Starting in May, DC will take on a new kind of enemy: DCeased, a six-issue series that sees the greatest superheroes in the DC Universe face-off to a threat reminiscent to The Green Lantern’s Blackest Night Arc, The Undead! As explained in a brief synopsis from DC –
“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?
New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor (Injustice) returns with a terrifying new tale and is joined by artist Trevor Hairsine (Legends of the Dark Knight) and Stefano Gaudiano (The Walking Dead).”
The series will be outside of mainstream DC comic book canon and seems to have a heavy focus on Batman as some of the cover work reveals as well as Darkseid, the villain who will be responsible for unleashing the virus on Earth in the first place.
Either way it will be Amazing to see how the DC universe decides how to stop a Zombie Apocalypse, what do you think?
