    It seems like all I do is sing praises for Christopher Priest when I write these reviews. Every issue he and his team find a new way to excite and engage me and this series has proven to me time and time again that Priest is one of the best in the industry right now. The art from Bennett was tight and gorgeous, and the overarching story became increasingly clear. “Twilight” is shaping up to be a solid arc, and I am excited to see what comes next.

    Deathstroke #13 is an awesome read but I really missed seeing Rose in this issue. I know Priest can't include her in every book though so I completely understand. Overall the pacing is great, the action was flawless, and the pencils by Joe Bennett were amazing. His eye to detail of every scene was perfect and combined with the writing of Priest it makes for a good overall story. The ending is what really still gets me as it shows how low sometimes Deathstroke can be. When is a villain not ever a villain? Read Full Review

    Christopher Priest shows the reader how smart everyone in this book is with double and triple crosses flying around at all angles.  While I wish I could get a better grip at the overall story, Priest certainly keeps everyone on their toes and this issue is no exception.  I'm not sure if this is an action packed book with every one's favorite anti-hero or the most messed up family reunion ever...maybe it's both and even more!  The art and story are impressive and I am finally ready to punch my ticket on the Deathstroke trolley.

    Joe Bennett also deserves accolades for continuing to push out consistent home runs. Theres a variety of notes that need to be hit in any comic, and the range of storytelling: from fights, to emotional moments, and the beat panels of a Priest comic tend to require both exaggeration and nuance. And Bennetts pencils are given a remarkable amount of upgrade from Mark Morales pencils and Jeremy Coxs colors. It leads to an impressive overall comic that certainly deserves recognition, both as a product of the Rebirth line, and what can come from allowing a comic to explore the outer limits of what it can do without hobbling itself.

    This series is extremely entertaining and one that I rush to read upon its release. With a lot of great series I tend to think about and wonder when the other shoe will drop, and I'll be left disappointed, but not with Deathstroke, I'm just here for the ride and happy with anywhere it's taking me.

    More impressively, Priest manages to make Deathstroke #13 a satisfying read while still serving the larger "Twilight" storyline. It's a lost art, but that's why Priest is still one of the best writers in the industry. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Feb 22, 2017

    An action-heavy but clumsily paced book, Deathstroke #13 reveals a challenge facing the writers of this series: pacing. There's a lot of story to tell and three unique protagonists to follow through different stories. Though they sometimes nail the delicate balance required to spin so many plates at the same time, this issue kind of collapses under its own weight. They even made the effort to pare down the go-nowhere story following Ravager, but there was just too much to pay attention to in this one. With it looking as if Jericho and Slade's stories may now become one, hopefully things will improve. Read Full Review
