DC has announced a new addition to its Digital First catalog. DCeased: Hope at World’s End by writer Tom Taylor and artists Dustin Nguyen, Renato Guedes, Carmine Di Giandomenico and Marco Failla goes on sale digitally today, and is a spinoff of the hit DC series that documents the events that took place before the Earth fell to the zombie Anti-Life Equation.
DCeased: Hope at World’s End follows Superman and Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Stephanie Brown, Wally West, Jimmy Olsen and more, and takes place in the span of DCeased #5’s time jump. It will publish digitally twice a month and run for a total of 14 chapters.
“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,” Taylor said in a statement. “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.”
Taylor goes on to give DCeased fans a taste of which heroes they can expect to play a role in the digital first miniseries, and teased a fan-favorite duo rising up to stake their claim as the next generation of DC superheroes.
“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,” Taylor continued. “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: Unkillables and DCeased: Hope at World’s End expand the world of DCeased and help pave the way for the release of DCeased: Dead Planet in June. Dead Planet reunites Taylor with his DCeased collaborators Trevor Hairsine and Rain Beredo, and focuses on Damian Wayne, Jon Kent and Cassie Sandsmark, the new Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman of Earth-2, respectively, as they return to their original Earth years after escaping.
Written by Tom Taylor with art by Dustin Nguyen, Renato Guedes, Carmine Di Giandomenico and Marco Failla, DCeased: Hope at World’s End is on sale digitally now.
DCeased: Hope at World's End is a new Digital First spinoff set before the fall of the Earth in DCeased.
