Warren Ellis Brings back Moon Knight

The writer will focus on the "weird crime" Moon Knight is good at dealing with.

Great news everybody! Moon Knight is coming back. He's been absent for too long (his appearance in Age of Ultron sort of doesn't count since it kind of didn't happen...). What makes this interesting is Warren Ellis is the one bringing him back. It turns out he's a fan of the character.

“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.”

“The best Moon Knight stories for me were always ground-level but weird crime,” he said. “‘Weird crime’ has kind of been the touchstone for me for this revival.”

You can see from the cover above that Ellis will be joined by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. It just keeps getting better and better. Here's an early look at some pages.
