Sometimes, good vs. evil is a simple battle. Those deemed evil are trying to bring hard to others and the hero or heroes do their best to put a stop to their wicked plan.
But there are times those who are typically viewed as evil go off-script. Why that happens is always interesting. Sometimes it’s to foil the plans of a counterpart. There are other times where the greater good is in need and they throw cast aside their past.
Then there are the unique instances where we see these so-called villains behave like normal human beings. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s powerful. It feels like a release.
Because not all villains see themselves as such. Some absolutely do, but there are others who are the hero of their own story. But when they get the chance to do good — true good that isn’t up for debate — they can change how they’re perceived. Not necessarily by all, but at least be those they’ve impacted.
That’s what’s special about DCeased: Unkillables #3. Tom Taylor tears at your heartstrings and has you on the edge of your seat throughout this action-packed finale, and ends this story in fitting fashion.
(WARNING: Spoilers for DCeased: Unkillables #3 ahead.)
Labeling DCeased: Unkillables #3 as an “action-packed finale” seems like the best way to label the issue without spoiling anything. But that’s definitely an understatement.
There is an insane amount of action in DCeased: Unkillables #3. Never-ending, nonstop, intense, vicious sequences that you want from a superhero-zombie story. And no one felt safe because of that. Maybe the kids, but that’s it. Even then, it didn’t feel like a lock that they’d make it.
It’s one of Taylor’s greatest qualities. We expect somewhat of a happy ending, but there’s an unease the entire time. He never lets readers get settled — which is why his work is always must-read stuff.
