The DC Universe is going to find itself in the midst of a zombie apocalypse this coming May with the launch of a brand new six-issue limited series entitled DCeased from writer Tom Taylor (Injustice) and artists Trevor Hairsine, Stefan Gaudiano, James Harren and Rain Beredo.
“While the characters are the ones everyone knows so well, this is very much its own thing,” Taylor tells IGN. “The reason being, the stakes are real. We can tell a story without holding back. No one you love is safe. Even the icons can fall.”
“Batman is definitely usually ready for anything. And this is no different. But Batman’s greatest asset, after his friends and family, is his mind,” Taylor continues. “Without wanting to spoil too much, our virus affects the mind. Can Batman fight something that’s part of him? Or will Bat-god be revealed to be as mortal as the rest of us?”
“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was Death, and Hades was following close behind him.”-Revelation 6:8
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?
DCeased is set to launch this May.
