I’m utterly confused. Is this Earth 2? Is the Huntress Batman and Catwoman’s daughter again? If so, why’s she going after the mob in Italy? The mob vigilante Huntress was a post-Crisis thing, right?
Like most of Paul Levitz’s modern work, he never establishes why anyone should be reading Huntress. Levitz wrote some great pre-Crisis Huntress thirty years ago, but there’s no hook in this first issue. There’s also no brain fodder to keep up interest.
Instead Levitz establishes a modern, realistic setting (Arab Spring mentions) and a bunch of sexist guys. Maybe because Helena doesn’t have a last name yet, it’s hard to get much personality out of her, but come on….
This issue feels like it was written before the New 52 and slightly rejiggered. Marcus To and John Dell’s art isn’t bad; it’s slick and without personality, but not bad.
It’s boring, like the writing.
