I picked this collection up on Kindle on a recommendation and due to a good introductory price – I very rarely stray from superhero fare.
The artwork is engaging and the panel by panel view adds a fluid quality that benefits the presentation.
The writing is surprisingly engaging as the characters are hardly endearing yet connect with the reader quickly and deeply.
The plot is fairly slim and not really indicative of the overall experience provided by reading this book, all I can say is that I feel I should not have liked this at all but I was quickly engrossed, involved, interested and yet ...repulsed.
Difficult to define or explain I can only highly recommend you give it a try.

This is begging to be made into a movie. Does a great job of depicting a moment in time, as well as getting under the skin of a brilliant motley crew of characters. Breakfast Club meets Kick Ass. More!

Picked this on recommendation by Amazon. Really glad I did. It collates issues 1 - 6. The art is absolutely fantastic, as is the colouring. and the storyline has kept me plugged in from the very first page. I also bought part two, which continues very nicely.

Set in the late 1980s Deadly Class sees teenage street urchin Marcos Lopez given the opportunity to hone his burgeoning killer instincts at King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts where the world’s deadliest crime syndicates send their new generation of killers to be schooled in all things assassin.

At first I wasn’t overly impressed as things seemed to click into place a little too neatly to allow the story to progress and the actions of some of the main characters, even allowing for the subject matter, seemed clichéd and over the top.

However reading on (and delving a bit more into the past) you begin to understand why certain things happened and why certain characters did certain things leading to a highly enjoyable read.

The final third of the book, a road trip to Vegas, is some of the cleverest and funniest writing I have experienced for some time.

Whilst the writing is very good and times great it is the fantastic, almost surreal artwork and colouring that boosts this book into the graphic novel stratosphere. Whilst some graphic novels go overboard on the colour and the detail the stripped back illustrations offer an exhilarating and emotional ride through the lives of the young assassins.

All in all this is one of the best new titles I have read this year and I highly recommended it.

A graphic novel that deals with depression, loneliness, feeling like an outcast. Powerful concept, I feel we as the reader really get inside Marcus's head and learn to understand him, almost like we know him. Oh yeah and there is also an assassin school, lol. Image have another winner

Really didn't enjoy Remender's other book, 'Black Science' which felt cliched and overly familiar, this is much, much better. Although teen assassins are not all that unusual in comic books, this feels quite fresh and it's also good to see a teen comic which does not shy away from actual teen activities like casual drug use. some of the peripheral characters do seem a bit one dimensional, and the school cliques seem a bit unnecessary, but it is still well worth a look

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 July 2016
Format: Paperback
A paperback which collects the first six issues of the comic 'Deadly Class.'

It's 1987 in America. Marcus is a homeless teenager. With seemingly nothing to live for. Until he is offered the chance to join a very exclusive high school. A school for killers. Where the world's top crime families send their children to be trained as assassins.

All the usual high school tropes and cliques and problems await him. With the added one that they are really deadly. But why is Marcus, an outsider and not someone from a crime family, considered such an ideal candidate to be a pupil?.......

This features violence strong language and adult moments. A lot of them. So it's strictly a comic for mature readers only.

As with all paperbacks of this kind, it divides the six issues up via chapter pages, so you can see where one ends and another begins.

There's an introduction from comics writer David Lapham. And an afterword from the writer of this series himself.

This is a fabulous read right from the off. The art is stylistic, but it and the restrained colouring do suits the needs of the story perfectly, so it does catch the eye. It's also a wholly original story, which always counts in something's favour. The eighties setting is superbly rendered. It has a lead character who the writing makes wholly sympathetic. When it would be very easy for him not to be. And he's surrounded by a very interesting cast of characters as well.

Marcus has a strong character arc over the course of these six issues, which does reach a satisfactory point by the end. There are decent plot developments as things about him and the school become clear. It also does offer the reader food for thought, as you consider what you might do in similar situations to things characters go through here.

An excellent read and a terrific start to the series. I will get book two as soon as possible.
