    It’s 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. He has no money. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can't focus in class, thanks to his mind constantly drifting to the stunning girl in the front row and the Dag Nasty show he has tickets to. 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, a member of the most notorious crime syndicate in Japan, 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 King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates' poison.

    Join writer RICK REMENDER with rising star WESLEY CRAIG (Batman) and legendary colorist LEE LOUGHRIDGE (Fear Agent) to reminisce about the mid-1980s underground through the eyes of the most damaged and dangerous teenagers on Earth.

Remender also added a lot of excitement...

    A promising beginning with alot of character 0

    The story follows Marcus Lopez as he is living on the streets. He struggles with all the things that come with this life. That is until he meets a mysterious woman who takes him to a new life that he could have. A life as an assassin. This seems like it could have some potential and I cant wait to see where it goes next. Marcus Lopez seems like a fairly relatable hero that you could root for and feel for him. The art is very moody and dark and really works well for the series. This comic is set ...
