    DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #6 gives us everything that I love about comics. Spectacle, entertainment, thrills, chills, and surprises. The villains are despicable, the heroes are larger than life and the stakes are incredibly high. One of my all-time favorite comic characters takes a massive step forward in this issue, and I can't wait to see what happens in the final two chapters. Read Full Review

    There are two more issues left in this series and Taylor shows he's still got plenty of options and ideas before the big finale of his DCeased Universe. Read Full Review

    I don't have any idea how Taylor can wrap this up in two more issues, or what will be left of the world when he's done, but I'm pretty sure this will go down as one of the best long-form Elseworlds. Read Full Review

    When Darkseid – as a Yellow Lantern and virus twisted – isn't the worst you're facing in this story, you know things are going badly for the heroes. There are a lot of things going on here and what they're facing still feels insurmountable, so I'm definitely curious to see what method they come up with to try and save the day at the end and to bring in some sense of normalcy and promise. Taylor's script handles juggling so many things so well, from big galactic-ending level stuff to the small and personal. And with Hairsine and Lanning going all out with some strong layouts, good character expressiveness, and engaging action and dialogue, the book just flows wonderfully. I'm excited for what's left once again. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 22, 2023

    DCeased: War of the Undead Gods #6 is the first miss in the DCeased franchise. There is some plot progression, but we get a lot of the same content seen in the previous five issues. It makes you wonder if this issue was necessary outside of one character change. With the quality the DCeased franchise is known for it makes the disappointment even greater. The final two issues of DCeased: War of the Undead Gods has a lot of work to do to provide a satisfying conclusion to the DCeased trilogy. Read Full Review

    I don't like DCeased, but I don't speak for everyone. There are readers who don't mind the tone, gore, or meandering direction of the story. As for me, things get far too morbid for me. Lately, each issue has been a rinse and repeat of the same horrifying and depressing beats. One character brutally dies, another succumbs to anti-life, and everyone sheds tears until we do it again. In many ways I find myself thematically grasping for meaning in something I believe to be unnecessarily mean. I encourage anyone looking for this kind of tragedy to continue reading this book, but anyone else is reading at their own peril. Read Full Review
