    Overall I thought Deathstroke #41 was a good read. There was plenty of action, and the dialogue between Wintergreen and Gordon was great and enjoyable. Through Gordon and Wintergreen's conversation you really saw the different philosophies of Deathstroke and Batman. Wintergreen even mentions the fact that Batman is just Deathstroke with a moral code– but Gordon knows just how important that moral code is. The ending of the book leaves you anticipating the next issue as a new player enters looking for Deathstroke–Damian Wayne! Read Full Review

    Deathstroke #41 is the prequel issue to "The Terminus Agenda", but don't let that fool you " while the crossover with the awful Teen Titans will be kneecapping this book for the next few months, it doesn't really affect this issue. Instead, this is another great issue of Slade's solo book with a lot of fallout from the recent Arkham storyarc. Read Full Review

    Eventually Gordon lets Wintergreen go. This leads into a good ending which is a perfect lead in to the next storyline.Priest is at the top of his game. I mean he's really at the prime of his run here at this point in this title. Every issue is fresh and works even better then the last. The art is pretty great too. I'm really excited with what Priest and each artist have been coming up with on this book, month in and month out. It's a damn fine comic. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Mar 8, 2019

    Deathstroke #41is a character-driven, cerebral read. Although the issue isn't nearlyas high concept as the recently concluded “Arkham” arc, there is a lot to unpack. Priest depicts a complicated villain– one who at times seems to question the validity of his profession. Meanwhile, Pasarin delivers delightfully intricate pencils that capture the reader's imagination. Overall,Deathstrokecontinues to deliver brilliance issue by issue. Verdict: bring on the “Terminus Agenda”. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Mar 6, 2019

    All in all, this was a sleepy (but somehow, still action-packed) issue, but it managed to do a capable job of setting up Wilsons new status quo while teeing up the big Deathstroke/Teen Titans crossover coming up. If youre a fan of either book or love the idea of seeing Damian and Wilson squaring off again, it should be worth sticking around to see what happens. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 6, 2019

    While I continue to love the art in this series, the focus seems to be all over the place and this prologue to the Terminus Agenda just seems to be here to remind everyone what's been going on in the world of Deathstroke........ and sadly, it doesn't do it very well.  This issue just reiterates the same things we've seen previously, while giving us small references of things to come.   Read Full Review
