EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Prepare to Enter Arkham Asylum in Deathstroke #36

Slade Wilson is trapped in the most dangerous place in the world in our preview of this week's Deathstroke #36.

Writer Christopher Priest and artist Ed Benes team up to bring DC Comics' resident one-eyed assassin to Gotham City's notorious Arkham Asylum, where the merciless merc has been locked up after being declared criminally insane.
