Episode 77 – Saving Scarlet, the Younger

EPISODE 77:

High Priests of Khonshu Connor and Rey return to a comic previously reviewed in an earlier episode!

Yes, this episode is just too good to leave alone, so the two High Priests weigh in yet again to discuss more on Ellis’ absolutely unforgettable issue during his short tenure on Moon Knight – 

PHASE OF THE MOON: WAXING CRESCENT

LUNAR-PICK, MODERN RUN REVIEW:

MOON KNIGHT VOL. 7, ISSUE #5 – ‘SCARLET’

Published  September, 2014

Released  July 2, 2014

Writer –  Warren Ellis

Penciler – Declan Shalvey

Inkers – Declan Shalvey

Colourists –  Jordie Bellaire

Letterers – Chris Eliopoulos

Editors  – Ellie Pyle, Nick Lowe

MOON RATING (out of phases of the Moon):

Connor: Blue Moon πŸŒ– – exceptional

Rey: Blue Moon πŸŒ– – exceptional

There’s a bit of banter about the announcements in the comics/tv/movie/gaming industry which has also piqued the High Priests’ interest…but in the end it’s all about the issue masterfully written by Warren Ellis and skilfully drawn and coloured by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire…

Time to crack open your issues once again – and relive the journey!

Episode 76 – Moon Man or Spider Knight??

EPISODE 76:

High Priest of Khonshu Rey is joined by very special guest (and Spidey aficionado) Chris Jones from the Defenders TV Podcast!

It’s another fun review of a current comic, but it’s with the fun Infinity Warps series which amalgamates Peter Parker with Moon Knight! A great mix of heroes and villains, penned by Dennis Hopeless ensure this conclusion to the two-part series remains light and fun…!

ITK Newsletter, no. LXIX: Moon Knight Vol. 7 #5

 

Loonies!!

A bit of a bait and switch there for you – hope you don’t mind! But for those who aren’t aware, we had advertised a review of the final chapter to INFINITY WARPS: ARACH-KNIGHT #2….but it never happened!

Instead, we thrust upon you a classic review (as was demanded by Khonshu with the Waning Crescent of the Moon) and kickstarted our review of the seminal Doug Moench Moon Knight Volume 1 run!

Fear not, however!

This Friday heralds in a New Moon in the night sky, so that means we are bound to release a ‘Spotlight’ episode, and waht better issue to ‘spotlight’ than theINFINITY WARPS: ARACH-KNIGHT #2!

So Friday we’ll drop our episode which guest stars one-third of the Defenders TV Podcast crew, Chris Jones. Both Chris and I have a good ol’ yarn about the issue and Chris certainly brings in his Spidey perspective on the issue… it’s a cracker of an episode!

This weekend, we’ll be recording another episode and since the Moon turns into a Waxing Crescent, we’ll be looking at a modern run review – one which I’m sure you are all familiar with – 

PHASE OF THE MOON: WAXING CRESCENT

LUNAR-PICK, MODERN RUN REVIEW – 

MOON KNIGHT VOL. 7, ISSUE #5 – ‘SCARLET’

It’s another Warren Ellis / Declan Shalvey issue which has proven so popular with the Loonies (at least here in the community)…

As mentioned on the show, we actually HAVE reviewed this very issue in our Episode 51 ISLA RA SESSIONS with Loony Familiar, Josh ‘Geronimo’ Johnson…but considering our good ol’ (or young!) Connor-Shu would love to talk about it, we thought we’d do it again and so give it a double dose… I’ve said many times before that it is one of – if not THE – favourite Moon Knight issue ever…so definitely worth checking out!

Please let us know your thoughts below, or email, tweet or chat with us your feedback!

If you DON’T want your comments broadcast, please just add, “(DNB)” at the end of your comment, and we’ll be sure not to broadcast it. We’ll pick a few comments from here and discuss on the show!

Alright, time to get reading in prep for the show…am so behind with my current pull list at the moment…but there’s plenty of good comics regardless…old or new!!

Catch you around!

Yes, despite previous announcements, we ARE finally reviewing the inaugural issue of the first solo title of Moon Knight, penned by Doug Moench and drawn by equal legend Bill Sienkiewicz!

After a run of cameo appearances, we finally get to the very first MK title for review… get ready for heavy gushing and fanboy-ing to occur!!

ITK Newsletter, no. LXVIII: Infinity Warps – Here Comes Arach-Knight Again!

Hey there Loonies!

It’s another newsletter for this week, prepping all the Loonies out there with what to expect for our upcoming show!

Now, I would like to just lay it all on the line here and claim that Moon Knight Vol. 1 #1 appears to have the same sort of curse that befell the family of Bruce Lee, and the actors who portrayed Superman… there just seems to be something which has prevented us from reviewing it!

And the next episode is no exception! So, DESPITE what was said last episode, the Lunar-Pick CLASSIC Review for Doug Moench’s Moon Knight Vol. 1 #1 will not be carried out this weekend…and we’ll need to await the next Waning Crescent in order to do so.

In it’s stead, we have the second and final issue of,

LUNAR-PICK, CURRENT RUN REVIEW – 

INFINITY WARPS, ARACH-KNIGHT #2

We should have the full complement of High Priests which will be fun (we haven’t done that in a while!), but we’ll also be joined by a special guest, and Spidey afficianado, Chris Jones from the Defenders TV Podcast! We’ll be firing on all cylinders!!

