    Get Your Comic On - Dave Jones May 24, 2022

    An explosive issue which is easily my favourite of The Shadow War event. A story of epic magnitude which is clearly gearing towards an explosive ending. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 24, 2022

    With Shadow War winding down, the mini-event has delivered on high-stakes, over the top action while finally reuniting Batman and Robin. This issues cliffhanger sets up a very exciting seventh chapter. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is an intriguing chapter, but definitely feels like it's setting the stage for something much bigger in the final two chapters. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde May 26, 2022

    This story continues to be fantastic and enjoyable. There is more emotion and pathos than violent action, and that is unusual for a story such as this. I cannot wait for the next installment in the pages of Robin. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Lauren Fiske May 27, 2022

    I also wonder if we'll see Deathstroke, Batman, and Robin encounter one another in this way again. The crossover was amazing, but I do want more Slade Wilson-centered stories for his series. Now that “Shadow War” is over, I'm sure we'll be back to Deathstroke the Terminator in no time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 24, 2022

    Deathstroke Inc. #9 pushes the Shadow War forward in a way that elevates the stakes of what this crossover has been all about. While the major death proves to be nothing more than a plot device it does not get in the way of the pacing of this story. By the end of Deathstroke Inc. #9 you can't helped but be invested in where Joshua Williamson will go next with Shadow War. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. May 26, 2022

    In isolation this may be the best single issue of Shadow War. It is clean and straight to the point. Bad guy hurt, angry, and ready for war. On the other hand, I expect the inevitable fanboy screeching that is sure to happen anytime Ghostmaker clashes with any fan favorite character. Does his inclusion ruin the story? No, but it doesn't help. Ultimately, it is a perfectly fine read and lead up to Robin #14, where I'm sure some kind of War will begin. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 24, 2022

    Deathstroke Inc. #9 is an okay at best experience. It sets up the fallout of Deathstroke losing his son well, but a lot of the action ends up being more flash than anything else. Read Full Review

    "Shadow War" certainly hasn't done any favors for a series that was already leaning far too heavily on stylistic embellishments. Read Full Review
