Even though she wasn't DC's first character to be named Huntress (the Golden Age Wildcat foe later named Paula Brooks preceded her), I always loved the later Helena Wayne version (first introduced in 1977).

Me, too. I once tried to hunt down (ha, made the pun by accident) all the Wonder Woman issues she was in, but then found out they'd done trade paperbacks.

I only ever saw the first TPB. How many were there?

You know, maybe there was just one. I think there were two of the JSA trades from the 1970s/80s All Star books, and I might be mixing them up.

I know there were two JSA trades, but I never bought them as I had all the revived All-Star issues already. I rarely bought a Wonder Woman back when Huntress was in it.

I used to have most of the All-Star books, but then had to sell them. I've had to sell a LOT of stuff. But, now I want both of those two volumes and the Huntress one.

I just want to know when they'll collect the rest of Huntress, and Infinity Inc: The Generations Saga volume two!

Wouldn't hold my breath waiting for more Infinity Inc. collected editions, since I thought when they originally cancelled any solicitations for "Infinity Inc: The Generations Saga vol. 2" it was said to be because there weren't enough initial orders to justify printing it.
Plus, I don't know if DC wants to do much that might benefit Roy Thomas these days . . .

I'd bet sales just weren't good enough. Maybe they'll collect them in digital at some point, but even that's iffy.

Absolutely true. They're not so good at remembering that kind of thing it seems.

Operative word being "did".

But how much of Roy's past contributions are still a part of what DC is currently publishing these days, and how much does DC seem to take a "What have you done for me lately?" approach?

Hey! Guess what?

DC is re-issuing a "facsimile edition" of DC Super-Stars #17!
Huntress (Helena Wayne version) __dc_s10
DC SUPER STARS #17 FACSIMILE EDITION #1
This 1977 issue features the debut of Huntress, the untold origin of Green Arrow, and an early adventure of the Legion of Super-Heroes! Offered to coincide with the Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1.
U.S. Cover Price = $4.99
On Sale Date:  May 5, 2020
https://www.dccomics.com/comics/dc-super-stars-facsimile-edition-2020/dc-super-stars-17-facsimile-edition-1

NOTE: I have no idea if they also reprint the original ads / promos in the facsimile version or not.
Also, even though it's supposedly "Offered to coincide with the Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1", I don't think that book has been scheduled for a new release date yet. (It was originally due out April 15th, while the DC Super-Stars #17 facsimile edition was originally scheduled for an April 8th release.)

Me too.
But, you know, this might be worth buying as well, depending on the quality of the printing (paper stock and coloring) . . .

I still don't understand why they've never released a collected edition with this and all of the Huntress strips from Wonder Woman.

Well, they had the collections of the Paul Levitz-written Huntress stories, but I don't think they bothered with the Joey Cavalieri-scripted ones (starting with Wonder Woman #296).

I noticed that yesterday too, sounds interesting, I hadn't noticed the original solicitation in February Previews.

Hopefully the LCS served from the new distributors should have received it, other ones and in the rest of the world will have to wait.....a month? Question

Anybody remember when Helena travelled from Earth-2 to Earth-1 and teamed up with Batgirl and Batwoman?

Also, Huntress began her back-up feature run in Wonder Woman starting with issue #271, forty years ago this year.
Huntress (Helena Wayne version) -_000_24
cover-dated September 1980, the GCD lists the on-sale date for that issue as June 11, 1980.

Huntress' first appearance at one of the annual JLA/JSA meetings (pre-CoIE) was in Justice League of America #159-160 from 1978.
