    This issue serves it's purpose as an origin story, but it's so drawn-out that it becomes a bore to read " with the help of Adeline's grading narration, which still would have been tolerable in smaller doses. Read Full Review

    "Deathstroke" #0 is the sort of comic that is forgettable, but by no means awful. Liefeld's done better in the past, but he's also done worse. For a C-list character like Deathstroke, though, his title needs to be dynamite rather than forgettable if it's going to survive. I wish Liefeld well, but based solely on "Deathstroke" #0 it's definitely time for someone else to give the title a whirl. This just isn't fun enough to maintain an audience for long.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 13, 2012

    I don't want to be harsh or cruel, but this issue was absolutely unnecessary. The promise of Deathstroke's origin was fulfilled, but that fulfillment was pretty much a retelling of a story from 1984 with a few new barnacles thrown on to make it feel different. The art was sub-par from top to bottom, and the best lines of the issue were written by Marv Wolfman and not the current creative team. Deathstroke #0 doesn't get the job done in either story or art, and while it might be of interest to fans of the artist or diehard fans of the character, but I wouldn't want to pay 3 dollars for it, earning a disappointed by not at all unexpected 1 out of 5 stars overall.
