A Night Fight and the Long Road Back in Moon Knight #2


 Marc Spector has hit rock bottom and is unable to live his former life as a superhero.  Find out in Moon Knight #2 what started the former hero’s fall from grace and what lengths he will now go in order to become a superhero once again. 

 

The return of Moon Knight to an ongoing series has left fans and critics abuzz, especially after the superstar team of Charlie Huston and David Finch’s first issue.

 

Dexter K. Flowers of BrokenFrontier.com says, "A great character has once again been brought to life by a great creative team, and the result is so much more than the Moon Knight I remember."

 

Adam White of Comiccritique.com says, "From page one, Huston grabs your attention and takes you for a ride, succinctly defining Moon Knight’s motivation while simultaneously giving you a tour inside the character’s mind and his actions on the street."
 
After the pulse-pounding and shocking first issue, pick up Moon Knight #2 to learn why Moon Knight slipped away from the spotlight and if his god Khonshu will help him return to his former glory; plus, one of the most brutal fights you will see in the pages of a comic this year.

X-Men Classics Reimagined in X-Men: Fairy Tales

 

In the tradition of the classic X-Men story "Kitty’s Fairy Tale," the new limited series X-Men: Fairy Tales takes everybody’s favorite mutants and thrusts them into whole new worlds of myths and fables
 
The first issue of X-Men: Fairy Tales features an X-Men reinvisioning
of the classic Japanese tale of Momotaro, the Peach-Boy.  In X-Men Fairy Tales, Momotaro is born with a peach pit for an eye and, when removed, is able to shoot ruby-red optic blasts.  As a result of his bizarre powers, Momotaro remains in seclusion with his adopted parents, afraid of how the outside world will treat someone so different. 
 
When an unassuming bald Monk comes across the Peach-Boy, he shows Momotaro that his gift is something to be proud of.  So the Peach-Boy joins up with the Monk in order to defeat the evil demons that have plagued his lands and captured a familiar-looking red-haired princess. 

 

X-Men: Fairy Tales #1 is not to be missed as classic X-Men stories and global fables and myths are interwoven to create all-new stories.
