    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 2, 2020

    Like most of the series theres an undercurrent of tragedy destined to wipe out the slightest possibility of hope. Taylor knows what hes doing though even if we already know the fates of Superman and company. Fans of DCeased wont want to miss this digital only series that feels in some very interesting gaps in the overall story. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 30, 2020

    Since DCeased debuted, we've all been clamoring for more from this universe. There's a follow-up mini-series on the way and Unkillables, a short tie-in, just wrapped up. DCeased: Hope at World's End is a nice surprise full of scares, heart, and so much bloodshed. It's a welcome addition to this franchise and I can't wait for more. Read Full Review

    GWW - Daniel Medina Jun 8, 2020

    I highly recommend any fans of the DCeased Universe to give this issue a read. It's not necessarily must-read material, but I think this issue is worth the price and sets a standard for the book going forward. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 20, 2020

    All in all, DCeased: Hope at World's End #1 lived up to the name fast. Through the eye(s) of one Jimmy Olsen we got to take a trip down memory lane to remember the tragedy that was these people seeing their world crumble around them. This issue served its purpose to send the message that there is still hope that the living can reclaim what is left of the Earth. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 22, 2020

    There's a lot of potential for great storytelling and epic feels here and while the opening is largely recap, it sets the stage perfectly for what's to come. Read Full Review

    But just like with Unkillables, if you liked the original series and want something to hold you over until Dead Planet gets here this will definitely do the job. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 19, 2020

    DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter 1 isn't bad at all. It's actually quite good. But, the timing of the release and some of what's written echoes reality a bit too closely. It's hard to take Superman as a serious hero when we have them front and center today. The escapism is marked by a dose of truth. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 19, 2020

    For those whose superhero-zombie itch hasn't been sufficiently scratched by Taylor's Unkillables series, DCeased: Hope at World's End #1 will likely be a good way to hold you over until DCeased: Dead Planet hits the scene. Taylor continues to find new angles to explore this bleak new world, and Nguyen proves to be one of the most interesting artists to tackle this fallen universe of rampaging titans. Clocking in at just a dollar, DCeased: Hope at World's End #1 feels like an Anti-Life Equation for success. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 20, 2020

    Tom Taylor and Dustin Nguyen are giving us a new digital-first series set in the DCeased Universe, and I am already excited.  While this first chapter is a bit of recap from the original DCeased story, seeing it through the eyes of Jimmy Olsen makes it feel fresh. Also, it's nice to get up to speed before venturing forward, especially since the cliffhanger looks badass.  If you need some DCeased action to tide you over until Dead Planet hits, or want a new Digital First book from Tom Taylor, you can't go wrong with DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter One.   Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray May 21, 2020

    Seeing characters you've loved for decades die is always harrowing, but despite the violence, horror and chaos, every issue of this set of stories has always ended leaving us with a sense of hope. Out of canon continuity books like this one allow for fresh and innovative storytelling: Batman and Superman can never die in their own mainstream books " at least not permanently " so seeing them perish in these tales really hits hard. DCeased: Hope at World's End #1.1 is a very promising start to this digital series, and I look forward to reading more. Read Full Review
