    This issue is a lot slower paced than the first one but it's still really good. We learn a lot more about Deadshot's past and what really happened to his brother and father, which I purposefully left out of the review for you to find out about when you read it. Because you should read it. Read Full Review

    Steven Cummings art does seem to be at odds with the darker tone of the material, as it's a bright, colourful style that has real difficulty selling the darker moments of the issue. I mean there's a scene where Deadshot is putting a good scare into a pair of dirty cops, and the art seems to of the mind that the intensity of this exchange is best served by a series of mundane visuals, rather than panels that would match the intensity of his comments. The scene where Deadshot tortures the dirty landlord was also a bit cartoonish, which doesn't really help to sell the more unsettling moments of this encounter. There's also a moment where Deadshot pumps a man full of bullets, and the art really struggles to capture the intensity of this sequence. I will give the art credit for it's work on the final page though, as it's a lovely action moment that manages to deftly carry readers into the next chapter. Read Full Review
