Helena Bertinelli takes a trip to Naples, Italy, but she's not there on holiday. As her alter ego, the Huntress, she's uncovered a human trafficking and gun-smuggling ring that only scratches the surface of Mafioso activity!

    Paul Levitz has been writing comics for a long time, and he created the first version of Huntress way back when. He writes her fantastically here, and shows you can write a good story without resorting to the stunts that seem to be almost requirements for the DCNU. I wish more of the writers would follow his example. Read Full Review

    This book, two issues in, still makes me wish it was being turned into an ongoing series. Between the great characterization of Helena by Levitz and the breathtaking art by Marcus To, this is definitely a great example of how to write DC women right. It's action packed, beautiful, and it deals with a very tough issue. I'm enjoying every moment of this fun read, and definitely recommend it. If you're looking for a fast miniseries you can easily dive into, this is a good one to try. Read Full Review

    Huntress #2 is another decent win for female-led books in the New 52. If the coming issues can get the plot back on track and retain the same great characterization, this series could be a nice counterpoint to all of the critics pointing out the missteps with DC's other female characters.

    We're a third of the way through the "Huntress" mini-series and I feel like Levitz and To are giving us our money's worth. The story's progressing nicely, Huntress has some good leads on Moretti's organization, we get some entertaining action sequences, and best of all, this is a story driven by the main characters actually being intelligent. (Shocking yet true.) This is an enjoyable enough mini-series so far that, were it to shift over to a monthly series, I'd plan on sticking around. It's good stuff. Read Full Review
