Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking is a comprehensive guide for the beginner and an invaluable reference book for the experienced. It describes equipment, basic and advanced techniques (including those for rolling and rescues), weather and navigation, and is illustrated throughout by the author's own drawings and by spectacular color photographs.
This new edition has been completely updated in line with the latest sea kayaking developments. The existing sections have been revised and new sections have been added, including choosing a kayak and paddles, a new deepwater rescue method, dealing with mudflats and quicksand, and how to compile your own local weather chart. A new chapter on racing makes a welcome addition to the book. Updated illustrations and additional historic photographs have been included, making this the essential resource for sea kayakers everywhere.

Moon Knight's first solo outing from the Hulk magazine Sept. 2 2010
By Brian Reaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This series of stories was my introduction to Moon Knight in the 70's and 80's as he took the final pages of "Hulk" magazine. I remembered the essence of these stories, but it was in the re-reading that I realized why they stuck with me. This was Moon Knight beginning to figure out the whole split personality thing, and it was a gritty story (especially the part involving the axe murderer) that you didn't see in the regular comics back then. Reprinted here in glorious color and including the original covers from the Hulk magazine each story appeared in, you are given a real treat.

Though this story is very tame compared with the violence seen in today's comics, it should be noted this is better suited for a 18+ audience. No nudity, but it gets a little bloody at times. Also, this entire storyline appears in the "Essential Moon Knight Volume 1" paperback, which is cheaper than this and has more stories before and after it (though it's in black & white rather than in color like this collection). Unless you're a completest or just like this period of Moon Knight's history, you could buy the Essential book and get everything here except the color.

Breathtaking remastered printing compared to the old comics! This is a must have for new readers and old collectors that want to "upgrade" their comics collection or read it all over again.

dated Jan. 9 2014
By JohnZalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm not much of a comic guy anymore so take this with a grain of salt. When I was a young teenager I loved Moon Knight, especially the ones illustrated by Bill Sienkiewicz. I bought this in a fit of nostalgia and was a bit let down. The stories seem outdated and immature, compared to the few comics I occasionally buy these days (mostly stuff with Mignola's writing and/or illustrations). I guess it shouldn't be surprising that books written in the 80s feel outdated, but this was a bit of a let down. Sienkiewicz' art was groundbreaking at the time, and is still pretty nice to look at, but for me Moon Knight has turned lackluster.
