Works now but of course the video isn't available in my country.

Found this video on youtube, don't know if it's the same:



It looks surprisingly high budget for Scyfy.

So what is it about? Is it a school for mutants or assassins or something? Seems like a mix of Wanted and Harry Potter.

I'm ecstatic that they canceled The Expanse in order to bring us this!



Kidding aside, Deadly Class is a great comic and Remender's top work. This should be fun.

Looks kinda cool, but I think they're a little late for the "There's nothing else like it on television" claim.
They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Ah yes. On Syfy.

Yah that prompted me to check it out.
Real 'just one more chapter holy crap it's 4am' stuff. Great twists and retwists.


ETA and rewatching the trailer now that i've read the first four collections... yeah, i'm in for that.

Tho it's a little a bad sign that there are two 'styles' of trailers, this boderline punk rock, and the other that makes it look like a spoof John Hughes thing.

Still, at least visually they nailed the casting. I can't see a tv series getting even close to the sheer level of sex, drugs, and cast fatality the comic does, but there's a lot of good source material there. A. LOT.

.....seriously, if you ever read a comic and were irritated by the basic rule that most of the main characters were 'safe', this is the opposite of that.



To jump back a post or three, it IS 'school for teen assassins'... in the comic there are a few interesting twists to the concept that go beyond your basic 'school for wizards/witches/vampires/demon-hunters/spies' that is fairly common in sf tv especially at the YA end of the scene now.


Now... whether SyFY has the balls to incorporate those twists... interestingly, pre THE EXPANSE i would have gone with a flat out no-fucking-way-not-ever, but given that they did give that show reasonably free-rein... it COULD work. ...maybe. ....maybe, maybe.
