I rarely buy any Vertigo singles because I love to wait for the trades. Vertigo is my trade King. After reading this, though, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to wait. It's like taking the best of the horror creatures and throwing them into a Twin Peaks style community.
Although it also reminds me a bit of True Blood in its opening issue, but there's enough bizzareness in this book to make me want to come back. And as much as the main heroine is interesting with some serious potential, I'm already sold on Spot. I can't wait to get his origin!
Michael Allerd's art was a nice compliment to the story as well. Some of the dialogue was a bit corney between Gwen and Ellie but it was corney in a rather fun way, I thought.
I'm not afraid to say this: This first issue of iZombie was better than every issue so far of the Walking Dead. It's just that great! (That one was for you Old Man. I miss you and I loved you like an older brother, pal)
My Score: 10
