I really enjoyed this 2014 sequence of Moon Knight and though I read them in reverse order, for this character it doesn't matter so much. Moon Knight is an insane but righteous vigilante. In this first episode he dons a spotless white suit and mask (Ellis likes this trope - look at Planetary) which never gets bloody or dirty in spite of Moon Knight's work. His limo is a self-driving car, and he also has moon-shaped glider and drones. As 'Mr Knight' he helps the police with bloody cases, but he also dons mystical Egyptian wrappings to deal with ghosts. I like this mystical or religious aspect of the character plus his mental health isssues; it distinguishes him from Batman who in some ways he resembles. Probably my favourite Marvel character, possibly excepting Dr Strange -- but this reboot is quite different from earlier versions. ( )

A visual feast for the eyes! This comic is all about style -- almost like Kill Bill in book form. There's a lot of action and not a huge amount of dialog, so the pages go by fast. The writer and artist were definitely in sync with this one, making the images feel like they're in motion.

Warning: this is a dark, weird and blisteringly violent comic. If you're into stuff by Frank Miller or Alan Moore, you'll probably dig it. But it's not for the faint of heart! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785154086, Paperback)

Marc Spector is Moon Knight! Or is he? It's hard to tell these days, especially when New York's wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and three - that's right, count 'em - three different personalities! But even with the mystical force of Egyptian moongod Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the night's greatest detective save a city that's as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Be here as Moon Knight punches ghosts(!), investigates a sleep experiment that's driving its patients insane, travels to the mushroom graveyard planet(!!), and takes on twenty mob enforcers to save an abductee...alone. Marvel's most mind-bending adventure begins now as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York's most bizarre mysteries!
