    Great looking art, and I'm surprised at just how much Huntress stories Tamaki is going to be written in the next few months. I do wonder whythey keep going back and forth on her skin color..

    Batman Secret Files: Huntress #1

    On Tuesday July 27, Detective Comics and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki teams up with acclaimed Stray Bullets writer/artist David Lapham for a new tale featuring Gotham City’s Violet Vengeance! Huntress has been through a LOT lately...including her brain being invaded by a violent parasite bent on sending her on a deadly slugfest. If that wasn’t enough, now she has to deal with enhanced abilities too, thanks to a villain by the name of Vile. This parasite has given her the ability to see through the eyes of his victims and this is not her idea of a good time! Huntress isn’t one to be played with, and she’s on the hunt for Vile, with a crossbow bolt with his name on it!

    Also weighing in at 40 pages, this one-shot features a main cover by Irvin Rodriguez (Future State: Robin Eternal), with a card stock variant by Riccardo Federici.

    Personally, I hope it's just temporary, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    She will get the same arcs as the Punisher. First black skin then metahuman then Franken-Helena then she'll play nanny to Baby Darkseid

    With the Birds of Prey TV show having turned into a bit of a cult following, it seems that they are going for a bit if that vibe.
    It's an interesting power set, not something I can recall anyone else having. Tamaki hasn't impressed me much over all, but her Dark Detective was good.
    The one thing I just don't like is that costume. There were so many other options they could have gone after rather than a midriff shirt.

    Just read 'tec 1035.
    Well, just a set-up issue... anyway is good to have back Helena as main character of some stories.
    I'm not a fan of the midriff shirt too.

    Detective continues to feel very Rucka-era to me which is a fine thing. I think my opinion on it will likely be highly resultant on the length of the episodes, so to speak - like if this first bit, the Worth bit murder mystery with the ins and outs of Bruce's peers and mayoral stuff and what-not, rocks out at like four issues (fine length for an initial inciting murder mystery) and then moves into the next interesting thing ... while keeping the running tab on the season long arc situation ... I think the pacing will feel very good and the world-building and character interactions will feel excellent.

    But anyway specifically Huntress, I liked the inclusion or sort of low-key reintroduction here. I also think the midriff is a little silly. Obviously less silly than what it's homaging. And her mask effectively serves no function other than coolness frankly. But it was a fine intro back-up with nice art and a compelling beat. I'm excited to follow up on it and it's always good to have an ongoing Huntress storyline that I'm excited to follow up on.
