Official iZombie #8 Thread
I hereby and forthwith confer upon myself the ability to make official threads!
My three favourite things, in an issue I really enjoyed:
1. Opens on nudity! Always a plus
2. The panel where Gwen's hair is blowing while she's on the swing: this was one of the most kinetic drawings I've ever seen in comics. It reminded me of one of the kids from Smashing Pumpkins' "1979" music video, with the camera attached to them so that you don't see them moving, just the background behind them.
3. There's a close-up of Gwen's glove in one panel, and for some reason, I just really enjoyed the combination of Mike's feathering and the deep blue colours on it. Really stood out for some reason, and reminded me of staring at the highlights in Veronica Lodge's hair as a kid reading Archie comics.
Other things I liked:
-the fight scene was a lot of fun, for some reason (I'm not normally a fan of them)
-Chris' writing strikes me as better the more in-depth he's allowed to go, and we're really reaping some more dividends here after a lot of buildup.
-Reading the comic while drinking absynthe while my wife and I watch old Dark Shadows episodes on dvd the night before her birthday is probably my new favourite way to read iZombie (and might partially
account for how I noticed 2 and 3 above). I should see if I can get her to have another birthday next month, because that was just a fun, singular experience of enjoying some fine comics.
-that wonderful cover! Where does he get those wonderful covers?
