    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 1, 2020

    This book is amazing and easily one of the best reads coming from DC each month. I can't wait to see what Taylor and Hairsine have in store next issue with the tease of some reason for optimism for our heroes. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Sep 2, 2020

    Taylor gave us the story, peppered it with some prequels and now takes us to the sequel. He's on fire lately with what he is turning out for DC. Take pause and go back to refresh yourself as to how we got to Dead Planet. Then read this issue! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 1, 2020

    These issues aren't double-sized like the Unkillables ones were, but they often feel like it"because Tom Taylor packs a LOT of story into each issue of this DCeased mini, a major step up from the first series. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Sep 1, 2020

    This is a great issue with hopeful moments tricked out in heroic and horrific art. We have something to hope for, but we also know something bad is coming too. The issue goes by fast but really does some great setting up for what could be a roller coaster of emotions with the next couple of issues. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Sep 1, 2020

    This comic is really good! From the script to the art, the action and character moments are all solid. This issue is also a mixed bag that evokes different emotions, from joy to sadness to horror. DCeased may have seemed like a bit of a gimmick upon the original series' initial release, but Taylor and his artists have created a rich and intriguing world within the DC Universe with great characters that we can all root for. Recommended! Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Sep 2, 2020

    I do wonder what kind of end he and Taylor have planned for all those Amazos. There's no way Penguin and his people win this fight, regardless of what he's got waiting for the zombies and the heroes, but I do wonder if everyone loses at the end of all this. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 1, 2020

    Trevor Hairsine delivers some beautiful visuals throughout this issue. From the fight against Plastic Man to the final reveals, Hairsine really knows how to move a story visually and surprise the reader. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 2, 2020

    In the end, DCeased: Dead Planet #3 added a lot of clarity to what we should expect from this story. It's not just the unliving that these heroes are going to have to worry about, and apparently not all the answers are going to be found on Earth. Read Full Review

    It's weird so say DCeased: Dead Planet is backtracking, but issue #3 definitely made it feel that way. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - But Why Tho? the podcast Sep 1, 2020

    While DCeased: Dead Planet #3isn't perfect, it is good. The twists in this plot are better left unspoiled, but I can say, the new enemies rising against the Green and potentially against our remaining heroes means I have no clue where the story is heading. That uncertainty, is what will make me pick up issue four. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 6, 2020

    Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine once again knock it out of the park with DCeased: Dead Planet #3. Even as they slow the story down there are plenty of things that they develop that uses all of the DCeased comics before this as backstory for why things are happening. That long-term vision made the character moments we get create greater anticipation for what happens next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 1, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #3 adds a lot to the series and world. There's a concept thrown out that really drives the direction of what's at stake and what might be coming. There's so much more than a battle to find a cure and what the anti-life zombies have tipped as far as balance is interesting. The series continues to mix things up a bit delivering ideas and concepts far more than you'd expect in a typical "zombie" story. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 12, 2020

    While we didn't necessarily need more from DCeased, this series has shown there are still many stories left to tell. Writer Tom Taylor is picking through what's left of the DC Universe, bringing tales of heart and horror that tie together everything that's come before. If these folks are going to have any hope of stopping this terror, they'll need to go for something big and desperate and that comes with a good amount of risk. At the very least, you'll never look at Plastic Man the same way again. Read Full Review

    These titles rank amongst those that I devour digitally, collect monthly, and that I also invest in the collected editions of. Great stuff. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 31, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #3 is a setup issue and a bit of a letdown overall.  If you like Trevor Haisine's art, you can go up a couple of points, but this was a disappointment for me.  I hope the next issue gets me back on board because this has been one of the few bright spots in my current DC pull.
