DEATHSTROKE #15
Written by JUSTIN JORDAN
Art and cover by SCOTT CLARK
On sale DECEMBER 12 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
• A long dead memory from Slade's past resurfaces, looking for revenge!
• Will the legendary assassin known as Deathstroke finally be pushed past his breaking point?+

If he turns out to be the new regular writer, all I have to say is:

Not bad, to be honest

Definitely not bad. Jordan's a boss, and it already looks like we're getting pre-Liefeld 'Stroke back.

What else has Jordan written, that would make him a fit for Deathstroke?

@SmashBrawler: According to his facebook/ twitter yes. He is the new on-going writer as of #15. He does not know who is doing 13 or 14. Though he is certain it is not Liefeld.

@Vance Astro: Team 7 #0 was pretty good.

@The_Tree: Indeed, and Clark's cover has "I'm back" all over it.

Awesome. Looks like I'm getting back into this series

@Vance Astro: Haha, no problem. It's a new DC book that started about a week or so ago. It's pretty badass, Jordan's writing style will fit Deathstroke great.

@SmashBrawler: Nice! Sorry about my typo. I meant he doesn't know who is writing 13 or 14.

Oh, it's new? Does it feature older DC characters or is a brand new cast?

Don't worry, I got that. Although the solicits said Liefeld is doing those issues, so I'm kinda confused now

@Vance Astro: Yep, as of this moment it has Deathstroke, Black Canary, John Lynch, Kurt Lance, Alex Fairchild, James Bronson, Summer Ramos, Grifter, Amanda Waller and Dean Higgins. Mostly DC characters that were already in existence with a dash of wildstorm.

@SmashBrawler: Yeah they'll have to switch that up. Even liefeld announced the 0's would be his final issues. they'll have to find someone to sub in for those 2 particular issues.

You weren't reading it before? It's actually not that bad.

I dropped the title until Liefeld is shot from a canon aimed at the 90s where he belongs.

Now thats how Stroke is suppose to look. F'n Liefeld. Glad the DCU has stuck with this title in-spite of his bullsh!t art.

He's actually not that bad of a writer but he's a ridiculously sub-par artist.

Thank god Liefeld is gone from this book. Deathstroke looks BADASS in that cover! I might pick it up.
