Marvel had Marvel Zombies. Now DC has DCeased.
The story comes from the mind of Tom Taylor (Injustice, X-Men Red) with art by Trevor Hairsine, James Harren, and Stefano Gaudiano.
Taylor has been teasing the event for a week, suggesting it’s going to be even more brutal on DC’s heroes than his Injustice comic, based on the hit fighting game of the same name.
Here’s the event’s 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?
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 we set Batman as the focal point character of the story set outside of the regular DC Universe. Darkseid and Superman both appear to be main characters in the story as well. Check out some of the art from the series below:
