    Creatively perfect, simply put this arc is incredible and has the potential to rock the DC world to it's core. The writing is heart racing and the illustrations hypnotic. Read Full Review

    Paolo Pantalenas artwork has an intensity to it that aids this storyline. Pantalenas style is reminiscent of 90s artists that had an edgier perspective with sharper lines and dynamic poses. Romulo Fajardo Jrs colors are clean with clear distinction and strong blending. Read Full Review

    The first of two chapters of Shadow War out this week, this installment mostly follows the bad guysalthough that's really almost everyone in this series. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Apr 28, 2022

    I like more cerebral thought provoking stories. This is a mystery through and through, and after the first three issues there really aren't many answers. That will change in the next chapter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 26, 2022

    Deathstroke Inc. #8 continues the Shadow War event but only pushes the story forward slightly.  Joshua Williamson seems to be stalling, and I'm getting frustrated.  However, I am still on board because the big picture story is intriguing, I just need more from each issue than we've gotten in the past two installments.

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Apr 27, 2022

    Deathstroke #8 is a disappointing chapter that doesn't progress the story while recycling story bits that we have all seen before. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Lauren Fiske Apr 29, 2022

    Deathstroke Inc. #8 was neither good nor bad, but it was absolutely just a crossover issue, both for the series and the “Shadow War” arc. I can't believe I'm writing it, but I miss the storyline about Slade Wilson kind of going off the deep end and creating his own villainous cooperative. Hopefully,we'll be back to our regularly scheduled Deathstroke shenanigans in the next issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee May 2, 2022

    Part three of the current Batman related crossover plays out in 'Deathstroke Inc.' #11. But, it doesn't really add anything to the story, or to the series so far. If anything, it's another step in the wrong direction for a comic book series that, originally, seemed to be a highly original series. Now, it's beginning to feel like another mediocre mainstream comic book title. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Apr 27, 2022

    Characters posturing in outfits that make them appear to be overdosing on steroids and quick flurries of action that often lose track of key individuals leave this issue seeming like it's pulled from a past decade. It's the small moments that matter most in Deathstroke Inc. #8, while events proceed in the background. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 2, 2022

    In the end, the third chapter of Shadow War in Deathstroke Inc. #8 was a big miss. A few things happened that pushed the narrative forward but more than anything this issue just pointed out how dull of leads Deathstroke and Respawn are. Luckily the ending to this issue does tease a big improvement for chapter four of Shadow War. Read Full Review
