Read full description of the books Moon Knight, Vol. 2: Blackout:Konshu, why hast thou forsaken me?
A little over-simplified background before we get sucked into the quasi-sacreligous-Judeo-Christian-Star-Wars allusions: Marc Spector was a mercenary. He was in Egypt looking for treasure. He nearly got killed. He was brought to the altar of the god, Konshu. His heart stopped. Konshu appeared in a vision and made Mr. Spector his avatar on Earth, endowing him with powers. Spector is also rich, so he can afford “toys”. Enter: Moon Knight, crime fighter. Moon Knight likes to dress in white.
Wearing white in New York City is never a good fashion choice.
A personal aside: I had the most comfortable pair of white pants ever. I decided to wear them to work one day. I took the subway to work. While waiting on the platform, I spied a nice comfortable bench to sit on. I sat down. When the train came and I went to get up, I found myself stuck to the bench. Why? It has been painted green and was still sticky, yet some wag had removed the “Wet Paint” sign. I now had green stripes on the back of my pants, and in my youthful zeal indifference, I went to work anyway.
This is why wearing white in New York is never a good idea.
Isn’t this supposed to be a review of this volume, Jeff?
Thanks for keeping me on track, Goodreader, but I really did love those pants.
Brian Wood picks up where Warren Ellis left off: trying to endow Moon Knight with a “cool” factor. Greg Smallwood also does a yeoman’s job of giving the art some pizazz.
I don’t mind a little pizazz on occasion, as long as the pizazzfulness doesn’t derail the reader’s ability to follow the story.
A quickie summary for my buddy, Anne: Konshu is growing weary of Spector’s mood swings (read: Spector’s got multiple personalities, which he can cycle through in minutes) and looks for a more stable host. This leaves Spector quite literally hanging.
Bottom Line: Wood crams a lot into these six issues, including a dialogue on the nature of the vigilante and revenge, but the plot line has a tendency to wander. Still, it’s a fun, quick read.
