According to the August Marvel Solicitation, Issue #6: ” Don’t miss the conclusion of Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire” With Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire leaving the book, the number one question was: Who will be the creative team on Moon Knight? Shalvey answered via Twitter:
That’s right! Brian Wood (X-men) and Greg Smallwood (The Dream Thief) will be the new team on Moon Knight. Wood has worked with Ellis before and has mentioned that he will keep the stories in a similar tone as Ellis and Smallwood had this to say about Moon Knight on Newsarama “He’s the light in a dark world. Unlike a certain pointy-eared vigilante, he doesn’t hide in the shadows; he stands out from them...” Jordie Bellaire is still on the book which is a great way to keep a similar look and feel of the first team and calm the nerves of the nay sayers.
We are sad to see the team go but excited to see what Wood and Smallwood are going to bring to the series. Read the rest of the Newsarama interview HERE. Check out the debut of the new creative in Moon Knight #7 on sale in September! Are you still on board with the book? Sound off below!
