    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Feb 16, 2015

    Honestly, this comic is perfect on every level. These guys deserve awards, readers, praise, etc. We're eleven issue in and they have given us gold every time. There is a two month hiatus as Deadly Class takes a break until April, and Remender makes sure to leave you on quite the cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    GWW - Casey Walsh Feb 16, 2015

    Deadly Class #11 is everything I could ever want in a finale. Remender delivers the action and emotional resolution we have been patiently awaiting sense Marcus first walked into Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts and once again proves he is the king of the "slow burn." If Remender's story wasn't good enough Craig and Loughride's art makes this fantastic finale a feast for the eyes. Deadly Class #11 is the perfect ending to what has been an emotional, horrific and very high school journey for Marcus; I can't wait for what's next. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jose R. Feb 17, 2015

    This issue has everything; it was funny, violent, dramatic, shocking, and all-around crazy. The next two months are going to be tortuous. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Feb 18, 2015

    What a wild ride Deadly Classhas been so far, and I can't wait to see what's next. What this creative team is doing with this series is mind blowing. I can understand the violence not being everyone's cup of tea, and that's okay. What I feel after finishing an issue of this seriesis an almost overwhelming feeling that I had just read the latest issue of the best comic book on the racks. There are a lot of great comic books being published today, but none are better than Deadly Class. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Feb 19, 2015

    Each issue of Deadly Class has been an incredible stand-alone read while still continuing the series' overarching plot. This creative team has really come up with something special when it comes to Deadly Class. This series has been an intense and violent ride while still being a touching coming of age story. This issue was a great reminder as to why readers enjoy this series so much. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Feb 21, 2015

    Speaking of violence, Wes Craigs fight scenes are incredibly well done. The past few issues were light on the action, but Deadly Class #11 throws everything out at us. Craigs choreography and panel composition is some of the most inventive work in comics. He never lets the fighting dominate the page, always giving equal time to his characters expressions and reactions to the violence around them. Deadly Class #11 ends on a cliffhanger, and Im desperate to find out how it resolves when the series comes back in April. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Connor McGuckin Feb 20, 2015

    As this is the end of the second arc, there will be a two month hiatus until Deadly Class #12. You know what that means? If you're not already reading this comic, you now have time to buy the previous issues and catch up. YAY! Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Feb 15, 2015

    This is an incredible issue in an incredible series. Most issues that wrap up arcs tend to fall short of reader expectations and end up disappointing, but Remender manages to avoid this. This is one of the most eventful issues so far, and it's bound to stick with the reader for awhile. It's funny, thought-provoking, and explosive. It's full of moments that show just how great comic books can be. "Deadly Class" won't be back until April, and that is definitely disappointing, but at least it's going on this short break on a high note. Read Full Review

    Flip Geeks - Paul Ramos Mar 15, 2015

    There are some coloring inconsistencies, particularly on Saya's neck. Profanities imaginable are totally littered, including racist slants/terms. But once more, this one goes with a big finish and another pulsating cliffhanger to expect. However, classes begin again in two months time. DAMN! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Matt Petras Feb 18, 2015

    Deadly Class #11 is filled with loads of shock and sleaze that entertain a simpler part of the human psyche, but that aspect is immensely impressive because of the intricate and careful execution. Thought-provoking and harsh words are caked in these light and nutty pictures. Rick Remender and Wes Craig didnt forget the beating heart of this series, that being the fascinating characters. Each issue makes me care more and more about these infinitely complex little deviants. Read Full Review

    Nothing groundbreaking but nothing wrong either. A fitting conclusion. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Justin Micallef Feb 23, 2015

    This is due to the realism that Rick Remender's scripts bring to the table brought to life by Wes Craig's pencils. While violence is a big part of this issue (and the book as a whole), it never feels gratuitous and each punch, stab, and slice has meaning and impact behind it, both in the script and the art. One thing that has been a staple of this series thus far has been Wes Craig's interesting panel layouts and while they are always welcome for they bring a vivaciousness to every page, they remained distracting and hard to follow when the action became too chaotic. Another thing that may take a prospective reader out of this book lies in the unlikeability of many of the main characters. Remender portrays each character as realistic as possible, warts and all, but at times they can feel hard to root for, especially as they stab a myriad of rednecks (and each other) in the back.

    Newsarama - Kat Vendetti Feb 18, 2015

    Marcus' resolution with Chester is deliciously bittersweet, delivering the kind of payoff that subverts one's usual expectations but is appropriate for the tension Remender had established for this arc, and we're left feeling unsettled in this brutal and unforgiving conclusion. As Remender wraps up Deadly Class' second arc and all its threads, he leaves us with the question of whether Marcus and his gang truly won in the end. Though the body count may be in their favor, the resolution begs to differ, and there's little time to ruminate on it before the consequences drive right into the next arc. It's satisfyingly discomforting, in the best way. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Feb 21, 2015

    Deadly Class is an enjoyable read. The characters all have a way of shunning perfection. The characters display their flaws often and they become part of the storyline. While this issue may seem like a revenge story or tying up loose ends story, it really is a drama that is the result of a love triangle. The comic book has plenty of action and wonderful visuals to round out the reading experience. This is definitely something to pick up. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Feb 17, 2015

    All in all, however, this is a very strong entry for the series. As it closes its second arc, I think there's a strong immediate future ahead for Deadly Class. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Feb 18, 2015

    Deadly Class has continued to be a series that I enjoy quite a bit as I grew up in this era and it resonates with me on that level. I have not been blown away by every issue. But more so than not, Remender and Craig bring the pyrotechnics when they need to and have crafted an interesting tale filled with mystery, murder, awkwardness, and deep inner perspective that allows you to recognize that just because you may look like a bad ass, that actually, you are not. You are just like the rest of us, doubting our abilities and questioning our moves after they are done. It is a very realistic perspective from a very fantastical tale. Issue #11 does not break any new ground (only faces), but it certainly doesn't lose any either. It is a strong issue that is on par for a continued good run. Read Full Review