As always, current run issues always supersedes any review which are deemed via the phases of the moon, so we’ll be shelving Moench’s Moon Knight #1 yet again, for another day!

This issue is alot of fun and continues where Hopeless left off with issue #1. It’s a short and sharp arc, but anything to do with Moony (albeit in an amalgamated form) is always a pleasure to read!

As usual, I’ll post up a discussion thread on the FB group if anyone wants to add their thoughts for the issue. Of course, there are other conventional ways to contact us and drop us a line – 

Apologies for the slight tardiness of this newsletter – things have been a bit hectic here, but all under control! Speaking of which, I gotta get back to looking after the pasta on the stove – so I’ll leave you here – please be sure to give it a good read, and share your thoughts if you can!! This should be a fun one!!

Episode 74 – Moon Knight Fan Film Review!

EPISODE 74:

High Priest of Khonshu, Connor(Shu) makes his long awaited return to the show and as always he injects a waxing spark to Rey’s waning crescent!

This time around, it’s a new type of review, courtesy of a Full Moon:

PHASE OF THE MOON: FULL MOON

MOON & STARS FILM/TV REVIEW – MOON KNIGHT CHAPTER 1 (A FAN FILM)

We are fortunate enough to have scored some time with actor, director, writer, producer Alex Looman – who also happens to be a fellow Loony!

It was great to be able to peek behind the curtain and listen to Alex as he took us through the ins and outs of making a fan film, as well as his love for OUR favourite character, Moon Knight himself!

Add to this a little bit of news and banter, and you have another 90 minutes of action packed podcast listening for your sweet, sweet ears – hope you enjoy!

ITK Newsletter, no. LXVII: Moon Knight Fan Film!

Hello Loony Listeners!!

It’s another fresh week and coming up, we have something of a first (kind of) on the upcoming episode – Friday will give us our first Full Moon, hence we’ll be doing a TV/Film review!

It certainly has been a while since the last time Connor(shu) and I had a good look at Moony’s on screen appearances. Last time it was teh animated appearance of Moon Knight in the Secret Wars Avengers Animated series at the beginning of the year – this time, it’s an honest to goodness fan film! Yessiree – it’s made from alot of love for the character and comes courtesy of one of the Loonies themselves – Alex Looman!

Added to this, we are hoping(!) to get Alex on the show to talk us through his short film, as well as ask him of his plans for more Moon Knight down the track, or other Marvel properties which may be in the works…

If you’ve not had a look at the fan film yet (from Alex’s branded production of YTMCU), you can find it here – 

YTMCU – Moon Knight Fan Film

If you’d like to drop us your thoughts, or if there is anything you’d like to ask Alex, please contact us on any of the platforms below – 

This should be a fun one and very much look forward to having a good chat with Alex – it will be interesting to know how he got started, why he chose Moon Knight as first choice to do a fan film, as well as what his favourite Moon Knight run is!

This is not to be missed – please be sure to check out the film and hope to have you with us to listen and enjoy some good ol’ fashioned discussion!! πŸ™‚

Alrighty – that’s it from me in this here newsletter – we forever wish for you….

Episode 73 – Thank You for Everything, Stan…

EPISODE 73:

High Priests of Khonshu Rebecca and Rey are joined by guest Loony, “The Power of…” Chad to pay tribute to the recent passing of Marvel and comic book legend, Stan Lee.

Stan Lee changed the face of comics and along with the likes of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Bill Everett and John Romita Snr. gave us some of the most memorable and loved characters we know today.

We salute Stan Lee and reflect on the thoughts of the Loony Community – here’s to you…we’re forever grateful…

DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF STAN LEE (1922-2018)

ITK Newsletter, no. LXVI: Vale Stan Lee (1922-2018)

Hello Dear Loonies,

As you may already know, it is with a heavy heart that on November 13th, the world learnt of the passing of Stan Lee – the face of Marvel and creator and writer of many a classic character and story.

With this news, we thought it only fitting that we have our next episode as a Tribute to Stan Lee – now, I know he had very little to do with Moon Knight, and that this is a Moon Knight fan base and podcast, but the fact is that we’d not have Moon Knight, nor the Marvel universe if it weren’t for Stan Lee.

For one episode at least, we’ll shelve the news and reviews on Moon Knight, and pay respect to the man whom everyone seemed to love. We won’t be down int he dumps however, so don’t think that it will be an episode full of sorrow and grief. What we want to do is celebrate Stan Lee and give him a fitting acknowledgement from our little fan podcast across the pond!

I’ve set up a ‘Tribute Thread’ in our ITK Facebook Group, and I urge you to send in your thoughts on Stan Lee – what he, Marvel and the characters he created, mean to you and how it’s touched your lives! It will be such an honour to read them out on the show and share our stories together, and our love for Marvel and comics in general.

If you aren’t a member of the Facebook Group (why not?…Come join!) then you can reach out to us on any of the platforms below – 

We’ll have the High Priests and guest Loony ‘The Power of Chad’ on the show. We’ll do a summary of Stan Lee’s career, life and achievements as well as our own thoughts on how Stan Lee and his creations have affected our lives. 

We’ll also have our Discord Server open so you can catch us on the show live, and send us your thoughts there too!

We aim to record around 9.30pm (GMT +11), Friday 16th November

If you are unsure how to get onto our Discord server, just hit us up, and we can lead you through it!

So put your crescent darts away from one night, and join us in remembering a great creator, writer and man….! Hope to hear from you!

May Khonshu Watch Over the Denizens of the (K)Night,

Rey
