I am just starting to get into DC and his appearance in the Shade peaked my interest.

So, is this series worth the cost?

@thanosrules: If that appearance peaked your interest then you will love Deathstroke. It's currently the only book that I purchase monthly. In a nutshell the series provides everything you saw in the battle with Shade. Good story, multiple twists, badassery, and everything Deathstroke does.. isn't always quite for the reason you believe.

@thanosrules: It depends what you like.

It's a lot of fighting, with very little plot (mostly due to the pacing relying entirely on blowing stuff up). Pretty much what you might expect from a Deathstroke series. Considerably inferior to the earlier 'Deathstroke the Terminator' series, though the art is better admittedly.

If you want a really good DC title try Animal Man or Swamp Thing (or both!).

Batman has also been fantastic. If you're a fan of the überviolence, Deathstroke is probably the best written of the DC titles right now in that regard.

My most favorite comic of the new 52 (I'm currently following 10 series) definitely worth a read.
