"SAVE YOUR GENERATION," Part One-Critically acclaimed bestseller DEADLY CLASS returns in the apathy of the slacker era. Join MARCUS in 1991 where he lives in a bathtub, delivers pizza, and hides from the bite of reality. Haunted by his past and unable to change his ways, he self-medicates with drugs, sex, and music snobbery. But his past is never too far behind him.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 29, 2021

    Deadly Class #45 is a welcome return. The book had major ups and downs, but this new direction feels right. This is a great comic, one that sets up many interesting plot points, ones that will be fun to watch Remender explore. Craig's art has a lot of problems that it had before, but Loughridge's colors do a lot to smooth things out, and the fight scene looks good. Where this book is going is anyone's guess, but this is a good start. Read Full Review

    Deadly Class#45 is a quiet yet strong return for the series. There are a lot of changes here, and the new status quo is bound to bring some more exciting moments for Marcus and his surrounding cast. Read Full Review

    Lee Loughridge and Rus Wooton deserve special notice this issue, because they had to wind through this dark and sometimes distorted world with Marcus and the audience, and their colors and letters, respectively, helped sell the mood of a page. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 28, 2021

    Although Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge continue to bring the stylish visuals that drew me to Deadly Class way back in 2014, Deadly Class #45 is basically mansplaining the comic and squanders its new setting and status quo. It's definitely not a good jumping on point and made me realize I'm only following the title because of sunk cost fallacy. Read Full Review
