MOON KNIGHT Is Back With A New Mission And His Own Series From Marvel Comics This July

Marvel Comics has revealed plans for a new ongoing Moon Knight series which will see Marc Spector return to his roots as a street-level vigilante. Keep reading for story details and some awesome cover art!

Marvel Comics has announced that the Fist of Khonshu will return in his own ongoing series this July from the creative team of writer Jed MacKay (Black Cat) and artist Alessandro Cappuccio (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).

Moon Knight #1 will spin out of the events of the "Age of Khonshu arc in Jason Aaron's Avengers run, and sounds like an intriguing new take on the character.

In the series, the mysterious Mr. Knight has opened his Midnight Mission, his people petitioning for protection from the weird and horrible. That protection is offered by Moon Knight, who stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his people. Marc Spector, in whichever guise he dons, is back on the streets, a renegade priest of an unworthy god. But while Khonshu languishes in a prison that Moon Knight put him in, the white-cowled hero must still observe his duty: protecting those who travel at night. And let it be known - Moon Knight will keep the faith.

"I'm very excited to be working with Alessando Cappuccio on the continuing adventures of one of Marvel's biggest messes- Moon Knight!" McKay says. "In the wake of his disastrous attempt to take over the world in the 'Age of Khonshu,' Marc Spector (et al) has retreated to what he knows- busting heads on the streets."

"When Tom Brevoort contacted me to work on the new Moon Knight series, I couldn't believe it," Cappucio added. “Debuting in Marvel Comics with one of my favorite characters is a dream come true! The story is a new beginning for Moon Knight, Jed did an excellent job as usual on the scripts and I'm delighted to be working with a professional of his caliber."

This sounds like a great entry point for anyone unfamiliar with the character before Moon Knight hits Disney+ next year, and the first issue is set to go on sale on July 7th.
