In my humble opinion, “Deathstroke” has been DC’s most consistently great title in the ‘Rebirth’ era, if not for the entirety of the decade. Under the pen of [Christopher] Priest, Slade Wilson has become an even more intriguing character with a great supporting cast. The book is rife for the omnibus/deluxe hardcover treatment down the road, but before then, we’ve got an exclusive first look at the penultimate issue, #49, due out on November 6.
Written by Priest
Penciled by Fernando Pasarin
Inked by Oclair Albert and Vicente Cifuentes
Colored by Jeromy Cox
Lettered by Willie Schubert
Having ascended to near godhood, Jericho must confront his father, with the lives of his mother and sister hanging in the balance. Does Deathstroke stand a chance against such power? And is there any humanity left inside Jericho?
Thanks to DC for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
