Grimlock ♥ Vision

I'm a well read technosexual who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

Deathstroke (2016-) #14 - Christopher Priest, Jeromy Cox, Bill Sienkiewicz, Norm Rapmund, Joe Bennett

This is what the cover promises.   I knew that the fact that Matt Murdock was blind was part of the connection to that character, so I was intrigued to see if I liked this more given the promise of this cover.   It turns out a lot of this is about not-Deathstroke, and the revelation comes at the end - which is bizarre since that would've been a big twist had it not been on the cover.   Since it was on the cover, I'd been hoping this issue would be about Deathstroke dealing with that blow. 

 

It was not.   And because of my expectations, I was let down by the content in this issue.   It was still well written, I just kept hoping they'd get to this part on the cover that they didn't until the last couple of pages.  I was annoyed enough to knock down one star, but I still blew through this, and I would have liked it had this not been the cover. 

 

I'm hoping the next couple of issues will be more interesting as they deal with, from the descriptions on Comixology, with the very issue that I'd hoped would be at heart in this issue.
