Deadly Class is on sale! 

It’s 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can’t focus in class. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin’s top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he’s failing is “Dismemberment 101,” and his crush has a doubledigit body count. Welcome to the most brutal high school on earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At Kings Dominion School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical.

Study up and then check out the start of a new arc and a new class in issue 22.

It’s morning in America, and a new era of DEADLY CLASS begins here! The survivors of last arc’s brutal finale barely have time to consider what they’ve done before a new class of kids arrives at the school, eager to pick up the bloody mantle. And nothing goes better with fresh blood than a Freshman Mixer!

Why 'Scott Pilgrim' Creator Bryan Lee O'Malley's Future Protagonists Will Be Mixed Race
After "Scott Pilgrim" featured a mostly white cast, O'Malley vowed that his future protagonists would be mixed race.

“Honestly, when I saw the ‘Scott Pilgrim’ movie it was kind of appalling to see just how white it was — to not even really see myself represented on the screen. I’ve sometimes joked that 'Scott Pilgrim’ is my fantasy of being a cute white indie rock boy (which, as an ostracized mixed-race weirdo, was something I occasionally wished for when I was younger). I guess I whitewashed myself out of my own story, and I got what I deserved.”

Book 1 of my comic KILL SIX BILLION DEMONS is now available in print form!

You can get it from your local comic shop, amazon, book depository, and elsewhere (though I recommend trying your local comic shop first!).

Kill Six Billion Demons is a weird fantasy comic I started as a webcomic three years ago. This is the first volume of hopefully four more. If you like bizarre, inter-dimensional fantasy, gangster demons, and kung fu angels, this might be right up your alley.
