And whilst a lot of other stories interest me, it seems that books like Morning Glories and the subject of this post grab my attention more than most. It could just be the writing, both Nick Spencer and Rick Remender are excellent writers, or the art, which is exceptional in different ways in each book, but I feel it is more than that.
Nobody has the super strength of Superman. No one can summon lightening like Thor. But everyone went to school at some point, and that makes the comics relatable. Deadly Class is about a school for assassins, and whilst I’ve never had lessons quite like the characters here do, the scene that is set is one that is utterly relatable.
And, to quote the introduction to the first volume, it portrays one hell of an acid trip.
