Unless zombie gravedigger Gwen Dylan eats a dead person's brain once a month, she loses her memories. The trouble is, for the week following a feeding, she shares her head with the dead person's final thoughts and has to complete any unfinished business they've left behind. In this case, it involves solving the murder of "Dead Fred." Meanwhile, Gwen's friend Spot is finding it increasingly difficult to keep his secret life as a were-terrier from his coworkers

    It's hard to tell if I'm simply being biased because I love the Allreds' work so much. So we're clear, I love the art and colors. I do have to say that I am intrigued with the story and Gwen's character. It's a great feeling being at a series at the beginning. We basically have this new comic world that we get to see for the first time. We get to discover the secrets of the characters and their surroundings with each issue. The idea that these different "creatures" exist in a seemingly normal world is cool. It's a good balance between the real and supernatural. We have the two guys trying to catch a nest of vampires, we have Gwen and Ellie trying to find out what's going on at that evil guy's house and we have Gwen dealing with the memory flashes of the last person's brains she had to eat. I just have a fun time while reading this comic. I love this little world that we're seeing and I easily get pulled in with each issue. For me, it's rates at the top for fun factor.

    The tone is fun, the situations fraught with peril, and Roberson gives these characters strong personalities through their dialogue in this issue. I've stuck with this series just for Allred's art, but now I'm interested in what happens next -- and how. "I, Zombie" is turning into another quality Vertigo series, by the looks of things.

    It's hard for me to really bad-mouth this series though because I love the characters, I love the concept, I love the world, and I love the art, but as of right now, Roberson's storytelling is holding this series back. Read Full Review
