Poor service for a good hero

  • Sep 2, 2007
After a few years on Marvel's back shelf, Moon Knight is back -- without any of the things that made him cool. Charlie Huston, a best-selling novelist but comic-book novice, has apparently decided that a morose, Batman-like character is the way to go -- even as Batman's writers are taking him away from the whole grim and depressed motif. Spector has lost his girl and his friend. He's crippled, drunk and addicted to painkillers. He's still rich, but he's not enjoying it. Of course, you just know something is going to happen to shake him loose from his funk.

The story is a little confusing and a lot violent. By the end, I'm not sure I really like the character any more. Huston should have served him better. On the other hand, artist David Finch -- who received absolutely no front-cover billing, by the way -- turned in amazingly good work. The art, while dark and bloody as suits Huston's writing, is sleek, stylish and expressive.
