Marvel’s Moon Knight recently starred in his Disney+ series with characters played by Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke in leading roles. Unsurprisingly, Moon Knight is a far more established character in the comics. He has relationships with many characters in the supernatural community, such as Blade and Ghost Rider. His associations reach as high as the Avengers. For example, Moon Knight: Black, White, and Blood #2 features the Sorcerer Supreme approached by Mister Knight in a desperate plea to rid himself of his dissociative identity disorder. This affliction fractures Marc Spector’s mind into multiple personalities, and it’s reaching a boiling point. Benjamin Percy’s and Vanesa R. Del Rey’s story, “The Empty Tomb,” explores opposing perspectives.
What Happens In The Preview?
Marc Spector shows up to the Sanctum Santorum dressed in his Mister Knight attire, complaining about waking up every morning in someone else’s blood. He has no memory of the events that transpired. Furthermore, the voices sound like “confused radio stations.” This makes it difficult to focus on what’s in front of him—the here and now. Doctor Strange proposes an alternate perspective, saying that his condition is a part of Marc. It’s a strength, not a weakness. The preview ends with Mister Knight proclaiming that he can’t take it anymore and calls himself a living sarcophagus (hence the story’s title “Empty Tomb”).
What is Moon Knight: Black, White, And Blood?
The comic is a collaboration between multiple creators from the comic book industry. Each issue features several stories with Khonshu’s avatar in action. Issue #1 collected stories from various creators like Jonathan Hickman, Marc Guggenheim, and Murewa Ayodele. Meanwhile, Moon Knight: Black, White and Blood #2 features two additional stories from David Pepose, Leonardo Romero, Chris Sotomayor, and Patch Zircher.
Featuring cover art by Ryan Stegman, JP Mayer, and Carlos Lopez and variant cover art by Dustin Weaver, Moon Knight: Black, White and Blood #2 releases June 15 from Marvel.
