The CW Network continues to strengthen its comic book themed line up with iZombie. iZombie was a title from the Vertigo line which has been adapted for TV by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) and Diane Ruggiero-Wright. The show follows a medical resident (Rose McIver) who becomes a zombie and takes a job at a coroner’s office so that she can consume the brains of John and Jane Doe corpses. The cover is short lived and her secret is found out by her boss. There is a twist in this zombie themed police procedural in that the zombified main character is able to retain a portion of the memories from the brains she consumes. So we go from medical student to undead coroner’s assistant to crime solving zombie assistant? It is definitely a weird concept but when it comes to the Vertigo line this is definitely not a surprise. We’ll see how well the concept is embraced by both comic fans and zombie fans.
