    Deathstroke certainly rises from the proverbial ashes in Deathstroke Inc. #5, and that's not the only surprise. The council that make up T.R.U.S.T. are revealed and Slade Wilson makes his move in another pulse-pounding issue. Read Full Review

    Deathstroke Inc. #5 overflows with outstanding character exploration. This issue is at its best when delving into Slade's fractured psyche. Williamson's use of the visions from Crooked House to justify Deathstroke's decisions is perfect. Unfortunately, the book loses footing once the series' antagonists begin to twirl their metaphorical mustaches, as much of this conflict's outcome has been alluded to in upcoming solicitations. Thankfully, Paolo Pantalena's excellent artwork and panel layouts manage to maintain the narrative tension throughout this issue's inevitable conclusion. Read Full Review

    While this title has maintained an unpredictable vibe since the start, it's building towards something big"maybe bigger than we know, given recent announcements. It really feels like Williamson is building the future of the DCU in these titles. Read Full Review

    I do think the final scene has immense potential and am excited to see what Joshua Williamson and the team behind DeathstrokeInc. come up with next. For now, though, I'm going to keep that final image of Deathstroke in my mind's eye. Read Full Review

    This non-stop approach to pacing and the seriousness of the reversals make this issue a thrill ride that only increases momentum. If it can maintain it, then Deathstroke Inc. just became must-read material. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 25, 2022

    Deathstroke Inc. #5 finally shows what this book is all about, and I'm excited for what comes next.  Unfortunately, the first half of the issue felt like total filler to fill pages before the explosive ending, but it's big enough to almost make up for that.  Overall, this book feels more and more critical to Joshua Williamson's Infinite Frontier story, and I suggest picking it up.
