    Christopher Priest continues to write an ongoing story about a once mercenary turned hero leading a team of teenagers with the feel of a television show with spectacular writing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 4, 2017

    Deathstroke continues being one of the smartest books on the shelf today and Priest adds Wally West as a character he can totally kill with this week.  The art and story are so good and the only thing stopping this from getting higher marks is the slow paced nature of the overall narrative.  However, I can't really complain too much because I have been loving the ride.

    Multiversity Comics - Devon Browning Oct 9, 2017

    With art that compliments the group of characters as well as Priest's writing does, the biggest flaw that this series seems to have now is that it isn't released every week! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Scott Shuken Oct 5, 2017

    The more we care about the home lives of these heroes, the more the stakes will feel real to us when the dangerous super-heroing is going on. The issue forgoes a villain plot to focus on character development, creating a fun book that hearkens back to the title that Deathstroke premiered in: Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 10, 2017

    Deathstroke continues to be an intriguing and thought-provoking book. With an intentionally perplexing lead in Slade and a relatable pseudo-guest star in Kid Flash, #24 is another issue worthy of your time and money. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Diogenes Neves and Jason Paz continue to do a great job with whats largely a relationship-oriented issue rather than the narrative pyrotechnics of past issues. Which is a great time either way: after all a good dialogue scene is as reliant on skills in character acting as the best action scene is on choreography. Not to mention that every issue has Jeromy Cox's colors on tap, which has continued to be a boon to the visual sensibility of this comic. All of that being said: Deathstroke is continuing to accumulate Jenga pieces in its ongoing game of betrayal and complication, now is as good a time as any to jump on. Youre never likely to know what the next issues twist is going to be. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed Deathstroke #24 and I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue, because it seems that the Secret Society has come to pay Slade a visit! He declined their invitation to rejoin a few issues back"and apparently that's something that you don't do. Black Manta, Killer Frost, Vandal Savage, Reverse Flash and more. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how Deathstroke deals with his former team of villains! Read Full Review

    Not an awful story and it does move the arc along with good supporting art and a nice little ending to keep us wondering what will happen next. Read Full Review
