    The starkest, and subtlest reminder of how long the issues explored here have been not only relevant, but urgently so. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 25, 2017

    If you read my "Best of 2016" list Deathstroke was on it. This issue further assures me that I made a good pick and that there's a strong potential that the series will end up on this year's list. The best part is that you don't need to have read any other issues of Deathstroke to pick up this issue. You can jump on here and join the conversation. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Jan 25, 2017

    Deathstroke #11 is a great read and I hope DC continues to put out more titles that talk about and tackle issues like this book did. It wasn't too political and it still kept me plenty entertained while at the same time forcing me to think. I hope Priest and other writers at DC continue to put out good, informative stories like this one in the future. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Jan 28, 2017

    It was incredible to see Priest tackling this issue with no sugar coating. Everything he wanted to say was put on full display, and despite the seemingly obvious stance that he presents readers with, it is handled in an extremely mature and thoughtful way. The art in this issue is provided by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz and stands out as some of the most raw and heart-felt art I've ever seen in a comic book. The pencil work and colors used really brought the text to life, which made for an all-round incredible read. Priest and the team really brought it together this issue. This unflinching look at such a divisive and important issue was an eye-opener for someone like me who hasn't experienced it first-hand, so I can only imagine the impact it might have on someone who knows more about the issue than I. All I can say in summary is to read this book, because it might be one of the most important comics you will ever pick up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Feb 7, 2017

    Dennys Cowan is back! And hes inked by Bill Sienkiewicz. Hum, what can I say about this? With Priest, this is one of the strongest line up of classic comics greats working together. Ive complained about guest artists not fitting the current series look. Because this was a one shot with the Creeper, which mind you fit the rest of the series continuity, I can only say that I was impressed with this comic. Its the best one so far. Why is Deathstroke so hit and miss? Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 25, 2017

    Deathstroke #11 is an intelligent, tightly plotted, and well-researched piece of vigilante fiction from Priest, Denys Cowan or the comic book equivalent of the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls starting lineup It's worth picking up even if you don't know your Deathstrokes from your Deadshots (Or Deadpools.) and rewards rereading.

    Cowan and Sienkiewicz have strong, unique styles that really makes their work stand out. They make a terrific team in this mystery where nothing is what it seems. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Jan 25, 2017

    In summary another solid edition, especially for a one-shot. I do wonder what people will really think about this, as it does deal with some really heavy issues, especially in the times that we are living in. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Jan 27, 2017

    Still, minor quibbles aside, this is a solid issue – and with the final sequence revealing that there's some sort of Deathstroke copycat vigilante out there, it looks like the next arc should be an interesting one. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye Jan 27, 2017

    It's a slick story in a slick series, and it's an absolute treat having Priest consistently deliver such nuanced narratives, not to mention the crazy-good comic veterans he often manages to corral. This is arguably one of DC's best books, and this issue demands that the reader takes a cold hard look at society and think. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 25, 2017

    This is one of those cases where I appreciate the message, but don't like the package it came in.  Christopher Priest rails against violence and while that may seem funny in a Deathstroke book, it almost works.  The heavy handedness and the lack of any characterization left it all a bit flat and in the end, I didn't this issue.
