Rick Remender and Wes Craig’s DEADLY CLASS Sells Out Instantly
Posted on January 23, 2014 by Kat Salazar
Fans of Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Uncanny Avengers) and Wes Craig are clamoring to snap up the last of DEADLY CLASS #1, which has sold out instantly and is already being declared a hit by readers and critics alike.
The hotly anticipated new series follows a group of teens in 1980s San Francisco who are training to be assassins in the most brutal high school on Earth. Here, the world’s top crime families send the next generation of killers to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At Kings Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates' poison.
Early praise for DEADLY CLASS:
“First issues, much like pilot episodes, are riddled with obstacles for creative teams to overcome. Deadly Class jumps every hurdle, and clocking in at 36 pages, is a lengthy introduction to what promises to be an brilliant and engaging story.”
—Lindsey Morris, Newsarama
“Deadly Class is one kick ass comic book. Amazing art, lettering, coloring and story. This is the whole package, folks.”
—Benjamin Bailey, IGN
“We've been waiting for Rick Remender and Wes Craig's DEADLY CLASS for months and it was absolutely worth the wait... We're almost getting spoiled here with the story and art. Don't miss out on this new series. You'll definitely regret it if you do.”
—Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine
“It's not often that you see an action sequence commandeer a book for 11 pages (out of 36)... and the reader is left thrilled and off-balance in the best possible way.”
—Jason Tabrys, Den of Geek!
DEADLY CLASS #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
