Detective Comics #1010 Review

Detective Comics 1010 is nothing major - but well worth a read for some minor character tales and Deadshot trivia.

Told ya, wise guy…I never miss twice. Oh, and I wasn’t aiming for you.

Deadshot (Floyd Lawton)

Written by: Peter J. Tomasi
Art by: Christian Duce
Colours by: David Baron
Letters by: Rob Leigh
Cover by: Jae Lee & June Chung
Variant Cover by: Bryan Hitch & Alex Sinclair
Release Date: August 28, 2019

Bruce Wayne didn’t find himself in the best company last issue. With Deadshot hijacking Wayne’s plane and blowing a hole in it – leading to its rocky landing on a deserted island. Luckily Bruce is miraculously still alive and is recovered by two WWII castaways.

While Deadshot rounds up the surviving members of the flight and notices a certain billionaire is missing – he encounters problems with wildlife and the aforementioned survivours. Losing one of his blasters and gaining some more scratches to go with his injuries from the flight.

While catching up with the two WWII castaways, Bruce is alerted to Deadshot being near. He borrows equipment and goes off to face him – only to lose Deadshot in the process.

We also get another few pages of the ongoing Mr. Freeze story – nothing too crazy there.

While not an outstanding issue by any means – we get some minor progression on Bruce trying to stop Deadshot by any means and witty Deadshot banter with the survivours. I’m sure the next issue will hold more of that Tomasi stroy we’ve grown to love.

Duce’s art style is akin to that of some 80’s book’s I’ve read in the past and it fits perfectly here.

Detective Comics 1010 is nothing major – but well worth a read for some minor character tales and Deadshot trivia.
