Writer: Warren Ellis Art: Declan Shalvey/Jordie Bellaire
The final issue of Mr. Ellis’ run on Moon Knight is finally here. And it ties up some of what he was doing while also making a fine statement of the effect that a figure like Moon Knight can have on those around him. What I love about Ellis is his character work, and it certainly was felt with what is typically a hard character to get a grasp on (considering that his personality has shifted so many times through the years and, depending on the writer, he even has multiple personalities in his head). Still, Ellis managed to make him into a certified threat and not just a “poor man’s Batman.”
I’ll miss Ellis on the book (as I always do when he leaves any project). But here’s hoping Mr. Brian Wood can do something with it going forward.
