‘DCeased: War of the Undead Gods’ #7 review

As we approach the conclusion of the War of the Undead Gods, players will shift sides before we get to the big battle.

In DCeased: War of the Undead Gods #7, Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, Lucas Meyer, Andy Lanning, and Rain Beredo continue to do what they do best: make the DC Universe a hell of a scary place! Along the way, we get to see some wild sights, awesome character combinations, and characters shifting sides that will keep the conclusion up in the air for which side will win. Last issue’s reveal of Alfred Pennyworth as the Spectre was such an incredible moment and a perfect example of the wild mash-ups in this series. I hope Todd McFarlane is reading this series, as these would be some excellent action figures to have in a collection. This issue was something to read, so let us check it out!

As you can see from the preview, the action hits on page one. We see the citizens of Earth 2 trying to escape the invasion of the Undead, and it doesn’t look too promising. Luckily, Lobo is finally getting closer, and how he takes down Lightray is crazy gross but very much in tune with the Main Man. I can’t wait to see him unleashed next issue, as Lobo’s minor appearances have been teasing us throughout the back half of this series. Tom Taylor can write some hilariously gruesome speech for Lobo, and Trevor Hairsine helps to bring the visuals to a darker level, which is very promising.

From the last issue, the merging of Alfred and Spectre continues, and I appreciated that he stayed as our narrator for this issue. A perfect moment with Alfred and Damian helps sway the Anti-Life onslaught’s momentum. We have been fortunate with having Chip Zdarsky on Batman and Tom Taylor on Nightwing. Still, someday it would be great to have Taylor play more with the heroes of Gotham and bring his incredible characterization skills to those interactions and narrations. Speaking of Taylor’s style in this issue, he must be feeling guilty and generous, as we get some characters back from the side of the Undead. How harsh will the conclusion be for our heroes?

The art team also rises to the challenge of Tom Taylor’s script. Rain Beredo’s colors help keep tones that fit scenes of battle, aftermath, or even character drama, especially the page with Damian’s scream. We have two artists this issue with Lucas Meyer joining Trevor Hairsine, and they work very well with each other as you don’t get distracted from the change in art; honestly, they blend very nicely with each other. Meyer does get some great pages of script in his portions, especially in a fantastic moment with Cyborg – I’ve seen it before in Tom Taylor’s Justice League/Power Rangers crossover, but it looks way better here.

A couple of significant shifts in forces for the Undead will make for a good setup and conclusion. More Spectre/Alfred is always a great thing, and the creative team of Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, Andy Lanning, and Rain Beredo welcome Lucas Meyer as they do wonders with putting the universe in danger.

The character combos don't stop
Tom Taylor gives us quite a few returns from the Undead as he is setting up his pieces for the conclusion
The art team is a consistent contender with what they bring to the pages from the script
The issue is heavily written as a part of the overall story, which will be great for the trade waiter, but hard for the new reader
