    Talk about action! With decapitation, dismembered limbs and Deathstroke masterfully wielding the Godkiller sword against the Man of Steel, Deathstroke #9 is a "hack-n-slash" lovers dream. Read Full Review

    The action doesn't stop in this comic. Having a threat so big even Wonder Woman and Superman are out gunned is very interesting to see. Deathstroke being the anti hero, having to say the day after being the one responsible is great to read. The art and the writing make it not only easy to read but a pleasure. Read Full Review

    The God Killer story is coming to an end next month and unfortunately, this month;s issue is some major setup.  Sure, it's bloody good fun and we learn Lapetus' plan and see more of the God Killer sword's many capabilities.  Superman joins in on the fun and it looks like the final battle is going to be epic.  This issue may not be the best in the series, but I had fun reading it nonetheless.

    SPOILERS We’re at the second to last issue now of this story arc. It doesn’t seem to be ramping up for me at all. Ok, they add Superman, and Deathstroke fights him. That sounds very interesting right? Ok, well, I thought the fight was worth mentioning as interesting, but not much else. Just an observation, and nitpick: There are some panels showing Superman’s hands, like it’s in first person of him flying. They insert a panel like this a couple of times to show him approaching. Now either he is taking a long time to get somewhere OR, the events that take place between those panels happen very quickly. I originally thought he was just taking a really long time. Not a biggie, just a random thought since I had nothing else to add. By the end we see Lapetus, this Titan God, Deathstroke was hired to kill blast out of the ground out of knowhere with this spear-like weapon, and I get this impression like I missed something. Or will there be a reveal as to what this spear is all about? Cause, he came out of the ground like it’s supposed to be some kind of surprise, or something, with this spear, but I had no idea what it’s deal was. It wasn’t mentioned previously, which might be ok, as a set up for a surprise or something, but I guess the execution just fell flat on me. A wide shot of Deathstroke taking on Superman! A wide shot of Deathstroke taking on Superman! I’m not very excited for the last issue of this story arc. I’m ready for the next one. Though considering it’s the last issue of this arc, maybe that’s where all the meat is? I did read somewhere about something gross that happens in that next issue?! 2.5 STARS, 5 out of 10 ====
