"DEATHSTROKE will welcome you with open, blood-stained arms."--IGN
"Focusing on the twisted Wilson family dynamic is a brilliant decision that has grounded the book in complicated personal conflicts."--A.V. Club/The Onion
"Priest and company have hardly taken the typical approach to Slade Wilson or his terminations with this series, opting instead for something just as violent, but far more introspective."--Comic Book Resources
