    This comic continues to be a master class with regard to how to set a pressure cooker story, and then to watch it boil over, this'll go down as one of the prime comic runs of its time. While it'll be sad to see this book drop down to monthly (words I never thought I'd say with regard to bi-weekly comics), at least it'll go out with a bang here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 3, 2017

    For my money, I'm hard-pressed to name a better comic being published right now. The simple fact that it's pumping out two issues a month and maintaining this level of quality is mind blowing. It's so good that I forget other comics that I've read and I weep for anything else released the same week. Deathstroke will likely be remembered as one of Priest and company's crowning achievements and rightfully so. Read Full Review

    It's still really good, but it falls just short of being great. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown May 3, 2017

    Overall I thought that Priest told a great emotion-driven story in this issue. Everything that Slade has done has come home to roost and in the end he had to know it would at some point. In some ways I feel sympathy for Slade, but then I'm reminded that a lot of the pain he has is caused by his own actions as well. Everyone he gets close to ends up becoming bitter and hateful toward him. The more I read this series the more I want redemption for Deathstroke at some point. He's too good of a character to stay completely a villain. Read Full Review

    While I was expecting more answers as we head into the Lazarus Contract crossover, we do tie up a ton of loose ends that readers of the whole run will love.  I can't wait for the big mystery to be solved, but I also can't wait for the crossover and am glad we are getting both soon.  This is a series that may take a little more work than most, but it is so worth it in the end.

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason May 6, 2017

    This storytelling method really appeals to me. I havent followed the whole arc, full disclosure, but didnt feel completely lost as the main players were clear, and while there were gaps in plot those were my gaps and not the fault of the creators. This issue seemed to tie up story lines that began in issue one and set up for the following story arc in an exciting and intriguing way. Read Full Review

    Despite the riddle of a layout Priest and Bennett present, I find myself really into this arc's run. With the continuation of this story being in Titans, you know that the Lazarus Contract is here, and there are a lot of players involved. Deathstroke's life is kind of falling apart right now, which is a great set up of all the possible ways he could react to upcoming events. Being blind, estranged from his kids, and losing Power Girl's friendship, there just might be some desperation in him, that could result in some impulse behavior. We will just have to wait and see.
