ComicBook.comWaller vs. Wildstorm #3 centers on the showdown between Deathstroke and Battalion as it sprawls across Gamorra, ranging between sea, land, and air. It's an effective set piece that ties into other key threads, including both Lois Lane's investigation and the women running black ops from behind a microphone. Reliance on spreads and explosive splashes result in some underwhelming moments as flat appearances and inconsistencies in vehicles and other elements make them less impactful than intended. Yet the highlights of the fight and Deathstroke's attitude, in particular, make for a gripping and bloody battle between the two men. Much of the conspiracy will require readers to review earlier issues with long gaps between installments making it difficult to track the wide array of codenames, connections, and internecine plotting. Yet the structure of issue #3 showcases an unexpected climax that's bound to pay dividends when read as part of a whole when Waller vs. Wildstorm is collected.
