“I’ve died before. It was boring, so I stood up.” - Warren Ellis’ Moon Knight

Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, has always been a complicated character. He was this scavenger/mercenary type who finally found a conscience and was murdered for it. Dying in front of the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu, he was resurrected as Khonshu’s avatar of justice: 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!

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. Firstly, he takes the character back to the East coast, away from LA, and puts a pin in the mental problems. They’re still there but not so pronounced and there are no tedious sequences where a “tortured” Moon Knight looks up at the moon and whines “Whyyyyyyy meeeeee?” over and over.

He’s still got the multiple personalities though. Here he’s Moon Knight, the traditional Egyptian-themed superhero, and Mr Knight, a more street level character who looks like Elijah Snow from Planetary (stylish white suit), who consults with police on homicides. Who also has an automated white car with personalised number plates and a drone/glider. In this series, he investigates a series of supernatural-themed crimes in New York City.

Ellis applies his tried and true method of the one-shot series that he’s used before in Global Frequency and Secret Avengers (where Moon Knight was also a member) with each issue being its own self-contained story. And, to be honest, the stories aren’t that original.

Format: Paperback
The first six issues of the latest series (2014) of Moon Knight from Marvel Comics are collected as Moon Knight Volume 1: From the Dead (Moon Knight (Numbered)). These are six stand-alone issues, each of which has a little piece of a jigsaw addressing Moon Knight’s latest incarnation. Basically, following an apparent breakdown (and I don’t know whether it was made up for this series or refers to an earlier story), Marc Spector sought medial assistance, and discovered a new explanation for his condition, which has led to him abandoning his multiple civilian identities and instead taking up multiple masked identities, which works surprisingly well, at least with this particular writer-artist team, who provide ‘clean’ uncluttered stories with artwork that is able to match the feel of the story, regardless of setting, with huge widescreen backgrounds or claustrophobic sewers, as the plot dictates.

We first meet ‘Mr. Knight’, a man in a white suit with a white bag over his head travelling in a white stretch limousine, who shows up at crime scenes to carries out a Sherlockian analysis for the attending police, before descending into the tunnels below the city to confront the villain. We later see a more traditional Moon Knight character, travelling underneath a drone for aerial support, and later a figure encased in Ancient Egyptian artefacts for fighting ghosts. As the stories progress, we are told more about Marc Spector’s past – as the various characters perceive it – and meet a number of previous team-members who have put their past behind them and moved on to new and normal lives. There are a few new(?

I didn't think much of moon knight before hand but now after reading this i adore the character, its a great revival with art that fits in beautifully and a story that keep you holding on till the end of each book. Also don't worry if you don't know the character or havent read anything of his before it fits it in seamlessly without you noticing it, Definatly would recommend

Not classic Moon Knight by any means. Seems like Ellis has written the thing in his lunch hour.

Admittedly there are glimpses of what could have been, but as an overall reading experience it was just about okay.

I continue to wait fro something from Ellis to compare with Transmetropolitan, but on this showing I'll be waiting a long while.

Oh, and the art wasn't up to much either.

Sorry, folks, I was really looking forward to this.
