Paging Dr. Villain; Dr. A. Villain. The latest issue of Deathstroke from DC Comics kicks off with a pun in the offices of Joseph Wilson, aka Slade Wilson's son Jericho, aka the new Ikon.

But while Slade is offscreen for the initial pages, he won't be gone for long. In the new issue, dropping next Wednesday, Dec. 28, the two-part story "Four Days" kicks off. Published by DC Comics -- and written by Christopher Priest, with art and cover by Cary Nord and variant cover by Shane Davis -- Issue 9 involves a trip down memory lane for Deathstroke. 

Check out an exclusive preview from the issue below, and pick it up next Wednesday if you want to see what happens next. 

The official word:

“Four Days” part one! After Deathstroke’s family is shattered, Slade recalls the first time he and Wintergreen worked together—on a mission that changed both of their lives forever. Special guest artist Cary Nord illustrates this game-changing two-part adventure.
