Ahead of this year’s forthcoming Free Comic Book Day on Saturday May 4th is another new comic book day and the publication of DC Comics’ DCeased #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor, David Hairsine and Stefano Gaudiano. With the denizens of the DCU succumbing to a fast acting techno-virus, it’s not long before the whole world, once again, goes into crisis mode with the collective super folk at a loss as to what to do.
It all kicks off this Wednesday the 1st of May, but ahead of that we’ve scored you a preview of this debut issue.
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?
