This is one of the greatest issues of a comic i have EVER read.
It might in fact be the greatest issue of a comic i have ever read.
It is simply THAT good.
Ellis, Shalvey and Bellaire should be knighted by the queen for this.
You NEED to read this.
The plot is simple enough.
There’s a kidnapped girl on the 6th floor of a building. Moon Knight has come to rescue her. And there’s bad guys in the way. Simples.
Every single page is phenomenal though.
If you’re not a fan of Moon knight this will change your mind.
Even if you’ve never read a Moon Knight comic you should read this.
What he said.
A comiXologist Recommends:
Jonah Chuang recommends Moon Knight #4
In the latest Moon Knight, Warren Ellis does the most Warren Ellis-iest thing in recent memory and writes a tale filled with mad pseudo-science and abstract psychic ideas that makes you feel like you’re going on an acid trip with a genuinely psychotic Moon Knight. It’s absurd, but so casually referenced that it produces a growing sense of dread for the reader as each chapter of the story progresses.
I don’t know what it is about Ellis/dshalv's Moon Knight— maybe it's the fact that he wears an immaculately clean white suit with matching blank mask and rides around in a limo fighting nightmarish things like it's a totally legitimate thing to do, or maybe it's his calm and collected body language in the midst of the extraordinary and horrifying circumstances that he always finds himself in, but this Moon Knight gives off an aura of stillness while simultaneously leaving you with the sense that he could transition into a fit of sudden and brutal violence at any moment.
As with the rest of the issues in this run, issue four doesn’t tie in with any of its preceding issues, so don’t worry if you haven’t read any of the others (though really, what the hell are you doing with your time that’s so important you can’t spend a few minutes looking at this crazy title),. Still, it is very much in the vein of the series’ apparent mission statement, which is, “watch this formerly crazy superhero scare the crap out of you more than any villain ever has.”

HEY! LISTEN! STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!
I know there are a lot of Deadpool fans out there and then also a lot of you who think he’s dumb and just is fart and chimichanga jokes, but this arc might be one of the best comics that came out last year.
Deadpool, Wolverine, and Captain America team up when they find out a secret branch of Weapon-X located in North Korea has been stealing their body parts to make clones of them to use for evil. This arc digs into the past of the characters and might be the most emotionally heavy-hitting Deadpool comics ever.
Seriously. I can’t recommend this one enough. The writing is so well balanced, and the team of Shalvey and Bellaire really shines.
Who out there loves this story as much as I do?
Diving into 28 Days Later tonight. It’s awesome to see the early work of one of the best artists out there, Declan Shalvey!
Shane’s Picks of the Week (10/9/13)
- PICK OF THE WEEK: Thor: God of Thunder #14 - JASOOOOOOOOOON AAAAAAARONN! FAAAAAANTASTIC!
- Batman #24 - Guys… did you see the Riddler blow that dude’s arm off? Jeeze Louise. That was my favorite Villians Month book, but I’m pretty stoked Zero Year is back in full swing tbh. Also this book is double length! Bigger is better, amirite?
- Deadpool #18 - I think this cover is rad, also this arc is rad. On a scale of one to rad I rate this “rad!”
- Infinity #4 - I cheated and read this already and y’all are in for a treat. Thor is a certified BAMF
- Afterlife With Archie #1 - I never ever thought I would have an Archie book on my list, but… here we are. Francavilla is the man and yeah! zombies! Halloween is coming! Fall is here! The only thing better than this would have been “Pumpkin Spiced Archie”
