    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Jan 27, 2016

    There are a few books on the stands right now with creative teams that are in lock-step. Deadly Class is the longest tenured of these books, and the most complete package, which is especially impressive given a change in colorists on a title where color really is pulling a third of the weight.

    DEADLY CLASS remains at the top of my list of favorite comics. Each time a new issue is released, it's among the first I'll dive into. Rick Remender and Wes Craig are giving us the perfect blend in storytelling with plenty of action, character development, drama, and tragedy. If you haven't been reading this title, you really need to fix that. Go back and pick up the trades. Get caught up. I just love this book so dang much. I can't get enough of it. Read Full Review

    Remender really has his best book here. His other books are great too (Tokyo Ghost, Black Science), but this book's unique way of showing how kids deal with loss, school, and growing up really sets it apart from the other books. Craig and Boyd's art really doesn't look like anything else on the stands today and that's a good thing. Deadly Class #18 is a great second part to an already fantastic arc. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 27, 2016

    Deadly Class #18 is one of the series' best issues to date. The amount of the character development and growth was fantastic and very compelling. The personal stories and small fights are really elevating the comic as a whole, even if the main character and some parts of the writing could use some work. Hopefully this is a sign of good, but nasty things to come for this series in the future. Read Full Review

    It's the second chapter of the current story arc DIE FOR ME. After the beginning of the carnage in last issue, this episode is consecrated to two major characters, Willie and Shabnam. Shabnam, the rotund kid who seemed pretty innocent when first introduced has certainly proved to be a devil incarnate throughout the last few issues, and he still holds all the aces, as he confirms his control over others by breaking Kendal, bringing him to heel and forcing his hand to do something unthinkable. Comparisons are drawn between Piggy and Shabnam, which comes as no surprise as Rick Remender has never hidden to us his liking of THE LORD OF THE FLIES. We get to know more about the truth behind Willie's first slaying, as he tells Saya what really occurred while hiding in the library from his own gang, ready to spill blood under Shabnam's leadership. Wes Craig draws some magnificent poses of Saya, fit enough for her to be addressed as the Goddess of war or .... Punisher? No, I'm kidding, but check out her t-shirt and you'll know what I'm talking about. At the end of the book, the author tells us how the villains are going to take control in the coming issues, and boy, we got that already.
