It appears that one series will no longer be a part of the DC Universe moving forward, being that Deathstroke Inc. releases its final issue on Tuesday. Capping at 15 issues total, the ongoing series launched back in Sep. 2021 with writer Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter attached as the title’s creative team. Following the series’ involvement in the Shadow War crossover event, Deathstroke Inc. #10 passed the reins to writer Ed Brisson and artist Dexter Soy to show the early years of Slade Wilson through “Deathstroke: Year One,” an arc that wraps with the upcoming Deathstroke Inc. #15.

As for DC’s other releases out this week, the penultimate issues for Batman: Fortress, DC vs. Vampires, Young Justice: Targets and the “Kal-El Returns” crossover are all going on sale. The full list of releases can be found alphabetically below, covers and solicitations included.
