Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey, Jordie Bellaire Relaunch Moon Knight For Marvel In March

moonknight1coverMoon Knight will get a new Marvel Now series from Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey, and Jordie Bellaire in March, breaking from the LA Times:

A mercenary brought back to life by an ancient Egyptian god, the moneyed, gadget-equipped vigilante alter ego of Marc Spector fights crime at night dressed in white. Moon Knight has been criticized as a less compelling Batman, but Ellis, the British writer who will pen an upcoming comic book series featuring the character, mischievously twists the comparison.

“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.”Moon_Knight_2 Moon_Knight_1 Moon_Knight_3
