Happy Summer, folks! It’s officially June, Summer is here, so of course I thought iZombie, Vol 1: Dead to the World would be a perfect choice to kick off our few months of freedom. This was a group choice actually and turned out to be a perfect “It’s midnight, I’m under the covers with a flashlight” type of read. For this month’s read, we not only read it as a group, but we also hosted a live hangout where we talked about the trade in full detail which I’ll post below. Before that, make sure to check out our review of our pick for last month’s read along, Civil War!
iZombie, Vol. 1: Dead to the World Review
iZombie stars our main character, Gwen, who not only works as a grave digger, but is part zombie as well, due to some unknown circumstances. She lives her life surrounded by the strangest of the strange and nothing is “normal”. If you’re a fan of the hit CW show, than you’ll be in for one wild ride as you take an approach to this series with a brand new pair of eyes. Me (Travis), Meghan, and Summer go into full detail about the first trade below so warning for spoilers ahead!

When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever.
