With most of the Justice League off Earth, John Constantine and Batman lead a covert team on a mission so insane it could have only been hatched by the man they call Hellblazer! But time is running out to save the infected on Earth-because a fate worse than death is coming!

    This is like Tom Taylor took all of the DC action figures and dumped them all over his playroom and started from there in creating this story. And boy does it work! Read Full Review

    irst, need more Etrigan. We only get a few pages of him. Maybe DC should give Etrigan and Constantine a Black Label team-up miniseries? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 2, 2020

    Just as I was getting a little tired of the DCeased story, DCeased: Dead Planet #5 and Tom Taylor pulled me back in.  Constantine has a plan, and he doesn't care who he screws over to save humanity.  So many people are going to die!  Is it weird that I can't wait to see that? Read Full Review

    Trevor Hairsine does some great work with the art in this issue. The characters are filled with detail and the action is great as well. A really great looking issue filled with intense imagery. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Nov 3, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #5 is a great issue with consistent art and story. I really enjoyed the team dynamics that were created in this issue -- they add to the overall story, even if this particular issue wasn't quite as action-packed as some previous ones. I'm sure will read amazingly in the collected edition, though, and it provides great setup for the next two issues. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 3, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #5 is another winner of an issue. It reminds us that there are numerous threats on the horizon and battles to come beyond just finding a cure. There's not one but two massive threats that are ready to attack and just cause absolute destruction and chaos. It's interesting that the previous issue got us to think ahead while this issue dials it back to remind us there's even more to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 4, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #5 finalized all the set-up that this story needs to have as we head into a conclusion that is shrouded by unknown. Our heroes have done everything in their power to turn things around with how things currently are in the DCeased version of the DC Universe. While there is that positive Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine reminds the characters involved and readers to never feel safe. That strong reminder will help keep readers on the edge of their seats as we now reach the endgame of DCeased: Dead Planet. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 3, 2020

    If you look past some of the lazy narrative choices, a very entertaining story will emerge, and so I still recommend this issue in the end. I just hope that Taylor will have stopped taking the easy way out by the time the series' finale arrives. Read Full Review
