Sentenced: The 4-6-14 Edition (late edition)
From Moon Knight (2014) #2
All nine of them. The entire special operations group who obtained and directed and discarded him in the field.
Warren Eillis is a comic book writer who, until a couple months ago, had been focused on having a successful career outside of comics. His comics work is seminal, and the works based on his ideas are seeing a lot of success as well. Be it either comics, or in other media (RED was based on one of his comics, Extremis was from his Iron Man run, etc.).
With Moon Knight he has returned to writing a monthly comic and others appear to be in the works. This is a good thing for any who loves the medium of comics. Ellis pushes the boundaries of comics, both in content and as a medium, and he does it with a evil grin and with one eye towards the future and another in the past.
This issue is a variation on a number of things, it starts off telling the story of a number of people all at once, one panel per person per page. And it drops you in with no back story beyond what you know about Moon Knight (even if this was your first issue, the character background on the first page would give you enough to enjoy the issue). And then it turns everything around on you, not because it changes the story or there is a plot twist, simply because it points something out to you that you should have noticed.
These sentence manages to lay out the entire story and tell you everything you need to know. And yet, there is so much more going on. It is especially nice to see someone who has such understanding of the medium and how to write for it and how to work with an artist/a team of artists to bring that vision in to being.
