iZombie, Vol. 3: Six Feet Under and Rising Reviews

    This collected volume of iZombie issues kicked things up a notch. There is a whole lot of back story on the characters we know as well as a whole bunch of new characters introduced. If you have liked the series so far, you should continue to enjoy it with this volume.Another great thing about this series is how wildly creative it is. It continues to impress with storylines that include just about every classic monster you know and love. Including a variety means that, even though "zombie" is in the title, and even if zombies aren't your thing, you should be able to find something in here to suit your monstrous interests.Finally . . . A moment of silence. It seems very appropriate that I happened to finish this on the day of George Romero's death. Romero is the father of the modern zombie movement. Without Romero and his classics Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, etc., I don't think we would see things the iZombie, The Walking Dead, and other pop-zombie culture be so widespread and popular right now.Rest in Peace . . . and, if you come back from the dead, this brain is on me!

    I took a completely different attitude towards iZombie while entering into the third volume, and this change of mind level paid off very well when it was combined with a stronger, much more developing volume compared to the previous ones.This time I felt as if there is a bigger and ongoing storyline behind all the lightness, fluffiness and young adult material that can by itself be an entertaining experience but not always the kind you are eager to jump back in to get yourself some more of the goodie-goodie.It is always a problematic situation when you are happy to see a lot of development, but at the same time you are crowded with many different kinds of strings such as zombies, vampires, love triangles, mummies, ghosts, were-somethings, mad scientists, different government organizations, and all kinds of conspiracy possibilities that do give the much desired story-bang yet makes you feel it to be little too much at a time.As much as I felt this to be the best volume so far, I also recognize the reality of this series being cancelled and the next, and the last, volume being the very much forced "too early"-ending. In that light, Six Feet Under and Rising doesn't hold tight but by itself is a nice reminder of comics world where one volume, or the second or the third or the fourth, doesn't always tell and seal the quality of the rest.

    3.5 starsAlso reviewed for Addicted2HeroinesI'm still enjoying this, but the new car smell is starting to wear off just a bit.However, since there's a possible tv show pending for iZombie, I'm interested in seeing how the comics play out.'Cause nothing is more irritating than that person who continually says, "But that's not how it was in the boooook...". My husband finds it exceptionally annoying. So, naturally, I must be that person.It's the little things that keep a marriage spicy!I will say volume 3 has the forward moving plot that the last volume was missing.It starts off with the gang having already solved a Scooby-Doo-like mystery, and patting themselves on the back for a job well done.Gwen runs off to see Horatio (who still has no idea he's in love with a zombie), and lovey-dovey stuff happens.I liked the introduction of the Dead Presidents, a group of monster hunting government agents...made up of monsters, and led by Abe Lincoln.The lead agent is a zombie, so it looks like Gwen isn't the only undead chick that isn't a shambling wreck. Guess we'll have to wait for the next volume to see how all that plays out, though.The main plot revolves around the sudden appearance of hundreds of mindless zombies, who have apparently been trapped in a cavern underground. Poor Scott is actually the one who discovers them when he accidentally falls into a sinkhole. And being trapped with a group of hungry corpses makes him think...and the first person he thinks of is Gwen's hot brother. Hmmm. Is he potentially a gay were-terrier?Gwen and Horatio rush to his rescue, and in the aftermath, there's a battle between the Foundation's monster hunters and the Dead President's monster monster hunters. And uneasy truce gets called so that they can both fight the zombies, but during the confrontation Gwen gets outed as a zombie.Will Horatio be able to look past her undead status?Galaeta, the Paintball Vampires, and Scott's grandpa (Mr. Chimp) all show up again, which was nice.I was excited that Amon played a significant role in this volume. His past is more heavily entwined with Gwen's than previously thought. The BIG REVEAL at the end was quite a shocker, and makes me curious to find out what happens next.My biggest problem with this?There are about 500 hanging plot threads, and nothing resembling a resolution for any of them.I usually love the introduction of new mysteries, but not when the old ones are still sitting there unsolved. Something, anything, needs to get tied up.I'm not really known for my patience, and it's starting to wear a little thin with iZombie.

    Looks like things are finally coming together. It took the introduction of yet another category of oddly supernatural people to get the ball rolling. I'm not quite sold on the Dead Presidents yet, though they are appealingly weird enough to fit in with the rest of the cast. But there's only one more volume after this, and I'm getting concerned about how all of these many, many plot threads will get wrapped up.

    Yay! This book had SO much more action than the last volume. All the backstories are starting to come into play, and everyone's paths are starting to cross. The Dead Presidents made so much more sense now that they are also in Oregon. I am totally digging this series!

