Manhunter, Vol. 1: Street Justice by Marc Andreyko is the first arc in the most recent Manhunter series by DC Comics. We are introduced to Kate Spencer a prosecutor in L.A. as she loses a murder trial of a serial killer named Copperhead. Unhappy with the verdict she takes justice into her own hands and does what the jury failed to do. As the story progresses we learn more about Kate's failed marriage and weak mothering skills. The book had great writing and art, it doesn't have a lot of background so even if you haven't read a comic before you can pick this one up and not be lost at all. This book is great if you like crime stories. Also the if you are a fan of realistic portrayal of female characters pick this up because Kate Spencer/ Manhunter is strong, independent but still has flaws that make her relatable.
