4aces Comics reviewed Deathstroke #1 Oct 25, 2014
6.0

OK dialogue, gory action and killing in Russia. Some decent ideas but sitt, Daniel is not a great writer. But better than his pathetic Hawkman was a couple years ago. Decent art and story-telling. I wanna like it as a Deathstroke fan, but it needs work.

except for a great parody of the Monkey's "I'm a believer" this issue was pretty bad. The same old, 5 years old Avengers vs. X-MEN arguments typical Marvel reasoning where the X-MEN put there own desires ahead of public safety and HORRIBLE DIALOGUE with reference to mainly crappy Remender stories. Probably because he can't be bothered look at anyone else's work. So yah.

Great art, but the climax is so quick and deflated, nothing to transfer the pain of death, and that's appropriate for MARVEL, cause they are the masters of regurgitating characters. At least the villain is associated with an old, and logical wolverine story

The story seems disjointed, like the team is trying to meld novel style drama with the current no descriptions style of comic book story telling that unfortunately dominates today. The art is fabulous and 2 very interesting characters show up. Still enjoyable but it doesn't feel like the team has enough pages in the issue to do what they wanted.
