“It’s hard to explain how quickly someone moving at super-speed can infect the world. Death spreading faster than the speed of sound. That day, we found out what happens when the unstoppable force meets the immovable object…they merge.”

Tom Taylor opens DCeased (2019-) #5 by providing readers with perspective, reminding them of the torn and tattered shape that the world has fallen into. Death and destruction surrounds our heroes and the survivors that they are trying desperately to protect. As it stands, all hope is gone.

With just one issue remaining in this miniseries, I find it difficult to believe that our heroes will end this deadly scourge and save the day; the reality, presented here, is that saving the day is no longer an option, and perhaps, it never was.

DCeased continues to impress thanks to Taylor’s excellent writing and Hairsine’s haunting artwork; it is their combined efforts that make this book’s second-half one for the ages.

Bottom Line

This issue’s second half offers one of the most intense, edge-of-the-seat reading experiences I’ve ever had; I’m not sure how this series will end, but I’m confident that its final scenes will be unforgettable.

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.
