Wally West is the Fastest Man Alive…but will even HE be fast enough to save his city from the Anti-Life plague?! With the help of his fellow Speedsters including Impulse and Jesse Quick he’s going to give it his best shot!

DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Three

Review: DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Three

DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Three

DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Three is every bit equal to the excellent second chapter. It’s a tearjerker of a story as the focus shifts to Wally West as he decides he wants to save as many individuals in Keystone as he can.

Writer Tom Taylor has been using each issue to deliver snippets of story with in the world of DCeased. With the Anti-Life Equation spreading, Taylor uses the digital format to focus on heroes and villains and their reaction to the apocalypse they face. It’s a fantastic use of the format as each digital issue is self-contained delivering a full story with explanations as to what’s happening. Even if you haven’t read DCeased, you can still enjoy each of these issues.

Some of that enjoyment is Taylor’s focus on the emotional punch. Each chapter has had a tragic aspect about them. This isn’t a happy series but instead will get you to utter “oh no” as each issue ends.

In this third chapter, Wally West does what he can to save as many as he can in his city. He enlists Jesse Quick, Max Mercury, and Impulse in his mission. There’s also danger as each would be a devastating addition to the zombie hordes and spread of the disease. We witness their futile effort to stop the spread knowing their efforts are for naught. We also get to see the heroes rise up to the challenge delivering an emotional roller coast of an issue that ends in a bittersweet way. Taylor plays the dramatic card to the border of sappy but in the end it works in a compact punch to the gut.

DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Three

Carmine Di Giandomenico delivers some fantastic art along with color by Rex Lokus and lettering by Saida Temofonte. Each character looks so fantastic and the art pops in digital format. The colors really stand out on the screen and intelligently the team uses their limited pages in the best way they can. There’s not a focus on single page splashes, instead, we get interesting page layouts that deliver a sense of motion and bristles with the energy of those running around on the page. Until that last page which gives us all the emotional feels. As it’s digital, we get mostly square panels so the team really focuses on the framing of those panels giving us scenes from interesting angles and perspectives. All of it comes together to enhance that motion is at play here.

DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Three helps cement this series as one of the best digital comics out there but also one of the best comics going right now. Each chapter can be enjoyed on their own while revealing bits about the bigger story. They’re also packed with emotion from joy to sadness from despair to hope. It’s an emotional ride that’s worth the money.

Review: DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Two

DCeased: Hope at World's End Chapter Two

Wow. Just wow. DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Two is a phenomenal issue that is full of tough choices and tragedy. The digital series shifts its focus on to Kahndaq and how Black Adam is dealing with the infection in his country. As a dictator, his action is swift, fierce, and tragic in many ways.

This digital series tells the story of some of what happened as the Anti-Life Equation sweeped the world creating a mass of destructive zombies. While heroes did what they could to save individuals, others took different routes and this is one of those tales.

Writer Tom Taylor delivers brutal action as Black Adam takes action not only shutting down a main path of transmission but also swiftly dealing with those infected and those that might be infected. It’s the actions of a dictator totally focused on logic and devoid of heart. Taylor delivers that aspect of heart as some of the world’s heroes plead with Black Adam to take in refugees and together they can help protect what’s left of humanity.

Taylor uses that to explore Black Adam’s actions and allows him to reflect upon his decision. In just a few pages we get to see a person reflect on their decisions and the impact. We see Black Adam question turning away help. It’s an interesting read as we not only reflect on the inept response to the spread of COVID-19 but also the brutal action being taken by elected officials and the police attacking protestors. It’s hard to not compare the entertainment and the reality.

The art by Renato Guedes is amazing. With color by Rex Lokus and lettering by Saida Temofonte, the art nails the tone of every scene. From the opening action, to a tense confrontation with other heroes, the art really captures the moment adding excitement, tension, and eventually sadness. The colors pop and lettering really captures the tone of each conversation and statement. This is a comic whose art, dialogue, and story is perfectly in sync.

DCeased: Hope at World’s End Chapter Two is an amazing second chapter that takes you on an emotional roller coaster. It’s beyond fantastic and a hit me out of left field. While some might be predictable, it doesn’t lessen the impact. This is an issue you can pick up and read on its own. It’ll suck you in and have you wanting more of this quality.
