Deadly Class, Volume 3: The Snake Pit based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Remender and Craig continue to deliver a killer, no pun intended, book. Marcus's life a decisions keep getting worse as his paranoia grows. The book pulls no punches and readers never know who is safe or when the next shoe will drop. The book is funny, raunchy, depressing, action-packed, and twisted, plus a ton more. Craig's art is a really good match for the story. Overall, another great read.
Strange comic collection Not having read Volumes 1 & 2, I found this quite mystifying and the unclear illustrations did not help my comprehension. Kings Dominion, a school for killers, has various students, including Maria, Marcus, Willie, Saya, Petra and others. It’s a story of revenge, betrayal, love, rejection, drug-taking and a lot of gore. Quite engaging as they turn on each other and have to deal with teenage angst and rebellion.
