I've been a whore for Warren Ellis for about as long as my now-aging brain can remember...15 years now, I guess?

But holy hell...Moon Knight #2 came out today...please pick it up.

Why?

BECAUSE IT WAS THAT DAMN AWESOME, THAT'S WHY!!!

(Best book I've read in years, since the one issue of Batman where he was lost in the Court of Owls' maze and got effed up by a Talon at the end, and it's even more awesome than Fraction's early Hawkeye stuff, which is the gold standard for the last three years or so, IMO)

I grabbed it. Haven't read it yet though. Not really looking forward to it though. The story from issue 1 was pretty decent but that art...ugh. I hate his whole look now. Its like they just didn't finish it. Part of me just wishes Ellis would just go back and do more Fell.

I just have way too much stuff on my pull list to add Moon Knight to it. I did briefly think about it though.

Dude: Then you will be happy as hell with this issue.

In this issue you have:
1. The Moonwing
2. Crescent Darts
3. Truncheon with grappling hook
and, most importantly"

The costume which you like -- Ellis is throwing curveballs when you expect the fastball, my friend.

Drop what you're doing and read this bad boy. Top of the stack.

I'm not joking: If you don't like it, by all means, come on back and say, "You idiot. You made me drop what I was doing for THAT?"

But...I don't think you will. :D :D :D

Ha! Don't give war a chance -- give Moon Knight a chance!

One issue. #2. Give this one a shot, and I will pester you no further if you don't really like it.

But if you do like it: Come on back to the thread and help others overcome their skepticism.

Ok I did just that.


Ummm yea its a great story. Its very Warren Ellis done in one with a twist and thats a good thing. But the art is just eh. I think my problem is the white. It just looks unfinished and pulls me out of the story and that's not good. It needs the wrinkles and dirt like Finch put in there. It just looks to unfinished.

In that context the white is perfect metaphor for Marc Spector's "incompleteness." He's splintered through the four (or five) aspects of Khonshu, and thus is an "unfinished" person.


(Plus, you do realize you're talking to Elijah Snow Fan, don't you? He likes white suits. :-D )

I didin't like the 1st issue enough to want to pick up the 2nd. Plus, I've never really cared for the character.

I'll take Shalvey's art on Moon Knight over the works of any number of "finished" artists I've seen lately. (Simone Bianchi, Howard Porter, Scott Kolins, etc.)

It's not unfinished, it's an innovative colouring technique.

just read this weeks issue, it was really good. Shelvy's art wouldn't work on most books but, i'm digging it here.
