"NEVER GO BACK," Part One (of Five)
Before Marcus can return to class he has to go on a different kind of journey. One fueled by regret, sorrow, and peyote. Only when he's faced the demons that lurk within his own soul can he hope to stand toe-to-toe with Master Lin and make good on his vow to bring an end to Kings Dominion forever.
RICK REMENDER and WES CRAIG's darkly humorous look at the 1980s underground comes full circle.

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jan 17, 2019

    This particular issue, just like the series itself, can't be praised enough. This creative team has, since issue one, continually delivered powerful content that embraces and challenges the comics medium in form and content. Read Full Review

    The result is an elegant solution to the challenges raised by releasing #36 of the comic and the first installment of the TV show on the same day, and it effectively emphasizes a lot of what makes Deadly Class one of the best books on the stands. Read Full Review

    GWW - D. Ivester Jan 16, 2019

    The art team here did such a great job creating the images that were going on inside of Marcus. It's scary, messy, depressing, and even at times, we see bits of beauty and happiness. These are all the things that go on inside of someone but for Marcus, it really is mostly filled with darkness and it's great to see him really fight through it. The way they display all the people that Marcus has become friends with is sad but done beautifully. The issue is really about self-discovery and now Marcus is more than ready to take the demons head-on. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 16, 2019

    Deadly Class #36 gets a little tropey and the ending is predictable, but the great art and some interesting character development keep it from being a waste of time. Its a good comic that suffers a little bit on the execution of the reveal from a script standpoint, but more than makes up for it in other ways. It sets the stage for a lot of action to come, though, and that makes up for a lot. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jan 15, 2019

    The art makes up for the lack of progression in what is basically a pretty recap issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Jan 15, 2019

    Deadly Class continues to be in a slump, although this time it's due to an over-long, repetitive filler issue. Hopefully the next installments will move on and learn to just say no to bad melodrama. Read Full Review
