Hey what's up you guys, just wondering if any of you guys know if Deathstroke would be a good pick-up for a villainous-side of comic reading. The guy is beast and I only hear good things about him. Smart, fast, strong..wtf, he can use 90% of his brain! Let me know if any of you guys take interest in this superhero-villain.

I picked up the Deathstoke issue last week. I read green arrow an DS is part two of the crossover . The crossover issues are always hard to base an option for an on going. That issue was pretty battle action focused. It was fun.

I read it all and

Higgings run was, half boring and the other half was just ok

Liefeld's run was terrible, ugly art and the writing was horrible, full with cliches, plotholes and constantly contradicting itself

and the last coupld of issues have been just passable but they arent good

@arnoldoaad: Nicee, thanks for the feedback on the title. Thinking of catching up on some deadpool or darkseid if anything. I know both these titles can produce some nasty story arcs.

??? I'm assuming you still mean Deathstroke :p
If you want to jump on Deathstroke, do it with the next issue since that's when a new writer comes along.

THe Deathstroke series was good until Kyle Higgins left the book,now under Liefeld it sucks.

While I feel like people are a little too harsh on the title, Deathstroke is certainly not a highlight of the new 52. As amazing as the character is, I wouldn't recommend it unless you really just like the random blood, violence, and explodey stuff without an eye for detail.

The book it enjoyable again now that Justin Jordan(also writing Team 7) is writing it.

The moment that I heard Leifeld would be writing for it, I promised myself to never go anywhere near it
