Some thoughts about Deathstroke #21
Slade has renounced his life as a mercenary and is ready to help others who need another chance. However, this might be more complicated than he imagined once that people try to conspirate against him.
A new storyline begins and so far looks like a promising one.
Christopher Priest brings a new chapter where he focuses on the ramifications from the last storyline by trying to portray a much more different Slade, a Slade that apparently has decided to become a superhero with his own team. The thing is that, as usual, Priest is trying to give more depth to such an overused premise and starts developing the inner conflict that Slade is dealing with and will most certainly keep being explored in upcoming issues.
The rest of the cast also receive interesting moments based on their interactions while the story offers some kinda predictable yet intriguing twists, particularly at the end since a famous character connected to Slade appears in her original portrayal.
Diogenes Neves is in charge of the pencils and his work is really solid with strong character expressions and clear storytelling.
Quite good read, excited for more.
