Nya, Nicole, and Russ break down the first issue of Deadly Class, the Image Comics series from writer Rick Remender, artist Wes Craig, colorist Lee Loughridge, and letterer Rus Wooton.
It's a great start for what turned out to be one of Image's best and most original series in years, spawning a TV series that will debut later this week (don't worry, we'll get to that). But how does it age?
That's what we're here to talk about.
You'll have to excuse Russ's clunky walk through the story: he was using a big-ass hardcover book to read from, which is great because it has bonus features but less great because it is unweildy and there is no clear delineation between issues. We promise that won't be a problem next time we talk about the comics.
If you want to pick up a copy of the issue, the best possible way to do it right now is on Humble Bundle, where Remender has put the entire series (35 issues to date) up for sale for a low, low price of $15 USD, and part of the money goes to mental health charities. Check that out here!
If you are excited about the show and feeling like you want to support some of the terrific cast, you can also contribute to VOKRA, a charity that protects stray and feral cats in British Columbia, and qualify to get some amazing Deadly Class items in return, thanks to Siobhan Williams, who plays Brandy.
