    Newsarama - Robert Reed Apr 10, 2017

    Deathstroke #16 continues to build on the series' excellence. The brutal artwork is bolstered by a script that isn't afraid to let the readers have a laugh and Priest continues to nail tonal shifts in a way that seems effortless. The book serves as a nice antidote to the melodrama that courses through so many comics, and it's nice to see humor that doesn't rely on biting one-liners. With two issues left in the arc, one can only hope that Priest and company can keep the quality as high as it is here. Read Full Review

    All in all, I really enjoyed this issue. It's mostly a set-up story wise, but it carried some of the most important character development to date. With only two issues left, “Twilight” is coming along as one of my favourite arcs not only of this series, but of the entire Rebirth line-up. Read Full Review

    There's a lot coming down the pipeline for this series in the next issue. It's hard to doubt this series as it's stuck the landing on several storylines already and continues to be the most consistent DC title the publisher is currently releasing. To put it plainly, Deathstroke is not to be missed, but also, not to be fucked with either. Read Full Review

    This issue is mainly setup, but with the crazy stuff going on here, I'm just happy to be along for the ride.  Christopher Priest continues giving readers the best version of Tayna Spears/Power Girl ever and I might just hope Deathstroke remains blind (and Twilight) forever.  Good story and Good art make this issue very easy to recommend for those already reading this book.

    Larry Hama and Carlo Pagulayan continue to bring a great deal of energy into the comic, as well as Roberto Viacava in this issue. The comic would lose a lot of the fun, as well as the action, without an anchoring sense of artistic continuity, and thats what the creative team continues to bring here. While the story is a fairly simple one: Deathstroke pretending to be a blind superhero, complete with seeing-eye dog vs. a competing assassin army while protecting Power Girl, the time and narrative jumping keep it from being static. And as silly as the premise of Deathstroke essentially pretending to be Daredevil could sound, it injects a deal of fun into a comic thats like an FX drama. If youre looking to jump on with this comic, nows as good a time as youre going to get. Read Full Review

    Overall Deathstroke #16 was a good read. Slade really shows us how adaptive he is in this book as well. It's amazing how when faced with all of the obstacles in front of him Slade still finds away to overcome! I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review
