Huntress #2

With a beautiful cover by Guillem March and Tomeu Morey, Huntress #2 takes us to the other side of the pond as the still surname-less Helena continues her one-woman war on italian crime.  Her detective work is definitely reminiscent of silver age Helena Wayne, while her agressive and violent ways match those of modern age Helena Bertinelli.  I am having fun with the fact that we -and probably DC- still don't know which version of Huntress this is, but it is also inconsequential to me, as this heroine is cool regardless of her last name.  Paul Levitz knows the character better than anyone else, and he proves it here by giving her that ruthless attitude against evildoers, and those caring and concerned ways towards the defenseless.  Marcus To, John Dell, and Andrew Dalhouse bring A-Class art to the story.
