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.”
