NOVELIST ON "MOON KNIGHT"

Another novelist who has made the jump to comics, Charlie Huston (with penciler David Finch) is relaunching Moon Knight in a new series for Marvel Comics. Huston was recently interviewed by Comic Book Resources.

Marvel's press release:

Mercenary. Millionaire. Avenger. Marc Spector has been many things in his life, but after years away, he wants back in the super-hero game. In Moon Knight #1, the Egyptian god Khonshu who originally turned Spector into Moon Knight may just grant his wish.

A brand-new ongoing series, Moon Knight will return this April thanks to acclaimed novelist Charlie Huston (Caught Stealing, Six Bad Things) and super-star artist David Finch (New Avengers). The first 6-issue arc entitled “The Bottom” will see the return of some old Marc Spector villains as well as some brand new threats. We’ll also see Moon Knight fighting his own mental instability.

Huston says, "I've always been a huge fan of Doug Moench's original Moon Knight series. His dark themes tackled complicated issues and served up moral quandaries for the men and women in tights. I don't think it can be done any better than it was by Moench, but I will certainly try to do Moon Knight justice. One thing I will promise fans...it will be dark!"

Marc Spector wants to feel cartilage and bone exploding beneath his fists. He wants back in the game. He wants the fun stuff. In Moon Knight #1, the only question is…what is it going to cost him?
