The script by series writers Lana Cho and Ben Sokolowski is fast-paced and informative, though we still know nothing of Slade's motivations in seeking out Yao Fei in the first place. The only real new information we glean from this story is the name of Slade's partner - Billy Wintergreen. This is an interesting nod to the original comics, where William Wintergreen is Slade Wilson's most loyal companion.
Sadly, the artwork by Allan Jefferson and Le Beau Underwood doesn't match the script in quality. Jefferson's pencils are uneven, with characters losing detail in the middle and far distance. Underwood's inking is similarly eratic, with some panels featuring objects that are barely outlined, with no detail on the interiors. Despite that, this issue should be of interest to Deathstroke fans interested in learning more about an alternate-universe take on the character.
