition that he should get. How many times have we heard "Moon Knight is just a Batman clone." I've never seen it. The only thing I could really see is that one of Moon Knight's personas was a billionaire.
Moon Knight recently took some time off. After a run in with Norman Osborn and the Dark Avengers, "Marc Spector" died and Moon Knight ended up south of the border. How long can Moon Knight stay away? Now we have Moon Knight back in New York. Is this the same Moon Knight that we've seen before?
Once again, by pestering my wonderful contact at Marvel, I was able to get an early look at the new issue which is on sale tomorrow.
How many of you like Moon Knight? He's not your traditional hero. He does things his own way. Let's not forget the fact that he was a mercenary before he became a "hero." We've seen Moon Knight get really dark and edgy. Now that he's back, the question is, which Moon Knight will this be? Is he going to be the regular hero or is he going to start breaking bones and carving up people's foreheads?
I was blown away with this issue. Part of it was just the excitement over seeing Moon Knight return to New York, where he belongs. He's showing that he's on a mission and the bad guys (and Norman Osborn) better watch out. Gregg Hurwitz has done a great job in this one issue of returning Moon Knight to what he should be. In his last series, things started going downhill. Jerome Opena's art is nice to look at as well. He's given Moon Knight a new look to go with his new attitude. You might not agree with my review but let me know what you think after you read the issue.
