    On the whole, this was another fun read from DCs Kirby homage series. While overshadowed by the likes of the Sandman and New Gods one-shots, Manhunter still provides a compelling read that honors one of comics greatest legends. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    I'm very surprised by Manhunter. Despite the drawbacks mentioned in this review, I still found myself intrigued. Usually I'll feel nothing for the star, or worse, I'll loathe the main character, but I actually like Kate Spencer AKA Manhunter and wish her a long and fruitful hunt. Read Full Review

    Im curious enough about the main character to wonder what motivates her. What dark secret from her past sets her so against the super-criminal element? Theres not even a hint of an answer yet, but there should be if the series is going to build momentum and interest. The old way to do a series of this type was to have volumes of interior monologue as the main character works her way through her problems. This issue is fully second-person, and barely omniscient narrator at all. Still, at least this is not an example of decompression, in that we spend half the book watching the hero decide to take an inconsequential action. This Manhunter acts quickly and decisively, as if coming to a decision long in the making. Read Full Review
