    There's no slowing the action and suspense in the pages of DEATHSTROKE. James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham deliver another action-packed story that keeps readers on their toes. Deathstroke has to infiltrate LexCorp while searching for his daughter. Deathstroke may be good at what he does but he might be in a little over his head. You'll want to stand up and cheer at moments while cringing at some of the hits taken. This is an superhero action comic full of substance. Reading DEATHSTROKE is a blast. Thankfully it's not a blast coming from one of Deathstroke's weapons. Read Full Review

    This issue may not move the overall narrative forward much, but with the amount and quality of the action scenes, I hardly cared. Deathstroke infiltrating Lexcorp in search of his daughter felt like an action packed video game come to life and it was as cool as that sounds. James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham kick ass and then end it with an awesome cliffhanger that promises even more craziness next month. I can't wait. Read Full Review

    The Lex Luthor plot move was a nice surprise. I also liked the pace and intensity of this issue (there were virtually no breathers) which is a credit to Bonny's style. Equally impressive are the fight scene depictions and where Kirkham wields his meanest pencil. His use of unique angles and close-ups suck the reader right into the action. Read Full Review

    This is a comic about a man in a silly costume waving swords about and shooting people and robots and getting the shit kicked out of him by a woman in a pencil skirt. I know she's Lex Luther's bodyguard, but he's fucking Deathstroke, we've just seen him cleave his way through a small army, was he tired? Read Full Review

    There honestly isn't much to say about this issue. Like the last story with the Suicide Squad, this feel like it is being dragged out way too long with too much mindless action. Kirkham's art is fantastically detailed as always and makes the action a little more fun but this really isn't that engaging. It may have been more interesting if Slade had fought Mercy more instead of the robot. With that, we could have had some more dynamic martial arts but every fight is just a beat down with the losing side never having a chance. It's not terrible but I think it would better to wait for the trade. Read Full Review

    I love Deathstroke, and I loved Tony S. Daniel’s run on this book (though, I don’t know HOW much impact he had on the last arc, because he shared all his writing credits with James Bonny- so maybe he was just the co-plotter, or it was his original story idea that Bonny ran with) regardless of that, this is the first issue fully without Daniel’s writing or art, and I think it doesn’t dip in quality whatsoever. We get some good action, some cool splashy pages, and a big tease for what is to come next issue- which is the kind of slobberknocker fight that Deathstroke is literally MADE for. This was a solid issue, nothing revolutionary in the book, but good and engaging and it sets up a nice and I am sure action-packed next issue.
