*****

Ellis’ brief runs show the power of varying your method each issue. MK #2 & #5 were tight, one-scene actioner; #6 is a hypercompressed story, doubling as an origin recap for Knight & as the creation & defeat of a copycat vigilante. He’s built into a threat superbly, then instantly outclassed by MK.

Moon Knight #1

Moon Knight 1Warren Ellis // Declan Shalvey
May 2014
****

In white suit & limo, Moon Knight hunts a killer Frankenstein cyborg under NYC. Four years after his last series, this 1970s riff on the Shadow gets resurrected again by a master at overhauls. In Ellis’ hands, MK’s a gentleman detective haunted by a weird entity from outside time; Shalvey adds ghostly atmo.
