San Francisco, 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 this is the world of DEADLY CLASS, the graphic novel series by Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Uncanny Avengers, Captain America) and Wes Craig (Batman). Here, in King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin's top enforcer, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class Marcus is 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. In DEADLY CLASS, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates' poison.
DEADLY CLASS, VOLUME 1: REAGAN YOUTH will be in comic book stores on July 16 and in bookstores on July 29 and is specially priced at only $9.99.
