ITK Newsletter, no. CV: LUNAR-PICK Comic Review! – Moon Knight Annual, #1

Loonies here, there and everywhere!

This newsletter is coming in a bit late but that’s because the Temple of Khonshu never rests! We’ve been working away collecting some grand things to showcase on the show and topping the bill for our huge show coming up this weekend, we’ll have a review of the brand spankingly new Moon Knight annual released only just this week –

PHASE OF THE MOON: (SUPERSEDED BY NEW COMIC RELEASE)

LUNAR-PICK: NEW COMIC BOOK REVIEW

MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL, ISSUE #1

Written by Cullen Bunn, Art by Ibrahim Moustafa

Truth be told, I’ve actually not had the chance to read it yet as I’ve been running around like a headless chook arranging various things, but judging from the response we received in our ITK Community (on the Spoiler Post) and after having taken a sneaky peek at some of the comments, it seems that the annual was received quite favourably and all signs point to a positive story – I can’t wait to read it!

Joining the two High Priests (of myself and Connor) for this review will be two seasoned Loonies – Tommy ‘The Man on the Street’ and ‘The Power of’ Chad. It’ll be heaps of fun having theses guys not he show and between the four of us, we’ll have plenty to talk about!

SPOILER DISCUSSION THREAD

Our spoiler thread is already out there and ready to receive your comments. This time ’round, I’ve expanded the reach with not only there being a thread posted up on the Facebook Page and Group, but also on Twitter, Instagram and now on our Discord Server!

I’ll leave this as a stock standard blurb from now on, for all discussion threads…click the links and read the italics below for some pointers in getting your thoughts in!

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!

If you aren’t really a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram person, you can always reach us on any of the other platforms below – 

We love hearing from you and typically your comments generate thought provoking discussion on the show and allows us to dive deeper into the issues – don’t hesitate to give it a go!

THE HUNT FOR KHONSHU’S GOLDEN SCEPTRE 

The next chapter in the serial is due to drop this coming episode! Look out for it – it will be Episode 5 and features ‘Geronimo’ Johnson and ‘Cold Case’ Kurtz. Our good friend and Omega Level Loony, Anthony Styko also provides his very versatile vocals to this next part to the ongoing saga – will the Loonies ever find the Golden Sceptre? Just how deep does this conspiracy run? And further to last episode – are even more gods involved in this? Stay tuned for the next thrilling part to this ongoing adventure!

#ITKMoonKnight 2019 Fantasy Comic League – August Results & 1st Season: Final Results!

The overall season tally ended up quite close, with organiser Brian stating that there has never been such a close finish for a division in FCL history!

Rey  – 8 points (272 score)
Tommy  – 8 (260)
Connor– 6 (229, 96 best month)
Dustin– 6 (229, 62 best month)
Chad– 0
 
Basically Tommy and myself tied, with the differential being overall season points tally…so I scraped in by the skin of my teeth!
 
Connor and Dustin had it even closer with them tied with both their Season points and overall season tally! It went down to whomever had the best points scored in a month, and Connor took that out, presumably from the month of July when he won that month…

It’s been one helluva season and with the close of our inaugural season, I’m happy to announce that the #ITKMoonKnight division in the FCL will be back for a season 2! Nearly all the same players will return, the only difference being that Connorshu had to decline due to a busy and hectic work schedule, so we are happy to welcome honourary Loony member, Jason Albaugh to our division! Jason is a friend of Tommy’s and I’m not sure of his FCL experience, but in any case it will make for a fun second season!

GUEST APPEARANCES

No guest appearance from me during this week…just content to plug away at both ITK and LSK (Last Sons of Krypton, my other podcast) stuff…!

It had been a bumper last couple of weeks, so I thought it best to take a back seat for a while, chill, and catch up on my comics!…

Well that’s it for me for the time being – just getting pumped for the upcoming show…with plenty of things happening in the ITK community (comics, music, serial, Fantasy League), this upcoming episode will surely be a jam packed one!! Time to recharge the batteries before the onslaught ahead!

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