iZombie #25 (No way is a career in comics worth this Spoiler

I’m shocked this book is still coming out, what with all the Roberson controversy that’s been raging all over the internet. But it’s good that we’re at least going to get the full iZombie story told as it was intended. This issue was mainly a naked ghost Gwen and Amon floating above the town as Amon reveals the true nature of Xitalu, who we finally get a good look at in all of his Lovecraftian glory. We also checked in on all of the other characters, including Horatio-as-Strider and Spot, and saw were they’re all at before the ‘final battle’. Allred’s art was fantastic as usual, although why did the naked Gwen and Amon not have nipples? This is a Vertigo comic so there should be nudity! It was also cool that, even though there’s only a few issues left, Roberson still took time out to show us Dixie’s origin, just because it’s the end of the world doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun.

because Allered is mormon. Nudity isn't allowed.

I liked the fact that we learned that Dixie used to be a monster slayer in her younger days. I also agree that it was good to finally get a good view of what Xitalu looks like. Overall though, while this issue was OK, it wasn't my favourite issue of this series. It seemed more like a moving of chess pieces to where they need to be for the story's end than anything else. It was a needed chapter if not a very exciting one.

Speculation as to why it's still coming out- Allred is a co-creator/owner- vertigo/dc doesn't want to alienate him by not releasing it. Also, Vertigo's trade business on the series would be wrecked if it doesn't get a full run out.
