After the closing bombshell of issue 1 where it was revealed that *Spoiler* Wintergreen wasn’t dead.

Issue 2 picks up the story with Slade and wintergreen trying to figure out who sold him out. It begins in what I can only presume is a flashback of Slade’s son having a wild party before being kidnapped while Slade is on a mission with his team. The story is told through a jumpy mixture of flashbacks and present tales but no timeline is giving so it may take a second read through to sort out what was happening when. It doesn’t take away from Deathstroke doing what he does best especially when faced with a duo of assassins to dispatch in style.

Issue 2 also introduces ravager as Rose Wilson, Slade’s daughter who will probably be more included in issue 3 but Slade’s eldest son grant is also mentioned at the start of the issue so hopefully we get some more info on his part to play as he has also taken on the mantel of ravager at one point.

This was a good issue slightly let down by the jumpy timeline

Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue.
