    Deathstroke is as much a comic about intent as it is the act of violence. Pagulayan can distinguish someone as intense as Slade Wilson, from the base brutality of someone like the Red Lion, even in the talkier scenes. Either way, you're getting a fantastic comic for your money. This is one of those cases where the bi-weekly schedule is a boon. Typically, Priest comics have to work on the slow-burn, but this comes at rapid-fire, and with one of the more intelligent and relevant plots a superhero comic can hope to achieve right now. If you really like comics that can transcend being simple pop art, you're on the right track. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 9, 2016

    Christopher Priest is beginning to reward those who have been reading his story twice a month while adding a character who is awesome and scary as hell all wrapped up into one.  While the overall story is still a bit of a mystery, the pieces are coming together and I like what I see.  Larry Hama's art is all about the characters and that's good because so is the story.

    “Deathstroke” continues to shock me. I would have laughed at you a year ago if you told me that I'd enjoy this series this much but here we are. It's a testament to what a great creative team can do. Read Full Review

    The issue starts off a bit "What da fuck" but comes around. I'd honestly be more invested if I wasn't seeing Slade out here doing merc work in a Black war-torn nation, but that's my only real complaint. Read Full Review

    We're still left with more questions than answers, but thus far the ride proves worth the hurdles. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Nov 9, 2016

    In conclusion Deathstroke #6 is still a good issue, as it does show us what Priest has been trying to say since the first issue, the message that Deathstroke is a villain and is good at what he does, this is even emphasized more in this issue, in the conversation between Red Lion and the assassin. Even the complaints I’ve given is because of the fact that we have not yet seen the next issue, and it may fix my complaints. I would still say pick up this book and pick up the previous one as this is still one heck of a series. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke #6 was a great read and a decent follow up to the previous issue and I can't wait to see what happens next, after receivingthe revelation that comes near the end of the book. It seems that Sladeis still struggling with skeletons in the past still coming around in the present. I think that very same struggle is something we all can identify with to a degree.
