serberus08's Deathstroke #0 - A Soldier's Story review

Deadborn

I just have to say from the start that this issue wasn't that great. It was Liefeld epic, need I say more? This zero issue tells the origin tale of how badass Slade is from his days as a soldier. My one major problem is that Liefeld, in his infinite wisdom, didn't really show us what happened to his eye - I mean he gets shot but in a later panel his mask still has the full facial symmetry. He didn't give much of an explanation before flash-forwarding to a present panel of him in a grand armchair with his eye patch and goatee look. Through the narrative of the entire issue it was also quite predictable what the ending few pages would be about. which I thought was just thrown together and in a way cheesy.

Because of Liefeld's "art", I couldn't tell who was Slade in the spec ops shot without examining his goatee. The reason why this gets a higher rating than the past few issues is because it is the last installment of a DC title that Liefeld is apart of - thank God - and he can't go near my beloved Deathstroke again. Mark this issue on the calender, No-More-Liefeld Day, party's at my place this year.

    I just really cannot believe DC publish thisI understand that Liefeld said he had problems with the editor Brian Smith, but this had to be backwards, its the editors that had to have problems with Liefeldthere is a ton of problems with this bookfirst of allThe continuity makes absolutely no senseit not only makes no sense with the Higgin's Deathstroke run and it makes no sense with Team 7 #0 which came the same week but most importantly it makes no sense on itselfthe concept of time doesnt exist...
