Written by Tom Taylor (Injustice, Suicide Squad), with art by Trevor Hairsine and Stefano Gaudiano, DCeased pits the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes against a techno-virus that turns people into mindless, homicidal creatures of destruction. What’s worse is that none of the DC heroes are immune to this infection and are caught completely off guard by this new threat. If the world ends, what happens to our heroes? 

DCeased has been an instant hit with fans and received high praise from the press: 

“…an absolutely stellar series that any diehard DC or horror fan should check out.”

“DCeased has brought horror to the DC Universe in a big way.”

“If you’re any kind of fan of the DC Universe or horror, you need to be reading this book.”

This stunning hardcover collected edition includes all six issues of of DCeased, plus the one-shot DCeased: A Good Day to Die, also written by Tom Taylor with art by Laura Braga, Darick Robertson, Richard Friend and Trevor Scott. A parallel story to the events of DCeased, Mr. Terrific leads a motley group of heroes to stop the impending apocalypse, hoping to succeed where the heroes of the Justice League have thus far failed.

DC Comics Announces DCeased

DC Comic has announced DCeased, a six-issue series launching in May that sees the world’s greatest superheroes face a threat unlike any they’ve ever faced before: a global pandemic that transforms everyone it infects into a rage zombie.

Here is the official synopsis:

“A mysterious techno-virus has been released on Earth, infecting 600 million people and turning them instantly into violent, monstrous engines of destruction. The heroes of the DCU are caught completely unprepared for a pandemic of this magnitude and struggle to save their loved ones first… but what happens to the World’s Greatest Heroes if the world ends?”

The series, which takes place outside of mainstream DC comic book canon, will be written by Tom Taylor. Art for the series comes from Trevor Hairsine, Stefan Gaudiano, James Warren and Rain Beredo.

“The idea originated with editor Ben Abernathy,” Taylor shared. “He had an idea to do a horror/zombie tale at DC, and hit me up to ask if I’d like to be involved. At the time I was pretty busy, but over the next few days, my mind was racing. I couldn’t stop thinking of new and terrible ways to torture my favorite heroes in ways that made Injustice look tame by comparison.”

The primary threat of DCeased is the zombie-creating pandemic, but there are other problems to be dealt with — not least of which is Darkseid, the villain responsible for unleashing the virus on Earth in the first place.
