Slade Wilson's popularity is arguably at an all-time high since being played by Manu Bennett in Arrow, and now his comic book counterpart will be getting a new monthly series from writer and artist Tony S. Daniel (Superman/Wonder Woman). DC promises that we'll see Deathstroke as never before in the exciting new series, with one surprise after another as Slade Wilson finds himself in the fight of his life! The character, without question, is the world’s greatest assassin and one of the most feared people on the planet; he’s been a mercenary-for-hire, but has now been recruited onto Task Force X, a.k.a The Suicide Squad. We're about to know a lot more about the complex man behind the missions. Are you planning on checking out the new Deathstroke series?

Also below is the DC Collectibles Deathstroke bust designed by Jim Lee (via MTV News)!

Oh my God, f*cking finally!

This could be good. The art work will be the shiz... not sure about the writing though. He did some good work pre New 52
GammerDad - 7/2/2014, 3:42 PM
Hell yes... shame about the writer though!

Hmm, interesting. I really enjoyed Kyle Higgins short run, but the title went down hill when Rob Liefeld took over. I might have to check this out though.
DarkGrifter - 7/2/2014, 3:47 PM
He's been prominently featured in a popular TV series, three video games, countless comic book titles and even had his own Kotobukyi statue made as well as several other toys, all which have occurred after his cancellation.
It's been well overdue, DC.

At least it aint Liefeld at the helm!

I'm looking forward to the new. Suicide squad with him but I'm so far behind I just wait for the trade paperbacks.

I know I love Daniel's art but I don't know about his writing.

But I have to agree with this: Kevberg - At least it aint Liefeld at the helm!

Plus, once I saw Deathstroke's name next to Tony Daniel's name I got so excited that I jumped around and did a bunch of weird looking things!

Okay, this looks good.

I was debating about picking up Higgins' Deathstroke trade but saw Liefeld did art on the 2nd one.
Stay away from this one Rob.

Vtopa - [frick] that wannabe clone ;)
JoJo1982 - 7/2/2014, 5:14 PM
Okay...... Let's try this again

Deathstroke series take 2, hope it actually gets some traction, he is such a great character.
DCGuy - 7/2/2014, 6:08 PM
yay Deathstroke the man that puts Deadshit I mean Deadpool to shame...anways love the armor in the art!
AnthonyLantern - 7/2/2014, 6:32 PM
TONY DANIEL ON DEATHSTROKE? YES!!…Wait…he's writing?….Damn
sameoldthing - 7/2/2014, 7:23 PM
Deathstroke deserves some quality comics based on his solo adventures.
He needs to be seen as a true mercenary type..truly a dangerous man but for the right price or motivation,he would battle villainous types as well. He's a complex character.

Keep Rob "No-Talent" Liefeld away from all comics please!
BlindJustice - 7/2/2014, 7:34 PM
A Deathstroke TV show? Sweet! Maybe they'll put it on Amazon or Netflix...

Oh wait, a crappily written comic book.

Nevermind.

Hopefully he doesn't job against Batman anymore. Son of Batman, Arkham Origins both had him get wrecked by Batman in one on one encounters... Deathstroke is better, faster, stronger and in some instances smarter.
Nivekian - 7/2/2014, 10:07 PM
Hopefully the retcon a lot of the stuff they have already done, the pre-new 52 Deathstroke was much, much better.

Not a fan of Tony Daniel his art is good but his noses just throw it off for me.

Damn you DC why can't you just put Sean Murphy to good use on your mainstream title
CauseImBatman91939 - 7/3/2014, 11:19 AM
October can't get here soon enough!

Much better costume than the armored robot get up he's worn the last two years.
