With this week’s announcement that iZombie is coming to an end with #28, my worries about this book slowing down too much have been relieved. With only 5 issues left to finish off his story, Roberson has to make everything count, and although this one was a flashback, it did provide a lot of important information about Xitalu, how to stop it and why exactly Horatio turned all green last month. Agent Kennedy has been around the book for a while and in this issue we finally get to see her origin, which was cool, it’s always good to see the wacky stuff that Roberson comes up with for the Dead Presidents. I love fictional bands, so the idea of ‘Ghost Dance’ really appealed to me, and the mythology that Roberson built around them was really cool. It was good to find out that Horatio hadn’t been turned evil, but is actually possessed by the spirit that opposes Xitalu, Strider, it should be interesting to see how that plays out in the end-game. Jim Rugg’s artwork was awesome too, an excellent fill-in for Allred. A good issue, and one that hopefully signifies that the ending of iZombie will make up for a meandering middle.
