The sequel to the bestselling miniseries continues! The Justice League is trapped on Earth, and they’ve discovered that life still survives on this dead planet! Survival is precarious, though-and with billions of infected still roaming the surface, death lies around every corner. But it isn’t just the anti-living our heroes have to worry about, because John Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Zatanna are about to discover another evil growing...

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Aug 4, 2020

    The drama comes crashing in hard this issue as we are treated to some hope and seeing more characters, but by the time the issue moves along we are ridden with guilt, shame, and sadly we might be losing that hope. Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine are the World's Finest creative for this DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Aug 6, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2 is pure quality, from cover to cover. If your heart doesn't skip at Damian's interactions, first with Jason Todd, and later with Cassie Sandsmark, then you're as dead inside as the unliving anti-life monsters in these pages. The creative team behind this series may be spreading death and destruction, but that just makes every second of life that much sweeter. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 4, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2is a great issue of a series that is proving to add to the DCeased series of books by presenting readers with great characters. While I'm sure that the mini-series will bounce back between the new Justice League and Constantine, I'm excited for the possibility with two teams with very different styles coming together in the future.

    However, I'd rather not see that become a major part of the series. But I do trust Taylor will make the right decision. He usually does. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 4, 2020

    Trevor Hairsine delivers another issue filled with intense and beautifully drawn moments. Not only does the art perfectly capture the tone and mood Taylor is trying to set, but there are some intensely scary moments throughout and the ending panels are breathtaking. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 4, 2020

    I didn't know it was still possible for Taylor and Hairsine to shock me, but the creature that appears in the last few pages is a unique nightmare. Can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 5, 2020

    All in all, a solid transition into the second issue for DCeased: Dead Planet. If there was one thing we knew by the end of this issue, it was that they were jumping into this with momentum and execution. There's no time to slow down when the stakes have been set so high from the start. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 3, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2 is a great issue of DCeased and one that has the classic Tom Taylor combination of action, character work, and feels.  Yea, that usually means someone is dying, but I won't spoil that here.  I think the DCeased books are getting better and better, and I can't wait for the next issue.

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Aug 5, 2020

    DCeased continues to be a lot of fun. This book has solid writing and art, and the story is intriguing and exciting. If you've been reading DCeased comics, definitely pick this one up. If you are new to all of this, and if you can still get a copy of the first issue, and you are a fan of superhero zombie horror, then I recommend giving this one a shot as well! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 6, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2 continued the momentum from the first issue and brought in plot elements from other tie-in comics all in one wonderful package. It is impressive how Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine are able to bring everything together in a way that continues to grow all the characters involved in this story. The sense of character progression is as excellent as the high stakes that continue with the Anti-Life Equation Virus ravaging the DCeased Universe. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 19, 2022

    DCeased continues to be a grim delight as we see moments of hope and love here of different kinds but we also see some real evil at play. Or, at the least, some really primal nature kind of thing depending on how you want to view those that have been turned by the Anti-Life Equation. I wish we had just a bit more with Black Canary to see how she's coping with things, and more of what Superman is going through, but I'm more than happy to give over more time to seeing this incarnation of Shadowpact and watching them do their thing. At least until several of them are killed because that's what this book does on a regular basis. Taylor and Hairsine have a great book here once again that I can't wait to get a chance to dig into more of. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 4, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2 is another winner of an issue for the series. It expands the world that we know showing us the impact of the Anti-Life virus and what remains. We get a better idea of the society that has sprung up. The issue too takes us on an emotional rollercoaster of hope and despair giving us everything in between. While some might see this series and think "zombie," it's far more than a simple genre. Read Full Review
