Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Moon Knight is essentially Marvel's answer to the question "What if Batman were somehow even more psychologically damaged?" That's not a bad premise, frankly, and the character has had some highly regarded writers and artists telling his stories over the years: Moench, Perlin, Bill Sienkiewicz, Chuck Dixon, J.M. DeMatteis, Kevin Nowlan, Brian Michael Bendis, and Mark Farmer, just to name a few.
Yet despite a history of talented creators, Moon Knight has never quite stuck; of the five attempts at a Moon Knight solo series, none have surpassed 60 issues, and the two most recent, launched in 2006 and 2011, only reached 30 and 12 issues, respectively.
So this is cool. Bestselling Gun Machine novelist and acclaimed comic book writer Warren Ellis is making a return to monthly cape comics for the first time since he concluded his Secret Avengers run last year, and it's as Kelly Sue DeConnick'sco-writer for a special Avengers Assemble arc tying in to Marvel's next crossover event, Inhuamnity.

Labeled "Marvel OGN," the line'
With the 300th and final issueof Vertigo's Hellblazer, out this week, several tumblers shift and lock into place. John Constantine moves to the New 52 on a full-time basis, with a new title beginning in March; the reset button is pushed on his continuity, and the most writer-driven character of the last thirty years is yanked from the comfort and promise of a Mature Readers label and forced to grow up again in a PG-13 world; and the longest-running title in the Vertigo line concludes a twenty year run, as the imprint focuses exclusively on creator-owned comics. It's a sad time for misfits everywhere, as Hellblazer is o
The more cynical amongst you may have thought, now that Warren Ellis is a New York Times best-selling novelist with the release of his second novel Gun Machine, that he would abandon comics like a used-up kleenex and move onto more lucrative, highbrow creative outlets. The more cynical amongst you would be wrong, in that case, with the writer teasing a new project on his website this weekend.

It's a collision of pop culture icons as Wil Wheaton narrates the Ben Templesmith-illustrated book trailer for prolific comics writer Warren Ellis' new prose novel, Gun Machine. All we need to round things out is an appearance by Felicia Day and some level of
The career of Joss Whedon has contained all manner of interesting detours on his way to becoming the director of the third most successful movie of all time, whether it's writing X-Men comics, directing a musical web series or that whole Dollhouse thing.
