Television shows have been really picking up steam over the last year as only months ago we added “The Flash” and “Contstantine” to the mix for DC Comics small screen world and now their Vertigo title “iZombie” is getting its turn. Check out the poster and the premise which I copied from the official Wikipedia entry and then we can discuss it a little bit.
Premise: Olivia “Liv” Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out, until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. Afterward, she became part zombie. She works at a coroner’s office to give her access to the brains she must eat to survive. A side effect of her new diet is the ability to absorb the memories of the deceased, which helps her solve homicides. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I have never ever read a single issue of “iZombie”. It looked interesting but I have been so caught up with the numerous changes and different storylines in DC’s other “New 52” stuff I have had my hands full in terms of books. That being said I found the trailer to be a lot of fun so I will be setting my DVR on record so I can check it out.
