Anyone who knows me know that I’m a HUGE Moon Knight fan. I’ve got every single issue from every single series that he was in. So, needless to say, I was more excited for Moon Knight #1 than anybody else on this planet. There was just one problem. I don’t usually like the writing of Warren Ellis.
Well, Warren Ellis proved me wrong with this book. He’s not writing like his usual self, and that threw me for a loop. Most often, when he takes on an already established character, he takes away everything that makes that character cool and spins him or her off in a totally different direction. Now, he does do that to some degree here, but he also leaves the core of who and what Moon Knight is. And, don’t worry, he even lets Moon Knight use his trademark crescent moon “moonarangs” or whatever they’re called. HE takes the character in a totally different direction than he’s ever been in before, but he makes it work and it somehow makes sense. I was very pleasantly surprised.
Ever read an interview with a comic book writer or artist and say to yourself, “Hey, I can ask a better question that!”? Do you have a question you have always wanted to ask a comic professional, but never had a chance to do so? Well have no fear, Geeks of Doom is here to help.
At this year’s New York Comic-Con this week, I will be roaming the show floor conducting interviews with various comic writers, artists, and editors. See below for the folks I will be interviewing throughout the week, so if you have any questions for these people, now’s the time to let me know:
– Brian Wood (Demo/Northlanders) and Becky Cloonan (East Coast Rising/Wolves)
– Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaacs (Angel and Faith)
– Katie Cook (Gronk)
– Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars)
– Daniel Ketchum (Marvel Editor)
