    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Dec 3, 2020

    Between Sean Murphy's "Murphyverse" he has created with Batman and Tom Taylor's DCeased world, I am not so sure I can go back to the way things are/were. This version of DC needs to be explored more and more as it just cannot end. This version of the Trinity has to have more adventures! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 1, 2020

    There's plenty of surprises, reveals and betrayals this issue with Taylor paying off that Constantine quest subplot in a logical way that opens the door for a smart conclusion to the series. Its going to be hard to say goodbye to this series, but hopefully this creative team has some ideas for the next grand adventure. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Dec 1, 2020

    This is another great issue with another great team created by these dire situations; plus it is all coming to a head with evil coming from above, below, and on site! Constantine is really building up the magical cache to save us"but will it just doom him in the end? Hype is high and I'm dying for that next issue! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 1, 2020

    I have a hard time believing that there's only one issue to go here, because it feels like there is way too much story left to be told in only twenty-something pages. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Dec 1, 2020

    Trevor Hairsine's art continues to capture the desperation of DCeased: Dead Planet. And while I tend to enjoy anything John Constantine-related above all else, Hairsine and Rain Beredo's best work was with Wally West, particularly at the library. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 30, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #6 sets up next month's big finale, and I enjoyed it a whole lot.  Tom Taylor gives fans some big moments and still keeps some surprises up his sleeve for later.  I have grown to like Trevor Hairsine's art more with each issue and have gone from not caring too much about Dead Planet when DC announced it to looking forward to next month's finale.  I should have known Tom Taylor would win me over.  He always does!

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 1, 2020

    Trevor Hairsine delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. So many of the pages and panels are filled with beautiful details in the characters and the action. A great looking issue with some awesome imagery. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a fine book and a good penultimate issue as this series heads towards it's conclusion. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 8, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet shows that there's still hope even in the darkest of moments. There are still heroes in this post-apocalyptic version of the DC Universe...even if they're an utter bastard like John Constantine. So much is coming to a head as this series reaches its epic conclusion and I have no idea how it's all going to shake out, but I can't wait to see it. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Connor Casey Dec 2, 2020

    I think it's fair to say at this point DCeased has pivoted over from being a full-on zombie apocalypse book to being more of a "here's another Elseworlds we're giving to Tom Taylor to have fun with." Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Dec 2, 2020

    It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Justice League Dark, and DCeased: Dead Planet #6 is like an Elseworlds variant of that brilliant series, but with Crisis On Infinite Earths level implications. Tom Taylor and the killer crew are giving fans all our favorite characters, mine in particular. John Constantine really comes into his own in this issue, and even though he's a self confessed “nasty piece of work” he's delivering the goods to prove otherwise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 5, 2020

    DCeased: Dead Planet #6 got the job done in setting the stage for the final issue of this event. Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine continued to deliver the strong, emotional character moments that DCeased has been known for delivering. With everything that has been set-up the stakes going into the final issue of DCeased: Dead Planet could not be higher. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Dec 1, 2020

    This isn't a terrible comic. I might seem overly critical, but the fact is that I don't find much of this stuff praiseworthy. DCeased has run out of steam: it feels like there aren't any stakes, and so many heroes have died that I've become numb to it, and the story is dragging at this stage. I hope that the creative team can end this story on a high note, but I'm afraid that I'm just no longer invested" Read Full Review
