Deadly Class, Vol. 1: Reagan Youth by Wesley Craig, Rick Remender & Lee Loughridge

Deadly Class Volume 1: Reagan Youth TP - Wesley Craig, Rick Remender, Lee Loughridge

I liked the concept of an assassin's school and the style of the art, but on almost every other level 'Reagan Youth' failed to catch my interest.


Our protagonist is a bit of a blank, sad backstory, etc., but we're given no reason to really root for him - side characters are given more dimension. The two women existed to be exotic, brandish exotic weapons, and be desired. Urgh. 


Add weird high school dramatics and a drug-fueled trip to Vegas and you have a comic book that fails to make the most of its premise. I don't know where this series is going and I don't aim to find out.
