Overview

iZombie Vol. 4: Repossession by Chris Roberson, Michael Allred

Told from a female zombie's perspective, I, ZOMBIE is a smart, witty detective series with a mix of urban fantasy and romantic dramedy. Gwendolyn "Gwen" Dylan is a 20-something gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery. Once a month she must eat a human brain to keep from losing her memories, but in the process she becomes consumed with the thoughts and personality of the dead person until she eats the next brain. She sets out to fulfill the dead person's last request, solve a crime, or right a wrong.

Once upon a time, Gwen's biggest concerns were finding a brain to snack on and worrying whether her boyfriend would find out she was a zombie. Now, with undead secret agents and monster hunters teaming up to stop a mad scientist from bringing about the end of the world, and her friends stuck right in the middle of it, Gwen has bigger problems on her hands. But can a girl help save the world without losing everything in the world she loves?

OK I liked Vol. 1 and ; then 3 started to wander off and lose my interest I had to sort of force myself to start on this one - so I could finish the series It was wacky still but the wack stopped working for me The best character interactions were barely touched The whole apocalypse was sort of corny And the imagined demons and conflict were sort of a flash back to 80s art but not in a good way The fresh idea of a sentient zombie was not enough to get through the final slogging volume Disappointing

I hope this isn't what Roberson had planned originally. I remember reading about differences between him and DC and I hope that's why the ending of the series is such a disappointment. Besides being extremely rushed, convoluted, and complex it also loses so much of its original flavor. The idea that Gwen wold help solves issues from beyond grave, so to speak, was the original hook. That utterly disappears into this giant potluck of ideas. Allred kills the art again but unfortunately the story itself is the let down. Sad the series ended on this note.
