And now to contrast Barbara Gordon's fight with Gretel, how about 4 pages of Helena Wayne's own personal brand of justice against the Chairman of Kufra himself?

Aside from some cliche dialogue and some blantant misogyny, this was actually a pretty good issue. In fact it was shit tonnes better than the last three issues, which makes me wonder why this mini didn't pick up pace sooner.

As for Helena Wayne's characterisation in this issue...let's just say this issue will either make or break the deal for any pre-existing Huntress fans. I don't think I need to clarify my position on this comm since this is *me* we're talking about, but I will say that this definitely has me excited for the series' conclusion next month, and even moreso with Power Girl making an appearance.

Looks like this issue will be tonnes better than the last, and Helena sheds more light on her upbringing.

I’m led to believe now, Earth-2 Batman was just like his original Golden Age version, who used to kill people. I also think she’s being more Selina-like in her approach to fighting crime. Maybe Earth-2 Selina was the post-Crisis Selina? I’m starting to increasingly believe this is *very* likely.

This one picks up right where the last issue left off...it was an okay read...the easter eggs did make me smile! :D

And yes, I did say *easter eggs.* You'll see! ;)

4 pages worth of *SPOILERS!* 8D )

So do you remember Helena's team-up with Catwoman in the post-Crisis continuity, where Selina basically left the security dogs to chase after Helena so she could focus on bypassing a complex security system? Well, I think Helena finally found a solution to that problem in Huntress #3!

And damn, there were so many good scenes in this issue, 4 pages doesn't even begin to do it justice. On the bright side though, I think Levitz finally dropped our first "official hint" on Helena in this issue. I promise it's a very *subtle* one. I think. Maybe.

Anyway, moving on...

4 pages of SQUEE! for your viewing pleasure! 8D )

I can't tell you how badly I wanted this to be a busy day at work just to make the hours go faster, but nevertheless I managed to get home with this little jewel in hand. ^_^

Sadly it was a bloody long wait for issue #2 and it didn't turn out quite as exciting as I thought it would be--especially after the last issue--but given the slow pace, it still had it's moments.

Like Helena liking her Italian cookies with her cases! )

Not sure how this works if you've already posted two pages from the preview, so just to be on the safe side, I'll just post two pages from the Huntress book that wreaked of all shades of awesome. ♥

At least we have one heroine in the DCU waging a personal war against the sexploitation of women )

Newsarama released the first four pages of Huntress #1 by Paul Levitz, and so far it looks like this will be the only book in DCnU I'll actually be picking up besides Birds of Prey and Earth-2 JSA.

(Though should this really surprise anyone on here at this point? XP)
