Deadly Class, Vol. 1: Reagan Youth (Deadly Class #1-6) by Rick Remender, Wesley Craig (Illustrator), Lee Loughridge (Illustrator)

A dark, gritty tale that isn't for the faint of heart or stomach. Drugs, violence, and sex fill this story, but it's still a very human story. Not so much a celebration of darkness, but more of an acknowledgment of the darkness that exists in the world. The art style is nice while still fitting the story. The plot is interesting, and the characters complex in personality, and morality. Not an easy story, but a strong one.  I like the 80's history, fashion, and pop culture that's in the story.



I'm not expecting a happy ending, but I'm going to keep going. I don't think a happy ending would work, and would almost trivialize the story.


But more interesting.
