Eclipse of the Loon

Took a week off from posting and I might just do so again or even longer after this one, but I wanted to at least get this out. It's this month's newest skit, starring Moon Knight and Mickey Mouse.


Honestly the fact that Moon Knight doesn't have a show on Netflix or something planned for Disney Plus is really frustrating, especially considering just how much mileage a show about Moon Knight's ongoing battle with mental illness would get. I'm thinking at least two seasons' worth of material based of both recent MK runs by Huston, Ellis, Bunn, and Lemire, with a little Doug Monach thrown in there.

Haha! I know next to nothing about Moon Knight but based on this, I'd watch the hell out of the show.

Hope to see you around soon, my man.

Wikipedia, much like Google, is your friend mate. I'm sure you'll learn all you need to know about him to catch up, but basically he a mercenary that was betrayed by a former allie and left for dead. The Moon God Knonshu resurrected him and became his avatar/servant with occasional super powers. Later on writers decided it'd be cooler if he developed multiple personality disorder, and it stuck, so now he has legit mental issues with any of his 4 personalities sometimes taking over his body. Fun shit. I highly recommend reading Charles Huston's 2006 run, as well as Ellis, Bunn, and Lemire's MK runs. Max Bemis is the current writer, well was, since they cancelled the series with issue 200. He's kind of a hit or miss writer is the general perception of his MK work.
