Some thoughts about Deathstroke #30
Batman has been sent a letter that could change his whole life and that's apparently connected to Deathstroke.
This is a story that Christopher Priest has been planning for a while and the beginning is quite promising.
The plot is centered around a mystery that seems to want to put Bruce and Slade against each other while showing interesting hints about who could be the true culprit. One of the strongest aspects of this issue is the parallels that are immediately drawn between the two, particularly their roles as fathers and how different they can be from one another but at the same time how similar they can be. Priest uses a bit of history to create solid characterization like how the Robin who describes Batman is clearly Dick Grayson which says a lot about their relationship and each other in a little segment.
The story escalates quite quickly due that it puts the protagonists at odds almost immediately while at the same time makes it seem like this is just a preview to the true event that is going to be developed while the arc keeps progressing.
Carlo Pagulayan handles the art and is really good looking, particularly the action scenes which are drawn intensely.
Solid opening, can't wait to see more of this.
