With the world ending around them, Red Hood and Batgirl take shelter in the most unlikely place: an orphanage full of children! Will they be able to protect the kids from the impending hordes of the infected streaming out of Gotham City and Blüdhaven? And elsewhere, Deathstroke, Vandal Savage, and some of DC's worst villains battle the apocalypse out as an "Anti-Suicide Squad." But a certain wondrous woman may not let them have it their own way!

    Yep, this book's on roll. Now let me just scoop up the corpse of a dead supervillain, and hook it onto the hood of my fanboymobile. Then I'll put pedal to the metal, and blast the classic Rock… as I get my kicks on Route 666. Read Full Review

    Given how the cast is getting streamlined each issue its easy to see why Unkillables is just a three issue mini-series. Hopefully when the next chapter of DCeased kicks off later this year there will be some survivors left. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 18, 2020

    Just like the first issue, DCeased: Unkillables #2 keeps you at the edge of your seat for the ensuing chaos which does not discriminate between hero, anti-hero, or villain. There's always moments to experience happiness with this creative team, but even now they know how to play with your emotions when nothing lasts forever. Read Full Review

    Also, we got a cool, but sad, cameo in the latter half of DCeased: Unkillables #2. Can't wait to see who else pops up in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 17, 2020

    It took an issue and a half, but I am on the DCeased Unkillables trolly and can't wait for the next issue.  I give Tom Taylor credit for making me care more about the characters than the actual infection story because that's all I needed all along. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Apr 1, 2020

    This is quite a series and one in which will be a great stand alone trade paperback. This second issue sets up quite an apocalyptic nightmare and questions as to how are they going to survive? After all, the Creeper and DeathStroke can't be the cure to this"or can they? Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 18, 2020

    Much like the first issue DCEASED: Unkillables #2 has a lot to love about it, just the art continues just to be a little too inconsistent. I mean I still enjoyed the heck out of reading it and I am on-board until the end. It is just at times the art took me a bit out of what was happening on the pages at times. It does not completely ruin anything and it is still a good sequential storytelling with panel structure layouts and some fun sequences, it could just be a tad bit better at times. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Mar 18, 2020

    This could've been a great comic, but with some of these master tacticians acting rather untactful, and others just being reduced to jokes or plot devices, this comic starts to crumble a little bit. The cliffhanger is good, though, because it's hard to predict how the survivors are going to get out alive, and I'm eager to find out. The action is also wonderfully over the top, and the character moments"though brief"add the character dynamics that a survival horror story requires. It's an entertaining comic, but it definitely isn't as good as the previous issue. Read Full Review
