War of the Undead Gods’ #2 review • AIPT


DCeased: War of the Undead Gods is an eight-issue miniseries, and the creative team has done their job with the space it has. The last issue started the drama, and this issue unleashes horror! Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine bring out the mayhem and action figure potential DC comics. As you read this issue, you will see a new level of dread at how the multiverse can give us the relationships we wanted and some unlikely allies. The New Gods are dead and you had better be scared.

Beginning with the art, Trevor Hairsine, Andy Lanning and Rain Beredo cultivate pure space terror. Trevor created some wild images that Andy sharpens for Rain to splatter with paint, making this a sight to behold. The fight scenes are unforgettable, inspire such awe and will make you glad this isn’t the main DCU. There is a mix of characters and power sets in this installment that will make your jaw drop at the potential it brings; Also, McFarlane Toys needs to make an action figure out of this thing.

This version of Supergirl Unleashed will remind you how spooky an undead Kryptonian can be. Every time Supergirl was on the podium, I worried about the characters around her; The art team gave her such potential for fear. Think back to the first time you saw it Jaw, and how the shark felt you for the water – this version of Supergirl conveys a similar feeling. Also, be sure to check out the entire panel every time she’s there, as there will be junk of death and destruction all over the place, which will have you wondering about your favorite characters.

Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t also give credit to author Tom Taylor for doing such an excellent job creating these scenarios. It worries me that the undead are smart. If you see what’s happening and take a moment after reading the issue, you might be wondering if this was the undead’s plan. I like this because it gives the undead more depth than the usual bloodthirsty, meat-hungry zombies. It feels like the anti-life equation is killing you and turning you into the most terrifying version of yourself.

Tom Taylor has shown us before that he can make some great teams with all sorts of heroes from the DCU. If you don’t believe me, go back and read it again DCeased: A good day to die. I feel like in this issue Tom wants to blur the lines and let good guys and bad guys work together. For example, check out the preview where you see Black Racer saving Big Barda. This is so wild that the Black Racer is dead but he’s trying to save her from something else. I can’t wait to find out what’s on the other side of this portal.

DCeased is such a dark and wonderful world to experience in the larger DC Universe. It’s the stuff of nightmares and potential that Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine live up to. The DCU has big bads, but this version makes them look docile. The creative team brings terror, so can the heroes bring hope?
