    One thought on “Deathstroke, Volume 1: The Professional”

    1. Did you know Rebirth is a massive hit for DC? They’re selling a buttload of these comics! But is anyone reading them? Because if they are, how are DC still managing to sell so many comics when they’re this bad?? I’m honestly at a loss to explain it.Despite his horrendous Black Panther comics at Marvel, I was willing to give Christopher Priest another shot but after Deathstroke Rebirth, that’s it. I’m never reading another Christopher Priest comic again!After some meandering drivel in A [...]

    2. Issues with Batman were okay. Everything before that was pretty meh. Artwork wasn't to my liking, at all. Full review to come.

    3. At first I didn't like it. The first two issues are confusing, jumbled, and pretty hard to following. Then it starts panning out, and you get into it, and then it clicks. It's a lot of fun when Damien and Batman come in. Batman being cold and calculated and Damien being a little shit in the best way possible. Works well to see the two work with Deathstroke and Rose (his daughter). Listen I don't like Slade much. I never understood the hype around him. I believe Judas Contract is veryyyyyy overra [...]

    4. Had this mixed up with Deathstroke, Volume 1: Legacy instead. Sorry if I have steered anyone wrong. But, I hear this newer collection is no better

    5. Wow! I don't think I've read anything having to do with Deathstroke since the glory days of the New Teen Titans. Takes me back. It's a tribute to Wolfman and Perez that their character is still going strong and seemingly an integral part of the DC Universe.The book is all twisty and plot-y, appropriate for an action title with a mercenary protagonist. I found the storyline a bit confusing at first. It does a lot of jumping around, but there are some nice touches. I liked the handling of Clock Ki [...]

    6. I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review, sort of. I was supposed to receive Astro City, Vol 14, but got this one instead. By mistake. Whatever. 3 stars, and showing promise. I was really confused about what was happening with all of the flashbacks and jumping all over the globe, but about halfway through the book, things started coming together. Probably because a certain character just seemed to disappear. The book ends very abruptly, right in the middle of [...]

    7. I received an eARC copy of this graphic novel from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.First off, I loved the artwork. The characters were drawn vividly and the color really jumps out and is pleasing to the eye.But. The story? Eh. There were good moments, but overall it was pretty disjointed. Even within each issue, the storyline jumps from past to present to not as past but more past than present to kinda present to huh? And, where I though this was a reboot of sort [...]

    8. When I heard that Christopher J. Priest, the first black comic book writer and editor for Marvel and DC Comics was coming out of retirement, I knew I had to pick-up what ever project he was doing. After reading his amazing work for Black Panther (which will be made into a movie next year) I had very high expectationsd they have been met. He came back to write one of the most notorious characters in DC Comics history and brought his signature style to it. This was a blast to read pretty much a ve [...]

    9. ARC REVIEW Story: This is a good starting point for new readers of Deathstroke. The first half of the volume; Prologue, Among Thieves, Band of Brothers, flip flops between the past and the present giving the reader a nice idea of the origin not an in depth one but it gives all the right information. The first three parts also tells of Deathstroke dealing with an African Warlord, the Red Lion, to save his friend Wintergreen. He also has to deal with the Clock King. The second half of the volume B [...]

    10. Not bad but not great. I liked seeing Slade come back but the story got a little cheesy at times. I would read more of this series. Didn't care for the art although the Batman redesign was pretty cool.

    11. I didn't care for the beginning of the series. It was a little too grim and gritty for me. But then Christopher Priest brought in those same storytelling methods that made his Black Panther series so great. Once Rose shows up the book really takes off. Her relationship with Slade is fantastic. I'd really like to see Priest write a series featuring Damien Wayne after his appearance in this book. I love how Damien is written as this snotty, little shit. He's hilarious. Carlo Pagulayan and Joe Benn [...]

    12. Revisitación y/o establecimiento en un solo arco de toda la mitología del personaje mientras se cuenta otra trama, se establece a los personajes y se enriquece su caracterización, además de que se integra perfectamente en el universo DC (con algunas de las mejores versiones del fantoche gothamita y del tontolacapa) sin olvidarse de crear personajes y entornos nuevos (León Rojo, el reverso deceíta sin escrúpulos ni medias tintas de Pantera Negra). Y el impagable sentido del humor de Priest [...]

    13. I'm not a fan of the character Deathstroke. I wouldn't put him in the top 25 villains at DC and I've never really read much with him as a central figure, but since this was free, I figured I'd check it out. Christopher J. Priest has told a underwhelming story with many unnecessary flashbacks. Those flashbacks come at weird times in the story and break the flow of the narrative. I understand that these Rebirth books are supposed to be a jumping on point for new readers, but even with the flashbac [...]

    14. The first half of this comic is a schizophrenic jumbled mess that is trying way way way too hard to be smart. Super PAC's, Kurds aren't jihadis, Khmer Rouge, on and on and on. Non-linear stories work when its abundantly clear *when* things are happening, Priest needs a stronger grasp on how to inform readers what the hell is going on. Too convoluted, a rocky start.The second half of this story is fantastic. A complex story, not convoluted. Witty characters, still trying to be too smart with the [...]

