      About two years ago I reviewed the first volume in the Essential Moon Knight collection and mentioned that it was an excellent series. This follow up volume collects a couple dozen issues from 1982 and 1983 and they are off the charts excellent.

      Moon Knight was always an odd character in the sense that he


      was a B grade hero who had the benefit of a lot of tremendous writing associated with the series.

      (It was the writing and not the gimmick of the hero who sold the book) The stories contained in this volume are not cut from that was the common mold of super hero stories as there ...


      • are no super villains to be found here.

        Instead, what you get are a number of dramatic and gritty character driven storylines mostly dealing with street crime and international intrigue.

        That makes this a very unique and original series that was had and shoulders above the other titles coming out at the same time.

        Unfortunately,

        sales were not all that great and it was cancelled sometime in 1984.

        Of course, Moon Knight did come back in many other series so there is no reason to shed tears.

        Again, this collection is a fantastic collection and it definitely worth purchasing by fans of some of the classic days of comic books.
