Happy New Comics Wednesday 4/2/14 - Moon Knight / Manapul Detective Comics / Harrison Wood Artist Spotlight edition!
Warren Ellis' second issue of Moon Knight is just as charming as the first issue - great stuff, so good to finally have a good Moon Knight comic! The creative team of the New 52 Flash as moved on to Detective Comics and while I'm sad to see them leave Flash, their first issue of Detective is REALLY good! Ultimate Spider-Man #200 (shown here with both covers) is a Ultimate universe celebration of Peter Parker and is one of Bendis' strongest writing in some time - great character moments! While I haven't read the new Aquaman comic pictured above yet, it's supposed to set up DC's Future's end upcoming BIG comic that will introduce Batman Beyond into the DC universe!
