Moon Knight #1 will continue the exciting wave of All-New Marvel NOW! series with a fresh and sensational take on Marc Spector and his vigilante alter ego Moon Knight!

“The touchtone for this book, for me, has been ‘Weird Crime.’ Both ground-level action and high strangeness,” says Ellis in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is a take on Moon Knight that unifies all the previous takes, making the character whole and taking him forward into a new kind of crime fiction.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have this book out in front of readers. Moon Knight is one the most fascinating characters in the Marvel library and the depths that Warren, Declan and colorist Jordie Bellaire are taking him to will guarantee this book fits perfectly alongside acclaimed books like Daredevil, Hawkeye and Black Widow,” says Editor Stephen Wacker.  “This is the comic you had no idea you were waiting your entire life for.”

As a mercenary turned super hero, Marc Spector has faced down everything from werewolves, super villains to his own fractured psyche. Fearsome foes and gruesome threats permeate the darkest corners of New York City. Is Moon Knight ready for NYC? Better yet, is NYC ready for him?

360 Returns Have Gone Down Since MS Announcement

New York Times had the chance to speak to a GameStop executive about the Xbox360 sales.

The GameStop executives said they have noticed that sales of Microsoft’s XBox 360 have not been hurt by the machines’ widely reported design defects, which cause the consoles to fail. “All I can say is that we have not seen anything negative from that,” Mr. McKenzie said. “We track our returns, and returns have actually gone down since they made that announcement, and we haven’t seen any effect on enthusiasm for the 360.”

Halo 3 is a big part of the buzz around the 360. The executives would not say how many pre-orders they have taken for the Microsoft game, but, Mr. McKenzie said, “Halo 3 is on track probably to be the largest release that we have had in the history of the company.”
