deadly class trailer

It would be easy to describe Deadly Class as “Harry Potter with assassins,” but that’s just scratching the surface. Sure, this is a series set at a secret academy that trains teenagers how to be expert killers, but the comparisons really end there. If Syfy’s upcoming television adaptation of the Image Comics series by writer Rick Remender and artist Wes Craig is anything like the source material, it will be the kind of entertainment that leaves you a bit bruised and beaten and wanting more.

And you can watch a new trailer for the series right now.

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.
