Publisher’s Summary: The Daily Planet has become a beacon of hope for the living as the Anti-Life Equation sweeps the planet. What’s left of the Justice League have begun to gather there, bringing survivors and family alike. But the city is being overrun with infected humans…and superhumans! The war for Metropolis begins!
“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.
As the undead scourge continues to rock the DCU, I find myself becoming more invested in this series; DCeased remains a must-read series.
