The cover is so cool and with Deathstroke going through an emo-phase and crowning himself as King Deathstroke, the cover is very plot relevant. 2/2 The art is divisive for me because it is kinda ugly, but I like the detail when it looks really good, and I think it works more than it doesn't. 1.5/2 The dialogue is good with both really serious and funny moments that both work really well. 2/2 The s more
