    James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham are quietly giving fans a thrill ride of a book with action and severed limbs to spare.  I know that Slade will eventually find Rose, but I don't care how long it takes because I am really enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    Wow! Just when it looked like things were winding down to a conclusion they turned on a dime and increased intensity. Now that's good writing. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke #15 is a solid issue, where the art grabs your attention a bit more than the story. But the story is solid. Just don't expect anything Berlanti-like. And I'll admit that is a bit unfair with regards to a single issue. Although we write these reviews as the monthly issues incrementally drop, the truth is that it is in the whole arc as a single cohesive tale that a writer's cred is most weighted. If you are looking to check in on Deathstroke and see if it is something interesting, issue #15 is a fine place. For fans of Wolverine, Lobo, Winter Soldier, Elektra, Black Widow, and similar solo, mercenary/assassin/spy redemption/revenge tales, you'll likely be interested in sticking around to see if this should become a permanent part of your pulls. For others who are not so genre -engendered, your mileage may vary. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, I find this issue to be dull. The art is great and I am intrigued by Rose's motivations; I want to know what is going on with her. However, like the last several issues, this story is too padded. It's more concerned with Deathstroke fighting than telling a story. Action is fine but it gets tiresome after awhile. I recommend skipping this issue. Read Full Review

    This was a really fun punchfight story, and it ends with a reveal of a newly created character (or at least, im about 99% sure it’s a new character) in LAWMAN! He looks kinda like skeletor or taskmaster, but he dresses in his best Jonah Hex cosplay. We don’t know what his power set is, or what he really wants, but he looks cool, and seems to have quite a lot of influence, so that means this should be a fun character to watch in this book. Couple that with the great visuals of Tyler Kirkham, and subtle humor and well-choreographed fighting of James Bonny, and you get a pretty solid book. I wish we could have actually gotten Lex Luthor in this issue, or maybe a bit less obvious “twist” ending for Deathstroke to defeat the Bizarros, but beyond that this book is solid, and this issue delivers. I also would have liked a bit more intel on who this Mercy woman is that works for Lexcorp, and how she is quite so cool under pressure being threatened by Deathstroke, and trying to not get killed by Bizarros, she seems like she is someone I should know. Is she? Do we know who she is in the DCU or is she just a tough-as-nails lady who works for Lex Luthor, and is totally cool with working on top of a bunch of crazed mutated clones of Superman? I don’t know, and I don’t think we will get any of those answers in this book, because Slade is moving on to try and find his daughter, and his eventual confrontation with LAWMAN (I think I have to always say his name as an exclamation, because it just feels right that way, you know???) his confrontation with LAWMAN will take him away from Lexcorp and towards some new obstacles like **SPOILERS** Red Hood?!?! Apparently Red Hood took time out from the big mess that is Batman & Robin Eternal to take on a job as a hitman coming after Deathstroke, which is odd, but it makes me happy to know that we wont get our head-to-head with Deathstroke and LAWMAN right away- we are going to have to wait, and get some time with Deathstroke and R
