    God help and forgive me, but Slade Wilson has a really good book! Read Full Review

    This book has been outdoing itself slowly and surely since its debut. Priest is at his best in showing how meticulous Slade can be with his disguises, planning, and patience. We are seeing way more of the mechanics that make him so feared in the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 12, 2016

    Deathstroke continues to prosper thanks to issue #4's measured pace and storytelling. This issue sets things up well, captures a moment between father and daughter, and even tells the story in a new way for comics. It's slow though and the cover certainly is misleading! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Oct 12, 2016

    A gripping piece of serialized fiction, Deathstroke works well on its own terms without needing to bring in big guns like Batman. True to form, though, his inclusion feels like an organic extension of the story Priest is wanting to tell, never overshadowing the bigger picture. With sharp dialogue, fantastic illustrations, and a gripping story, this is one of the biggest surprises I've read this year. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Oct 12, 2016

    Deathstroke #4 is a great read! It starts off pretty slow because of the “road trip” vibe, but because of the world of Slade Wilson we soon get nothing but action throughout! I'm particularly enjoying the connection that's starting to form between Wilson and his daughter especially. If you've been reading the previous issues, the relationship between Rose and Slade is slowly evolving and I enjoy that. When we look into Wilson's history and see his immense losses, especially with his own sons you can see why he hesitates to be close with Rose. Priest does a great job of explaining all of it perfectly and I have to admit that although he's a cold-hearted murderer, Deathstroke has some good fatherly moments about him too! If you've even been a fan of Deathstroke, or even remotely curious about his backstory then I definitely suggest you read this issue! Read Full Review

    I keep liking this book more and more.  While Batman's appearance feels a bit forced, it's fun and promises even more fun in the near future.  The characters, story and art are top notch and I can start recommending this series to everyone. Read Full Review

    Joe Bennet's work here is great. He is used to drawing urban action scenes. But here, he does the kinetic and step by step storytelling well. Read Full Review
