    AIPT - Christopher Franey Sep 3, 2019

    A fantastic one-shot that gives fan favorite heroes a moment to shine in a horribly dark version of the DC Universe. If you haven't been reading DCeased, then start here with this amazing one-shot. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Sep 5, 2019

    I can not oversell how good this book actually is. DCeased: A Good Day to Die #1 distinguishes itself from its parent series with a widely different cast and intended narrative goals. Taylor has crafted a wonderful sandbox that the artists use to full effect, and the end product is one of the finest stories you could be reading right now. Don't sleep on DCeased or DCeased: A Good Day to Die. They really are too good to pass up. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 4, 2019

    Taylor has established another DC universe with Injustice and were at the point now where its easy to see him creating another ongoing Elseworlds series with DCeased. Its one of the best alternate takes of the DCU in years and theres little reason to think he couldnt keep this going. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 4, 2019

    Tom Taylor writes one HELL of a post-apocalypse, and DCeased, his zombie horror take on the DCU delivers its best issue yet in DCeased: A Good Day to Die #1, a side story focusing on some lesser-known DC heroes making their stand against the anti-life equation. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Sep 5, 2019

    This is just pure fun. It doesn't get any deeper than that. The story is a good time and the art is perfect for it. I'm enjoying this very much and it's a cool world Taylor is making. I hope he keeps going with it for many more stories to come. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 10, 2019

    The main DCeased run is a whole lot of fun but also very smartly run with how it explores what the characters are going through. Giving us an oversized special to run through a couple of side stories with very fun characters is exactly what it needed and it's just a delight. It brings back a lot of great memories of Taylor's other works while also providing for some really enjoyable artwork from Braga and Robertson. This series continues to delight and the various tales here told as Mr. Terrific looks for ways to save that day adds a little more color to the main work and delivers the goods. Definitely recommended for fans of the mainline series. Read Full Review

    GWW - Dusty Good Sep 3, 2019

    It really comes down to this. If you are already reading DCeased then you're going to enjoy the hell out of this as a companion piece or a spin-off series. If you're jumping into this series blind, without knowledge of what's going on, then this tale might be a bit of a confusing read, but still an enjoyable comic. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Sep 26, 2019

    DCeased: A Good Day to Die adds more carnage and bloodshed to the DC Universe. It brings us closer to stopping this global threat that's turned millions of people into bloodthirsty maniacs, but not without a cost. That emotional toll continues to be paid with the lives of heroes and their loved ones. The body count is going to keep rising before this is all said and done. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 5, 2019

    DCeased: A Good Day To Die #1 is a fantastic tie-in issue that elevated the crisis going on in the main series. Tom Taylor maximized the page count of this issue to elevate characters like Big Barda, Mister Miracle and Mister Terrific. Every character involved had a standout scene at some point in this issue. Booster Gold's final scene in particular furthered how desperate things have become in this event. If you are reading DCeased I highly recommend picking up A Good Day To Die #1 as it elevates a great event to higher heights. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Sep 4, 2019

    Overall, DCEASED: A Good Day To Die #1is a good tie-in issue. It opens up the world beyond one group of heroes and offers up beautiful art. That being said, there isn't an emotional core to the book which leaves me questioning why I didn't feel more. That being said, if you're currently reading DCEASED,this is a must read and if you're new to the story, this is a great way to jump in before the other series wraps. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Sep 4, 2019

    Whilst not perfect, DCeased " A Good Day To Die is still great fun, and I would highly recommend picking it up and sticking it in with the rest of the series. The characters, dialogue, action, horror and laughs are expertly crafted and the book is a joy to read. The art is very good, though I wish it could've been handled by one art team. Still, that's a minor quibble when everything else about the issue is first rate. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Sep 4, 2019

    Like I said, A Good Day To Die is fun, but if all some of these heroes are doing is, well, dying, you've got to ask yourself, what's the point of all of this? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Sep 4, 2019

    As a whole, the decision to add a paper thin DCeased tie-in story, to an event that has already started to wear thin with this reader, was a confusing choice. On top of that the story had a very strange tone, which only served to add reference laden comedy to a dour zombie tie-in story. Tom Taylor, who I'm usually a huge fan of, misses big with this tie in. If you're in the mood for a book filled with Tom King callouts, than this one might be up your ally, however it doesn't do much for DCeased as a whole. Read Full Review
