Great news everybody! Moon Knight is coming back. He's been absent for too long (his appearance in Age of Ultron sort of doesn't count since it kind of didn't happen...). What makes this interesting is Warren Ellis is the one bringing him back. It turns out he's a fan of the character.

“The man is demented in more interesting ways than I think Batman ever was,” he said by phone from his home in Southend-on-Sea, England, in a conversation punctuated with laughs and coughs. “[His] cape is actually a crescent moon and he goes out only at night and dresses in reflective white so you can see him coming. Now that’s nuts…. I like that.”

“The best Moon Knight stories for me were always ground-level but weird crime,” he said. “‘Weird crime’ has kind of been the touchstone for me for this revival.”

You can see from the cover above that Ellis will be joined by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. It just keeps getting better and better. Here's an early look at some pages.

The series will be part of the All-New Marvel Now and will be released in 2014.

I love Moon Knight but i don't think he'll ever be the same after all the cancellations & character altering he suffered .

#10 Posted by MideonNViscera (367 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, if it's Ellis I'll sure as hell check it out.

#11 Posted by Billy Batson (58029 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool.

It being 3.99 isn't good for the series, though and I wonder if Ellis is going to be longer than an arc.

SO SO SO Excited about this. I quite dig the suit look but I really hope they don't loose the hood and cape, I have always loved that look.

Dropping Superior Spider-man to get this title.

@billy_batson: I have a feeling we're about to see the end of the $2.99 comic. Feels like Marvel and DC are moving away from it.

Can barely contain my excitement at this news! I absolutely loved Ellis' take on the character in Secret Avengers so I wished he could write a series. Thank you, Marvel, for making my wish come true.

Like you wanna carve a moon symbol into someone's forehead excited?

Also as an actual fan of MK I really don't care who's writing the series or if it's only for one arc. I don't care what the price of the comic is either. I'm simply happy that he has his own series again.

Hope it is as good as the last volume. It was amazing.

It's annoying, but as long as they have a higher page count I'm mostly fine with it.

Also, I've never really read any Moon Knight, but the idea of an actually crazy Batman is super intriguing. Plus, there's the Warren Ellis of it all.

@g_man: First thing I thought, Tony must be Sooo happy!! :D

I've honestly never read anything Moon Knight related to my knowledge other than AOU. This guy seems to be over with the viners so I'm willing to trust em and give this series a shot.

@g_man: You are the first person I thought of when I saw this news! You must be proud to have such a connection to Moon Knight in my mind.

#26 Posted by SlamAdams (300 posts) - - Show Bio

@irishx: A lot of people want him in the suit? Why? Is that something from an old comic? Or was that sarcasm?

PS: These are genuine questions. I'm not trying to be dismissive.

#27 Posted by kest (21 posts) - - Show Bio

Amazing news!! so so so cant wait for this, loving the art and style. Lets hope Ellis can bring a long lasting series run for this awesome character. Cant wait!!

I haven't read any Moon Knight, but the character really sounds interesting, and I would check out this book based just on the creative team.

"And all the whores and supervillains will look up and shout, 'Save us', and I'll whisper........... No"

Sorry, but with that costume I can't help but think Rorschach. Not that that's a bad thing.

Moon Knight is awesome. So glad to hear about this.

MOOOOOOOON KNIGHT!

Now we just need a Black Panther and Doctor Strange title and all my dreams will have come true.

Also a new Daredevil title to replace the cancelled one instead of this stupid Infinite thing.

I don't ask for much.

#46 Posted by moviegeek17 (1482 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not used to saying this these days, but well played Marvel. Ellis had a great voice for Moon Knight on his Secret Avengers run, so I'll definitely pick this up in trade.

#47 Posted by SilverPool (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

YES!

Thank you for the news! I'll definitely be picking this up, Moon Knight has been one of my favorites and I'm always interested in picking up something with him in it.
