    Allred gets to take the snippets of zombie killing action that he's been getting to enjoy and turn it up to 11 here. The issue culminates in an all-out gorefest, the likes of which haven't been seen in iZombie. I enjoyed this approach, particularly because with so many zombie books on the shelf these days, seeing a hoard of undead descending upon a crowd has lost its basic appeal. But with Roberson and Allred taking 16 issues to introduce us to the cast and the world they live in, seeing them surrounded by zombies holds a much greater weight to it. The creative team has hit just the right note that exists somewhere between hipster quirk and genuine character drama. Read Full Review

    This series really tantalizes with its possibilities. I LOVE the art and enjoy many of the concepts, but too often it is like trying to drink from a fire-hose with the way the story is presented. It's entirely possible this is a series that will read better in collected form. Read Full Review
