‘DCeased: War of the Undead Gods’ marks the final chapter for the iconic series.

Press Release

DC Comics has revealed starting August 9th, the DCeased universe is closing out its final chapter. The series is of course written by Tom Taylor with art by Trevor Hairsine and will be appropriately dubbed DCeased: War of the Undead Gods. It promises to combine horror, heroism, and hope in the face of Armageddon. The series will run eight issues monthly.

So what’s DCeased: War of the Undead Gods about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

What began as a battle for Earth has become a war for the galaxy! The emergence of a reborn, undead Darkseid in DCeased: Dead Planet sets the stage for the most devastating conflict yet for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman! As the Anti-Life Equation spreads into the cosmos, the survivors of Earth prepare for the coming apocalypse and realize their only hope could lie in the most powerful surviving hero from the first DCeased series.

The iconic variant covers will also be coming back for this series with one by Hairsine and the debut issue will also feature a card stock homage variant cover by Dan Mora, a card stock acetate variant cover by Kael Ngu, a 1 in 25 ratio “horror” variant cover by DCeased mainstay Francesco Mattina, a 1 in 50 ratio variant cover by Sun Khamunaki, and a 1 in 100 card stock “virgin” homage ratio variant cover of Dan Mora’s art.

Oh, and that Dan Mora homage cover? It’s homaging Jim Lee’s classic X-Men cover!
