    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jun 25, 2014

    Deadly Class has been one of my favorite titles for the new year. And after reading this first arc, Remender and Craig appear to show no signs of slowing in this rip roaring wild ride of a comic. September can't come quickly enough for me. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 25, 2014

    DEADLY CLASS is a crazy and intense series. Rick Remender is clearly not holding back in the scenes he comes up with for the characters. This issue marks the end of the first story arc and it almost feels like theres no end to the violence and mayhem. Wes Craigs art and layouts are extraordinary. Combined with Lee Loughridges colors, DEADLY CLASS is a great comic to read and look at. Youll find yourself having to stop to take in all the details. This comic is not for the feint of heart. Each issue gets me more excited for the next. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Alex Smith Jun 26, 2014

    Indeed,Deadly Classreaches its greatest heights just as it takes a break between arcs. If issue six is any indication of what this series has planned in September and beyond, expect it to stick around in the back recesses of the mind as the heat rises and the “next big thing” makes its way into comic shops (including Remender's own aquatic adventureLow). “Deadly Class #6″ will hopefully be topped someday, butnot for the time being. It can't be said enough that the imaginative realism in these pages hits every high note. If you're interested in seeing creators and narrative better than anything out there, this is the place to be. Perfect scores are only deserved on rare occasions, but this is a rare book. Buried deep in the consciousness of a remarkable period of time and essence, stories this good only come around a few times in a generation. Unmissable and Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Jun 30, 2014

    Wes Craig might just be my new favorite artist, with interesting camera angles (the high overhead shots really do it for me) and crisp figure work that stays so sharply on model. It'd be easy to get lost in the satisfying action and violence, but those things are empty gestures without some emotional core to hold onto. We get that emotion in the final sequences of the issue, the narrative centering on five characters with a solemn bit of introspection that weaves in what I assume are autobiographical elements from the writer. This was a fantastic conclusion to the first arc, some real artistry on display, and I'm highly recommending it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jun 26, 2014

    Once again, Remender is able to perfectly capture core human emotions and associations. The final two pages evoke a very specific sensation and make for an excellent send off. The group is now bonded, and it looks like they'll need that for what lies ahead. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 25, 2014

    Deadly Class #6 is comic booking at its finest, a true marriage between writer and artist that fully stakes its claim as one of the best books on the rack. The wait till September will be a brutal one. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jun 26, 2014

    Wes Craigs trippy imagery and inventive compositions come down with Marcuss trip. The simpler pages are more effective in capturing the brutality of this story, which has some dark implications. Together, Craig and Remender deliver a great finish to the first arc of one of Images top books. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Roderick Ruth Jun 28, 2014

    As much as Deadly Class is an homage to the time period of the 1980′s, it's also a surreal dedication to adolescence and the growing pains of emerging into adulthood when you have been spawned from the outskirts of what's normal. Deadly Class is the comic book equivalent of sunglasses, a black leather jacket, and a switch blade: bad ass, cool as f***, and dangerous. This issue delivered a more than satisfying end to it's first arc, and has yet to lose steam. By the last panel, you realize that Deadly Class #6 has broken out of orbit and is officially on it's own course. Needless to say, I am undoubtedly there with front row seats salivating for what's next. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jun 30, 2014

    Remender, Craig, and Loughridge wrap up the first story arc with issue #6, and Remender writes the hell out of the conclusion of the book, ending with lines that are at once heartbreaking and hopeful. The last sentence (which I won't spoil because it's really earned in this issue) is paired beautifully by the last page of art, which takes a bird's eye view and distorts it to make the Deadly Class group look like they are driving downwards, towards hell " though as a group. The series is taking a break until September, but if you have not been following it, the first arc will soon be released as a trade and it's really worth reading. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jun 24, 2014

    Remender has delivered a story that is not only funny and fun to read, but it also packs a strong message about one person's journey to findwhat they're made of. Showing that running from your past can be far more damaging than facing the facts, Deadly class is a smart story as well as an enjoyable one. The first three pages are some of the most exciting pages to look at and read. A huge hole is left while this series is on break and I'm already looking forward to issue #7. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 25, 2014

    Deadly Class #6 is exactly what it sets out to be and just a bit more. In other words it ends this arc while offering just enough substance to make the whole yarn an easy release to grade. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Julestrue Jul 1, 2014

    Once again if you haven't touched this title yet I ask, what is your problem?! This title is awesome. Wes Craig and Rick Remender have just created the kind of story that is gritty, funny, and entertaining. Every issue seems to somehow outdo the issue prior. I've been thoroughly enjoying this title. I'm a lil upset that the next issue won't drop till September which gives you plenty of time to catch up on this wonderful title! Read Full Review
