Some of the most powerful entities in existence are now slaves to the Anti-Life. Undead Darkseid’s forces have spread the virus across whole galaxies. Even Kryptonians and the Flashes may be too slow in the race to cure worlds before everything is overwhelmed. The final stand for the universe begins.

    DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #7 is a triumph. While there are still moments of heartbreak, we do see the hint of there being true light at the end of the tunnel. We see characters who were previously villains join the side of the angels, and what they represent, plus the armies they command could mean that the tides are turning in favor of the heroes. Erebos and his unliving hordes had better watch out! Read Full Review

    Its hard to believe the DCeased ride is almost over for good this time as its been one of the reliable series since it began. With this cliffhanger it will be very interesting to see how Taylor and Hairsine wrap their trilogy. Read Full Review

    The thing about this series is that death isn't permanentboth for good and bad. Those who are lost rarely stay down and often try to kill their loved onesbut now they can be saved. The key question of fighting to save those lost or fighting to save the universe has largely defined this issue, and the stakes are deeply personal here. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 29, 2023

    This is a pretty fun issue that lets things happen, though it avoids going for the big deaths like it could. Which makes sense as we've had so many over the course of the whole run and there need to be some dashes of hope along the way. I like most of the small character moments and the pivot we get with Brainiac adds some extra fun to it, as well as the fallout with Darkseid. It's a solid installment that again looks great with so much fun action and emotion that's tied well to the script that gives us a lot of good stuff. It continues to delight me as it has from the very first original installment. Read Full Review

    A couple of significant shifts in forces for the Undead will make for a good setup and conclusion. More Spectre/Alfred is always a great thing, and the creative team of Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, Andy Lanning, and Rain Beredo welcome Lucas Meyer as they do wonders with putting the universe in danger.

    The issues calls all the way back to the very beginning of this saga with Cyborg getting a chance to shine, something it feels like we haven't seen since the end of the initial run. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 22, 2023

    DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #7 set-ups the final issue of the DCeased trilogy to end in epic fashion. The way we got there didn't always work but this issue made up for all the previous stumbles. We got big moments for Cyborg, Superman, and others that felt like true payoffs to what Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine have built with this trilogy of comics. Now, hopefully the finale will deliver a strong finale to the story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Mar 21, 2023

    War of the Undead Gods operates like a cheap action horror. It truly believes its big and gory action scenes are enough to supplement the flaws in the storytelling. While I find Alfred and Cyborg's story arcs to be among its strengths, Undead Gods cannot put the hope back into this story. Additionally, the book is ugly, depressing, and wildly superficial at times. Yes, the zombie story has overplayed its hand, overstayed its welcome, and is difficult to enjoy. If this issue is any indication, the final conflict with Erebos will no doubt be a horrific battle that won't mean anything at all. One can only hope to be proven wrong. Read Full Review
