    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 3, 2020

    DCeased continue to be the kind of out of continuity series I wanted to see after Injustice wrapped up. It's no surprise that Taylor is nailing every aspect of it because he gets these characters en masse and knows how to work this kind of storytelling. I thoroughly enjoyed the original series and how tightly written it was but I'm thrilled we're getting so many expanded elements to it because there's a lot of great storytelling to work with and artists that can be showcased through it. This installment is a big one for me when it comes to Damian, almost making me like him, and just seeing the transformation come through as it does. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 2, 2020

    DCeased: Hope At World's End #4 was another strong entry in what has been one of the best Elseworld Universe's in DC Comics library. Tom Taylor and Marco Failla did an excellent job on expanding on Damian Wayne's sub-plot in the original DCeased event. Damian's conversation with Superman will go down as one of more memorable scenes in the DCeased franchise. If you read the original event than DCeased: Hope At World's End #4 is definitely a must-read. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 30, 2020

    DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Four is a solid chapter in the overall story and feels like it signals a shift from what we've seen in the previous three chapters. We're getting a more serial storytelling than anthology of the first three. It's still really entertaining and a great entry into DC's impressive line of digital first releases. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 2, 2020

    Tom Taylor starts putting the pieces together to give readers more of an ongoing narrative, and while I liked the inclusion of Wink and Aerie from his Suicide Squad book, Damian Wayne is the main focus.  Taylor dishes out his usual feels, but the moment felt more like an extended cut from the original DCeased mini then anything else.  I had mixed feelings over the art, but overall, this was a good chapter, just not the best we've seen so far.

    As someone who's been generally enjoying the previous installments of DCeased: Hope at World's End, it stands to reason that even a series as relentless as the Anti-Life Infected can't keep its winning streak going on forever. While there's still some heart beating underneath this not-quite-zombified flesh, thanks to some mismatched storylines and some surprisingly tame artwork, this fourth installment is a mixed bag.

    Tom Taylor writes a great Damian Wayne and Jon Kent. High moments of the issue come in character moments. Superman making tea for Alfred and his conversation with Damian about taking up Batman the mantle was excellent. The "B" plot of Wink and The Aerie looking for a safe haven was the weakest part of the issue. It did end with an army led by zombified Black Adam coming toward the fortress of Jotunheim, setting up a more action-packed fifth issue. Overall, solid issue.

    I guess this is where the plot of this Digital First miniseries kicks in? I honestly didn't realize this wasn't just going to be an anthology, which made the idea of a Tom Taylor's Original Characters centric chapter a bit of an eye roller. But it was interspersed with some pretty effective emotion scenes cut straight from the original DCeased miniseries, which we know has nothing to do with where this miniseries is leading, so I guess it was there to prevent my eyes from rolling too much. It was a pretty good chapter. I can't say I'm too interested in the plot, but these chapters go by so fast that I'm not really sweating it. I will say, though, that the art here did not work. I think each chapter has a different artist, so that's not too more

    Maybe it’s because I already know what’s supposed to happen to a lot of these characters, but most of this fell a little flat for me.
