Dead on Arrival 0

For a Deadshot comic made in 1988 this is pretty good.   It is hard to make a comic of a villain enjoyable but this one works so far.  Deadshot does execute a man he doesn't know who may be an undercover law enforcer, but he doesn't care. This was the only part of the book I didn't like.  He has no way of knowing if the man was a law enforcer or not and it is established that even if he did it wouldn't matter.  I'm not a fan of these kinds of scenes and the fact that he wasn't a law enforcer aft...
