More information out about DCeased which shows that yes, it’s zombies, but no, it’s not the next big event as it’s not part of the current DCU continuity – whatever that is, these days.
Apparently . . .
Darkseid will unleash a techo-organic virus that overtakes almost the entire DC Universe – with Batman standing against the rage zombies the virus creates.
A six issue mini-series where everyone and anyone is up for grabs in terms of contracting the virus even, it seems from the promo, Darkseid himself:
The out of continuity take makes me a little happier as I had visions of some weird FINAL CRISIS / BLACKEST NIGHT mash up but (and I admit to some zombie based snobbery here) if you’re going to do zombies, they should be full Romero, not the “rage zombies” a la 28 Days Later.
It’s still a pass from me.
