Not rated. 6:36 run time. Watch the film here …
My thoughts… Rick Remender and Wes Craig’s Deadly Class – published by Image Comics – is a bad-ass, action-packed comic book series and Jim Skinner’s fan film is a faithful adaptation of the first 14 pages of the very first issue! Marcus hops onto Saya’s motorcycle at her request and he is left wondering who this cigarette-smoking, bike-riding, bad-ass girl is and we are left wondering when Jim Skinner is going to continue the story! He’s such a tease! Oh, and in other news, I think I have fallen madly in love with beautiful actress Myra Borja! Sigh.
