A few thoughts:
— The Huntress was created by writer Levitz, penciller Staton and inker Layton, and her first appearance was kind of a twofer: DC Super Stars #17 featured her origin/first solo story and All-Star Comics #69 introduced her to the Justice Society. Both issues came out about the same time, according to the Grand Comics Database.
— Since this is a Facsimile Edition, you also get the other stories: an O’Neil/Grell Green Arrow origin story and the Legion’s first case, by Harris and Ortiz. There are some cool features too, including Huntress concept art and — wait for it — a Wonder Woman Twinkies ad!
— Price comparison time: A high-grade, unslabbed copy of an original DC Super-Stars #17 recently sold on eBay for a little over $150. The Facsimile Edition will run you five bucks. That’s a deal.
