Marvel announced today that it will be releasing an ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT Moon Knight series that will debut in 2016.  One of the most controversial characters in the Marvel Universe Moon Knight has had a cult following since his inception in 1975.  For a character that has been in less than 200 comics since Marc Spector began his run as Moon Knight its amazing that Marvel will invest an entire series into him.  From the description below it seems this series will be a psychological thriller pitting Marc in against himself

Marc Spector has been defending New York City for years as the masked vigilante known as Moon Knight. Or has he? Waking up in an insane asylum shakes that confidence. Turns out he’s been institutionalized since he was a child. But that can’t be true. Can it? Today, Marvel is pleased to announce MOON KNIGHT #1 – the brand new series coming next year from creators Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men, Sweet Tooth) and Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight)!

His mind is full of identities, and he no longer knows which is real. Now residing in a mental health facility, his thoughts are clouded and he has no idea what to believe. If he calls to Khonshu, he believes the ancient Egyptian lunar god will answer. Is this a sign he still clings to his sanity, or has it slipped from him completely? If Khonshu answers his prayers – what could he ask in return this time?

Marvel brings on a new writer for Moon Knight, Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men, Sweet Tooth) a talented writer.  

“To me Marc is a very ill man,” says series writer Jeff Lemire.

“And being Moon Knight is either going to be a part of that illness, and ultimately destroy him, or it is going to behis path to salvation.”

While the artwork is helmed by veteran Moon Knight artist Greg Smallwood (one of my favorite artist in the Marvel Universe).

Dive deep into Moon Knight’s psyche on a mad trip through Manhattan as Lemire and Smallwood bring you a super hero adventure unlike any you’ve read before! Prepare for an all-new MOON KNIGHT #1 – coming Spring 2016!
