Deathstroke #32 cover by Robson Rocha, Daniel Henriques, and Brad Anderson
Christopher Priest has a knack for writing dialogue for familiar characters like Batman and Slade that fits while being unlike anything I've heard from the characters in the past Plus, the vicious nature of the fight and the constant attempts to one-up another make it a completely enthralling duel. Deathstroke #32 art by Carlo Pagulayan, Roberto[...]
Deathstroke #31 cover by Robson Rocha, Daniel Henriques, and Brad Anderson
They employ labyrinthine plots to strike at one another while remaining firmly dedicated to not allowing the other to victory.

Deathstroke gets an opportunity to[...]
Justice League #43 cover by David Yardin

The body count is unnervingly high in this issue, with each little mistake made by the Justice League being punctuated with another[...]

This leads Batman on a collision course with Deathstroke, and that can only end in blood. Deathstroke #30 cover by Lee Weeks and Brad Anderson The comic opens with a brief conversation between Alfred Pennyworth and Wintergreen, which is great on its own. I should have been looking forward to the kind of Batman Christopher Priest was going[...]

You heard that right: the inciting incident here is a package delivered to Bruce Wayne that contains "proof" that Slade is the true father of the current Robin[...]
Justice League #41 cover by David Yardin
Christopher Priest writing Black Panther into Justice League as a genocidal warlord aside—we'll definitely get back to that—this comic is another vicious takedown of the superhero genre courtesy of Priest. Priest has introduced a depressingly real and common scenario into his JL comic and has forced the team to confront it[...]
