“This isn‘t a dress rehearsal, Marcus. You only get the one turn. Life is a series of unique opportunities.

It‘s our job to find the happiness in each one.”

Graphic novels be spitting straight fire and truth. 🔥🔥🔥 this quote really resonated with me and I‘m only just a few pages in!

I like big books and small dogs and this comparison brings me great joy.
I went browsing the library last night and went down a section of manga/graphic novels/comics that I don‘t normally explore and found this honkin‘ huge graphic novel collection! I‘ve not read Deadly Class before but the art and storyline drew me in immediately!

I really wanted to love this book because it had such a great premise (misfit teenagers attend a school for assassins in the 80s) and really cool artwork (the neon pinks and high contrast reflects an art pop 80s aesthetic) but the story and characters fell flat. I also could not get over the extreme drug usage and sexual situations that supposedly freshman aged characters engage in. Those things wouldn‘t bother me in adult characters though.

Saknicole Did you watch the rest of the show? I really want to after watching those first two episodes. 6mo
Kimberlone @Saknicole no I‘ve only seen those episodes we watched together but I think the show is probably better than the graphic novel. I will definitely keep watching once it‘s on a streaming option. Did you see outlander is on Netflix now?! 6mo
Saknicole Yesss! Outlander for life! But only the first two seasons 😣 The whole season of Deadly Class is available on SyFy online yo. If I had the internet's I'd be on it already 6mo
Kimberlone @Saknicole good info I‘ll have to check when Jake goes back to the slope 6mo

Fun and disturbing. Just what a good graphic novel should be! Love that it takes place in the 80‘s! Can‘t wait to read the rest! Thanks @TracyReadsBooks 🥰😘

TracyReadsBooks So glad you liked it! You definitely need to check out the tv show—it‘s also really good. And I see the new Charlie Jane Anders book hanging out below Deadly Class. Another great read that gives you lots to think about! 9mo

My first Christmas gift card haul came in! 🤘

I've read the first 3 trades of Deadly Class digitally before, but with the tv show starting up in January, I have wanted to read more! I figured it was time to pull the trigger on these deluxe oversized hardcovers. ❤️

I'm a pretty big Remender fan and I'm stoked to read more of this series! I'm also crazy excited for the tv show! 🤗

Karkar Tv show??? Going to have to watch for that! 11mo

I binged the second and third volumes of Deadly Class last night, thanks to the Hoopla app. My reactions to the two volumes were polar. Loved volume two. Felt like it took everything that was setup in volume one and blew it up. Volume three, however, felt like the series was just treading water. My main gripe still stands. I want to see daily life in this school, and that‘s pretty much ignored. #graphicnovel

I‘ll confess that this graphic novel just barely makes the cut as a pick for me. The artwork works so well, and the colorist deserves a lot of credit, too (the editor‘s letter at the beginning praises him, and rightly so). Story wise, I‘m not sure how much I buy into the setting. It‘s like Hogwarts but nothing supernatural and next-to-no development in this first volume (six issues). I hope volume two will explore the school more. #graphicnovel

BillBlume Side note: the main character Marcus is a freshman in high school in the fall of 1987, which was also when I started high school. I get a kick out of that. 11mo

Hahahaha. Wow. I mean, I don‘t know what you say about a group of kids at a school for assassins...a group of kids who decide to road trip... and groups of kids who are always mixed up in something...looking for revenge, looking for a good party, looking to cause trouble. As always with an ongoing series, I don‘t want to say too much but the story is entertaining & there are definitely some people who should be looking over their shoulders!

I wasn't head over heels for this comic-- it started slow and got more interesting as it went along but I just never fell in love-- but I'm excited to see what the TV adaptation is like.

In the 1980's, Marcus Lopez dreams of killing Ronald Reagan. He has been recruited into a school for assassins and his classmates are not only the horrible kids of your high school memories but also trained killers. Any levity is smothered by brooding teenage angst and the deadly seriousness of the school's dark arts. While the story and premise are interesting, it does not quite gel (at least at this point as it is the start of a series).

So I'm a little older than the kids in this story - but I still like the '80's setting. I've finished volume 2 and am still deciding how much I like it. Rick Remender has a tendency to go for the easy tropes, but there are great bits like this scene.

Ohh, definitely the best yet & probably my favorite volume so far. It‘s sophomore year & the King‘s Dominion School of the Deadly Arts is welcoming a new freshmen class. The Student Council led, mostly, by Shabnam runs the school, Saya has a new freshman to mentor—which she must do by staying one step ahead of her past...not easy. There‘s lots of murder & mayhem & good times. The art is good but it‘s the color & layout which really stand out.

RJHowe Appreciate the graphic novel reviews. 2y

Oh man, Marcus is NOT having a good day—year, really. See, it‘s the end of freshman year & time for finals but finals at Kings Dominion Atelier of the Deadly Arts aren‘t like those at other schools. Nope, this is a school for assassins. You only pass if you stay alive & make sure others do not. Marcus has a plan, though, & if he can stay alive, things might just get better. Easy enough, right? He just needs to stay alive...Definitely reading more!

I fear the Imperial Radch series has spoiled my next read...it was so good, I just don‘t think I‘m ready to pick up another novel. So, shifting gears and going with the tagged comic to give my brain, and all the thoughts and all the feels, some time to settle.

This cover is so cool!!! More importantly, I‘m almost done spamming everyone with my kicked-into-overdrive Free Comic Book Day crazed comic reading fest. This second volume of Deadly Class features a whole lot of angst in the midst of the student assassins getting ready to take on another group of killers all while trying to hide the truth of what happened to one of their members in Vol. 1. So yeah, lots going on in this dark, entertaining read.

Let‘s start with the obvious—this cover is way cool. Really like it and what‘s on the pages inside. Marcus is living on the streets, a kid with a past—the type of past that gets him admitted to Kings Dominion Atelier of the Deadly Arts, a high school where teens train to be assassins. And go. The artwork is good, though not my favorite, the story is compelling, the characters, Marcus especially, interesting & I definitely want to keep reading.

The worst thing about finishing a book/series as immersive & emotional as Y The Last Man (& yes, as promised, I got teary) is settling on what to read next. The real reason is I don‘t want to shortchange whatever comes AFTER. My fear is always that I won‘t or can‘t give the “after” book the attention it deserves. All of which is to say, I‘m going with another graphic novel. This one is about teen assassins. Another Chicago Comics recommendation.

Today I started the #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon with @TricksyTails and @Clwojick . I‘m new to graphic novels but am excited to dive further into reading them. My library only allows 4 credits per month on Hoopla and the library itself and Overdrive have very few choices so I signed up for a free trial with Comixology so that I would have more choices. So here is my #TBR (so far). I‘m excited to get started!! #LetMeSeeYourStack

TricksyTails 🙌👏😆 Woohoo! Your stack is awesome!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ So excited for you to dive in and join us! 2y

Borrowed this from Hoopla last night. I'm tired and not feeling superb so my brain isn't feeling like putting the words together to properly sum up my thoughts. We'll just go with the facts then. Deadly Class is dark and violent, but there's something about it that makes me want to read more.

BillBlume I think you summed up my reaction, too. There‘s enough of truth to the characters that I want to see more. 11mo

This one had a lot of promise from the summary. A school for assassins! Sounded really fun. And it was at the start. But it ended up being a lot more racially charged then I was expecting? And a lot more about drugs?

Definitely not my favorite. Surprisingly, the school for teenage assassins thing is starting to feel kind of overdone to me. I found the art unexceptional, but inoffensive and pretty easy to follow.
