Thinks are dire through this entire series but it does something so right that a lot of horror stories forget to do. Give us great characters. Make us FEEL when people die instead of just going "oh look at the cool kill" and Taylor nails it. Each character has their moment to shine but a lot of deaths hit hard because it's emotional. The art is also great with some horrifying deaths mixed with bombastic action. Really, DCeased is a rare mini that will be great for a lot of people. Love zombie type stories? This works well. Love DC characters? This will work well. Love great art mixed with wonderful character moments? This works even better. This is a must read this year IMO and a easy 5 out of 5.

    Started this series a little while ago but forgot to add it to my shelves, oops. My boyfriend and I are currently reading this series together. We're both enjoying it! It's a very interesting concept and I love getting to know the superheroes a bit more. I'm not as familiar with a lot of them, but still. It's intriguing!

    After the first issue, I was pleasantly surprised. It was built on the antilife equation which is thing that kinda always was in the DC universe, it is not just about heroes getting infected and fighting against each other, this comic is really about saving the world and humanity. It is about emotions, compassion, self-sacrifice and it is spiced by bittersweet humor. Tom Taylor understands the DC characters on Geof Johns level and he is great.

    When Darkseid unleashes the Anti-Life Equation through Cyborg's mechanical body, he sets in motion events that will doom the entire DC Universe. This is the world of DCeased, where no one is safe, and those you lose, come back to haunt you. Tom Taylor likes murdering the DC Universe, doesn't he?

This is the world of DCeased, where no one is safe, and those you lose, come back to haunt you. Tom Taylor likes murdering the DC Universe, doesn't he? Between Injustice and Earth-2, he's great at it. Which explains why he's here doing another end-of-the-world type book. Dude knows what he does best. Taylor manages to balance the hope and despair pretty well throughout this series; yes, the world is ending, and it all looks a bit doom and gloom, but it allows certain characters to step into their own in a big way, and even the ending, which I didn't think we'd get to without losing even more characters than we do, looks to the future with hope, rather than miring itself in all the death that got us there. The one-shot collected here isn't essential to the story, but it fleshes out the world of DCeased in a nice way, focusing on some characters we don't see in the main book, and gives us a bit of both the magical and technological attempts to stop the virus. Trevor Hairsine draws the main book, while Laura Braga and a few friends tackle the one-shot. The main book has a grit to it that the story demands, and Hairsine definitely gives it that; the different focus for the one-shot likewise demands a different artistic approach, so it makes sense to have different artists on it (also it was released so Hairsine could finish most of the final issue without too much help, so there's that). DCeased isn't Marvel Zombies. It's not Injustice. It's a whole different animal, with a different set of stakes and a different point to it; there's hope in darkness, even when it looks like hope is dead. And that's kinda nice, actually.

    After transforming Injustice from a videogame tie-in to a deep, complex and award-winning narrative spanning years, Tom Taylor is tasked with making lightning strike twice. Only this time: Zombies! And bah gawd, he did it again. Maybe better. This could have been a lazy, cash-grab ripoff of Marvel Zombies. It's anything but.

I welled up, I got mad and, at times, it really hurt to read. But I never put it down. From page 1 to done. This is absolutely worthy of five stars for WHAT IT IS. It's not The Long Halloween or Watchmen, but what Tom Taylor was able to do with this is actually really incredible.

    There are times when I actually teared up reading this. This was brutal and heartbreaking, and Tom Taylor really knows how to write these characters. He's definitely one of the most consistently good comic writers out there. The only thing that bothered me was the inconsistency of the artwork. It's hard to set a tone when the artist changes from one page to the next.

    Usually this type of story is a no go for me. I'm more than tired of end of the world/zombie/killer virus stories (I admit to having read a few). I tried the first digital issue, and damn if Taylor didn't hook me in. The series' conclusion make sense. It is more than a little open ended, and I'm fine if there is never a sequel to this. This was a good story, and a large part of the reason is that Taylor made me care about the characters. Taylor really gets the essence of the players that he uses.

Superman's ability to inspire hope and his desire to save everyone. Batman's tendency to plan for everything, Wonder Woman knowing that war can mean death, and more. This tells me so many have recommended his Injustice series. Jon and Damian get chances to shine as does Lois. The killer virus premise is a little weak. But, what I think will hold readers is Taylor's handling of super humans and bringing out their humanity. disclaimer: read as digital floppies.

