Some thoughts about Deathstroke #18
Jericho has just learned what Slade has been doing recently and is ready to deal with his father once for all and he might be successful.
Everything has been building up to this.
Christopher Priest finally delivers the inevitable confrontation between Deathstroke and Jericho and is pretty satisfying so far. Of course that's not exactly the main focus since Priest developes several parts of the story at the same time which involves both Joey and Slade but also Rose, Wintergreen and several others.
The fight is quite intense and plays with the usual themes and background that the writer has been using since the beginning. Plus, there's also an ongoing mystery about who is really behind these events which might be explored in the next crossover.
Joe Bennett handles the artwork and is really good looking with a clean style, beautiful characters and intense action.
Excellent read, wish this was still be biweekly.
