It's all-out war between Rose and Jericho in the wake of Deathstroke's murder. Rose is hell-bent on punishing the one responsible for Slade's death, while Jericho will stop at nothing to prevent further bloodshed, even if it means using Lex Luthor's gift-an immense power upgrade-to bend his sister's will. As Jericho takes a dark turn...will the ends justify the means? Or is Jericho's path to villainy only just beginning?

    Priest has Jericho make decisions that basically turn him into a major league villain. He takes the fight to Rose and the confrontation between the two is the crux of the issue. I loved how it was handled. And the end is perfect and leaves us on a nice cliffhanger. This is a great issue in an awesome book. It's only getting better each month! Read Full Review

    Jericho's upgrade in Deathstroke #46 is one of the most impressive so far in "Year of the Villain", and it's not long before we see how it corrupts him. Read Full Review

    If you ever wondered what superpowers Deathstroke possess or what his greatest attribute is, you learn about it in this issue. Deathstroke's children suffer as they struggle to make sense, assign blame, and hold accountable the one guilty for his death. I highly recommend this story for fans of Deathstroke and the Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    A strong family story brings readers to emotional levels not seen before in this book. I was worried about how Priest would keep the audience gripped following the death of Slade. I'm pleased to say he is doing a great job by playing into the strengths of the other characters and bringing back some fan favourites to for the added element of excitement. Read Full Review

    I grew up reading Teen Titans, so I am always keen on keeping up with Deathstroke. Dead or alive, a story about Slade Wilson is a story worth reading. Read Full Review

    And it looks like Rose got some new Deathstroke gear. That's, of course, assuming that's her on the last page of Deathstroke #46. The dual swords look sick. The whole outfit does. Hopefully we get more from her in next issue. Though it seems likely Deathstroke #47 will still be Jericho-heavy, given what we saw him do to Rose and his lover, Terrence. (No to mention what we saw on Ed Benes, Richard Friend and Dinei Ribeiro's cover.) Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 7, 2019

    While the art continues to be a joy in this series, the story kind of feels like it's treading water with everything besides Jericho and even his parts don't come fully together in my mind.  A lot of recap, explaining inconsistencies away real quick and jargon that's thrown out there instead of an actual explanation, left me wanting more from this issue.  With that though, I do look forward to see what happens with Jericho going forward.

    Deathstroke is weaving the genes of two parents stories together, with one proving to be far stronger than the other. Read Full Review
