Story by Chris Roberson
Art by: Mike Allred
"My old life was over, so I started a new one."
Gwen seems like your average girl at first, works a 9 to 5 kind of job as a grave digger with a crew but she's obviously hiding some secrets from everyone. It's a quirky idea, having a smart zombie who still holds on to to concept of life and doesn't crave brains 24/7. You surround her with other unique takes on classic horror concepts like a retro ghost, Scott aka Spot the weredog, mysterious creatures hunters who may be attached to her past life and a vampire who is up to know good.
Each new character is introduced with only just a few pages each but it's easy to be interested in each one. There are seveal plot threads being juggled at once like the hints of Gwen's previous life as well as Ellie's. Not to mention the consequences of Gwen's brain eating activities which will seem to feed the over all series.
Mike's art is as strong as ever and I really get the sense that they have a ton of issues already in the bag before the release. I really loved his take on Spot the weredog and i'll be curious to see more of the character in the coming issues.
All in all this is a good looking book with an attractive main character and supporting cast.
Over all score: 8.5
