Official Press Release

Mercenary. Millionaire. Avenger. Marc Spector has been many things in his life, but after years away, he wants back in the super-hero game. In Moon Knight #1, the Egyptian god Khonshu who originally turned Spector into Moon Knight may just grant his wish.

A brand-new ongoing series, Moon Knight will return this April thanks to acclaimed novelist Charlie Huston (Caught Stealing, Six Bad Things) and super-star artist David Finch (New Avengers). The first 6-issue arc entitled "The Bottom" will see the return of some old Marc Spector villains as well as some brand new threats. We'll also see Moon Knight fighting his own mental instability.

Huston says, "I've always been a huge fan of Doug Moench's original Moon Knight series. His dark themes tackled complicated issues and served up moral quandaries for the men and women in tights. I don't think it can be done any better than it was by Moench, but I will certainly try to do Moon Knight justice. One thing I will promise fans...it will be dark!"

Marc Spector wants to feel cartilage and bone exploding beneath his fists. He wants back in the game. He wants the fun stuff. In Moon Knight #1, the only question is…what is it going to cost him?

CAPTAIN AMERICA 65TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL

Written by ED BRUBAKER

Pencils & Cover by ERIC WIGHT

Celebrating 65 years of Captain America, we bring you an extra-long special that weaves together Cap's modern stories with his fighting days in World War Two! Cap's newest enemy, General Aleksander Lukin, the head of one of the most powerful corporations in the world, is attempting to buy a piece of land in Germany, and he won't take no for an answer. What does he want there? The answer to that can only be found in an untold tale from the war -- a story that finds Cap and Bucky fighting alongside Sgt. Fury and the Howling Commandos behind enemy lines, trying to stop the Red Skull from launching a monstrous attack on the Allies unlike anything ever seen before. This dynamite, down-and-dirty WW2-era special also ties directly into the current CAPTAIN AMERICA series, so Cap fans won't want to miss it! From acclaimed creators Ed Brubaker and Eric Wight (The Escapist, The OC).
