MTV just announced that fan-favorite villain Deathstroke will arrive on comic book shelves this October in the new ongoing comic book series DEATHSTROKE!

The deadliest mercenary in the DC Universe, a.k.a. Slade Wilson (as seen on the CW TV series Arrow) stars in his own new monthly series written and drawn by Tony S. Daniel (SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS).

See Deathstroke as never before in this exciting new series, with one surprise after another as we see Slade Wilson in the fight of his life! He is, without question, the world’s greatest assassin and one of the most feared people on the planet—he’s been a mercenary-for-hire after his involvement in Team 7, has been recruited onto Task Force X, a.k.a The Suicide Squad—now we'll get to know more about the complex man behind the missions.

Daniel will tackle both writing and illustrating the monthly series, and will be joined on art by Sandu Florea (SUICIDE SQUAD).  Daniel told MTV, "When I write, the scenes are playing out visually for me, so it is an advantage that I enjoy and I think will come in handy in this series because it will be very explosive and action packed."

Head on over to MTV to read the rest of the interview with Daniel, and get a first look at a new DC Collectibles Deathstroke bust!
