It has been announced that Moon Knight will return as one of the series being rebooted in Marvel’s All-New, All-Different initiative next year. Written by Jeff Lemire and drawn by Greg Smallwood, the series will follow a real mind-trip as Marc Spector must finally take control of his personality disorder to reclaim his place as the vigilante Moon Knight. A major running theme in the Moon Knight comics over the years has been the character’s split personalities and questionable sanity, both as people and as heroes. It seems these personalities are now landing Marc Spector…or Jake Lockely…or whoever…in a mental health facility where he may finally question his own sanity as much as everyone else already did. Marc is still convinced that if he calls out to the Egyptian lunar god Khonshu he will be answered and given back his powers, but the only issue is not knowing what kind of price will come along with the deity’s help.
The book will release in the spring of 2016 after the big initial releases from the reboot has already be established. Judging by the artwork provided by Marvel Comics, it seems the book will be presented in black and white, which could have a number of thematic reasons behind it. Whether it is used to differentiate personalities, his warped perception, the dull sterility of the metal institution, or just because it looks cool, it will definitely be something that sets the book apart from other Marvel titles.
