“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was Death, and Hades was following close behind him.”-Revelation 6:8
A mysterious techno-virus has been released on Earth, infecting 600 million people and turning them instantly into violent, monstrous engines of destruction.
The heroes of the DCU are caught completely unprepared for a pandemic of this magnitude and struggle to save their loved ones first…but what happens to the World’s Greatest Heroes if the world ends?
New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor (INJUSTICE) returns with a terrifying new tale and is joined by artists Trevor Hairsine (LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT) and Stefano Gaudiano (The Walking Dead).
We already did this in 2006-ish, right? The Darkseid War? Final Crisis? I know we are living in a different timeline now, but seriously, this is the fastest I’ve ever seen a bad-story-the-first-time get a reboot – and I enjoyed reading the Ultimate Universe.
Is DCeased needed? Personally, I don’t think so. If I hadn’t read Final Crisis and the events leading up to that, I would probably think this is hip, and now, and wow, but then again, I’ve read Marvel Zombies. I appreciate what DC is doing here, and the story build up, structure, and art is really good. Unfortunately, I’ve seen it all before. Young’uns go ahead and rush out in a buying frenzy, while us old codgers sit on the porch and tell you the way it was back in the day…Stephen's Thoughts
