HUNTRESS #5
Written by PAUL LEVITZ
Art by MARCUS TO and JOHN DELL
Cover by GUILLEM MARCH
On sale FEBRUARY 8 • 32 pg, FC, 5 of 6, $2.99 US • RATED T
The Huntress has cut her way through the mafia to find the bigger fish – an asylum-seeking dictator! The stakes in this deadly game just went up – but does she have enough weapons in her arsenal to assault an ancient monastery that’s guarded by the Italian military?

Oh shit. Huntress got in really deep with the sharks by issue five. I suppose that answers the question of who puts the bounty on her head.

You’ve never felt better. You’re eating right, sleeping soundly, kicking butt at work. But there’s one tiny problem. You’re being hunted through the streets of Gotham City by five women who seem dead-set on sticking you with syringes and even chopping your head off with a sword. But listen, buddy – you don’t understand. These women? The so-called Birds of Prey? They’re the only things standing between you and instant death, triggered by some creepy guy who’s been secretly controlling your mind for a year now…

Babs returns for #6. ♥

As I wrote on my blog http://kennowen.blogspot.com/2011/11/what-about-bette.html the Batwoman solicit has a glaring omission.
Love the Batgirl cover, though the Nightwing is my least favorite of this run so far.

There's a touch of Caselli in Huntress's expression

It's gonna be hilarious when Bane dies from blood poisoning or an air embolism or something. I mean, the man is basically going into battle with half a dozen giant IV tubes jacked into his bloodstream. Batman should just fling crap at him, run away and wait for the sepsis to set in.

I am really not feeling that Nightwing cover, both on coloring and general design. I wish that one had a variant I could try for. I just don't even want to have to look at it sitting on my desk.

The anatomy in that Catwoman cover is atrocious. Bruce is pretty bad, but poor Selina, what's happened to your body?

Also, on the Batgirl solicit"

"[Batman] has a few choice words to say about her return to crime fighting!"

Of course he does.

Oh no, that dude in the hat is going to shoot the area a foot above Dick Grayson's head. Someone stop him.

Did... did Batwoman get psychic powers? She seems to be doing the standard 'time for psychic powers' pose, as perfected by Charles Xavier and Jean Grey.

All I can see with the first cover is "Huntreeeeeeesss... PAWNCH!"

Huntress looks powerful there! She looks like she's some big-hitter about to activate some superpower or something. Just in her manner!

Ivy's costume still looks dumb, but at least they're trying some tendril stuff to save it, I guess...? I dunno, still one of the worst redesigns for me.

The BoP solicit is interesting, especially the way it's being told :)
