Staff Reviews

This story is a piece of art. The plot is just an beautifully done story of a teenager named Marcus whose parents were killed and he blames Ronald Reagan. He gets tangled up with something he shouldn't and finds himself in a school of assassins. Soon enough he finds himself a group of miscreants. The kids who are too cool for school… even when the school is teaching them to kill people. Marcus is the character who learn to love, even as he makes all the wrong decisions you still are rooting for him, hoping he can sort it all out. This story is the perfect example of how Rick Remender can just make a story that grabs you and drags you in.

— From Alex M.


"Deadly Class is a solid read for those who want a combination of Mark Millar's Wanted and Harry Potter with Garth Ennis's (Preacher) style." - Library Journal (Starred)

"A good start to a wicked series." -- Booklist

It's 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can't focus in class. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin's top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he's failing is "Dismemberment 101," and his crush has a double-digit body count. Welcome to the most brutal high school on earth, where the world's top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At Kings Dominion School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn't always metaphorical.

Collecting the first arc of the most critically acclaimed new series of 2014, by writer Rick Remender (Black Science, Fear Agent) and rising star artist Wesley Craig (Batman).
