Before the official announcement, Taylor (Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) teased glimpses across social media. On Twitter, he shared ominous hints and an image of bloodied Darkseid.

Still unknown at the moment is whether DCeased is an in-continuity event or something more akin to Taylor’s Injustice series. Based on the premise as described, fans have already made comparisons to Marvel Zombies.

DCeased #1 arrives in comic stores May 1, which will be a big day for the publisher; they’ve already announced another title being released simultaneously: Year of the Villain.

Does DCeased look like an event you’ll pick up? Leave us a comment!

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.
