I read DCeased #1 a few weeks back and I wasn't blown away by the initial setup. I was however, intrigued enough to add it to my monthly pull-list. Now that the premise for the story is out of the way, Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine can get to the good stuff.

It's established pretty early on in the issue that no one is safe and by the end of the issue some heavy-hitting characters are infected and killed off, with "Oh Shit" moments on every other page.

I really don't want to spoil this book and It's really hard to discuss the comic without getting into the body count. I may make a spoiler video of the issue If I get time. There is a particularly brutal cliffhanger that may or may not be a fakeout ending. I really want to talk about the books details but I won't do it here.

Tom and Trevor have completely sold me on this project and I'm excited to see how far they go with this story. Clearly no one is off the table to be infected or murdered and it's an exciting prospect in an Elseworlds story.

DC has gone really dark in the past year and in most cases, I haven't been receptive. DCeased #2 channels the darker aspects of DC Comics into a fun event and for that I have nothing but praise.
