Critically acclaimed bestseller DEADLY CLASS returns in the apathy of the slacker era. Join MARCUS in 1991 where he lives in a bathtub, delivers pizza, and hides from the bite of reality.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Deadly Class #45 is a welcome return. The book had major ups and downs, but this new direction feels right. This is a great comic, one that sets up many interesting plot points, ones that will be fun to watch Remender explore. Craig’s art has a lot of problems that it had before, but Loughridge’s colors do a lot to smooth things out, and the fight scene looks good. Where this book is going is anyone’s guess, but this is a good start.

    Sequential Planet

    Deadly Class #45 is a quiet yet strong return for the series. There are a lot of changes here, and the new status quo is bound to bring some more exciting moments for Marcus and his surrounding cast.

    Wes Craig delivers moody and evocative art in the first issue in a long while that has felt like a genuine chance for the readers to catch their breath and take stock of where Marcus has found himself. Remender deftly handles the psychological stuff, but allows for the stupid mistakes that young people are wont to make when hormones get involved. Lee Loughridge and Rus Wooton deserve special notice this issue, because they had to wind through this dark and sometimes distorted world with Marcus and the audience, and their colors and letters, respectively, helped sell the mood of a page.

    Graphic Policy

    Although Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge continue to bring the stylish visuals that drew me to Deadly Class way back in 2014, Deadly Class #45 is basically mansplaining the comic and squanders its new setting and status quo. It’s definitely not a good jumping on point and made me realize I’m only following the title because of sunk cost fallacy.
