    AiPT! - Connor Willesden Oct 31, 2017

    Deathstroke 25 tackles the question of what evil really is incredibly well. With stellar art and writing, it continues to be one of the best series being published in comics. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Nov 3, 2017

    Deathstroke #25 was hands down a classic issue in my opinion! I've never seen Slade take on some of the most powerful villains of the DCU and hold his own before! None of them, not even Reverse Flash or Ultra-Humanite could withstand Deathstroke! I was wondering when Slade's role of playing the good guy would have dangerous consequences and Priest did a great job of showing it! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Terrence Sage Nov 1, 2017

    Deathstroke #25 is an issue that takes a look about the roadmap of its main character and puts him under a microscope to focus in on the characters development throughout the run and brave ahead into the continuing the next set of adventures. Priest and company do just that and keep up the level of consistency seen in only a few books on the stands right now. Deathstroke is a title about retribution, heroism, what makes a person, and changing in a world that won't believe it at all. The anniversary issue has a few bumps in the road with the art, but they are few and far between and don't slow down the ride that is this thriller of a comic book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 1, 2017

    Anniversary or not, this is another great issue of Deathstroke.  The whole series has been about the grey area between hero and villain, but Priest turns it into a clever game that ends with cool and humorous results.  This is still one of the best Rebirth books and everyone should be reading it!

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 3, 2018

    Carlo Pagulanyan continues to draw the best and most dynamic Deathstroke since Mike Zeck. Yeah, since Mike Zeck. I wish more people would discover this series. Its one of the most intricate and pleasurable one on the market, regardless of how difficult it is to approach initially. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jericho Wilson Nov 3, 2017

    Any book where the creators produce a story with A-list villains debating if theyre evolved, evil, efficient, et cetera while the protagonist manages to be active in the plot despite chaining him up the whole time and it never gets boringwell, that is how you make a good story great and classic characters ever more captivating.

    Drop something else if you have to, but this is the comic we should all be talking about. Smart mainstream comics like this are far too short a supply. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - soshillinois Nov 3, 2017

    As far as jumping on points, this may well be one of the best ones this comic has had in awhile. Its a dense operatic story thats reaching its crescendo. Any given issue of Deathstroke is going to be a good one, but this one goes all-out. If youre looking for one of the closest things comics has to something that can reach towards The Wire or The Sopranos, youre in good hands here. Read Full Review
