One of the most daunting tasks when it comes to reading comics is the simple act of starting, particularly where to start. Many of these characters have been around for over half a century with a rich history. Fortunately, many of them have a straight forward origin that are well-known amongst the general public. Not only that, aside from a few tweaks, they've largely stayed the same. Marc Spector, the street fighting Moon Knight however has had a gallery of different origins and takes on the character's tone that beginning to read, let alone write the character, and understand his complex background is a challenge that can turn people off. Writer Jeff Lemire has taken that and flipped it on its head, as he's used that to create a stellar psychological thriller, mystery, horror story.
