Imposter Finch, Real Colleen


Chad from Comic Lair at the NYCC impersonating artist David Finch. This was before most of the artist arrived for the public opening.

Moon Knight 1
David Finch, Charlie Huston

The return of Moon Knight had a lot of fans drooling. I can't feel the level of excitement, because I didn't experience the first go-rounds. But the art is spectacular-- blues and silvers of the citiscapes, reds and purples of the Marlene flashbacks, the despair of the wheelchaired hero.
Charlie Huston's backstory on his 15 year old self reading Moon Knight 25 years ago makes me understand the Spector personalities and different lives in his obsessions. I always enjoy a lost-love story too.

Someone has to do the fun stuff. How can I live like this? The risks? The blood I've spilled? The times I've descended into madness? The times I've died? Hell...how can I live like this? How could I live any other way?

Book of Lost Souls 6

Another Marvel title! Colleen Doran was so great at the NYCC. She was funny and talented, and laughed at herself looking like a schoolteacher. Her art in this BoLS- stained glass, winged creatures, the garden of eden..she can do it all. And Mystery, the cat, is just so cute in these panels; plus adding the wise words of Straczynski- it's the manifestation of what we believe cats would be like if they would talk.

You should be careful. Rooms are like choices...You can get lost and never find your way back again.

'They symbolize forgiveness that will never come.'
'From who?'
'From himself'

It's all about the lost you see. The lost can turn one way or another.

Pick up the Essential Moon Knight. Reprints of a lot of his early appearances and the first ten issues of his first solo series. It's a steal at around $15.

Agree with Randy. Well worth the money.

Also, you've convinced me to give Book of Lost Souls a try, but I'm afraid my LCS only has issues 4-6. Should I hold out and wait until I can start from the beginning with a trade?

P.S. Saw your quote in the NYT article! Excelsior!

R- think I'll try for the Ess MK, so I can be more MK literate!
C-BoLs stands alone pretty well. You could read 6 on its own. Colleen Doran likes #3 a lot, it's the lost-dead-love one.
