Armageddon has arrived…again. But what has to be frustrating to the remains of the human race is that this time they’re SO close to putting a stop to the anti-life virus in the seventh and final issue of Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine’s DCeased: Dead Planet.
Provided by the restored Cyborg and tested on the previously infected Big Barda, the cure works and can return all members of the feral and flesh-eating anti-living back to their normal, human states. The problem is that as of right now, only a small handful of heroes know about it, and they’ve discovered it right as the clock is about to run out for what’s left of planet Earth. A relatively well-meaning team of super-villains has unleashed an army of Amazo androids programmed to kill any anti-living they come across, and as if that’s not bad enough, the massively destructive demon Trigon has risen to Earth and laid waste to all of Paris in a matter of minutes. In other words, it’s entirely possible that by the time the cure is ready to distribute worldwide, there may not be any anti-living to save.
You know our heroes, though. Even in the face of undeath, they’re not going down without a fight as we see in this exclusive preview of issue #7. But there’s one big question—and no, it’s not what to do if too many anti-living refuse to take the vaccine—but rather what’s going on with John Constantine. The unpredictable magician has stolen some of the most powerful magical artifacts in existence, often at the expense of the people who owned them, and embarked on a top secret plan that he insists is necessary. But what is it? How much innocent blood will be spilled to accomplish it? And when it’s all over, will it be worth it? We can’t answer those questions, but we suggest you check out the preview to see how it all kicks off!
DCeased: Dead Planet #7 by Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, Gigi Baldassini, Tom Derenick and Rain Beredo is in stores and available digitally on Tuesday, January 19.
