Villains, anti-heroes, and ordinary humans band together to survive the anti-life apocalypse in this self-contained companion piece to DCeased. I've seen someone describe this as a tense zombie movie with the spectacle of a superhero tale, and I think that about sums it up. Whereas DCeased (which is also fantastic) was more of a slow, tragic, almost journalistic story about the fall of society, this is much more like an on-the-ground, action-packed, claustrophobic tale of survival. The art by Mostert, Scott, et al. is stylized but effective--a bit blocky and rough for my taste, but ends up working as the story picks up its pace.
Though it's difficult to describe, this story has the feel of the 52 (secondary characters in the spotlight) mixed with Forever Evil (badass villians fighting for good), with a heavy dose of Suicide Squad (gruesome, tragic, and hilarious in equal parts). This is a true ensemble, with unexpected characters taking the lead at different times in ways that truly had my blood pumping. I still can't believe this book had me liking Cheetah, of all people--one of those stock bad guys that's almost always around but usually doesn't do much--but here, I cared (deeply) about her and others. That's how you know you're dealing with a master storyteller.
All in all, I think this is another home run for Tom Taylor. I really strongly recommend it to anyone who loved DCeased and who can handle that level of gore and tragedy. You won't want to miss this.
Love the story, but it states that is issue 1 to 6 when its actually 1 to 3. I thought maybe they had 2 extra issues that DC didn't release. I have the 3 issues and of course wanted the jarfcovet. DC needs to make sure description is correct. All retailers listed what DC had listed on thier web site. Overall love this book. It was awesome that they showed what happened to the heroesvleft behind and when it started.
Loved it , Deceased is extremely dark and yet heart felt all out favorite characters facing the horrors of the apocalypse. Unkillables turns monsters into heroes that are easy to get behind. Highly recommend it if you liked the main story.
Wow! Out of all the graphic novels (TWD, Trees, Etc) and books read in general lately this has to be among my favourites. The writing is excellent and just as good as the artwork. Hard to find a title that excels n both areas. After reading the first I had to pre order the second!!
I have to admit the cover got my attention. A couple of villains on the front cover I could not turn away. Did not realized that I had to read DCEASED 1st so I also ordered and ready it, but Unkillables fills in the cap for DCEASED. Can not wait to order the other two books ( Hope at Worlds End and Dead Planet ).
