    Deathstroke the Terminator joins forces with Black Canary and T.R.U.S.T. in a striking debut issue that mixed odd-couple relationship dynamics with surreal horror. An entertaining read with stunning art from cover to cover. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 29, 2021

    Deathstroke, Inc. #1 is a fun comic. It doesn't take itself seriously and just goes with the flow. There's no thinking here. It's big guns, cool toys, and lots of action packed in its pages. But, Williamson teases a little more with the characters' motivations. Whether the series continues its popcorn summer blockbuster path or can be more will be all about that and we'll have to wait and see. But, for a beginning, this is a crazy start that shows off everyone's talents. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 28, 2021

    Overall, the high octane action and amazing art by Porter mask the story beat and background that seems to be lacking in this opening installment. Nevertheless, there is certainly enough here to hang on for a couple more issues to see how the series unfolds. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 28, 2021

    Deathstroke Inc. gets off to a solid start. Its not shaking up too much with the title character, but this new premise should provide some interesting storylines. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 28, 2021

    It's a mess so far, but it's a highly entertaining mess and one that seems like it's going to make use of a lot of both characters' complex histories. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Sep 28, 2021

    Deathstroke Inc. #1 is a good first issue. It introduces our new team well and provides some fun action, weird imagery, and witty dialogue that I hope continue to be seen in the next few issues. But whether or not this series sinks or swims will definitely be determined by future issues. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Sep 29, 2021

    The result is a violent ride filled with gonzo energy and absurd encounters that delivers on all of Deathstroke's "cool factor," while still suggesting some layers of death beneath the many colorful explosions. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Benjamin Novoa Sep 28, 2021

    While Deathstroke Inc. may appear formulaic to a seasoned comic reader, part of its appeal is how it leans into expectations and provides a joyride from start to finish. Some of the pending "twists" seem evident, but I'm curious to see how it plays out, nonetheless. "Suburban Horror" ends with a preview of things to come, and if the snippets they provided are any indication, Deathstroke Inc. could work its way onto my pull list. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 28, 2021

    Deathstroke Inc. opens with a bang, and those looking for crazy action and villains may have more fun with this than I did. However, I expected something more significant from this first issue, and while I was a bit disappointed overall, I will be back next month to see if it's more my cup of tea. Read Full Review
