☆ Read ✓ Deadly Class, Volume 2: Kids of the Black Hole by Rick Remender Ì I m reading slowly because I m trying to pace myself I don t want to catch up just yet Bullet Review On one hand, I feel this was legitimately stronger than volume 1 On the other it s still not what I like to read about Whiny, pretentious a hole of a protagonist A school of talented assassins but you rarely see them in school or being talented assassins they eff up enough that I wonder if maybe they ve deluded themselves into believing they are awesome The Love Triangle Girl Hate Over a Boy, no less I just don t like this sorta stuff I can t really make myself care about these awful characters not badly written, I should clarify just hard to relate to.
But most of my friends love it so it s probably another nail in the coffin of my humanity.

She told me that everyone has let her down except for me.
And all I could think was, give me time I flew through this one much faster than the first one.
It is still as good as the first one.
But I feel like this one was emotional, and it focus a lot of Marcus s and Maria s history which is so interesting.
Especially Maria s I am very interested in her history and what she went through I want to learn about her And with that ending, things might get even crazier.
I was rooting for Marcus and Maria though, they are quite cute but too toxic Sometimes, remembering a moment in your life can physically hurt as you relive everything that mattered to you then, and realize how far gone it is now.
I struggled to get through the beginning, but holy moly the second part of this volume was amazing Whoooooooa this shit was intense The love tringle was okay, my only negative really So now that s out of the wayKILL ALL REDNECK INBREEDS YES This was like a dream come true One thing I hate as much as asshole new yorkers I grew up in Brooklyn are backwards fucking rednecks Watching our heroes are they though kill a bunch of dirty fucking backwards ass people was a blast The fights are intense, wonderfully drawn, and scary as fuck cause you never know who s going to die Oh and let s talk about the fart scene I hate fart scenes, so badly done 99% of the time But this 1 percent wasfucking amazing I mean I was already cracking up before the punchline cause of the setup So this deserves a extra star for making me laugh just based on a fart scene YES A fart scene Overall this series is quickly building up to be one exciting and fun as fuck series A 4 5 easy

After reading vol.
1 I thought this series has got real potential and I still do, but I m so bored of reading inner dialogue and watching the story go nowhere I m still not sure if this has potential or if it s just a great idea for a comic with good artwork 4.
5 Stars Damn that whole thing was MESSED UP Veerry minor spoilers ahead but sometimes if you don t say it, some baby will throw their toys out of the pram Marcus and his friends are back at Kings Dominion after their bonkers Vegas road trip but a villain from his past has reappeared with only vengeance in mind As Saya tracks down the whereabouts of Fuckface, Marcus and Maria s relationship hits the rocks who knew training to be an assassin could be so melodramatic Rick Remender and Wes Craig s Deadly Class continues to be a lot of fun in Volume 2 Kids of the Black Hole Like most second volumes, Remender spends some time looking into the pasts of the characters Marcus time in an orphanage sweatshop is nightmarishly recounted, seamlessly tying into his current dilemma with Fuckface and, by the way, what kinda name is Fuckface Is Remender channelling Mark Millar We also see Maria s horrible childhood at the mercy of gangsters who look like they re going to play a larger part in the ongoing series later on I did wonder a bit about her reaction to what she did at the end of the last volume I mean, she s in a school for assassins, and she s all torn up about killing someone doesn t that make her totally unsuited to this profession I know the person she killed was someone she was once close to but still Amidst all the darkness and extremely graphic violence, Remender does manage to once again convincingly capture the energy of youth in some scenes The house parties are as lame and angsty as they usually are, the cool kids posing at one another in as louche a way as possible, and I loved the nightclub scene which gave me a new appreciation for slam dancing it s 1988 alright Marcus does some douchey things in this book but he s a teenager and you re supposed to be a douche at that age He does get his comeuppance though He s working part time in a comics shop and, after waking up late with a hangover, he rushes over there, dealing with the crowds of eager comics fans looking to snap up some bargains in a big sale why is Marcus working alone on a big sale day shouldn t there be at least two clerks around One kid hassles Marcus all day to draw him Spider Man fighting Sabretooth and Marcus decides he s going to fart on his face instead and then the previous night s excesses catch up with him and there s an epic diarrhea scene in his pants you could say Marcus has a deadly ass Thankyou, thankyou Wes Craig s art is excellent and Lee Loughridge s colours are subtle but effective I really liked how the little bubble panels in the first chapter s prologue drip downwards at the edge of the page, seguing into the double splash title page It felt like reading a Bond opening Maria s assassin s outfit is by far the best in the group and I m hoping the others will start dressing imaginatively when they re in persona Kids of the Black Hole is very dark, very violent, and, at times, very funny The love triangle stuff is a bit overplayed and hackneyed, and the action finale wasn t as gripping as a result, but, all things considered, Remender does a fine job balancing the various elements into an entertaining narrative Deadly Class is the best thing Rick Remender s producing at the moment check it out
