    Year One has been a great read with some nice surprises and a classic take on Slade Wilson. The creative team has really delivered on all levels with this one.

    Ill say it before and Ill say it again, taken all together, Deathstroke: Year One is a high intensity, action packed tale that doesnt pull its punches. Ed Brisson, Dexter Soy, Veronica Gandini and Steve Wands are killing this series so far, just like their titular assassin.

    Despite my confusion, Deathstroke Inc. has definitely been enjoyable and entertaining. This issue in particular did feel a bit closer to what we’ve seen in previous issues and arcs, which was refreshing in its familiarity. The next issue will be the last of “Year One”, and I, for one, will feel bittersweet about it. I want Black Canary and Rose Wilson back. I want punchy colors and fantastic art. The consistency of the creative team keeping this arc completely in the past has been great stylistically but sadly, I’m just starting to get… bored?

    No matter what though, Deathstroke Inc. #14 was enjoyable and a great setup for the end of this chapter of Slade’s life. I will miss the serious nature of “Year One”, but I’m ready to get back to sarcasm and biting insults. Soon.

    There are some nicely brutal moments in this issue, and some good action scenes, but overall this issue doesn’t really advance the story too much. This whole arc has mostly felt like it’s covering things we already know.

    Deathstroke Inc. #14 introduces three superpowered killers in the penultimate chapter of “Year One,” and they appear to be exaggerated concepts from superhero comics much maligned 90s period. However, those outfits and weapons applied to cartoonishly simple characters possessed genuine detail and interest – their was impact, if not depth. These outfits appear to have been partially erased, simple without style and exaggerated without embellishment. There’s an absence of interest in pages possessing the plainest of all settings and antagonists. Telling the story of Deathstroke hunting victims atop this surface provides no options for interest as even the visceral elements appear bland. There’s a final bit of dialogue so cartoonish as to put this issue beyond recovery, regardless of whichever era it was released. You’ll have better luck finding fun Deathstroke stories in quarter bins; happy hunting.
