    Issue #6 is also interesting because Eduardo Pansica come aboard to provide finishes for Joe Bennett's layouts. Not only is it a smooth transition, the end result is actually somewhat easier on the eyes. Pansica is able to hone Bennett's work and provide more detail and variety when it comes to facial work. With DC placing such an emphasis on firm, monthly release schedules, it may suit books like Deathstroke to rely on this approach more often. Read Full Review

    "Deathstroke" is a book that I think took a little time to find its way, and it's too bad that it's on the verge of getting retooled. For now, though, I'll enjoy what's left of Higgins' time on the book. It's found its voice, and right now it looks promising that Higgins will give us a strong conclusion. That's definitely better than nothing. Read Full Review

    This is another good issue of Deathstroke with some powerful moments, but it is undermined because of how long Deathstroke took getting to this point. The art is still mostly a miss and the story covers a lot quickly, but the characters are enjoyable and the story is satisfying, with a cliffhanger that will have you coming back to see an upcoming fight between Deathstroke and a not-so-newcomer.
