Official Press Release

Moon Knight has made a triumphant return in his very own ongoing series thanks to Charlie Huston and David Finch. Now, you can see how Huston and Finch captured lightening in a bottle and restored the Fist of Khonshu to his former greatness in Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut.

Featuring Charlie Huston's script of the first issue as well as early sketches by David Finch, Moon Knight #1 Director's Cut is the definitive look behind how Moon Knight became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe once again.

Moon Knight #1 was an overwhelmingly successful relaunch, especially considering that Moon Knight hasn't had his own series in almost a decade. Retailers were happy to report that Moon Knight #1 was flying off their shelves complimenting the critical success it has received.

Robert Guadagno, retailer, New Moon Comics said, "This is the first time, in over 30 years of my involvement in this industry (as a fan and currently a retailer) that I've read the same book multiple times in one sitting. Everything about Moon Knight #1 was perfect to me, the story; although not what I expected at the end, was heart wrenching. David's art was exactly what Moon Knight deserves – Impact, emotion, and most of all respect!"

Greg Bolger of Academy Comics said, "Fans are loving this series so far and the reaction is extremely positive. Charlie Huston and David Finch hit a home run with this gritty book and deliver fans the Moon Knight they've been waiting for."
