    Overall, this book is AMAZING. Craig’s artwork just brings everything together, even when Marcus’ faux ghost rises up to the “normal” world, and he [doesn’t] live(s) among the people he sees every day. Remender’s writing is so natural and fluid that it’s almost eerie, how well he knows what these teenage kids would say, in any given situation. It’s just so amazing and you have to pick it up or else we can’t be friends, bye. Read Full Review

    Over the course of the issue Marcus' spiral continues ever downward, Remender giving each angst-filled musing and aggressive lash a dramatic but relatable weight. Its heady stuff, especially so given the writer's full on commitment to his lead's self destructive nature. Read Full Review

    There is a raw energy to the entire issue. Marcus spirit leaves him at one point, floating up to the street as he recognizes his distance from both the world around him and the world above him. Later, the boy dreams of a picture from his childhood home, as he remembers days with his father. In each sequence, from the beginning of the issue, through its final moments, the creative team has taken the time to reflect on where the lead character has found himself after the series of events of the last arc. The book has been on a speeding train; now that it has found a bit of calm, the demons have crept back into Marcus head. This is an issue that spends much of its time in the mind of this broken teen. Its heavy and truthful and filled with emotion. Despite being a change of pace from the past string of issues, the craft and quality by Remender, Craig and Loughridge are no less impeccable. Deadly Class #14 is as strong an issue as any that have come in the series so far. Read Full Review

    The good things about hangovers is that they eventually do end. You do eventually feel better. I am certain that Marcus' emotional "Hangover" will end too. And when it does, I think bad things may be in store for whoever catches his attention. Read Full Review
