The new MOON KNIGHT series by Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey looks HARD!

Our Facebook peeps showed interest in the new Warren Ellis-penned Moon Knight series, and since we are suckers for the changing faces of Marvel's derivative dark knight detective, here's a preview of the Moon Knight #1.
Here's the sales pitch:
Marc Spector is Moon Knight!...Or is he? It’s hard to tell these days, especially when New York’s wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and three—that’s right, count ‘em—different personalities! But even with the mystical force of Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the night’s greatest detective save a city that’s as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Marvel’s most mind-bending adventure begins NOW as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York’s most bizarre mysteries!

I'm not sure what it is about men in white suits that does it for him, but Warren Ellis is clearly diving into that man of mystery mote again with the mentally challenged, yet mentally superior, Moon Knight. For those unfamiliar, Moon Knight is super-rich ex-mercenary Marc Spector, who becomes mentally unbalanced after experiencing the Egyptian moon-god Khonshu, leading to him to becoming Khonshu's agent of justice or something. 
But really, Moon Knight's just a really sweet knockoff of Batman. And while it's sometimes hinted at that Bruce Wayne might be one bat shy of a belfry, Spector is obviously and irrevocably nuts. But in a good way. That's all you really need to know about Moon Knight going in, besides the fact that no one is better at exploiting superhero nonsense for literary effect than Warren Ellis (see Planetary, StormWatch, the Authority, etc), and it looks like he's throwing some serious heat at the strike zone on this new Moon Knight series, which is in stores now.
