We have done a lot of coverage regarding Vertigo’s upcoming zombie comedy title, “I, ZOMBIE’ that is due out May 5th. (For only a buck!) Well thanks to Vertigo’s blog that shares our name, we have a 5 page look inside of the first issue a full month before it is due to be released. The title is being tauted as one of the most original zombie titles since “THE WALKING DEAD”, and early reviews are saying it definitely lives up to the hype. Judge for yourself beyond the break.
“Gwen Dylan is a gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery…and a zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain – both to keep from going all “Night of the Living Dead,” and to keep her own memories intact. As a result, Gwen’s mind is crowded with the dead person’s thoughts. And lately, she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests. Torn between a mysterious mummy and a dashing young monster-hunter, Gwen is set for adventures beyond imagination! A were-terrier, a swinging ’60s ghost and a pack of paintball blasting vampires complete the cast of I, ZOMBIE.
Written by World Fantasy Award finalist Chris Roberson (CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE) with art by Eisner Award-winning superstar artist Michael Allred (X-Statix, Madman), I, ZOMBIE is a monster of a tale with razor-sharp prose and powerful pop artistry.
