    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer May 19, 2020

    One of the best written single issues of DCeased in my opinion so far and if I wasn't excited about Dead Planet before, I sure as hell am all in now after reading this incredible issue! Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray May 19, 2020

    If you've missed this series, or the original DCeased, then you're really missing out. I strongly urge you to pick up both titles, or their respective collected editions. If you're not a horror fan, don't worry. These books also deliver superhero action, comedy, pathos and morality. They give us everything a fan could ever want from great fiction, and they're about as good as comics get. Seriously… I mean it. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 20, 2020

    How this story ended warmed my heart. Before this issue hit, there was many ways in which you could have assumed they had no plans for anyone making it out of this in one piece. However, there couldn't be these other books to look forward to if there wasn't something on Earth left to save. DCeased: Unkillables #3 was a roller coaster of emotions as we truly got to see what survival looks like right now. It's not easy, and it doesn't come without brave souls stepping up to the plate. This was a story worth telling, and honestly some others could take queues from a story like this that doesn't get lost in the violence. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter May 20, 2020

    Bloody, satisfying, and often bloody satisfying, DCeased: Unkillables #3 is a perfect conclusion to the series. Taylor's excellent script work and Karl Mostert's gripping visuals are a double-tap of humor and horror that will leave you clamoring for more. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence May 20, 2020

    The last issue ended with a group of children held up in a gymnasium surrounded by the undead victims of the Anti-Life Equation. They were being trained by some of the best villains, heroes, and in-betweens of the DC universe. Time passes and the bizarre mix of characters grow into a surprisingly touching family. The twisted normalcy comes to an end when their sanctuary is invaded by a zombified, reflective surface-jumping Mirror Master. Now the team has no choice but to fight their way through the zombie hoards towards an uncertain haven in Gotham. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 19, 2020

    DCeased: The Unkillables ends in Tom Taylor fashion.  Laughs, tears, and death all rolled up into one to give the reader an emotional ride from beginning to end.  It does end in a moment of hope to carry forward, and overall, I ended up glad this side series came out. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 19, 2020

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 1, 2020

    DCeased: Unkillables is a powerful horror comic that's full of heart. Our care for these characters makes the tragic and terrifying events they encounter all the more harrowing. I didn't think we could top the original DCeased series, but this one did it in spades. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar May 20, 2020

    It's one of Taylor's greatest qualities. We expect somewhat of a happy ending, but there's an unease the entire time. He never lets readers get settled " which is why his work is always must-read stuff. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez May 27, 2020

    DCeased: The Unkillables is the finale to the story of the heroes, antiheroes, and villains we've been following in the DC zombie apocalypse. Amazing art captures the carnage and tone of the story, making this an ending that fans of the DCeased story should absolutely read. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph May 19, 2020

    This was great. I enjoyed Unkillables even more than the original DCeased miniseries. This one's focused on a small cast that you get to know and that you get to root for. The villains turn into heroes. Sacrifices are made. Friendships are forged. Tears are shed. And this creative team succeeds with flying colors. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 19, 2020

    Your mileage will definitely vary when it comes to these kind of superhero horror riffs, but I am happy to say that DCeased: Unkillables #3 plays well just as an example of stirring single-issue comics. Though it can and does get bogged down in the bloody business and dire stakes of zombie stories, DCeased: Unkillables #3 delivers a much-needed catharsis and optimism to its brand of horror; something often cast aside in favor of cheap shocks and thrills. This finale isn’t perfect, but at least it’s hopeful. And sometimes, that’s enough. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 19, 2020

    DCeased: Unkillables #3 delivered an emotionally heavy ending for this mini-series. Tom Taylor did a fantastic job paying off all the character arcs in this mini-series to make the entire package better. Every character involved was given memorable moments. And the ending built greater excitement for what is to come in the sequel, DCeased: Dead Planet. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 19, 2020

    DCeased: Unkillables #3 is both a satisfying and unsatisfying end. There's some great moments and a good sense of humor used but moments that really should have played out feel a bit rushed and the art never quite delivers the shock or the awe. It feels rushed in some ways with too much packed in and a finale that could have benefited from a fourth and final issue. As part of the overall story, it's not bad, but on its own, it falls a bit short. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens May 19, 2020

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez May 19, 2020

    I love what Taylor has done with the conclusion in DCeased: Unkillables #3 and how it leaves the door open for his sequel series Dead Earth, coming later this year. I also love Lokus' colors and Temofonte's lettering, it's hard to look past the pencils. That said, the story that has been told in this mini-series is worth the read, even with its big faults.

    I always felt like DCEASED was released a decade too late. If it came out during The Walking Dead craze, it may have been a zeitgeist classic, encapsulating everything about the zombie fad. In 2020, though, I feel fatigued, bored of this theme, since ultimately it always boils down to characters looking for a safe place that soon turns out to be unsafe, rinse and repeat, accompanied with random major deaths not really adding much to the story or developing other, surviving, characters.
    I certainly hope DC will put DCEASED to rest for a while. Let it rest for a while and return when, or if, zombie apocalypse becomes fresher and more creative than it is now. Global pandemic causing downfall of volatile corporatist capitalism may be a hot more

    This is fine. It was trying to elicit a much greater response from me as a reader, but it just didn't connect with me. I'm also probably a little biased as I just found out that yet *another* series debuted just today. I liked the first DCeased, but I was pretty much done with the concept by that miniseries' end. Then this series came along and it was better than I expected, while still teetering on the edge. I guess DC will continue milking this IP dry until people stop buying it. I'm once again done with this concept.

    Really amazing, and amazingly sad, story. In other news, water is wet. Yeah, that's how obvious it was that this was going to be a heartbreaking story.

    This is issue #3 of 3. DCeased: Hope at World's End #1 is also available digitally, today. Also really good.

    This sort of ran out of steam for me towards the end but I did enjoy it and I liked the emotional moments. I don’t think I’ll be able to sustain this affection for this universe long-term though.

    Prelude:
    DCeased: The Unkillables has had some strong two issues so let's see how the third and final issue goes.

    The Good:
    Look I have a rule. If I get teary eyed/cry when reading an issue, it's an instant 10. No ifs, no buts.

    Love the Mary reveal.

    All of the pairs are great here.

    Still enjoyed the art.

    Really interested in where this leads on in Dead Planet.

    The Bad:
    Nothing.

    Conclusion:
    Love this issue and even if I didn't have my rule, I imagine I would've given this a 10 anyway. It's.... it's just so great.

    Tom Taylor does not half-ass anything. Despite being a spin-off this was entirely worth reading because of the quality.

    ***Reviews the entire series***

    An overall fun, emotional transition from DCeased to Dead Planet.

    This mini-series takes a look at the villain's perspective of the virus that is concurrent with the original DCeased story-line, and centered around Red Hood, Deathstroke and his daughter, along with a rag tag team of villains and heroes as they attempt to survive in a world ruled by zombies. How Taylor approaches this cast of characters has really displayed his knack for character interactions and development combined with a fast pace and high stakes action. Especially with the villains. We always see them as the big bads of the DC universe, but this type of world really brings the heart and hope out of even the most bru more
