Warren Ellis to pit Moon Knight against ‘weird crime’ in Marvel series
Moon Knight may not yet be a marquee Marvel character, but he’s acclaimed writer Warren Ellis’ kind of weird.
A mercenary brought back to life by an ancient Egyptian god, the moneyed, gadget-equipped vigilante alter ego...
Via Bleeding Cool:
This is what the season one books should have been. Most of those have been terrible, and at best they've been unremarkable.

I read the Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1. I enjoyed it, the dialogue was funny and the plot is interesting. My only problem is that Storm and Emma have Barbie Doll hips (though the rest of them are ok) and Ellis' criticizing of certain Afirican nations kind of took me out of the story. I...
I don't know if anyone else picked this up (seeing as how much of the Ultimate Universe is farting around with lackluster to downright horrible stories), but I really enjoyed it.
As the previews have shown, Banner and Stark are trying to figure out what makes the Hulk Hulk. So Stark shoves...
Re: Astonishing X-Men - series discussion (spoilers)
Wizard has announced that Ellis' run on Astonishing X-Men: Second Stage (thread now renamed) will begin in July.
The cast? The same.
So that begs the question: If it's the same, who's not coming back?

Anybody ever read this. It's basically the exact opposite of "Marvels".
The tagline is...
"For every kiss, a bullet in the face.
For every action, a reaction.
For every event, there exists in potential,
a mirror event, an exactly opposite possibility.
If the world you know is one...

The reason I'm not gonna delve into the summary is because that's pretty much it. I'm sure it's going...
If this series is really an ultimization of the old New Universe series I'd like to see it connected to the Ultimate multverse in some way. Maybe something really subtle, but something that definately connects it to the UU.
I never wanted any crossovers with the UU and other universes...
F-IN' AWESOME ISSUE!
It was all great. Hilarious. Nextwave is the ****! Art is better than before. Still some things I didn't like about it here and there.

I subscribe to Ellis's Bad Signal newsletter, so I've received a steady stream of email after email talking about the numbers on this book. It was to the point where I was tired of hearing about it.
But I was in my shop yesterday and had a light week, and happened to...
I just reread the first 4 issues of this book...anyone else getting this? Lots of complaining about the scheduling, but this is one of the best "superhero" books available right now and the best Iron Man story I've ever read, by far.
It's a relaunch; they're updating it for modern times...
