Deadly Class, Volume 8: Never Go Back Reviews

  • Linda

    A highly-satisfying continuation to the ongoing series that is building to a potentially gory and amazing climax. This was technically a re-read for me since I read all but one of the issues within this volume as they were released but the last one, which I missed, although did little to move the plot forward, did give further insight into one of the antagonists. It gave dimension to a fairly one-dimensional character and I found that it gave more depth to the overall storyline. This volume was

    A highly-satisfying continuation to the ongoing series that is building to a potentially gory and amazing climax. This was technically a re-read for me since I read all but one of the issues within this volume as they were released but the last one, which I missed, although did little to move the plot forward, did give further insight into one of the antagonists. It gave dimension to a fairly one-dimensional character and I found that it gave more depth to the overall storyline. This volume was filled with great action scenes and some very much needed justice (or retribution, if you want to split hairs) doled out by Saya and Stephen. In summary, it was a enjoyable, violent read that makes you wish it was an issue longer.

    This series never fails to impress. Some great twists in this volume as well as character insight. Can’t wait for the inevitably bloody denouement.

  • James

    Homecoming for the main crew and some become legacy. Some closure as well.

  • Nic

    4.5 stars

    Deadly Class is a riot, and continues in a wildly entertaining flurry. I love Craig's unique take on late 80's fashion. The charters ideals and thoughts are very suited to the era also. While I was a teen in the early 2000's I feel like I've had so many similar convos with my group of friends growing up. I'm connected, and Remender writes it raw and organic.

    Volume 8 is 100% a bridge volume accompanied by one peyote trippin ballz issue, and a flash back to Marcus' early days in Kings

    Volume 8 is 100% a bridge volume accompanied by one peyote trippin ballz issue, and a flash back to Marcus' early days in Kings Dominion. Despite the volumes title, (never go back) going back is exactly what Marcus and Co. do. Their enemies won't stop coming. They know too much. They only have one option. They have to play by their rules. They have to go back to Kings Dominion. After an onslaught of bloody, action filled volumes. Remender and Craig are taking time to set the table for another darkly humorous feast.

    One of my favourite ongoing titles atm. Can't wait for volume 9. It's been a great journey and would highly recommend trying out volume 1

    | Very Good

    A cold-brewed interlude, still sinfully sublime, sluicing emotional bursts in spatter and spurts, it resets the paradigm.

    Marcus and Maria finally return to Kings Dominion, but all is not as they left it. Shabnam and his Council rule the school, while Master Lin seems content to turn a blind eye to their machinations in favour of his own. Plus, a Free Comic Book Day flashback story!

    Man, this series doesn't know when to stop. Despite all the insanity that Marcus and his friends have gone through, literally walking back into the lion's den doesn't seem to phase them at all. There's a hell of a lot of tens

    Marcus and Maria finally return to Kings Dominion, but all is not as they left it. Shabnam and his Council rule the school, while Master Lin seems content to turn a blind eye to their machinations in favour of his own. Plus, a Free Comic Book Day flashback story!

    Man, this series doesn't know when to stop. Despite all the insanity that Marcus and his friends have gone through, literally walking back into the lion's den doesn't seem to phase them at all. There's a hell of a lot of tension in these issues, and it's not going to be long before it all explodes, I'm sure. Reading this series is like holding a bomb, and you don't know which page turn is going to make it explode.

    The FCBD story is an essay on music that even Kieron Gillen would be envious of, as we flash back to the time the original kids went to a concert, and the effect that it had on them, as well as some extra backstory for Viktor that kind of makes him sympathetic, but not really.

    With the excellent TV show unfortunately coming to a premature end, it's nice to see that the comic book is still firing on all cylinders.

    A return to kings dominion but kinda feels like a build of a new arc in a way.

    This was... not the most interesting (or riveting) Volume in the series.

    : Filler— a redundant head-trip through Marcus’s inner turmoil. Perfectly encapsulates depression and grief, sure, but we’ve seen it countless times before in this series.

    : Gorgeous action/chase scenes. I am so constantly in awe of the coloring and art direction. This was more my speed, even though I’m still not a fan of Saya.

    : Coming full-circle— back to the basics. It’s dawning on me how Maria is probably/>Issue/>Issue/>Issue

    It's been awhile since I gave a Deadly Class volume lower than 4 stars.

    This isn't horrible or anything. It's still filled with solid dialogue and great art, but it lacks any punch the series is known for. This time we have Marcus going on a personal journey in his head on who he is. It is revealed that, he is, a piece of shit. Then we move on to him and Maria returning to school and how everyone's perception of him has changed. Marcus has a plan and this time it's to strike back at the school.

    This volume is light on plot progression for Marcus and co. Sure, Saya gets some much needed time but her chapter plays out like how I expected. I thought there was some funny moments but these chapters also felt like we were just going through the motions. While still solid, and fun, this is a bridge volume, and short, so hopefully the next arc picks up. A 3 out of 5.
