Moon Knight gets a new start in Marvel’s latest reboot of the series. Moon Knight #1 opens with Marc Spector incarcerated in a mental hospital against his will where he’s fed a continuous amount of physical abuse from the guards, electroshock therapy, and lies from a therapist I’m guessing doesn’t actually have Marc’s best interests at heart. Under a medically-induced haze Marc knows something isn’t right, but his drug addled mind struggles for the truth.
It appears the new series from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Greg Smallwood is going to once again play up the mental instablity of the character who isn’t even certain if the hospital in which he’s incarcerated is in New York City or somewhere in Egypt. Whichever is the case, I’m guessing the hospital isn’t going to hold him for much longer.
Still hearing the call of Khonshu, it appears our hero’s first order of business is to get out of the mental hospital, don his old costume (the all-white one please), and try to suss out just what the hell is going on. Worth a look.
