    As I said earlier, it's not the best of the Flashpoint tie-ins, but it is for sure the most fun. How could you not love pirates with super-powers? Well, modern-day pirates, none of that Pirates of the Caribbean garbage. Not only that, it's super-violent. At least that's a plus for me. This isn't a must have Flashpoint tie-in, unless you hate fun. I don't know how much more clear I could make it. Did I mention Warlord yet? Read Full Review

    The art is also a bit weaker than it was in issue #1. Joe Bennett's panels grow fairly muddy or unclear at times, and the opening battle lacks the full sense of power and chaos it should have possessed. That said, other pages have a better sense of flow and boast more detail. Hopefully this series will allow Bennett plenty of practice as he gears up for Deathstroke's ongoing book. Read Full Review

    This issue offer some good times in terms of brawls, but almost nothing in the way of overarching plot. Read Full Review

    This Deathstroke book continues to be a guilty pleasure simply because the idea of metahuman pirates going around the open seas while having to contend with the Atlanteans is a surreal experience to watch. It plays the pirate side fairly well as you can expect from just a pair of issues and shows how quick a life can end. The characters are fun and though one of my favorites was lost, it did shuffle Sonar around to a new position and changes the dynamic of the group in general. The book does come across as mostly fluff as to be expected, it's hard to imagine it really having a significant impact on the core storyline in the main series, but I'm enjoying it for what it is and the fact that after it's over, there won't be another pirate style metahuman series.
