Marcus To

Huntress 6 (May 2012)

Dell might be back, but there’s a certain laziness to the art this issue. To doesn’t care about perspective during a chase scene–or body proportions–and apparently Dell doesn’t care enough to fix them. But the art is generally better, if not at the series’s peak. Unfortunately, Levitz’s writing doesn’t improve any this issue. Once again, […]

Huntress 5 (April 2012)

If this issue of Huntress is any indication, John Dell has behind most of the good art. Without him, Marcus To’s pencils–inked here by Richard Zajac–look cartoonish. It’s visually uninteresting. All the detail is gone. Given how little Levitz’s writing brings, it’s not like the series has anything to spare. Levitz doesn’t have any Catwoman […]

Huntress 4 (March 2012)

So Levitz ended the previous issue with an ominous cliffhanger, then this issue just has Helena kicking ass. She doesn’t even face a tough adversary. She just kicks butt over and butt. It’s almost like Levitz thinks he can get away with dumb female characterization for Helena by making her unstoppable. There’s another cat reference […]

Huntress 3 (February 2012)

Helena likes cats. Get it? Because she might be Catwoman’s daughter. Got to keep the reader guessing, because it adds texture to such a thoughtful series. Levitz also introduces the bad guys–evil Muslim oil barons who sell dissidents daughters into slavery. I was a little surprised there aren’t any good Muslims to offset the bad […]

Huntress 2 (January 2012)

So the comic is about Helena–still no last name, still no personality, I’ll bet Huntress was definitely either a pre-New 52 book or before they decided to do Earth 2–breaking up a human trafficking ring. And the cover tagline instructs the reader to objectify Huntress. DC is such a classy joint. The issue is more […]

Huntress 1 (December 2011)

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 […]
