Title: iZombie Vol. 1
Author:  Chris Roberson
Series: iZombie
Publisher: Vertigo

My Rating:

Told from a female zombie’s perspective, this smart, witty detective series mixes urban fantasy and romantic dramedy.

Gwendolyn “Gwen” Dylan is a 20-something gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery. Once a month she must eat a human brain to keep from losing her memories, but in the process she becomes consumed with the thoughts and personality of the dead person – until she eats her next brain. She sets out to fulfill the dead person’s last request, solve a crime or right a wrong.

Our zombie girl detective is joined by a radical supporting cast: her best friend Eleanor, who happens to be a swinging ’60s ghost, a posse of paintball blasting vampires, a smitten were-dog and a hot but demented mummy.

I haven't watched the Tv Show but when I heard of it I thought it was a cool concept. Unfortunately I didn't really enjoy the comic all that much.

The plot was ok but I still have a feeling that nothing happened in this volume. Yes, I do understand that this was like and introduction to the characters and the setting but still, I needed more of a story line... I'm probably not explaining myself all that well...

The artwork was also not my type, and it if was a bit more like the cover I would have enjoyed it.

I did like the main character though, and her ghost friend. I will probably go back to read the second volume and check if it gets any better.

Have you read it? Did you like it?


  1. Aww. It's sad that you didn't like the comic. I hope you'll get to enjoy the series. 😊

    Have a great day!

    1. Still haven't watched the series, I have no time whatsoever but maybe one day? eheh

  2. I've only watched very little of the series but I already see some differences. The book sounds better but honestly I couldn't get into the show so I doubt I would be able to get into the book just like you didn't. Zombies aren't my thing anyways.

    1. I don't mind zombies but this wasn't really my cup of tea. There's other comics which are better, but again it depends on preference really.
