This issue marks the beginning of the new story "5 Brains, 5 Months," which will play out in "real time" over the course of the coming issues. In May, 2011, zombie girl Gwen and her friends solve a mystery just in time to keep an even more mysterious appointment with Amon, the sexy mummy, while the vampire girls add a new member to their number and the monster hunters prowl the streets. And in the first of a series of backup stories, we meet a group of government agents who will soon be making life very difficult for Gwen and company. But who are the Dead Presidents?

    IGN - May 5, 2011

    Michael Allred continues his phenomenal work on iZombie, after a brief break from issue #12. This time around, he gets to delve more heavily into some classic zombie horror action as we follow Horatio and Diogenes as they blast the holy hell out of some zombies. This issue in particular is interesting, as it's the most "mainstream" that this book has felt since it launched. Allred's layouts are more spanning and action-oriented than we've typically seen, showing less of an alternative comics influence than in past issues. Certainly not a bad thing for some trying out this issue as a jump on point, and this installment remains as gorgeous as every one previous. Read Full Review

    Great, great issue (and series) from a visual standpoint. The story is enjoyable too, but I really don't think it would hurt to streamline some more. It's a shame because all of the story elements are really cool, but it is kinda like drinking out of a fire hose. Read Full Review

    "iZombie" continues to serve up the fun, month in and month out. And be it a "Scooby Doo" parody or a group of secret agency monsters, it delivers just what I'm looking for in a comic. Another great outing from both creators. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew Z. Rios May 9, 2011

    After a year into it, Im just not sure I know the overall point or goal of this book. More and more is added, but less and less of it is pushing the story onward and upward. Hopefully soon these creatures of the night wont be so scared of their own shadow and come out of the dark. Read Full Review
