Fans of the DC Comics limited series DCEASED will be pleased to know that new stories from that apocalyptic world of heroes and villains are coming.
DC Comics has announced that a new series, DCeased: Hope at World’s End, will be available digitally starting today. The story will take place within the time jump featured in DCEASED #5. According to writer Tom Taylor; “There was a point in DCeased where we had to make the decision to skip weeks of losses and triumphs and heroism or our first miniseries wouldn’t exactly be a miniseries,” said Taylor. “But we knew we had a larger story to tell, so we seeded plots we could expand on and deliberately left huge characters off the table for the future. That future is here.”
In DCeased: Hope at World’s End, the Anti-Life Equation has infected over a billion people on Earth. Heroes and villains have fallen. In the immediate aftermath of the destruction of Metropolis, Superman and Wonder Woman spearhead an effort to stem the tide of infection, preserve and protect survivors, and plan for what’s next. In the Earth’s darkest hour heroes will bring hope! The war for Earth has only just begun!
Taylor also says of the new story and its heroes; “With Hope at World’s End, we finally get to tell the tale of what Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Black Adam, Wink, the Aerie, Martian Manhunter, Black Manta, Steph Brown, Robin, Superboy and more did to save as much of humanity as they could,” continued Taylor. “And Super Sons fans won’t want to miss the apocalyptic adventures of Damian and Jon as they stand up to the worst crisis the Earth has ever seen, and take their first steps on the road to becoming the next World’s Finest.”
DCeased: Hope at World’s End is written by Tom Taylor and will feature art by Dustin Nguyen, Renato Guedes, Carmine Di Giandomenico and Marco Failla! The series will publish digitally twice a month through its fourteen-chapter run beginning Tuesday May 19, 2020.
