DCeased — a comic in which a techno-virus turns most (if not all) of the DC Universe into zombies – is going to spread throughout DC Comics’ entire publishing line this October.
And it’s going to do it with 23 variant covers. These covers, available for order now, are by a wide range of artist, including Bryan Hitch, Francesco Mattina, Tyler Kirkham, Howard Porter, Jenny Frison, and more. They pretty much uniformly depict the hero of a given title either suffering from or fighting against the virus in DCeased, which spun out of the DCU’s long-looming Anti-Life Equation, always a threat to destroy free will.
DCeased itself will be wrapping up at the end of October, with its sixth issue and conclusion dropping on the final Wednesday. Although, a quick glance at the sales figures (this thing is a massive hit), makes it pretty clear that this story and concept will return, much like a zombie risen from the grave to terrorize Superman. The comic is by writer Tom Taylor and a stable of artists, with Trevor Hairsine taking lead.
