This book is Craaaaaaazy! Moon Knight is my new fave...because...ya know...issues.
First things first, Lemire's Moon Knight is not like Warren Ellis', and in the end, your tastes will dictate which you prefer. When Ellis revived this little known anti-hero, he did so with aplomb. His style brought out the bad-ass and suave aspects of the character, and the artist's bold use of colour and style, gave the comic a look unlike anything else Marvel had out. Lemire's Moon Knight plays up the lead's mental instability, which works in the context, and while the art also distinguishes itself from other comics, it can't compare in originality to the previous take. Smallwood's (and the guest artists') style does complement this new vision though; linework and shadows are fuzzy, colour palettes switch between a grounded set and an otherworldly set as Marc's vision is altered, and borderless panels are separated only by white space. All this visualizes Marc's mind. Volume one also shows that this will be a linear story rather than episodic content. It has a few twists in it, and the final one will have you questioning everything that just happened. Following such an end, it will be interesting to see where the series moves from here.
