It’s Werewolf by Night vs. Moon Knight this Halloween in ‘Moon Knight Annual’ #1

Werewolf by Night attacks in October’s MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL #1 by Jed MacKay and Federico Sabbatini.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has released details on a special Moon Knight Annual set for release right in time for Halloween. Out on October 26th, the one-shot is written by Jed MacKay with art by Federico Sabbatini and will feature a bloody reunion between Moon Knight and an iconic Marvel Comics character whom he shares deep roots with—Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night!

“It’s been great seeing people respond to our MOON KNIGHT series, and it’s always a bit of a thrill to give folks even more- and MOON KNIGHT ANNUAL #1 was the place to revisit some old history,” MacKay explained.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“Moon Knight has changed a lot since he first did battle with the Werewolf by Night, but so has Jack Russell, and having the opportunity to see how these two interact now, all these years later, has been a lot of fun. And Jack isn’t the only player in Moon Knight’s history who is turning up when Federico Sabbatini joins us for another adventure (and draws the hell out of it, I must add).”

So what’s Moon Knight Annual #1 about?

In the Darkhold, there is a prophecy of how a god might die. Jack Russell, more familiar with that cursed tome than most, would like very much to kill a god and save his people, the people bound in servitude to the moon. But to fulfill that prophecy requires the blood of the Fist of Khonshu, and Moon Knight doesn’t bleed easily.
