    This is the stuff superhero comics should be made of. Priest makes even the most unrealistic aspects of superheroes feel grounded, which is particularly important for a character like Deathstroke. This issue properly sets up the big Superman showdown while delivering funny moments and interesting details on another hero. Read Full Review

    This is a pretty big issue of Deathstroke.  We find out who's behind all of his troubles and it's pretty cool and makes total sense.  The story and art are both above average, but for some reason, I fear I'm going to forget this issue like the rest. Read Full Review

    Finally, the issue sets up for the next issue, where Superman and Deathstroke are meant to fight. I’m really looking forward to that issue, although at the start of this issue, it heavily implies who wins. As much as I do praise Priest’s writing that element of time-skipping is something that here I wouldn’t want to be spoiled for me. However we will see, and I continue to enjoy where this title is continuing on. Read Full Review

    All around this was a pretty solid issue, however I am glad that this arc is coming to an end, as I feel the story will suffer if it continues for very much longer. That being said, I am also very interested to see what comes next for this series and whether it will retain the tone and structure that has been cemented across this arc. Read Full Review

    Man, you ever been reading a story where you got an idea of what's going on but you're not entirely sure yet you're enjoying what you're reading? Yeah. That's what has me about Priest's Deathstroke. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke #7 is a good read but better when you're reading the entire series as a whole. This is basically coming to a conclusion of what's been going on in the previous issues so by itself this issue doesn't give too much. As part of the whole Priest is giving us a great ride as seen by one of the deadliest men on the planet! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how Deathstroke holds his own against the Man of Steel! Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Nov 23, 2016

    There is one more issue left in the first arc of Deathstroke return after Rebirth. It is still a good possibility this first storyline will end with the a great bit of reading. For though now it just seems too clogged by all the emotions, overplayed elements, and daytime levels of betrayals. Read Full Review

    This series bounces around a lot and can be confusing at times, but this issue finally delivers some answers! Also brings in Superman and sets up good things for the next issue

    Comic Book Review (6/10) "Okay," Deathstroke #7 "The Professional Conclusion Part 1," Writer: Christopher Priest, Penciller: Carlo Pagulayan, Plot: Adeline, the mother of Grant and Joseph Wilson and the ex-wife of Slade Wilson, has an arrest warrant out on Deathstroke aka Slade Wilson from the US Attorney General for Superman to bring him in. Adeline wants revenge on Slade for letting Grant get killed and Joseph's throat slit and having an illegitimate child (Rose Wilson) with a Hmong operative. Can Deathstroke prepare himself for the Man of Steel? This story arc is starting to drag on a bit, and seems to be adding unnecessary characters to the mix. Even the inclusion of Batman and Robin seemed like wasted opportunities and their only purpose was so that Ravager aka Rose Wilson can learn that Deathstroke put out a hit on his own daughter. Everybody is double crossing each other, and trying to keep up is becoming a pain. What started off as a promising story arc had become a lull and a snag in the story telling and I am beginning to think about jumping ship on this book. I am hoping this "Conclusion Part 1" is the penultimate issue in this story arc and hoping that Priest will now proceed to tell his next story because this one is starting to lose its pertinence and starting to overstay its welcome. I am really surprised that Priest wasn't able to end this story arc in less than eight issues!
