I always hesitate just a little bit when I open a new issue of writer Rick Remender and artist Wes Craig‘s Deadly Class. Not because I don’t want to read it (it’s one of the best comics on the stands at the moment), but because it so emotionally and viscerally harrowing that I have to steel myself. I mean it as a compliment when I say that this series leaves me drained and exhausted and glad that new chapters only arrive once a month.
And now, this ongoing story of ’80s high school angst set in a secret academy that trains young people how to be deadly assassins is being made into a television show.
