My Deathstroke promo is (finally) up. Final ordering cutoff (FOC, which I thought meant Friends Of Charlie) is coming up, so please spread the word and this link: ChristopherPriest.Com/Deathstroke. I’ve never been more nervous about a new title launch. This is a book most readers will either love or hate because it both reinforces classic history and reinterprets it. The characters are exactly the same and completely different. Will Deathstroke fans like what we’re doing, or will the Rebirth enrage them?
The answer is yes.
If you have never before in life read Deathstroke, please feel invited to jump in. Absolutely no prior knowledge of Deathstroke, his supporting cast, New 52 or even the Rebirth event itself is necessary to begin reading this book. Deathstroke: Rebirth may well be the most accessible comic I’ve ever written, and “The Professional,” our first story arc, is a rebuilding arc designed to reintroduce characters and concepts created by Marv Wolfman and bring them into 2016.
