Moon Knight #5

Moon Knight 5Warren Ellis // Declan Shalvey
September 2014
****

MK storms an abandoned building to save a kidnapped kid from goons. While others (Waid, Fraction) push vigilante comics in new directions, Ellis returns to the genre’s roots. Like 1930s pulp tales, Ellis is unrepentant about lurid violence. Contrast w/ Shalvey’s staging: smooth, almost balletic.
