The GoodThere's a hit on Deathstroke and writer Justin Jordan wastes no time diving right into the chaos. Slade heads to Japan to confront the man behind the order and what follows is a full plate of action with a side of even more action. We literally have just one page of chatting before the first strike is made. From there, it's Slade doing what he does best -- being a virtually unstoppable badass.
Captions remind us yet again of his superior physicals and talent while panels have him humiliating dozens of foes. It's nothing we haven't seen before, yet there's two variables that help keep it fun. For one, they're in the confined space of a train. And second, he's fighting friggin' ninjas! They're skilled, but you almost feel bad for them come the second splash page. Dudes like that against someone with Deathstroke's armor and weaponry? It's no contest and that's more than clear as it plays out in a rather unfortunate manner for them. Jordan once again hits home the point that Slade's a tactical man -- and a good tactician is always prepared.
Edgar Salazar and Juan Fernandez's art had a few moments in this issue that really impressed. There's two solid splash pages of Wilson taking on his enemies and Fernandez creates one of the most vibrant explosions I've seen.
