spankymac314's Shadowland: Moon Knight #1 - Shadowknight review

Avatar image for spankymac314

Off to a good start...


When I heard that Moon Knight was gonna be a part of the Shadowland event, I got immediately excited, because I had the utmost faith that Hurwitz could do wonders with the character in that setting. So far, I haven't been let down. It's not perfect, but it's a helluva start. Basically, Steven Grant is the new dominant personality, and he's finally happy. Millionaire by day, Moon Knight by....well, by night, and the father of his love's baby. Unfortunately, Khonshu is not pleased by this. He's looking for a new Avatar, and so is The Profile, who's looking to destroy Moony on the orders of Daredevil. The recruitment of Shadowknight(a bit on the nose, but still cool) is amazing, and his identity is, while not incredibly shocking, still very compelling. This is gonna be an out and out fight between Moon Knight and his doppleganger, and I can't wait. The art in this book is spectacular, to the point where it almost feels TOO slick for a dark story like Moon Knight or Shadowland. The whole enterprise is great to read, and I'm sad it's only gonna go for three issues. On the whole, I'd recommend that you pick it up, ESPECIALLY if you're a fan of Moony.

       ART : Let me say that the cover to this comic is one of the best I've seen in awhile.  It is beautiful.     The interior art, though, is a bit..off.  What could have been a truly amazing book gets dropped down a notch because the art is inconsistent and when some characters are portayed during their youth, the reader may not be able to discern exactly who the characters are.   From one page to the next, I had to look back and forth because the artist failed to keep the characters' appearances...

         Yet another great Shadowland story arc crossover! Jake (or Steve, it all depends on who you're talking to) seems to finally have everything going in the right direction. He bought a brand new mansion/base of operations, him and Frenchie are teamed-up like the old days with Crawley and Ray backing him up, he has Marlene living with him again SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. (and she's pregnant!!), and he seems to have Khonshu and his hunger under control. But  Daredevil...
