iZombie #22

Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Michael Allred

Lately each issue of this comic has really just been more of the same.  That's not necessarily a bad thing - iZombie is a pretty cool comic, and it's been remarkably consistent throughout its run, especially for the last year or so.

Gwen is freed from the custody of the Dead Presidents by Horatio, who loves her.  Scott's boyfriend is looking for him, and ends up interrupting his grandfather (who is in a chimpanzee's body) at dinner with diner matron Dixie (about whose past we are given another clue).  Scott, meanwhile, is still a prisoner of Amon, who is also hosting a summit between the Fossor monster-hunters and the Dead Presidents, a group of government agents who are also monsters.

The book moves very quickly, and since there are so many characters, and each needs their moment or two in the spotlight, it often feels like not a whole lot has happened in each individual comic.

Michael Allred is back after last month's hiatus (covered by J. Bone).  Allred was originally the draw that got me to read the book, and it's always nice to see his wonderful art.
