MOON KNIGHT #13-17 (Cullen Bunn / Ron Ackins)

Après Warren Ellis & Declan Shalvey et Brian Wood & Greg Smallwood, ce sera au tour du scénariste Cullen Bunn et au dessinateur Ron Ackins de reprendre le Moon Knight sous sa forme actuelle de ‘‘détective du bizarre’’ le temps d’un arc en 5 chapitres (Moon Knight #13-17).
Comme ses prédécesseurs, le scénariste annonce des histoires courtes en un seul numéro. Il affirme cependant qu’il ramène les personnalités multiples de Mark Spektor que Warren Ellis avait délibérément repoussées lors de sa reprise.

Moon Knight #13 sort en mars 2015.

[quote=“Cullen Bunn”]Cast your mind back to 2005, and you’ll find me attending the World Horror Convention in New York City. During the show, there were going to be “pitch sessions” with Marvel editors, and I was prepared with a couple of series ideas. One of these proposals was for “The Macabre Moon Knight” which would be a series of dark, horrific tales with Mr. Knight as the star. Of course, right before I walked into the pitch session, someone told me a new Moon Knight series had already been announced. So, I put the pitch back in my folder and mumbled my way aimlessly through the meeting.

So, yeah, Moon Knight is a character I’ve always loved. I remember reading and re-reading his first appearance in “Werewolf By Night.” At the time, I didn’t know it was his first appearance. I just knew this cool character was throwing little crescent-shaped blades at the werewolf. I thought he was kind of menacing and creepy, the way he threw these little knives, leaving them sticking out of the werewolf’s flesh.

Aside from the recent Warren Ellis issues, I have really fond memories of the “Fist of Khonshu” series from the mid-'80s. My friends and I used to read comics during lunch, and that was a favorite as I recall. As little later (and behind the times, I guess), I really got into those early '80s Bill Sienkiewicz issues.[/quote]

Oh non, pas encore les personnalités…
Ellis a eu grandement raison de s’en débarrasser, c’est devenu un gimmick lourd qui tourne en rond.

J’ai pris le TPB avant-hier, je l’ai lu hier soir à l’hôtel, et j’ai trouvé cette prestation très sympa. Les trois premiers épisodes sont des enquêtes à mystère, avec leur lot de bastons et de cases muettes, totalement dans l’ambiance Ellis, mais avec une portée plus terre-à-terre, l’enjeu étant de savoir si ce que voit le héros (et donc le lecteur) est vrai ou pas. Le quatrième précise les choses puisqu’il introduit des ennemis directement connecté à la “foi” de Moon Knight et à son rôle de “berger” ou de “prêtre”. Le cinquième confronte le justicier à son ennemi. Fatalement, quand on montre les choses, quand on apporte la clé du mystère, on risque de décevoir, le suspense étant toujours plus intéressant que son explication. C’est le cas ici, d’autant que c’est un peu rapide. La toute fin permet de renouer avec l’aspect indéfini du début, entre rationnel et inexpliqué. J’apprécie en particulier le costume que Bunn taille aux sectes et à la dimension politique de l’entraide : il mélange les genres, tapant sur les mouvements sectaires, mais aussi sur la bien-pensance humanitaire et sur la société moteur d’exclusion, mais c’est plutôt bien mené, avec notamment un jeu constant sur les litanies répétitives.
Bref, pas le meilleur de la série (c’est le Wood qui me semble le tome le plus convaincant), mais loin d’être honteux.
