When Image Comics announced that the second printing of DEADLY CLASS #3 featuring a new cover would be made free to retailers a flurry of orders ensued, with many retailers matching their initial first printing orders. The third issue is now slated for a third printing to keep up with customer demand.
Retailers have been selling issues of Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Uncanny Avengers) and Wes Craig’s breakout series DEADLY CLASS hand over fist. The popular 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.
Praise for DEADLY CLASS: “Remender and Craig leave a lot to be mined with their newest pseudo-realistic thriller. This is a read that won't disappoint.” —Meagan Damore, Comic Book Resources
“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
“Between the surprising story and the lively art, this is one class you won't want to skip.” —Michelle White, Multiversity Comics
