Deadly Class #1 Review
Remender takes a very serious story about a kid who's homeless for the better part of a year, and turns it into a story featuring a school training kids to become assassins. Now you'd think that the later part would be the best part of the issue, and although this may be the case for the series future, it was the realistic nature of Marcus' time on the streets that interested me the most, with Remender making Marcus a very likeable and relatable character. Remender also added a lot of excitement to this issue as well, with the later half being very explosive.
Wes Craig's artwork was simply outstanding, with the layouts giving a lot of depth and tone to Remender's script. Craig also showed the pure essence of the story brilliantly, with his art making you feel more for Marcus, with it being clear just what he’s feeling. The best part about Craig’s artwork (besides the layouts) was the way he handled the action throughout the second half, as he managed to show the panic feeling that Marcus had whilst also showing the intense nature of the situation he was in. On top of this Lee Loughridge’s colours were also fantastic, giving the perfect overtone and finish to both the story and the art.
