Deathstroke Vol. II
review 1: What a shit show. The first volume was potential and so of course this volume ignores everything that was going on in volume one.Deathstroke fights Deadborn who is obviously a parody of Deadpool. It's wasted oppurtunity because Liefeld may have created Deadpool but he isn't the version of Deadpool that everyone loves.None of the other stories are really worth mentioning. The finale is a tie-in with a series I've never heard of. There is a HUGE info dump to help understand what is going on. Even after all the information the story is rather boring.
review 2: I might be the only one that digs this, but stuff it I don't care. I thought this was awesome.Volume 1 of this series happened to be one of my first experiences with the New 52. Upon reading it the first tim
... moree I have to say, I didn't really like it that much. Enough to not buy the next volume for another 6 or so months. I thought I would give it another try and re-read the first instalment, and colour me stupid cause I enjoyed it immensely. Almost like I was reading the book through new eyes. So many things I missed the first time round were revealed to me, changing my whole outlook of the title. It was safe to say I was ready to get stuck into volume 2!I'll mention straight off the bat that I thought it was strange how nothing was mentioned of Slade's encounter with his son Grant, at the end of the last book. Not that it hindered the story, but I just thought it was odd. We kick into this book with a contract to hunt the space brute Lobo. In my opinion this arc was pretty average, after the emotional ties that made the previous story so engaging. We also have some ho-hum fill in characters that help out Slade as he completes his contract, all of which are pretty forgettable. I think the thing that annoyed me the most about this story was Deathstroke's sudden change of personality. On the last book he was a ruthless killer, with what seemed to be without conscience. Then all of a sudden he's, well, just different. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then we get to see some of Slade's origins in Team 7, which I am actually waiting to arrive in the mail any day now. This story gave the reader a look into how he became the brutal killer he is today, as well as a look into his relationship with his family. The end of the book is where it starts to shine. Leading us into an awesome stand off with the whole Wilson clan, one I was very entertained by. All topped off with an ending that fit the cutthroat nature of the series.There are a lot of bad reviews for this title, but I'm a simple man with simple pleasures. I love reading comics, whether they are exceptional, or rather average. For me this title was really entertaining, but it won't be for everyone. Regardless it still stands as a great look into another area of the N52 universe. Long live the mighty Deathstroke! less

I would have given a 5 had it not been for the Lobo story line, the rest of it is so good.
Digs into the history of Deathstroke and the Deathstroke family.And he fights Lobo.
I thought Deathstroke Vol 1 was pretty good but the new writer Killed it
Bad art, tedious story, yet I keep reading.
Pretty solid read.
