Whats with all this high tech nonsense Marcs got going on? holographic displays capible of analysing pizza slices and the fact that he now has an automated machine to apply his costume/armour just like Stark does in Ironman the movie and a Green Goblin-esque 'moon glider'. Its all dreadfully unoriginal. I know Marcs got a few dollars stashed away but Batman and Ironman already have the 'multibillionnaire with a secret identity and loads of high tech toys' corner of the market stitched up.
The art is acceptible - kinda like Opena's work but without the bells and whistles.
Deadpool was fairly faithfully represented although there doesnt appear much point in him appearing at all and the whole thing screams dreadful cash-in to me.
Why does Moonknight have what appears to be a 9mm pistol on the front cover? A crescent dart shooter that is not and it appears that hes back to throwing them instead of shooting them out of guns so why portray him with a firearms at all? A minor point but nevertheless...
: I have to agree that I enjoy the fact that
: Hurwitz has been "reconstructing"
: Moon Knight, which was something sorely
: lacking in the last series. I am not saying
: that after "The Bottom" , which is
: supposed to be the lowest point for anyone,
: that the character didn't evolve, but
: overall he got worse. I do acknowledge that
: Hurwitz has stretched some things, but for
: the most part has done well for the
: character. To me, the art is now distracting
: from the story. It is no longer enjoyable,
: just there. I'm sure this is to save money
: since the series is not selling well, so
: Marvel cut costs to keep it going. It is a
: shame because it is a good book with the
: potential to be a great book, but I think
: the direction the last run went turned a lot
: of readers off and they are not willing to
: try the new run. Again a shame. I know
: Hurwitz has had at least a year of story
: ideas and has stated for what he needed to
: do for the character would take him 12
: issues or so. I'm assuming we should get at
: least 12 issues out of this run. I want
: more, but if sales don't warrant, it we

: I have to admit I am enjoying the writing so
: far, but still think they need to have an
: artist worthy of a character as great as MK.

: well at least one person is enjoying the arc
: as much as I am, well ive been really
: enjoying the title as a whole so far. moon
: knight is my all time favorite character, so
: i enjoy reading anything involving him, and
: so far i have been pleased.

: Well, I am familiar with this artist, so it
: doesn't get in the way of the story for me.
: I find it adequate.
: The writing...Deadpool is depicted with
: some...humanity and subtlety, if I may say
: so. He is a smart alec, but NOT the totally
: Looney Tunes version...I enjoyed that. I
: enjoyed their little exchanges as well.
: I think Hurwitz is doing a solid job.
: Different from Huston (who deconstructed
: Moon Knight). Hurwitz is RE-constructing
: Moon Knight, and I am digging it.
: Reconciliation with Frenchie and Marlene,
: money and gadgets and a new beginning.
: Deadpool seems to have the role usually
: given to the Punisher. This is what I mean:
: Punisher, when facing Moon Knight, usually
: reminds Moon Knight of MK own killer
: instinct and dark side. Moon Knight wants to
: be Captain America, but is closer to Castle,
: and Deadpool is kinda throwing that in his
: face, I like that.
: Looking forward to the next issue.
