The Huntress #2: "Breaking Cover"
Download The Huntress v1 #2
Huntress v1 #2 is part two in a four-issue miniseries. This series contains not only a fascinating character with one of the most attractive costumes in all of comic bookdom, but also both great story and art, which seemed a rare combination to me during the mid-1990s. Michael Netzer's strikingly beautiful and highly stylized art gives The Huntress an almost film noir feel to the entire series, which lends itself well to this dark character.
The Huntress has much in common with Batman: as children, both lost their parents through senseless violence and both adopted costumed identities to become avengers of the night. The huntress, however, exhibits a violent ruthlessness that is a perennial irritant to the Dark Knight. This temperamental failing has prevented Batman from giving the Huntress his official sanction.
