    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jan 7, 2015

    DEADLY CLASS remains one of my favorite new series. We have an interesting cast of characters and the mix between 80s teenage drama with aspects of training to be an assassin keeps readers on their toes. Rick Remender has created a remarkable world and Wes Craigs art with Lee Loughridges colors are top notch. I have to assume youre reading this book already. If youre not reading DEADLY CLASS, you really need to fix that. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Jan 10, 2015

    Remender, Craig, and Loughridge are turning out one of the best comics currently being published (I say THE best). It's rare to see an entire creative team continually make brave, bold, daring choices and have them continue to payoff time after time. By now you know ifDeadly Classis a book for you. If it's not your cup of tea that's understandable, but for the rest of us we are truly witnessing something special. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Justin Micallef Jan 8, 2015

    One thing that struck me in this issue was Wes Craig's incredible panel work. Craig's panels move freely throughout the pages of this issue, never settling on any one structure or set-up, they service the story in the way that they see fit and the book is only better for it. Be it gross diversions, intense actions, or quiet conversations, Craig's pencils fit this story in whatever way they are asked to. Lee Loughridge's colors are the unsung hero in this book, however. The color palette changes based to serve the story and while it remains hard to describe via words without intense spoilers, a particular scene involving a toilet shows Loughridge's adaptable, incredible, color work. He chooses to wash an entire scene with color based on the mood present and again, it works perfectly. Read Full Review

  • 9.0 - Chase Magnett Jan 5, 2015

    Unlike the awful climax that occurs in the comic store, its unnecessary and unfair to delve into the final pages of the second half of Deadly Class #10. Remender and Craig have been building to this confrontation since the first issue of the series and leave a perfect cliffhanger for readers. Deadly Class #10 is the mounting storm, tearing into both the daylight and darkness of Marcus life, building to this climax. Whatever comes next, only two things are certain: it will be messy and it will be must-read comics. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Matt Petras Jan 12, 2015

    And Rick Remender sure can write. He doesn't pull any punches, with loads of horrid language and striking violence. Deadly Class #10 is a train-wreck, but it's so masterfully and concisely crafted that it's impossible not to appreciate. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Jan 12, 2015

    I can't recommend this series enough. This arc has been exceptional all the way through, with fantastic character moments and a brutal antagonist to go along with it. Rick Remender is building something that is nothing short of exciting. The fantastic art by Wes Craig makes every issue gorgeous and never disappoints. All of these pieces make this book a must-read every month, and this month is no different. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 7, 2015

    Now ten issues in, it's safe to say there's no book quite like Deadly Class. Rick Remender's latest is a hodge-podge of crazy situations and themes, each one messier and more destructive than the last. It's as if he's taken teenage angst, ratcheted it up to 11, and given it a machine gun. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Paul Campbell Jan 11, 2015

    A great penultimate issue in the second arc which manages to balance the two sides of Deadly Class quite well and only rarely throws away its bipolar meds. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jan 6, 2015

    All in all, this is a good issue for the series. Deadly Class #10 opens up well and ends on a decent enough cliffhanger " what more does it need to do? Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jan 11, 2015

    Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge have their chance to cut loose after a few quieter issues, and they seize the opportunity with gusto. The page layouts are exciting, effortlessly guiding you through the chaos. Deadly Class #10 sets the stage for the arc's bloody final chapter. Marcus and Saya mightreap what they sow.

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 7, 2015

    In the latter portion of this issue, the crew from the boarding school set out to carry out their assault on the residence belonging to Marcus long time rival. A retaliation set in motion back in Las Vegas, the sequence is presented in an Oceans Eleven like sequence as Craig and Remender blend the blueprints and planning with the actual event. But acting on emotion leaves a person vulnerable, and the tactical invasion does not go quite as planned. As several storylines come crashing together, bullets flying about, the book maybe gives the perfect rationalization of just why Remender has Marcus choose to retaliate the way he did at the comic shop. It may be juvenile, and it may be overt, but thats exactly the spirit of the series. Marcus is a teenager, impulsive and headstrong, and in no way subtle. Maybe its perfect that the metaphor is as well, leaving the teen literally drenchedin his own mess as elements of his past and present choices all come to a head. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jan 8, 2015

    But hey, with the ending here, I was able to put aside that first bit and focus back on the big picture which promises to pack a pretty heavy (and possibly, deadly) punch for our gang. Read Full Review
