Review: DCeased: Unkillables #3

DCeased: Unkillables #3

I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about diving back into a comic about an out of control disease and the survivors of the pandemic. While DCeased: Unkillables has given us a zombie from a villain view, there’s still something rather odd as we’re hunkered down. DCeased: Unkillables #3 wraps up this story arc delivering a satisfying, yet rushed, finale.

Writer Tom Taylor wraps up the latest chapter of the anti-life apocalypse with an issue that delivers an action-packed finale and one that could have used an extra issue. There’s a lot packed in with sequences that could have been issues by themselves. The sanctuary is being overrun by the unlife monsters and the survivors decide to head to Gotham and possible sanctuary.

The issue is mostly a road warrior trip dodging the dead and trying to survive and Taylor delivers some truly amazing moments within. There’s a sequence on the bus which is original and could have been an issue by itself, or an entire film by itself. It’s original horror and actually exciting.

But, that excitement is tempered in a way with each villain having their last stand to be heroes. The sequences are inspiring in some way but it has a feel of 37 different endings and a story that just won’t wrap up. That feel of multiple codas is enhanced with an almost poetic voice-over narrative and touching moments. If the brief exchange between Slade and Jason Todd doesn’t get you… It’s weirdly emotionally satisfying but also goes on in an odd pacing that does and does not reward the reader.

Karl Mostert packs a lot in for the art. There’s so much there to cover. Battle after battle, heroes, villains, and the anti-life dead all clamor for something. Mostert inks with Trevor Scott, Neil Edwards, and with colors by Rex Lokus. There’s some scenes that hit the emotional mark. One reveal is sure to satisfy. But, for every one of those, there are others where the image isn’t focused in. Instead, we’re given the big picture instead of the emotional close-up. It feels like the moments worthy of two-page spreads are never really given it. While the art at times is really cool, it never quite nails the excitement of what’s going on.

DCeased: Unkillables #3 is both a satisfying and unsatisfying end. There’s some great moments and a good sense of humor used but moments that really should have played out feel a bit rushed and the art never quite delivers the shock or the awe. It feels rushed in some ways with too much packed in and a finale that could have benefited from a fourth and final issue. As part of the overall story, it’s not bad, but on its own, it falls a bit short.

Review: DCeased: Unkillables #1

DCeased: Unkillables #1

DCeased: Unkillables #1 could have been an entire issue of Deathstroke killing zombie Nazis and I’d have been more than satisfied. That opening alone sucked me in and nailed down the exact type of comic that would follow. It’s an over the top summer blockbuster… and a hell of a lot of fun.

Writer Tom Taylor delivers another chapter, and look, at the end of the world. DCeased: Unkillables #1 kicks off the follow up to DCeased. The anti-life equation has ravaged the world and the heroes are likely to not solve the problem. What’s a villain to do?

While a sequel, DCeased: Unkillables #1 is set up in a way that you don’t need to read the previous series. You’re able to get an idea as to what’s going on. While some events are danced around, none of it is vital to enjoy this debut issue. And enjoyable it is.

Taylor seems to gleefully revel in the over the top nature of the story. Things are taken to the line and cross it, but at the same time knows it is doing exactly that. Jokes abound making what might seem macabre instead humorous. There’s levity in that 80s action-flick sort of way. Quips are delivered quickly and with a style that makes everyone cool.

Karl Mostert‘s art helps with all of that. There’s gore but it never quite crosses into gore-porn. Blood exists and bodies pile up but Mostert does it in a way that relies partially on imagination. The gore isn’t the focus. Instead, Mostert uses the situations for over the top reactions delivering a bit of visual and physical comedy to it all. That’s helped by Rex Lokus‘ colors which pop and prevent a dour look.

DCeased: Unkillables #1 is a solid start to this series. Those who have read the previous volume might appreciate a different perspective but it feels like a fresh start. The duality of that is impressive. The content itself, the story and visuals, are over the top in a big-budget summer popcorn sort of way creating a reading experience that you can sit back, turn your brain off, and just enjoy.
