I love the idea of the story and the artwork, but the story did not have a good direction of what it represented. I felt like there were no real consequences even when someone was killed. There's a lot of good ideas, but there aren't put together in this volume. Hopefully there will be better improvement for the next volume.

Love this comic even thought the newer issues aren't all that great. Picture Hogwarts, but instead of wizards, kids are learning how to be assassins. If you're a fan of 1980s punk/style, this is a fun read.

Teenage angst thrown in with assassin school. Its action packed and fun. Remender does his usually wonderful job of making great but flawed characters throw into a wacky setting and backstory.
