In part 3 of "Between Dark and Dawn," Huntress's mission to the backwoods compound of a sinister Oregon cult goes seriously wrong. And in Gotham, Barbara's being stalked by something cyber-deadly, but how can she fight what she can't see?

    First off I have to say it's nice to get a Mark Texiera cover, as frankly he had dropped off my radar, and I'm delighted to see his work again. As for the interior art Ron Adrian looks to have done a pretty close study of the work of the regular artist, as not only is his art a pretty close match, but he also looks to have adopted the panels that serve no other purpose beyond giving readers an eyeful of the characters assets. Still there are some nice action shots, as there's a wonderful intense moment where Vixen tries to run herself through with a knife, and Savant's attack on the drug den held up quite nicely, with the final panel doing a very effective job of capturing the idea that the character is still a villain.

    That ending seems rather oddball, but I guess it relates somehow to last issues ghost in the machine Huntress cover by an inspired Land. I much prefer this issues wonderful emblem of friendship and support by Texiera. If that guy ever painted a decent story I might actually enjoy it, though I usually avoid painted art like the plague.
