-Cullen Bunn, local boy made good, has been delivering some wildly fun Marvel comics over the last couple years (Fearless Defenders, Deadpool Kills…, Night of the Living Deadpool) and now it’s time for him to blend that pure joy for the medium with the darkness of his creator-owned series, Sixth Gun.

Moon Knight #1

-Basically Marvel‘s version of Batman, but three times the crazy because Moon Knight‘s sporting three separate personalities!

-One of Marvel‘s many unsung characters, any Moon Knight series promises to be a twisty, violent ride. . .

-Little is known about the plot of this series, but, in my experience, that indicates a story so wild and unexpected that they don’t want to spoil it.  Trust us, it’s the must buy Marvel book for the week!
