It’s 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. He has no money. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can’t focus in class, his mind constantly drifting to the stunning girl in the front row and the Dag Nasty show he has tickets to. 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, member of the most notorious crime syndicate in Japan, has a double-digit 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 King’s Dominion high school for the deadly arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates poison.

Join writer RICK REMENDER with rising star WESLEY CRAIG (BATMAN) and legendary colorist LEE LOUGHRIDGE (FEAR AGENT), to reminisce the mid’s 1980’s underground through the eyes of the most damaged and dangerous teenagers on Earth.

This seems like exactly the kind of thing Remender loves doing. His mainstream work has been excellent lately, but it’s always fun to see the other side of a guy who can let his punk rock flag fly so well.

Gird yourself for the long wait, and then get ready for a rough school.


  1. January 2015 ??!

  2. Remender is also debuting a new series at Image called Black Science with Matteo Scalera on art. Calling it “the spiritual sequel to Fear Agent.”

  3. Still waiting on the Remender Dynamite book they announced at NYCC.

    Remender has never let me down, i’ll at least try anything he puts out.

  4. Sign me up. This guy has earned the rare trust of buying sight unseen.

  5. Wow. Never thought I’d see Remender working at Image again what with him being a friend of Tony Moore. Guess we can thank Ron for smoothing things over there.
