Helena and Dinah, on the other hand, have their hands full, with a busload of bored teenagers. How to engage them? Well, just add in one magic-powered super-villain and simmer. Old legends die hard, and some harder than others when a mythic figure from Gotham’s history turns up alive and all to well. It’s up to Huntress and Black Canary to take him down. This Dinah is much different than the one I’m used to seeing the pages of Green Arrow. She’s seems less mature.
It’s my favorite kind of story with plenty of action, though the Batman sequence seemed to be drawn out a wee bit. I mean, really, the solution seemed so obvious. Why Batman didn’t come up with it himself is beyond me.
Marcio Takara’s artwork is more sketchy than I’m accustomed to seeing in comic books. Perhaps if it had been inked by someone else, its better qualities would have been muddied behind someone else’s vision, but he makes it work nicely.
