The new 52 has been my first straight up introduction to Deathstroke, I'm familiar with him to an extent having read some Teen Titans sporadically and dabbling in the Titans: Villains for hire (which i thoroughly enjoyed). Having always been intrigued by him as a character, I figured the new 52 was an ideal jumping on point for me. The preceding issue, I feel, did a good job showcasing what Deathstroke offers- He's an F'n BADASS!
That being said, it seems the writers felt it painfully necessary to reassure this conclusion with Issue #2. He we are given a whole comic which seems to span about 15 minutes and takes less than half that time to read. Not an awful comic by really.... just very, very, VERY one dimensional. I think it may actually have more explosions and decapitations than words. Now I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the (short) time I spent reading this, the art is much better than the cover would lead you to believe and any good ol' comic book fan should enjoy some quality Mercenary on Robot-motorcycle-thingy action.
So while I wasn't too thrilled by the unhanded trade-off of story/depth/dialogue for about Twenty pages of really cool violence, the voice in my head reminds me: "It's titled 'Road Rage brings the Carpocalypse', what were you expecting?". Guess my thoughts on Deathstroke #2 is best summed like a one-night stand of sorts, sure it was fun but not much past that and not entirely sure if I'll be coming back for #3.
