Heads? Everyone gets eaten by a zombie. Tails? Aw, who am I kidding…everyone’s going to get eaten by a zombie. It’s always a trick question when Two-Face is involved…and Harvey Dent’s role in this whole zombie Suicide Squad thing (zombicide? Is this a Zombicide Zquad?) is a whole lot weirder than you think it is. Or maybe not, I don’t know you. What are you still reading this solicit for? Get out there and read Task Force Z!

    This continues to be one of DCs strongest new titles. Writer Matthew Rosenberg doesnt stray far from playing out this fantastic premise and raising the stakes a little each issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Feb 22, 2022

    Task Force Z #5 is blissful insanity. This is a comic that understands how bizarre the plot has gotten, with so many twists and turns that it could pull a zombies head off. The addition of new characters reaches a crescendo here as Red Hood and his gang is actually the most normal group. And yet there is a reason for so many figures involved as it appears to be a tidal wave to wipe most of the slate clean. It is evident that both creators and readers are having fun in this comic.

    Task Force Z #5 is definitely a high point for the series and a low point for all the characters in it. With Wonderful art and devilish writing, you'd have to be as mad as Mr. Bloom not to read it! Read Full Review

    While this book has never had the subtle terror of Rosenberg's other DC horror book at the moment, it makes up for that with all the chaos you'd expect. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Feb 22, 2022

    This is another fun installment in the Task Force Z miniseries. There's a lot of fighting; there's some intriguing character stuff, like Mr. Bloom's subplot; and the artwork is really damn good. I'm still digging this story, and I think that fans of action-driven superhero comics might dig this issue too. Read Full Review

    Even though I enjoyed some bits of information in this issue, the way that the book looked, and the big-ass fight scene that we got here, I'm going to need a bit more out of this book for me to feel like Task Force Z is worth its twelve issues. I'm always looking to be wowed though and I'll definitely be reading each and every issue, waiting for that moment to happen. Read Full Review

    Task Force Z started out as a novel idea, but it's just getting thin nearly half a year in. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Feb 23, 2022

    Task Force Z remains entertaining and fun, successfully focusing on Jason Todd's character while balancing a large cast of characters and debating the dilemma of morals and ethics. In the end, there are a lot of moving pieces at play, and it will definitely be interesting to read how they'll all be resolved. Read Full Review
