While the mainstays of the Justice League-Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman-battle the common infection in the pages of DCEASED, a group of other heroes work to stop the impending apocalypse-no matter who they have to kill!
There is something about Tom Taylor that makes me gravitate towards his character and stories. Whether he is working on Green Lantern, Batman, Superman or Cyborg, he molds all his characters in a way the compliments each other and the story in perfect harmony. If the characters already have a relationship from different writers from different stories, he develops hose relationships in his unique way. Look at Big Barda and Mister Miracle. From the first time, we are introduced to them in DCEASED; you can tell that they genuinely love and respect for each other. Or Boster Gold and Blue Beetle have been friends for a very long time.
Tom Taylor, deciding to have Mister Terrific as the leader was the pretty genius of Tom Taylor. Mister Terrific is one of the smartest humans in the Dc Universe, so him trying to figure out how to stop this epidemic was an intelligent character choice. The one thing I hate personally is that Booster Golds vanishes off the timeline because of what happens in DCEASED number four. But that is a personal note. As a story, it is perfect that Tom Taylor got rid of Booster Gold. That means no one knows how to use the time machine and the death of Big Barda and Mister Miracle was for nothing as far as we know.
For me, the art is very inconsistent when Constantine was first introduced in this issue felt a little off. Where he is running in the second panel, his face is not as detailed as it could have been. This issue has more than one artist and sometimes that can be helpful for the comic, but in this case, it does not work. It feels disjointed, and at the time, I don’t feel the sense of dread in other pages.
Overall, DCEASED is a horror story with a strong visual impact that can sometimes feel a little disjointed. If you’re continuing DCEASED, you should buy this book, but it is not a necessity it almost feels like a side story.
