    It's good to have you back, Deathstroke. So far Jordan seems to have a firm grasp on the character (and I'd hope so since he's also writing TEAM 7) and I'm really pumped to see what he has in store for DC's deadliest mercenary. I'm loving the hit on Koschei and I'm especially curious to see what conclusion Slade's reached. This title's violent and smart and that's exactly how a Deathstroke title should be. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke #15 is an enjoyable upswing in quality from what we're used to; Jordan's aesthetics are a perfect fit for the character, so here's hoping he sticks around for a while. Read Full Review

    I can't say I enjoyed this issue. Despite some funny lines on Slade's part and a decent set-up for a new villain, I can't help but feel more than just dj vu" I know this concept. Jordan isn't giving us anything new and I can't see this story arc heading anywhere groundbreaking. Even then, the eh artwork isn't helping matters. Read Full Review

    The New DC has not been in any way shy about cancelling books that aren't quite gelling or selling, which makes me wonder about the continued publication of this title. This issue IS better than the #0 from a couple of months ago, but given that issue's gleeful recycling of 30 year old material traced from George Perez, that's only saying a little bit. All in all, though, it's not a train-wreck, as Koschei has some interesting aspects to his character, the Macguffin is at least believable, and Deathstroke, while pretty two-dimensional, is at least tolerable in this issue. Deathstroke #15 doesn't really hold up to heavy scrutiny, nor will it be held up as an example of shining storytelling circa the end of 2012 in the future, but it's better than I expected, earning a slightly-below-average 2 out of 5 stars overall. Given a compelling enough story, this creative team could probably deliver some good stuff, even with Deathstroke as the protagonist... Read Full Review