    15. wow, this rebirth is really a sh*t parade of terrible albumsThere was nothing interesting about this Deathstroke And I like Deathstroke But this piece of §#!é made sure I will never continue reading thisDC is running out of chances Think I'm ready to move on now :p

    16. I've been hearing a lot about the Rebirth Deathstroke series, and after the recent crossover with Titans and Teen Titans, I thought I'd give it a try. I really don't like the character that much, but writer Priest gives the reader a reason to want to know more about Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. I liked the backstory and the way Priest interweaves it with the present. Looking forward to catching up on this book.

    17. Overall, a pretty good volume. It got much better as it went along. The first few issues involve separate missions and people from Deathstroke's past. I'm no expert on Slade so these were new-to-me characters. Then the book settles into the main arc, which was the best part for me. A hit is taken out on Deathstroke's daughter and they end up in Gotham having a head-to-head with Batman and Robin. The ending brings a shock reveal that hooks you into needing to keep reading.

    18. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. It took me a long time to write this review. Probably that is because I hate saying bad things about comics. Even when I don’t like a character, or story, or whatever, I know others love them. So, anyway, it took me a while to decide how to say I didn’t like this new Deathstroke comic at all.When I started this book, I didn’t know very much about Deathstroke. (Well, other than what has been in The Arrow tv show, which isn’t anywhere close to the comics [...]

    19. Veteran writer Christopher Priest returns to comics for the DC Comics Rebirth event in Deathstroke, Volume 1: The Professional. Priest, ever the professional himself, utilizes all the standard tools that has made his arsenal familiar: quippy dialogue, chapter headings, sometimes-confusing flashbacks, and, oh yes, planting the seeds for a long play. For the most part, his devious tactics are all on point, but with this collected edition falling under the Rebirth project, the mighty Priest may hav [...]

    20. Read this review and more on my blog, uncovered-books.I received a free copy of Deathstroke Volume 1: The Professional from DC Comics in exchange for my honest opinion.I feel like Deathstroke is a character that you feel both sorry and not sorry for. You feel sorry for how he became what he is currently, but you don’t because he enjoys what he does and he chose this life. This is touched on in Volume 1, which does not bother me. They tried to humanise someone who really does not deserve it; bu [...]

    21. Ah Slade Wilson the merc that inspired the merc with the mouth Wade Wilson aka Deadpool. Deathstroke is the best damn assassin in the DC multiverse (or whatever they are calling it). The first half of this volume is confusing and not all that interesting sadly, but luckily the back end stuff is interesting and intriguing enough to make me want to give another volume a try. The first half deals with a confusing series of double and triple crosses and also a dump for lots of character info, but sa [...]

    22. I like Deathstroke and my rating goes to my liking of the guy and to my admiration for the artwork. As to the plot, I was very confused at the beginning and it was hard to follow. I started to enjoy it a bit more when Mr. Batman appeared and I am not even a Batman fan.As I said, I like Deathstroke and I was a bit disappointed, I was ready to love it and I barely liked it. I think the art was actually my favorite part of it.*Digital review copy provided by NetGalley & the publisher in exchang [...]

    23. Well, it's better than the Tony Daniel/Rob Liefeld New 52 Deathstroke - which could well be the definition of damning with faint praise. Better than terrible doesn't necessarily mean it's actually good.What it is is OK. Writer Christopher Priest makes no introductions to the character or his world. If you're not already familiar with Slade Wilson you will likely be lost. The art is pretty decent but there are a few different pencilers in this collection and some of the subsequent style changes a [...]

    24. Well this wavered between one and two stars. 😡The flashbacks in this really should have been labeled or provided dates - 1/2 of the beginning I didn't even realize that I was watching flashbacks. The story isn't great and is SUPER confusing to keep up with who is killing (or not killing) who.

    25. First Deathstroke I've ever read. Figured it would be a good starting point. Nope. Have no idea what I just read. Not enjoyable at all. No clue who the characters were, and it appeared to jump back and forth time-wise. Not recommended at all. Disappointment.

    26. This was a tough book to get through, the writing is pretty bad. If you want to get to know Deathstroke from a newbie perspective this is not a book for you. I know very little about Deathstroke and I felt lost at times. The book starts with an african adventure rescuing Wintergreen but it also has flashbacks to a younger Slade which make a super confusing start. The story continues on with Rose his daughter and a hit put on her but the story is a mess of flashbacks that don't connect very well [...]

    27. The most stylized of the rebirth line so far, not afraid to trust the reader with a fragmented story. Down-marks for inconsistent art that leads to confusion about characters and a murky history that I was either unfamiliar with or which was thoroughly unexplained.

    28. Read because Bleeding Cool's Rich Johnston insisted it felt like Priest's peerless Black Panther run, and I can see his point; the white-on-black typewriter-style captions, the climactic 'but I bribed the architect first' fight scene between two consummate planners. But that book had a (hilarious) narrator to keep everything clear as we jumped between scenes and times; this one doesn't. And Panther is a character who default fascinates me, whereas I've yet to be convinced Deathstroke has more to [...]
