iZombie #5

Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Michael Allred

This issue finishes the introductory arc of I, Zombie (or is it iZombie? - the cover and the indicia disagree on this), and I am now definitely sticking with this title for the long haul (even if Allred moves on at some point).

With this month's chapter, Amon and Gwen finish their conversation, and Amon makes an offer off-screen.  After that, Gwen runs in to Horatio again, and they sort of have a date, until she realizes just who he works for.  The vampire paintball girls start to look for revenge for their killed comrade, and Spot and his friend go out for coffee.

I, Zombie is a nice mix of character-driven plot and fantastic Michael Allred art.  I've really taken a liking to a number of these characters, and look forward to seeing what's in store for Gwen and her friends.
