In the search for Dead Fred's killer, Gwen Dylan has learned more than she bargained for and discovers that she's been wrong about a great many things. Now she finds herself faced with a choice: risk losing all that she is, or become a real monster. As if that weren't enough, a confrontation with one of the fearless monster hunters leads in unexpected directions. And what about Spot the were-terrier, Ellie the ghost-girl, and Claire the vampire?
I was asked on one of the Vertigo panels at SDCC the other week why it is I write about female protagonists so often, and the answer is simple, really. It’s because I have the tastes and interests of an eight year old girl. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll confirm it. (And Nickelodeon’s iCarly really is one of my favorite shows on television.)
After a few months of brain-eating, Gwen Dylan thinks she knows all there is to know about being a zombie. But she's dead wrong. When the mysterious mummy Amon takes her on the "Magical Memory Tour" in iZOMBIE #4, and reveals secrets from Ancient Egypt to modern-day Oregon, Gwen quickly discovers that the world is much, much stranger than she ever imagined. Meanwhile, the monster-hunters close in on Claire the vampire, and Spot the were-terrier deals with the fallout of last issue's startling revelation.
The Witch Queen seems to think that Fig is very important, but the more time they spend together, the more the Witch Queen has her doubts in House of Mystery #28 written by Matt Sturges and artist by Luca Rossi. Plus, this month's short story is illustrated by cover artist Esao Andrews (FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL) and stars the dearly departed Poet.
