    I questioned if this arc was necessary, but Brisson and Soy crafted a strong character study with some fun glimpses of the master assassin in the making. This issue and arc are highly recommended.

    Deathstroke Inc. has absolutely been a fun ride, but it had to end eventually, though I wish it weren’t with a slight stutter. Ed Brisson, Dexter Soy, and Veronica Gandini did a very good job with this last bit of the series and I definitely want to see them on another project together, maybe even a continuation of this one – though, depending on how Dark Crisis ends, there may be little chance of that.

    This title wraps up with this issue, although in many ways its main narrative ended with Shadow War and this Deathstroke: Year One story has been a completely different book. It’s a compelling read, showing how Slade goes from being an ordinary soldier to the monster he is today. (…) We see how Slade is slowly becoming a series of masks, a man without anything human at his core, and he can take on any of them—even the mask of a decent husband and father. Of course, we all know the truth, and that creeping horror is what makes this issue work.

    “Year One” is over. Deathstroke Inc. is definitely better for it overall and I extend my congratulations to the consistent creative team throughout the months. Deathstroke Inc. #15 however is little more than the arc’s endcap. There’s nothing wrong with that, other than there’s no new territory being established. We don’t know where the story is headed in future issues, and that was at least one reassuring thing month after month with “Year One”.
    I’ve come to expect quite a bit from Deathstroke Inc. (I think of that rainbow story universe Slade found himself in many issues ago with immense fondness). These past few issues have been standard but unexciting. I wouldn’t call them boring per se, but they’ve been largely less creative than the series’ introductory issues.
    Hopefully, future chapters will bring back the vibrancy and excitement of those from the inception. Trying at patience, we shall see.

    “Year One” mercifully concludes in Deathstroke Inc. #15 with nothing new added to Deathstroke’s plot or character and familiar elements reheated past their expiry date. There’s nothing surprising in this final issue; Deathstroke completes the mission and overcomes his rivals in action sequences that never quite make sense given the stillness surrounding an open airplane at cruising altitude. (…) Given the many Deathstroke comics and origins already in existence, it’s a valid question why another “Year One”-style story was needed and Deathstroke Inc. #15 has no reply.