    4.5 stars! But I’ll round up to 5 because this was so good! So I started collecting the white background variants once issue 4 came out then of course waited until 5 and 6 released then sat down and read it all. Wow!! This was great!! Darkseid tinkering around with some powerful stuff created a virus that took him out and sent Cyborg to earth where the virus spread quickly. The story moves at a fast pace and things go from bad to worse in an instant. This story gets dark, sad and as characters 4.5 stars! But I’ll round up to 5 because this was so good!

At a point in the story it seems like our heroes might have a chance but then that glimmer of light is snuffed out. As the virus is taking over you get a lot of nice action and some cool character moments throughout the story. If you haven’t read this, I highly recommend you do.

    I am happy to say that this was surprisingly good. I expected it to be a cheesy joke of a comic that I would read for a laugh, and while it was funny, I wasn't laughing at it. It was rather well done. 4 stars. I wonder if they'll continue the story cause it ended with am awesome plot to start something new.

    This should not have been good based purely on my list of comics trope dislikes but Tom Taylor always comes in clutch as one of the most capable white guys writing Big 2 books. The Jon and Damian parts...my heart.

    Trapped between two genres: a genuinely funny superhero romp and a deadly serious apocalypse tale, DCeased never reaches true heights in either of them but it does deliver some great jokes, cool visuals, and a surprisingly grim story that never veers into "grimdark porn". Not Taylor's best but an admirable attempt to copy the heydays of the Marvel Zombies series.

    For me, this is one the surprises of 2019. This is a really good take on a zombie like infestation taking over the DC universe. Comparisons to Marvel Zombies are obvious, but I think this has a bit more story to it. And without spoiling too much, it's fun seeing how the rest of the characters cope when some of the heavy hitters fall. A fun book worth checking out.

    3.5/5 As a Marvel Zombies hater, to be so moved by a book about DC characters turning into zombies is nothing short of a miracle and Tom Taylor is nothing if not a miracle worker. A terrific ride that ends somewhat softly.

Before I start, I have to mention to anyone out there who doesn't know: THIS IS NOT CANON TO THE MAIN DC UNIVERSE. This is an Elseworlds-style story, and it's not connected to anything, and you don't have to be caught up on any DC title in order to understand this. That being said, I have to say this was a hell of a lot better than Marvel Zombies (the first miniseries, which I DNF'd because of how awful and disgusting it was), because at least this has some heart DC Comics meets 28 Days Later!

That being said, I have to say this was a hell of a lot better than Marvel Zombies (the first miniseries, which I DNF'd because of how awful and disgusting it was), because at least this has some heart and it isn't just non-stop gore and fucked up bullshit. Also, it doesn't utilize zombies, so it doesn't have to be THAT terrifying, granted, it does have its share of gory violence, but its palpable depending on how you can handle it. The story was a bit rushed, because the whole thing takes place in a matter of hours and then it moves ahead a few months. The characters were alright, nothing too drastic when it comes to characterization.There's also some flawed logic used to justify the plot, Superman was actually using his X-ray vision to avoid getting infected, but when he visits his family's farm, he goes to the barn to unlock the cellar to see his father has been infected, and that seems redundant once you know he's been using his X-ray vision the whole time, like why bother opening the cellar in the first place? And why couldn't the Fortress of Solitude hold back against the Martian Manhunter? Why was Superman so easily impaled by The Flash's limbs if he's indestructible? (One may argue that The Flash might've phased through him just as he was being ran through), and why didn't the Green Lantern Corps show up sooner rather than later? And how come Superman managed to survive a super-mega nuclear explosion, but got easily infected by a virus? It would've made sense if Superman got infected the same way Captain Atom got infected. The narration was also confusing for me at first, because I didn't know who was narrating (it's Lois Lane, btw, just so you won't be confused when you get to read it). The narration dialogue can be a bit cheesy/schmaltzy at times, but the real emotions shined through when Superman was saying goodbye to everyone. The artwork wasn't the best to me, and I think someone like Ivan Reis or Francis Manapul could've done a better job. Overall, this was interesting, but I think it could've been better if the story was developed more and if it had more issues. This could've been a great opportunity to make a Walking Dead-style post-apocalyptic superhero story, and maybe this could've worked better as a DC Black Label title (altho, I probably wouldn't enjoy it if it meant there would be even more graphic gore and seriously fucked-up bullshit). Green Lantern!Dinah Lance was a cool idea, and her using a megaphone construct to amplify her sonic scream was awesome.

