Deadly Class #1 (Deadly Class #1) by Rick Remender (Writer), Wes Craig (Illustrator), Lee Loughridge (Colorist), Rus Wooton (Goodreads Author) (Letterer), Sebastian Girner (Editor)
Review: For a starting point of a series, it was just okay. It was a little confusing, as to why the Murder school wanted him, and we don’t see the crazy/killer they see in him. Also, not sure why cops were after him. And, didn’t have any other family? Or foster home? I think I would read more of this series just to find out some more answers.
Favorite quote: NA
Would I? Reread? I don’t think so. Read more of this series? I might. Recommend to others? Maybe.

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.
