The brutal conclusion to Year One is here... Deathstroke may have completed his first contract, but he's still got a score to settle with the man who destroyed Slade Wilson's life. If you thought you knew Slade Wilson, you're about to learn how little you know about the origin of Deathstroke!

    I questioned if this arc was necessary, but Brisson and Soy crafted a strong character study with some fun glimpses of the master assassin in the making. This issue and arc are highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke Inc. has absolutely been a fun ride, but it had to end eventually, though I wish it werent with a slight stutter. Ed Brisson, Dexter Soy, and Veronica Gandini did a very good job with this last bit of the series and I definitely want to see them on another project together, maybe even a continuation of this one - though, depending on how Dark Crisis ends, there may be little chance of that.

    This title wraps up with this issue, although in many ways its main narrative ended with Shadow War and this Deathstroke: Year One story has been a completely different book. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, future chapters will bring back the vibrancy and excitement of those from the inception. Trying at patience, we shall see. Read Full Review

    Given the many Deathstroke comics and origins already in existence, it's a valid question why another "Year One"-style story was needed and Deathstroke Inc. #15 has no reply. Read Full Review

    I honestly didn't know a lot about deathstroke going into this year one story. I thought he was a cool character and all but didn't know all that much about him. I love year one stories so I picked this up and am so glad I did! I feel like I know so much more about slade Wilson as a character now which is
    exactly what a year one story should do. The only disappointment was I didn't realize this was the last issue of not only year one but deathstroke Inc. I really wish it wasn't over as I thoroughly enjoyed this book

    Unfortunate to see this series end, especially with Brisson on writing duties. This arc was fantastic.

    This time I want to talk about the cover for a second. Why only 2 of Slade's kids are there? Why Rose is there if she is not in the comic? It's hard for me explain it but this cover makes little to no sense to me. Anyway, and the comic? It's... ok. I loved the first issues but the ending here lacks punch. Year one biggest selling point was seeing some of Slade's feelings about his life that we never knew but the conclusion for this arc has nothing new for us. And nothing with real impact happens, the ending is predictable. This is not a bad comic by any means, it's fun and a good read but it offers nothing new.

    For a story that I didn't feel needed a retelling, Brisson wrote a solid story that was fun and had the feel of a 90's action movie.

    I know everyone is tired of Year One stories, but I liked this throwback to Slade. His being a father to create his "Cover Story?" I'm not sure about that one. I think he genuinely loved his kids, he just didn't know how to show it. I'm not sure what it is about writers hating their fathers recently. Jason Aaron is doing the same thing with the Punisher. Characters that don't love their families are not interesting because there's no reason to like them. A serial killer who comes in and kisses and laughed with his kids is interesting. But a guy who comes home and says, "you're necessary" is just a dick.