    In this high stakes superhero adventure, the earth is being destroyed by an equation in the form of a deadly, zombie-making virus, and Wonderwoman, Batman and the rest of the Justice League are the only things that stand a chance at stopping it ravaging the entire planet. The full-colour art is simply stunning, of course. It brings the story to life in a way that is just *chef's kiss*. The art actually changed because this is a bind-up of several issues, but I didn't mind that at all.

The art actually changed because this is a bind-up of several issues, but I didn't mind that at all. I liked all of the art styles and they all depicted the story uniquely and beautifully. The cover of DCeased is disappointing compared to all the art inside, so don't let it mislead you. I loved how high the stakes were in this novel. I feel like in a lot of books no one dies but in this one like half of the best characters die *soft sobbing* but it's so well done and might have made me cry, on a couple of occasions. Because there are so many characters, DCeased isn't full of character development, but I still loved seeing all the characters and how they reacted and were around the threats and each other. I don't love zombies but I actually really loved this story nonetheless. It was a bit more about the character's descent into madness or how they dealt with the zombies that the apocalypse itself, which I really enjoyed. Tom Taylor really manages to bring forward the characters personalities in the situation. This story is about the humanity of the superheroes and the friendships between them, more that a kill virus, though that is at the centre of the book. The idea of the virus was a tiny bit underdeveloped, but the rest of the book more than made up for it. This novel had the Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy romance that we all deserve! It was so cute and I just ship them so much. One of my favourite scenes was early on when Harley Quinn goes and tells the Joker how she's never getting involved with him again, because he's toxic and bad for her, but then he turns out to be a zombie already and she kills him. Perfecto. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that I didn't actually know all of the characters, but that's on me. DCeased is an absolutely riveting, high stakes adventure about morality, sacrifice and friendship and I loved it!!! Would definitely recommend to all DC fans, or even those newer to the universe.

    A riff on Marvel Zombies, this time with DC’s heroes turning into monsters and the world going to ruin. The major difference is that this time we get to see the outbreak from its inception. Darkseid grasps the Anti-Life Equation and (shockingly!) it turns everybody into the most anti-life thing possible: zombies! The fun of this kind of story is that it has the dramatic stakes most superhero comics don’t. Characters die left and right, and being outmatched or out-schemed has severe consequences.

The fun of this kind of story is that it has the dramatic stakes most superhero comics don’t. Characters die left and right, and being outmatched or out-schemed has severe consequences. All those powers feel more grounded now that people don’t shrug the violence off so they can star in another issue of their comic next month. Where Marvel Zombies humorously bleak, going so far over the edge that it was amusing, DCeased revels in tragedy. Every issue seeks to have at least two moments where the worst possible thing happens to a character. Maybe Batman has to fight off undead Robins. Maybe our sector’s Green Lantern becomes infected. Despite how quickly the series moves and how much tragedy it packs in, some of the moments of loss have power. More deft are the few moments when the survivors comfort each other that they can take the mantle of a fallen hero or make it through this. There’s a resolve to fight on that feels distinctly superheroic in what could have been wall-to-wall tragedy porn. The one part that sticks out is Harley and Ivy, who are obnoxiously invincible. They win every fight without cracking a sweat, and despite lacking any drama to their actions, take up a big chunk of the book. Their glee and ambivalence that the world is ending makes them the duo you most want to see get devoured by a bunch of zombie Amazons. When they abstain from partaking in the story’s climax, it feels less like a character choice, and more like plot armor preventing them from ever being at risk. It’s a slap in the face to the drama all the other characters are perpetually trapped in, and undermines how many of them fall. It’s still a fun disaster story, and a worthwhile addition to DC’s collection of alternate universe stories.

You’ll be sorry when all that Facebook turns you into a zombie! Ya dang whippersnappers! Not only is it hard to take it seriously while reading it, but the conclusion is so anti-climactic it actually felt like kind of a con. Like the cool artwork and covers sold me on a story that wasn’t finished, that needed a couple more drafts. I can’t recommend this book, for the ending alone. The setup is so silly, it’s not doing the book any favors, either. The artwork is great, and almost worth the price of admission, but if DC is going to try and cement themselves as the comic house with well-crafted and well-written “Black Label” stories, they need to slow down and do these things right. I don’t think I can keep my faith in DC after another one of these.

