Good. Get ready for iZombie #7, part 1 of "Vampires Suck." Hungry, zombie girl Gwen dines on the grey matter of a person who knew her as a child-–and things quickly get complicated… Meanwhile, ghost-girl Ellie learns a few tricks from Amon the mummy, Spot the were-terrier goes to the comic shop and meets someone from Gwen's past, the mad scientist Galatea engages in a bit of grave-robbing, and the monster-hunters tackle the town's vampire problem once and for all.
Spot, the were-terrier is a mild-mannered computer technician by day, under a full moon he transforms into a monster with the lusts and appetites of a well-behaved house pet! But who is he really, and what is his connection to Mister Chimps? Here, at long last, the amazing secret origin of Spot is revealed, in a story that just had to be called "I, Were-Terrier"!
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?
