    DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #6 gives us everything that I love about comics. Spectacle, entertainment, thrills, chills, and surprises. The villains are despicable, the heroes are larger than life and the stakes are incredibly high. One of my all-time favorite comic characters takes a massive step forward in this issue, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the final two chapters.

    It’s too bad that Taylor’s Superman Son of Kal-El couldn’t have worked in more moments with Superman as Taylor really has a handle on Clark Kent’s mindset.

    Travor Hairsine, with inker Andy Lanning, brings his usual intensity to the artwork, which provides that extra gravitas to the action sequences where it’s easy to imagine the impact of the wallop of the blows and blasts from power rings, eyes and hands. Rain Beredo’s measured color work remains a strong staple of the series. Beredo doesn’t get too indulgent on blood despite the subject matter allowing it to be more impactful when it does start splattering.

    There are two more issues left in this series and Taylor shows he’s still got plenty of options and ideas before the big finale of his DCeased Universe.

    As we reach the last act of Tom Taylor’s high-intensity zombie thriller, the stakes are higher than ever. (…) But this series wouldn’t work nearly as well if it didn’t have a personal touch. These are people who have been through hell and back. Some have literally been dead for years. Some have lost almost everyone. So when the zombies come to Earth once again, and one more civilian falls, it sets into motion a chain of events that took me by surprise. We have Jon and Damian making a last desperate stand together, while President Lane does her best to preserve what life is left. And then we have an unexpected character undergo a transformation that dropped my jaw when I saw where this was going. It’s thrilling, and all a little ridiculous, but in a way that never stops being incredibly entertaining. I don’t have any idea how Taylor can wrap this up in two more issues, or what will be left of the world when he’s done, but I’m pretty sure this will go down as one of the best long-form Elseworlds.

    When Darkseid – as a Yellow Lantern and virus twisted – isn’t the worst you’re facing in this story, you know things are going badly for the heroes. There are a lot of things going on here and what they’re facing still feels insurmountable, so I’m definitely curious to see what method they come up with to try and save the day at the end and to bring in some sense of normalcy and promise. Taylor’s script handles juggling so many things so well, from big galactic-ending level stuff to the small and personal. And with Hairsine and Lanning going all out with some strong layouts, good character expressiveness, and engaging action and dialogue, the book just flows wonderfully. I’m excited for what’s left once again.

    I’ll be the first to admit that DCeased hasn’t been able to hit the same high notes ever since War of the Undead Gods began. The story was always able to blend the biting comedy and fist-pumping triumph Tom Taylor has mastered as a writer with gut-wrenching tragedy and a ceaseless sense of creeping dread. It was that latter half that felt out of balance throughout the first five issues of the event – the stakes kept climbing higher but it came at the cost of a personal connection with characters we’ve known for so long. That finally changes with issue #6 as Taylor delivers a masterstroke in the final pages with Alfred Pennyworth. There may be only two issues left, but I know fully believe Taylor can pull off an all-time great ending.

    DCeased: War of the Undead Gods #6 is the first miss in the DCeased franchise. There is some plot progression, but we get a lot of the same content seen in the previous five issues. It makes you wonder if this issue was necessary outside of one character change. With the quality the DCeased franchise is known for it makes the disappointment even greater. The final two issues of DCeased: War of the Undead Gods has a lot of work to do to provide a satisfying conclusion to the DCeased trilogy.

    I don’t like DCeased, but I don’t speak for everyone. There are readers who don’t mind the tone, gore, or meandering direction of the story. As for me, things get far too morbid for me. Lately, each issue has been a rinse and repeat of the same horrifying and depressing beats. One character brutally dies, another succumbs to anti-life, and everyone sheds tears until we do it again. In many ways I find myself thematically grasping for meaning in something I believe to be unnecessarily mean. I encourage anyone looking for this kind of tragedy to continue reading this book, but anyone else is reading at their own peril.
