Kahndaq, like every other country on Earth, suffered a similar fate in the early moments the Anti-Life Equation plague. Black Adam, however, had a very different response then the heroes of the Justice League!

    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 Jun 15, 2020

    Misdirection is used very well in DCeased: Hope at World's End #2. Writer Tom Taylor never lets us forget that the infected are close by, however there are times when you feel almost safe, like maybe everything will be ok. We know that to be untrue since we have seen the end of this overall story, but that doesn't stop us from hoping...then the other shoe falls and we're plunged back into the depths of terror. This issue has a great closer that comes out of nowhere and hits with a bang. It shows just how quickly things can go wrong and hope can be snuffed out. In the blink of an eye, the danger reaches new heights. Read Full Review

    DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Two is an amazing second chapter that takes you on an emotional roller coaster. It's beyond fantastic and a hit me out of left field. While some might be predictable, it doesn't lessen the impact. This is an issue you can pick up and read on its own. It'll suck you in and have you wanting more of this quality. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jun 2, 2020

    And here we thought Wonder Woman was the worst that anyone had to fear from this disaster. When you've seen how swiftly Black Adam mows through the infected in his kingdom, it makes you wonder what kind of damage someone like this is capable of outside of those walls. DCeased: Hope at World's End #2 served as a good reminder that reclaiming Earth is going to be easier said than done. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 4, 2020

    The exploration of events in Khandaq plays well and I like that we're seeing more of the early hours of the event and just how bad things are going in different places and with different people. The original series could cover only so much so giving Taylor a chance to expand his sandbox is definitely a big plus. I really liked what Renato Guedes brought to the book with the artwork and style of it and just how smoothly Lokus took it to the next level. It's a solid read as I always enjoy seeing how Black Adam tries to do his best for Khandaq but invariably gets it wrong in some fundamental way. Read Full Review

    I love it when an author takes a villain,who thinks he is a hero, and then really turns the villain/hero on his or her head! Taylor has done just that with Black Adam in this DCeased universe! Well done! Read Full Review

    DCeased: Hope At World's End #1.2 is another action packed, yet cleverly written and thought provoking piece of fiction. The cliffhanger and next issue description leave readers gagging for more, so I'm very happy that we only have to wait two weeks to find out whats happens next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 3, 2020

    DCeased: Hope At World's End #2 delivered the high quality storytelling that readers have come to expect from this Elseworld franchise. Tom Taylor does not disappoint with his excellent work writing Black Adam as the Anti-Life Equation virus hit home for the character. The way Black Adam was portrayed and how it played into the ending of DCeased: Hope At World's End #2 worked well to build greater anticipation for DCeased: Dead Planet. Read Full Review

    DCeased: Hope At World's End #2 continues to set up the Anti-Life War, and things are about to get ugly!  Tom Taylor's use of Black Adam here is excellent and dips into real-life territory as he tries to decide what is best for his country during the outbreak.  I am still waiting for this Digital-First book to hit "must buy" territory, but this chapter's cliffhanger is a step in that direction.

    That all being said, I still think for 99 cents that this book is an absolute steal, and continues to be some of the best content that DC is putting out. This might be one of the weaker entries in the DCeased Universe, but I still would recommend you check out this series, and this issue. Read Full Review
