From the original DCeased, to DCeased: Dead Planet, DCeased: Unkillables, to DCeased: Hope at World’s End, acclaimed writer Tom Taylor and artist Trevor Hairsine turned the DCU upside down, combining horror, heroism, and hope in the face of Armageddon. Taylor and Hairsine reunite for the last chapter in this fan-favorite franchise, DCeased: War of the Undead Gods. This eight-issue monthly limited series arrives in comic book stores and participating digital platforms on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
What began as a battle for Earth has become a war for the galaxy! The emergence of a reborn, undead Darkseid in DCeased: Dead Planet sets the stage for the most devastating conflict yet for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman! As the Anti-Life Equation spreads into the cosmos, the survivors of Earth prepare for the coming apocalypse and realize their only hope could lie in the most powerful surviving hero from the first DCeased series.
Like previous DCeased series, DCeased: War of the Undead Gods will feature more than just breathtaking art from Trevor Hairsine, but an incredible collection of cover art from some of comics’ best talents. In addition to the card stock main cover from Hairsine, the debut issue also features a card stock homage variant cover by Dan Mora (Detective Comics, Batman/Superman: World’s Finest) a card stock acetate variant cover by Kael Ngu, a 1 in 25 ratio “horror” variant cover by DCeased mainstay Francesco Mattina, a 1 in 50 ratio variant cover by Sun Khamunaki, and a 1 in 100 card stock “virgin” homage ratio variant cover of Dan Mora’s art. The variant covers for issues #1 – #4 by Mora connect to form a larger homage image of one of the best-selling comics of all time.
