Well, I'm very sad. I think this bodes ill for MK. It basically indicates that he's not considered of capable of carrying his own title and I'd be very pleasantly surprised if he gets another push any time soon.
I'm sad also because I'm one of those who was able to look past the break with MK's history and enjoy this title in its own right. Actually, I really like it. I am going to savour the last three issues and wonder where Bendis would have taken it. I guess I'll also wonder whether given more time it might have developed more of a following.
Short of buying 30,000 copies of each issue, I don't suppose there's much any of us here can do about it now!
--Previous Message-- : i always have high hopes for Marc Spector/Moon : Knight. : : They cancelled a Taskmaster series with a : lead character who had a tony stark goatee : and a shitty entourage tv show. Marvel must : lose money on comics.. i can only see this : writing pushing readers away to other forms : of more thought out entertainment. : : no one asked me but i believe an angle would : be take it back to the werewolf bite. marc : spector was wearing silver armour - it : provides him supernatural abilities without : a lycanthrope mutation . the personality : disorder arose from a series of traumatic : events. The Lycanthrope virus caused : depersonalization and hallucinations : (Khonshu is a justification for returning : from the dead). Marc Spector is very : intelligent. Have him grounded in a urban : supernatural setting taking on werewolf : street gangs, lesbian draculas, f_ck even : have him punch out a few mummies that storm : the set of his TV show. DO NOT REBOOT. : REFINE. - BATMAN had a dog! : : : : --Previous Message-- : Yeah. It kind of ruined my day. I found : out : right after I put in an order with a store : two hours from where I live to have the new : issues shipped to me since our local shop : shut down. : : The revival of Moon Knight a few years ago : was why I got back into collecting comics : after nearly 15 years, and every series I've : bothered to collect has been cancelled : since. I haven't seen anything that says : Moon Knight is officially off the Secret : Avengers team but, if he is, that reduces : the amount of comics I collect to zero. : Unless he makes some guest appearances or : shows up on another team, I think I'm done : with comics again. It's too bad. I held on : through some of the worst writing and : depictions of the character with Hurwitz : and, like, half the Marc Spector: Moon : Knight series in the 90's, but I was : actually liking this book. : : I think we'll see Moon Knight get a series : again someday. Resurrection is kind of like : his super power. : : --Previous Message-- : Damn... : : So what happens now? They changed the Secret : Avengers roster, so where does Moon Knight : end up? Will he just be a property floating : around in limbo for a few years? Whether or : not you liked what Bendis was doing with the : character, this is depressing news. : : --Previous Message-- : It's over. : M : Or, it will be as of issue 12. : : "I hoped it would keep going with some : new talent or something, but it isn't.
