iZombie

Standard

izombieIn the middle of this zombie craze, most people are reaching for The Walking Dead.  But if you’re not interested in a gritty and often depressing story, you might want to give iZombie a try instead.  iZombie is the story of Gwen, a zombie who needs to eat at least one brain a month or she’ll become a drooling monster.  She works at a graveyard, burying bodies during the day and digging them back up at night for snack.  But the brains come with memories and desires from the deceased; to quiet their voices, she has to finish up whatever the dead left unfinished.  And so she goes off with the help of her two best friends, Ellie, a ghost from the 1960’s, and Scott, a were-terrier, to lay the dead to rest.

iZombie has an almost Scooby-Doo-like feeling, thanks to both the mysteries Gwen and company are often solving and the art work of Michael Allred.  iZombie is a campy and fun read; it’s definitely worth checking out if you’d like a different kind of zombie story.
