    The ending of the issue is its only real pitfall, throwing a wrench in what was an enjoyable standalone tale within this altered timeline. Hopefully it's merely serving as a temporary shock cliffhanger, and issue #2 will move forward with the more engaging aspects of the story. Read Full Review

    While clearly lacking as much importance to the overall Flashpoint storyline, this tie-in works as a very enjoyable Elseworlds-type tale. And it's Deathstroke as a pirate"hard not to get some kicks out of that. Read Full Review

    I have to say, though, it gets a bit difficult to discern what marked similarities a direct tie-in to Flashpoint such as Deathstroke and an otherwise isolated supplement like the vastly superior Batman - Knight of Vengeance have in common. Right now it seems more of a hodgepodge than a comprehensive epic, and I think that statement pretty much sums up the entire Flashpoint event: all dressed up and nowhere to go. Read Full Review

    This part of the Flashpoint spinoff mini's lets Deathstroke and his quest to save his daughter lead things, but it also shows us a bit of what life on the seas is like and the dangers they face when they slide into the territorial waters of Atlantis. The crew that he has is amusing to watch as they have a good pirate feel with the addition of metahuman powers and seeing how they come together for the next mission to save Rose works well. But as interesting as it is, and it does flesh things out just a bit more about a world in which Aquaman reigns supreme, it doesn't feel as strongly connected to things until the end when it ties back into the main Flashpoint series. It has some good ideas in it and Deathstroke plays the part of an almost salty sea captain well, but it needs something extra to make it click better, which may come in the following issues. Still, any book that puts Clayface as a pirate earns some praise in my mind. Read Full Review
