    Joe Bennett brings a highly polished style to these pages that this book really hasn't had since Butch Guice's departure. This certainly helps to enhance one's enjoyment of the material. The opening page convincingly sells the idea that Ted Grant was a very formidable force in the ring. This opening sequence is nicely mirrored later in the issue when the character lashes out at his captors, as the panel where he stopped the throwing stars that were sent flying in his direction is the very definition of a cool action hero moment. The Black Canary also gets a pretty impressive showcase in this issue, as she has her fight down on the beach, and the back and forth nature of the battle is well reflected by the art. The art also does some nice work on the scene where the Huntress makes a move to grab a piece of a criminal enterprise, as the art gives the character a nice femme fatale like quality, as she makes her offer to the skeptical mob boss.
