Batman and Deathstroke will have another face-off in the upcoming crossover event “Shadow War,” a three-month story-arc from DC Comics.
“As the writer on titles such as Robin, Deathstroke Inc., Infinite Frontier, Justice League Incarnate and now Batman, it’s clear that Joshua Williamson has an incredible passion for DC and its characters. Beginning in March, the fan-favorite writer is bringing fans Shadow War, a three-month crossover event where the worlds of Batman, Robin (Damian Wayne) and Deathstroke collide in an event that will have major ramifications in the DC Universe,” DC said on their website.
They continued, “The action begins on March 29, with Shadow War Alpha #1, written by Williamson, with art by Viktor Bogdanovic (Detective Comics). Slade Wilson commits an unthinkable act, and Talia al Ghul, the Daughter of the Demon, is out for blood! The League of Shadows is out to murder Deathstroke and destroy Deathstroke Inc., and it’s up to Batman and Robin to track Slade down and bring him to justice, but do they? This 48-page one-shot is priced at $5.99 and features a main cover by Jonboy Meyers, with variant covers by Bogdanovic and a card stock variant cover by Detective Comics artist Dan Mora…”
“The Shadow War action continues in April with Batman #122. Deathstroke Inc. #8, and Robin #13 and concludes in May with Batman #123, Shadow War Zone #1, Deathstroke Inc. #9, and Robin #14, concluding with the can’t-miss Shadow War Omega #1,” DC added.
The “Shadow War” kicks off on March 29, 2022 with the release of ‘Shadow War Alpha #1.’
Despite premiering as a Teen Titans villain, Deathstroke and Batman have had a constant rivalry, culminating in the ‘Deathstroke Vs. Batman’ story by Christopher Priest. This battle has leaked from the comic books and into other media, including ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ where Slade Wilson serves as a boss fight for the video game.
