deadly class vol 1

Ah, America in 1980s, the time of hair metal, 8-bit gaming consoles, and teenage hitmen. Wait…teenage hitmen? That doesn’t fit with the times unless, of course, you’re talking about Deadly Class by Rick Remender and Wes Craig. Set against the backdrop of the late 80s, Deadly Class is a bildungsroman concerning Marcus Lopez, a homeless teenager with a troubled history. With a strong creative team, and the backing of Image Comics, I was excited to check out the first volume, titled “Reagan Youth.” So grab your cassette tapes, it’s time to enroll in Deadly Class!

Back in December, I picked up and reviewed the first trade of Ghosted, a series involving a team of professional con artists attempting to steal a ghost from a haunted mansion. I loved that concept, and the story and art blew me away. Of course, I was excited to find out the series would continue. With high hopes, I grabbed the second trade of the series, titled “Books of the Dead.” Continue reading »

Delinquents #1

I remember first learning about Hobo Signs from a Childcraft book when I was around the age of four. Though I hadn’t encountered these signs in daily life, the concept of leaving coded messages to let others know about the local character intrigued me. Little did I know that these sigils would eventually feature prominently in one of the most hilarious comics I’d ever read.

Archer & Armstrong and Quantum & Woody are not only two of my favorite comic series, but also are the funniest comics on the stands. So what happens when you cross these two titles together? You get The Delinquents, a four-issue mini-series from Valiant Entertainment that brings together these two wacky duos on a mission to recover the Lost Treasure of the Hobos. It’s time to ride the rails on the wacky cross-country adventure that is The Delinquents #1!
