    DCeased has been a tremendous ride. Taylor, Hairsine, Lanning, Beredo and the other various creators who've contributed in some fashion should be proud of the work they did in making a tired zombie premise into a superb story about heroes, sacrifice and family. Read Full Review

    Having shed the trappings of the zombie apocalypse setting the series had embraced, all that was left was a confrontation with the primordial creature that caused so much death and loss. The creature itself is nothing particularly special, nor is the supposed "final battle," but it perfectly embodies the series as a whole. Read Full Review

    It truly does feel like an ending, one that slams the door closed with style. It's probably destined to go down as one of the all-time best Elseworlds to come out of the modern era. Read Full Review

    The DCeased saga is one of the very few tales I own digitally, buy every individual issue of, and also have hardcover collections for. If you've never read it, please pick up the collected editions, because these are tales that will entertain, shock, terrify, inspire, and delight. That's about the highest praise I can give.

    Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, and Lucas Meyer bring the end to the end of the DC Universe. We've seen some fantastic team-ups and combinations, but there are still more before they go. You'll see what happens when you piss off a Waynea resounding conclusion to a beautiful series. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 26, 2023

    DCeased, much like Injustice and Dark Knights of Steel, gives me something that the mainline books can never give me and Tom Taylor delivers it in spades. Real stakes, real emotions, a sense of true loss and victory, and radical changes to the world at hand. What we get here is done incredibly well in balancing so many characters and working with brief subplots so that it feels real and earned. The artwork is strong, the characters look great, and the scale hits just right. And Erebos has the perfect look here at the end. This was a great run across each of the series and it culminate well into this hard-won victory that leaves you somewhat exhausted with all that these characters have been through. Very recommended.

    The journey was not always perfect but ultimately Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, and Lucas Meyer delivered when it counted with DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #8 being a strong end to the story. The DCeased Universe as a whole will easily go down as one of the best stories in DC Comics modern era. Read Full Review

    War of the Undead Gods continues the DCeased series long after its expiration date. While mostly a morbid story, basking in the carnage and despair of notable characters, Undead Gods manages to tell a story about hope within hopelessness. Albeit, the story only really accomplishes this after killing whole families and civilizations for impact. I found some of the gnarly “what if” aspects such as Alfred as the Spectre, undead Mr. Mxyzptlk, and Yellow Lantern Darkseid some of the only likeable standouts. However, none of these superficial aspects do much to save the morbid storytelling or maddeningly distorted artwork. Outside of the ending, the series has disappointed my expectations for deeper storytelling. Overall, I can only hope Taylor finally lays DCeased to rest. Read Full Review