    Fundamentally, this is a derivative work. Tom Taylor already wrote about the end of a DC Universe in Injustice: Gods Among Us. And the idea of zombies destroying a superhero universe had been beat to death in Marvel Zombies Zomnibus. But somehow Taylor manages to get past that and tell a decent story. It's the end of the DC universe as we know it, with Darkseid and the Anti-Life Equation providing a great in-universe reason for the zombie apocalypse.

One of the charming things about this story is that you never quite know if it's our DC universe, which will somehow be reverted, or one of the other 52. So, there's tension. And Taylor does a great job of also making great use of his characters, having fun with the mythology of the DC universe and simultaneously giving the story depth and emotion. A deus ex machina at the end is a bit annoying, but otherwise this is a fun book.

    I was excited for this, but it is too rushed and built around more of a desire for cool splash pages rather than working its allegory. Take Stephen King's Cell and update it to be digital screens instead of sound, add some heroes, and you have DCeased. This goes from social media is a blight numbing humanity to climate change warnings. There are a few parts that stick out as interesting such as the Wonder Woman sword thing, and you could by extension marry her dialogue with Clarke's quote about I was excited for this, but it is too rushed and built around more of a desire for cool splash pages rather than working its allegory.

Aquaman similarly has some setups for message exploration that only lead to a splash page before moving on to someone else. There is a reveal before the ending that casts a pallor over it, and the characters are unaware of the implications. This again undercuts any message that could have been found herein, though maybe I am projecting onto Taylor and the message of the book is that all is hopeless, so here is some stuff he knows I will buy because I am a mind controlled zombie who buys anything featuring my kind, and we are all going to die anyway?

I'm not familiar with writer Tom Taylor but I'm kinda put out with the God references of Darkseid and more turned off by Cyborg's criticism of "gods needing people to suck up to them and reassure them although they're almighty". I did appreciate the effect of the techno virus in that it was so efficiently spread to infect the masses by the quick-trigger actions of consumers who use social media and the likes to spread the latest drama. Very relevant to today's mob-mentality of attack and misinformation.

    Dire and apocalyptic, but DCeased is hardly a gimmick just to show you 'zombified' versions of its many characters. It's a great storyline that puts a clever spin on one of DC's greatest villains, full of excellent character moments and a good sense of humor despite all the carnage. At first I thought it wasn't a good idea to put the exposition up front, but really the story moves so quickly after that and engages you so much that it doesn't end up a problem at all.

I thought the Marvel Zombies stuff was pretty fun for a few volumes, don't get me wrong, but this took a different approach and was truly impressive. One of the best comics I've read this year. Excited for the follow-up.

    I really sunk my teeth into DCeased. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but was pleasantly surprised to find this book was not only a heck of a lot of fun, but had some serious heart. Tom Taylor is also creative in how the (don't call it) zombie virus spreads from superhero to superhero, and how the remaining heroes come up with ways to battle the undead. Oh, and of course I love the pun. One of the best DC heroes battles I've experienced in some time!

    I almost cried so many times. This had amazing pacing and it never let me rest. The emotions run high on this one, same as the action and, god, I loved the way Taylor reinvented the zombie apocalypse. The thing I likes the most was that the story, although it focuses on a small group of people (Superman! Black Canary!) it shows us what is happening with the rest of the superheroe world. The thing I liked less: the art (sorry). After the amazing covers, the actual art was sort of a let down.

    Zombies vs. superheroes? Count me in. Zombies have become annoying and overdone (thanks to The Walking Dead for that) and pitting the undead against famous superheroes isn’t a new concept (Marvel did a similar theme a few years back), but damn if it ain’t entertaining as hell. I would have liked a stronger ending and more depth, though for a 45 min read, you could do a lot worse.

    I guess it's good for what it is. But honestly? It's not even fair to say this story has been done before. This is Injustice with an anti-life equation meets Marvel Zombies meets crossed overlay. I had high hopes. Disappointed.

    Tom Taylor made a premise I initially did not care for extremely interesting and exciting. The art inside is solid and the Fourth World connection is really smart. A top-notch miniseries that I'm interested to see go next.

    Definitely a 3.5 star rating. I'm not a big fan of zombie stories but Tom Taylor managed to make the characters and their fall into this virus more interesting than the actual "zombie attack" situation.
