Title: Wonder Woman #310
Story: Black Market
Characters: Huntress (Helena Wayne), Harry Sims, The Earthworm
Creators: Joey Cavalieri (writer), Tim Burgard (artist)
Publication Date: 07 December 1983

Summary: During a routine drug bust, the Huntress discovered to her horror a human trafficking ring that sells infant children to people in the black market. Determined to shutdown this deadly operation once and for all, the Huntress deduces that the baby she rescued was abducted near Avenue XX (a well known site for drug activity) after a medical examination revealed that the baby is deaf presumably due to her mother being a drug addict while pregnant. The Huntress goes hunting, but she isn't the only one. In another corner of Gotham, reporter Nedra Borrower is looking to seek her teeth into the Huntress by using her media presence to turn the public against her.  (Heh! Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?)

The Best of the Huntress: Wonder Woman #309 Review

Title: Wonder Woman #309
Story: Black Market
Characters: Huntress (Helena Wayne), The Earthworm
Creators: Joey Cavalieri (writer), Tim Burgard (artist)
Publication Date: 05 October 1983
Available In: Digital

Summary: It has not been 24 hours since Helena Wayne escaped from Arkham Asylum with her sanity still (largely) intact, and already she's come across her newest, deadliest case: the human trafficking of infant children in the black market. Just who exactly is running this sick trafficking ring and why? Why babies of all people? It was the kind of unexpected turn for the worst that sent chills down the Huntress' spine when she discovered the routine drug bust she thought she was making revealed a much more sinister operation. As the Huntress doubles down on her use of violence to get to the bottom if this new sick case, an equally sinister figure known as the Earthworm lurks in the shadows, looking to compensate for lost and damaged goods. Who is this mysterious Earthworm and how far deep into Gotham's underground must Helena Wayne dig to unearth the monster in question?

A Game Of Hearts: Who's Had A Better Shot At Love?

Hello! It's Valentine's Day! That time of year where card and candy companies make a profit from people buying something nice for the sweethearts they say "I love you" to on a daily basis. Either that, or it's that time of year where people bemoan the loss of a relationship, sometimes even the absence of one. Then there are those like me who don't care either way, but like a good excuse to enjoy a box of chocolates all the same. Alas, I'm not actually eating a box of chocolates today. I've got something better! A post on the love lives of our resident Bat Kids! And by "resident," I do mean Earth-2 of course!

Earth-2 Power Girl Set To Return in Deathstroke? Could This Give Us Insight Into The Futures Of The Justice Society And The Earth-2 Huntress? Spoiler's Ahead!

It has been a slow two years for Justice Society fans. With Rebirth about to come to a close, there has been very little in the way of actual stories surrounding the Justice Society's mysterious disappearance since the start of the New 52 universe. There have been hints and teases sprinkled throughout the Rebirth era, but DC has done little to communicate what Justice Society fans can expect from their return. Well, it looks like we may not have to keep waiting that much longer as one major JSAer made a surprising comeback in this week's Deathstroke Annual #1: the Earth-2 Power Girl!

Justice Society Vol. 2: How Do I Buy Helena Wayne's Earlier JSA Adventures Digitally?

In addition to Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter (aka the definitive Helena Wayne Huntress book), another book I always recommend fans to check out that is regrettably also out of print is Justice Society Vol. 2.

Now, Justice Society Vol. 2 does more than just collect the first three years of Helena Wayne's adventures with the Justice Society. It also collects "The Death of Batman" story arc from Adventure Comics #461-463, which was considered back in 1979 to be a major event. It was not a storyline that sent off a version of the famous caped crusader, but the Golden Age original. This final farewell to the Batman that started it all in 1939 helped set his daughter up to take up his legacy full time and continue building on DC's Golden Age mythos.

Story: Pressure

Creators: Joey Cavalieri (writer), Michael Hernandez (artist)

Summary: It has been a wild ride for the Huntress. From the moment she took on the cases of the Mechanic, Pat Pending, and the Undertaker, all of which led her to Arkham Asylum where she was shot with a potent cocktail of hallucinogens, Helena Wayne is more than happy to get back to her normal routine of being a lawyer by day and the Huntress by night. But are things really back to normal for the Huntress, or are things just getting started? As the downward spiral of Helena Wayne's life continues, she is met with a new set of friends and foes, one of which is the ambitious reporter, Nedra Borrower, who is out for the Huntress' blood!

I Can't Buy Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter In Print. How Do I Buy It Digitally?

Hello! Happy New Year! "happy" as it can it get under current circumstances that is. I completely understand if many are still feeling like Dr. Manhattan on Mars. I'm personally still on that boat myself. However! I do want to keep sharing my favourite Helena Wayne Huntress stories with all of you. One of the things that did make me happy last year was celebrating Helena's 40th anniversary and it was certainly fun examining the character's entire publication history.

2017 End of the Year Reflection, 2018 New Year's Resolution

Ooff. 2017. To say this year was exhausting is understatement. From the continuously disastrous Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom to the political crisis between Catalonia and Spain, not to mention the ever cataclysmic farce that is Donald Trump in the US, to say I wanted so badly to be living on another planet this year is also an understatement. It's enough to say I completely understand why Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan went to Mars to find peace of mind, and why Valkyrie from this year's Thor: Ragnarok lived at the bottom of a bottle.
