With Oscar Issac’s recent confirmation that he will be donning the white cowl and cape of Marvel’s Moon Knight for an upcoming Disney+ series, attention is once again on back issues of what was once one of Marvel’s cult comic heroes.
All the added attention and speculation has caused Moon Knight’s first appearances and the start of his first on-going series to skyrocket, so luckily Marvel is providing those who have always loved the psychologically complex Avenger and those who want to know more about him with a cost-effective way to enjoy his original comics.
Moon Knight: Bad Moon Rising Epic Collection is coming back into print for just this purpose and contains: Werewolf By Night (1972) #32-33, Marvel Spotlight (1971) #28-29, Marvel Preview (1975) #21, Defenders (1972) #47-50, Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man (1976) #22-23, Marvel Two-in-One (1974) #52, Moon Knight (1980) #1-4, and all of the rare (and adult-oriented) Moon Knight back-up stories that originally appeared in Hulk Magazine (1978) #11-15, 17-18, 20.
The creative talent responsible for the original Moon Knight stories includes writers Doug Moench, Bill Mantlo, Steven Grant, David Anthony Craft, Roger Slifer, and John Warner and art by Bill Sienkiewicz, Gene Colan, Mike Zeck, Keith Pollard, Jim Craig, Keith Giffen, Don Perlin, and Jim Mooney.
The Moon Knight: Bad Moon Rising Epic Collection will be available in comic shops on June 2 and in bookstores on June 15.
