While Moon Knight never really generates huge commercial success, we continue to love that Marvel finds ways to advance the story of Marc Spector and the costumed character itself. The publisher is getting ready for the April 13th, 2016 debut of the new ongoing series that comes from writer Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and artist Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight). The finalized cover has been revealed as well as a look at a few unlettered pages and the three main variant covers as well.
Plot concept: For years, Marc Spector has defended New York City as the masked vigilante Moon Knight. Calling upon the powers of the ancient Egyptian God Khonshu, he has kept the city safe from street gangs and supernatural forces alike. Or has he? Waking up in an insane asylum will shake anyone’s confidence. But it can’t be true, can it? His mind is full of identities and he no longer knows which is real. His thoughts are clouded and he has no idea what to believe. If he calls to Khonshu, he believes he will receive an answer. But is this a sign he still clings to his sanity, or has it slipped from him completely?
