    B 74% More than Satisfactory Notes A hyper violent onslaught, it seeps in just enough story to avert a bloody slog through the dank and wanton overkill.

    Remember that movie, Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag Me neither, but if that were the title of this volume and because of Deathstroke s penchant for decapitating his opponents, they d need, if not a bigger duffel bag, at least of them These pages are liberally splashed red with blood and epic violence, generally of the other guy getting stuck in some fashion on Deathstroke s nasty sword.At least DC didn t water down their treatment of unrepentant assassin Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke by letting him bake quiche or watch Golden Girls marathons or having a kitty chase a ball of yarn as a screen saver He s a nasty piece of work with only one thing on his mind reducing the DC universe one bit player at a time.In the past, I ve mentioned in my reviews about comic characters having Daddy issues, but this one is the mother of all Daddy issue comics Bottom line This definitely won t be everyone s cuppa, but for w...

    I can t decide if I like it or not.On one hand, there s lots of action, violence, and gore Yay On the other hand, it s Deathstroke So, it s not like you re actually rooting for the guy to win Higgins se...

    Slade Wilson is Deathstroke, the world s greatest assassin, but he is aging and it seems his legacy is waning he is no longer considered as deadly as he once was Incensed, he sets out to prove the naysayers wrong, killing and maiming the competition and taking out impossible targets But someone close to him he once thought was dead turns out to be alive and wants his head And his long list of enemies have decided enough is enough Deathstroke must pay Kyle Higgins delivers exactly what you d expect from a book titled Deathstroke Legacy and sporting a Simon Bisley cover lotsa killing, lotsa attitude, and a helluva lot of blood and violence Deathstroke reminded me of Frank Miller s King Leonides from 300 , a battle hardened warrior concerned only with war to the exclusion of all else and an eye to how history will remember them Deathstroke however is less likeable as he treats his son with the bare minimum of civility, much less be a father to him.That said, his gung ho attitude to every task and penchant for over the top violence make him a thoroughly entertaining character in a thrilling story of vengeance This first book is a non stop, frothing at the mouth action blitzkrieg of a story as Deathstroke hacks his way through on...

    Considering the enduring status and popularity of Deathstroke, he s had few good stories in recent years I ve given up on his solo outings and his cameos in other books are often little than a transparent attempt to boost sales I m hoping to read Marv Wolfman s original run in future, but first I wanted to re read the one book I did enjoy, Kyle Higgins Deathstroke Legacy.His eight issue run is full of bombastic violence and bloodshed, but it s grounded by a surprisingly personal story arc involving Slade s reputation and legacy Artists Joe Bennett and the aptly named Art Thibert make it work visually by going all out with explosive outdoor carnage and sheer brutality in close quarters There is the odd moment where it s unclear what s happening in a fight or where the already bulky characters are drawn as an undefined mass, but overall the book has a solid, consistent look Colourist Jason Wright gets to use a whole lot of red...

    I picked up a bunch of obscure to me New 52 titles at a book sale, and I figured I d give them a shot I did recognize the name Deathstroke, for which I give myself a pat on the back.I don t remember where I heard it, mind, but it is familiar ish to me.Aha, yes Teen Titans I never read any of the older TT comics, but I did watch the anime style show that was on CN for a while Now I know that those characters are very different from their comic book counterparts, but hey, it had a catchy theme song in Japanese and I thought Raven was pretty cool After wading through Lemire s disappointing Teen Titans Earth One last year, I fell down the Wikipedia rabbit hole reading about the team They seriously need to stop trusting people, because it seems that everyone who joins the team ends up betraying them or turning evil Deathstroke is one of the Titans main enemies.So, he got his own comic I think now that I know what to expect, I d read of these, but the first one was a little whoa Deathstroke, who s a one eyed metahuman read genetically...

    Slade Wilson is a jerk Let s be honest He has put his desire to be the best warrior before everything He will take on just about any mission just so he can achieve the recognition and accolades of completing the mission It s not about the money.I found him hard to like That makes it s difficult to root for a character when he s so insufferable I appreciate how incredibly kickbutt the man is, but his colossal ego and the enormous chip on his shoulder ruins things for me.This is a very violent comic Lots of blood and decapitated heads flying I think the body count is easily in the hundreds At the root of it, this is a story about the consequences of dysfunctional families on a person s psyche Because Slade s father was abusive and pretty much a rat, he became obsessed with being the biggest and strongest, and this nature destroyed his relationship with his own son, G...

    When I originally read this book 6 months ago, I didn t find it special in any way After reading it again I was surprised to find I enjoyed it a lot This was one of the first titles I tried from the New 52, at the time it didn t really grab me at all So little in fact that I still haven t bothered picking up the second and last volume Lobo Hunt Upon reading through it again I saw so many things I missed the first time round Maybe it was because my knowledge of the N52 universe has been expanded in the last 6 months, but I really enjoyed this book Little things like spotting Midnighter as the one who murders Slade s son Grant Wilson, aka Ravager Don t worry I promise that wasn t a spoiler This volume is full of action, blood and brutality, but of course it does it s a freakin Deathstroke title There s even a nice twist thrown in there for good measure.Slade is a ruthless killer emphasis on ruthless and he s getting old Everyone thinks he s past his prime as the worlds greatest assassin, so he s setting out to prove everyone wrong After a job leaves him with a suitcase containing something from his past, he sets out...

    Fun pulpy action with the requisite daddy drama that seems to always come with these narratives as it seems to be safer than having women in roles that aren t the victim.I ll stick to FPS s for my explosions and lack of women, but if it s your cup of tea to get that does of bad arseness in comic form, you d probably enjoy this.That said, Higgins doesn t actually treat women that badly in this Mostly it seems by avoiding them, but giv...
