    DC Comics News - Danny Saab Aug 13, 2019

    The series of DCeased so far has been great, but this issue was the best of the series so far. Fast paced action, story moved incredibly well, beautiful art, and a fantastic cliff-hanger that makes you want to buy DCeased #5 yesterday. An amazing read and continuation to this series.

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Aug 7, 2019

    Romance, flying butlers, island paradises and green canaries. All of these and more can be found in the gore filled pages of DCeased #4. The amazing thing is though, I feel that we ain't seen nothing yet, and the best (worst?) is yet to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Aug 14, 2019

    Ending with an explosive turn of events, the survival of the world continues to fall out of reach for these heroes as this final blowout might just be their last. Taylor and Hairsine continue to work exceptionally well and accenting each other's strong suits and creating something truly more significant than the sum of its parts. Although two issues remain a handful of one-shots are yet to be released which will flesh out how far the damage has genuinely reached. After this unexpected ending, readers will be left to wonder the fate of their favorite heroes until next month. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 9, 2019

    The story is tops! It's a fast moving comic book that doesn't let up. The art by Trevor Hairsine really is some of the best and most exciting storytelling I've seen in quite some time. The creative team works so well together and I can't stop reading this comic. I've become pretty obsessed with this. It's been pretty damn great. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 7, 2019

    If you're even a little invested in the DC canon, you owe it to yourself to read DCeased. In four issues, it has already shown a deep understanding of the characters and ideologies of the universe, and I cannot fathom what Taylor has in store for the conclusion and that's incredibly exciting.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 7, 2019

    Each kill and its consequence is crafted skillfully by an author who understands the different empathic connections we have to the heroes. Taylor exploits the emotional threads between us and our icons in the way horror should. Pick up DCEASED #4,you won't regret it. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Aug 7, 2019

    The action and drama continues to hit hard, and more DC characters make their DCeased debut, which might not be best for them. Lower tier characters get big moments and some revelations happen as the DCU continues to fight for survival. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Aug 7, 2019

    This is a great issue! The action is bombastic, the character moments are endearing, the art is (mostly) good, and the cliffhanger is perhaps one of the best cliffhangers that I've seen in quite some time. If you've been reading and enjoying this series from issue #1, you'll probably end up loving the @#$% out of this issue. And if you're new to this series, there's probably still time to grab issues #1-3 along with this one and binge-read all of them to get ready for the next installment. Recommended! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 13, 2019

    With two issues to go and things at their bleakest here, it's like Tom Taylor decided to just laugh at the DC universe and play Injustice-style with it all here. And that's a wonderful thing because that book was exciting and unpredictable. DCeased is pretty Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 7, 2019

    This was true madness unleashed upon the world. DCeased #4 was a great issue for the way that this creative team has decided to shake things up. This was the best time for them to show how destructive these infected can be, and the pulled no punches. Not to mention with one heck of a cliffhanger as well. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 7, 2019

    Tom Taylor's hard-edged zombie thriller, DCeased, enters its second half as one of the biggest breakout hits DC has had in a while, and it's not hard to see why " if you like pitch-black zombie action, this book fills the gap of the recently departed The Walking Dead while also delivering on Taylor's skill for character-driven emotion and interaction.

    It feels like Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III should be more fun. All of the elements are there, but it's not spending enough time reveling in the absurdity of these mashed up characters. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aug 8, 2019

    While the DC Universe has occasionally flirted with dark, “mature reader” sensibilities, I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite as bleak as DCeased. However, I think that’s not a bug, but an intended feature — it’s hard to imagine seeing the Justice League get knocked on their heels quite as irrevocably as we’ve seen in this series, and the ways that Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine turns the screws on these typically unbeatable heroes leaves for some pretty horrifying twists. With two more issues to go, it’s unclear whether or not this creative team will stick the landing, but it’s undeniable that the journey along the way won’t leave some unsettling landmarks.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 9, 2019

    Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine have created a special DC Comics event and DCeased #4 continues to show why that is. This issue is properly paced as the story marches forward with our favorite DCU heroes dealing with the crisis brought about by the Anti-Life Equation. There are plenty of poignant scenes involving Damian Wayne, Superman and others that help make DCeased #4 a strong follow-up to all the development in the first three issues. With only two issues left in this event we are left wondering how things will end up wrapping up, which is an exciting hook to come back for more from the DCeased story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Aug 7, 2019

    Overall, DCeased is a pretty average story overall that continues to trudge along without making much headway again, until the last few pages of this issue. Some of the stories emotional punches, while handled in typical Tom Taylor fashion, feel lacking the impact they should due to an artistic mismatch, leaving those moments overall feeling just hallow. DCeased is good, but after four issues its far from great, and even echo's Taylor's Injustice story a little too closely for my liking. Read Full Review
