Review

“When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But…we didn’t have a nail…we had an undead apocalypse…and the military had a living being of atomic fire. It was never going to end well.”

In comics, governments–their militaries, really–have a long-running history of making bad choices in times of conflict; sure, it’s not every day that the Anti-Life Equation is used to cause an undead apocalypse, but during a tough time, like this one, the American military should know to leave things to the super-powered experts. Oh, but that’s right, in DCeased, the undead scourge that is rolling across the land is comprised of the so-called super-powered experts…we’re going to have a problem here.

Underneath the cover of what very well may be the most grizzly event in the history of DC Comics, Tom Taylor is telling a story of survival that, at times, is heartbreaking. Exposing the vulnerabilities of characters thought to be infallible may not be difficult, but keeping readers interested and invested while doing it sure is; Tom Taylor and the rest of the creative team working on this project, make it look easy. 

Yet again, I’m looking forward to what’s to come, fearing the worst.

Bottom Line

As the undead scourge continues to rock the DCU, I find myself becoming more invested in this series; DCeased remains a must-read series.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
