iZombie Vol. 1: Dead to the World
iZombie Vol. 1: Dead to the World | Chris Roberson
Told from a female zombies 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 fulfi ll the dead persons 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.

About 2 years ago, I read an izombie comic from library for a book challenge. When thinking about the #zombie prompt on #scaryscavengerhunt, I wanted to read more. Got this one from hoopla, then looked at my library yesterday to figure out which one I‘ve read. I had read the 2nd, so now that I‘ve read the 1st, things make a lot more sense. Pretty good comic. Already knew the show is completely different. @Clwojick #scarathlon #teamslaughter

Clwojick I still havent seen the show, but i love these GNs 4w

This was a really fun graphic novel and I‘ll probably read more of them; I liked the artwork and concepts, and it was funny!! Why haven‘t I read it before?
There were all sorts of monsters (including both zombies and vampires plus ghosts). And it‘s set in the PNW. Bonus points from me for that.

Clwojick This is a fun little series. Have you seen the show? 1mo
Jesstifies @Clwojick Yes! Watched the whole show, I really liked it actually. A little silly, but my favorite kind of silly. I‘m a huge Major fan. Also love that the show is set in Seattle (where I‘m at). I haven‘t read the comics though, seems like there will be notable differences from the show, which will fun. Worried it might be boring if it was 1:1. (edited) 1mo
Scochrane26 The show is basically only borrowing the name from the comics. Both are good though. 1mo

The TV show IZombie is one of my favorites so when I saw it was inspired by this comic/graphic novel series I decided to check it out. The first thing you learn is they aren't very much alike at all but that made it interesting to read. The second stand out thing about this IZombie is that the art work is incredible! I will definitely have to check out the rest of the volumes of IZombie when I can.

I love this show so I decided to read the comics. The show is completely different from the comic but I‘m ok with that. I enjoy Both and I like the differences.

Loving our graphic novel selection here at my library! I really enjoyed this story and the art in this one. I have watched all the seasons of IZombie and love the concept. I was surprised that this story was about a completely different zombie. But it was nice to have a fresh story that was not spoiled for me by already watching the tv series.

Book: Tagged - I‘ve never read the comic, but loved the TV show!
Movie: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (never read the book, but loved the movie 😂)
Song: Zombie by Cranberries

I‘m actually a big wimp when it comes to zombies. It‘s the one monster that freaks me out. I can‘t watch walking dead or anything like that.

This was a fresh take on zombies and how they act and eat brains. I also liked the art style and colors. This gives me a good idea of how the show will be since I've wanted to watch it for a while!

PenguinInFlight I had no idea this was a graphic novel! I‘ve been watching the show and liked it. ☺️ 1y
hermyknee I loved this and I love the show, but the graphic novels are pretty different from the show and follow a different main character 1y
Skyrimir I LOVE this series. I have all the comics. Just be prepared for the show to be pretty different! I like both though. I need to catch up on the recent season on Netflix! 1y

This is sort of book related. iZombie returns for season 4 on February 26. I saw several posts related to this and the comics over the last few days. 🙂

Gwen Dylan is a zombie.
When she eats a brain (Don‘t worry she steals them from corpses not the living) she takes on the memories and personality traits of the person, including any skills they had such as painting! She has inhuman strength and speed, and is pretty hard to kill, so basically immortal.

I prefer the TV show (ME/Police and grittier. Yay Liv!) but the main zombie traits remain the same ☺️

I have an objection to how iZombie dresses librarians. 👿😤 #librariansofLitsy

Seekingtardis But the dead librarian was very sexy! 😂😂 I love romance writer Liv! 2y
LibrarianRyan @Seekingtardis dead she was fine. Living she's was milk-toast. And dowdy. Both librarians were. And then the second librarian who complained about romance/erotic being drivel. Plus. Do you know how hard it is to knock over shelves. And the minute you push it hard enough to make a should you hear it. 2y

I probably would have enjoyed this more if I wasn't already in love with the TV show, which bears little-to-no resemblance. But I did really dig the art style! Also to the right you'll observe the fur of the wild Winky-cat. #catsoflitsy

WarpedSweetness I'm in love with the t.v. show too. I've been wanting to read the comics, but afraid too because of those same things. 2y

I'm a very character-driven reader, so I had a lot of books come to mind when I saw today's prompt. These are just a few of the most interesting characters on my "read" shelf.

DeeLew I love iZombie, the tv series! When is it coming back on?? It has been off for so long! 3y
Bookzombie @MMenefee Ravi is only in the TV series so far. The characters are different in the comic, even Liv. Her name is Gwen in the comic. @DeeLew I just saw that it's been confirmed to return April 4th, 2017! That's a long wait. ☹️ 3y

Finally purchased the comics!
The illustrations are beautiful, and there are so many different supernatural characters. I find the idea of a human sized were-terrier hard to wrap my head around though! 🐶

A clever twist on the mega-popular Zombie theme. I loved the incorporation of other supernatural creatures as well - including a were-terrier!
