DC Comics to Give DEATHSTROKE New Solo Series

  • Deathstroke is back with a new ongoing solo series in October. The announcement came this week from DC Comics via MTV.com who interviewed Tony S. Daniel, the writer and co-artist on the series along with Sandu Florea.

    The character formerly known in the 80’s as the Terminator, has enjoyed a huge resurgence when he appeared as the arch enemy on CW’s Arrow Season 2. That and his appearance in Batman: Arkham Origins has brought more exposure and thus, more fans into his fold.

    MTV’s Alex Zalben interviewed Daniel on the new project which we’ll excerpt here.

    MTV News: So Tony, what drew you to Deathstroke? What makes him a compelling character for you?

    Tony S. Daniel: I’ve always been a big Deathstroke fan, dating back to my teenage years and he’s only gotten more bad-ass with time. He’s an incredible character, whether you’re playing him in a video game or watching him on TV or reading him in a comic book. People love Deathstroke now more than ever due to all the avenues he’s available in, myself included.

    I tell people he’s sort of like a tricked out Batman, but he’ll kill you. Of course he’s not anything like Bruce Wayne, but he is a man with money and the means to pay for the gadgets and weaponry he’ll need to accomplish any goal. I’ve always been drawn to characters with a dark side and I think that makes him complex and compelling.

    If this Deathstroke series goes big, along with more appearances on Arrow or the Flash, could a solo TV show be far behind?
