All-Star Comics - The Huntress!
One of the most fantastic things which developed from the expanded adventures of the Justice Society of America in the Bronze Age was the introduction of some fascinating legacy heroes. One of the most vivid was The Huntress, in reality Helena Wayne the daughter of Bruce Wayne, the Golden Age Batman. Raised in the Wayne household by her father and mother the Catwoman, she grew to become a lawyer by day and like her father a crimefighter by night.
Sadly her career was a brief one, though following her origin in DC Super-Stars #17 she did find some fame as a stalwart back up feature first in the dollar comic Batman Family and for several years in Wonder Woman. This Huntress met her end during the Crisis on Infinite Earths where she died off stage under the rubble of a fallen wall. She deserved better.
The Huntress adventures were gathered together in this handsome trade some years ago. Not all of it is there, but all the earliest stuff is included.