    [Review for the entire series] Though nothing like the show (which is better, let's be real), this is a fun world with (mostly) interesting -- if derivative -- characters. The first volume struggled a bit to find its footing, and then end struggled to stay there, but there are some interesting moments in the art and a solid backstory to explain the WHY of everything, which you don't always get in supernatural stories. There's a convenience to some things that didn't sit well with me, and I wish they'd dug a bit more into the conflicts and made it all a bit meatier*, the series was a pleasant bit of mindless* fun, and it's neat to see where the story for the show came from, and where it has gone.Oh, and sidenote: what is with the boobs?! Everybody has braless torpedo boobs in this, I just. . . why?*there's a zombie joke in there, somewhere.

    Okay, so kind of scared to see how rushed and less good than this and the previous two that #4 will be. It's kind of inevitable, at least in my opinion. I mean with this many dangling plot threads, what else could possibly happen?I really enjoyed the twist with Amon and Gwen's memories, etc. Also, WTF was up with Gavin in that one scene? Still not quite sure what happened... Spot cornered by zombies (who now apparently overrun the tunnels underneath Gwen's cemetary), saved by Gwen and Horatio, only to have the zombies terrorizing the streets of Eugene, Oregon!!! Also, there's the little matter of the Dead Presidents who have been sent to clean up the situation (a team of U.S. govt. sanctioned monsters, led by an undead Lincoln!). I also liked the way that the Paintball Vampire ladies tied into the rest of the story in this one. Probably my least favorite plotline was the thing with Galatea, whom you'd think would know better than to attempt what she's doing. After all, her own creation didn't turn out the way that the guy who created her intended, did it?

    Okay, I'm on a roll with these comic books. LOL. But seriously, this story is SO COOL. Just when you think you know where things are going, it takes an unexpected turn. Love that!Everything is going well for Gwen and Horatio. Then it isn't. I mean, there are so many things happening at once, and a bunch of secrets are coming out that could turn the world upside down. Amon is keeping more secrets than suspected. Ellie is quite the detective. Scott is starting to realise something about himself. And his grandfather cracks me up! Gavin is in big trouble. Big trouble. :/ And the vamps are, uh, recruiting.Oh. And I love the introduction of The Dead Presidents. I'm intrigued. They're so kick-ass! I'm really enjoying this action-packed story, this expanding world and the very colourful characters. The artwork is awesome and pretty. And THAT ending! o_O BTW, I LOVED Vampire Queen of the Amazon. Soooooo gooooood.Can't wait to see what happens next. One volume to go!

    The fun, humourous, offbeat series continues! Different plotlines evolve and converge, revelations abound, mysteries deepen and the new characters - The Dead Presidents - are a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the series' conclusion in iZombie, Vol. 4: Repossession, and I can't wait to see how everything works out for the different characters, the good ones and the bad.

    Mad scientist, vēl viena mednieku organizācija un īsta zombiju apokalipse pilsētā. Secināju, ka noskaņa man atgādina kādreiz skatītās TMNT multenes, bet ar visu to kaudzi, kas šajā vienā nelielajā komiksu sērijā ir salikta, nerodas sajūta, ka būtu par daudz. Viss salikums ir gana interesants un labs, tāpēc arī netraucē tas, ka viss jau kaut kur ir redzēts. Lasot šo ir sajūta, ka tas vienkārši ir tāds foršs un ne pārāk nopietns paralēlais visums daudziem jau zināmiem stāstiem, bet man pārāk patīk, lai es par to satrauktos un piekasītos katram sīkumam.

    Not sure what to think of this one. I enjoyed the gentle pace and small town setting of the first two volumes, but suddenly there are warring secret government agencies, a Russian zombie carrying a mad scientist's brain in a jar, a ghostly superhero possessing the body of a main character, side trips to Rio and a zombie apocalypse to boot. It feels like too much, too soon. Still lots of fun though.

    I have totally changed my tune on this series. It's absolutely great. Scooby-Doo meets The Munsters meets Mod Squad. I dunno, or something. It's freakin' lush and adorbs, is what it is. Kay.

    iZombie seriously ups its game in Volume three. Falling and Rising are amazing books, and the Dead Presidents are must read. There was so much going on in these issues that I had to basically read everything twice, and I loved every minute of it. Things are going much deeper than I anticipated, and I'm really excited for the final volume.

    So far, I've liked this volume the most!I like the development between Gwen and Amon, Spot, the Dead Presidents. All of it!!As seen previously, awesome art.

    After a previous volume that was light on plot, here we start to get into the thick of things. Zombies are invading Eugene, Oregon, secret societies--including a government-affiliated monster team led by Abraham Lincoln--are fighting each other as they try to save the city, and some sort of ageless necromancer is working to bring a cosmic horror into our dimension.So plotting isn't a problem. And writer Chris Roberson keeps the gag level suitably high, even as artist Mike Allred captures all the ghouls and ghosts in his signature style (although the art is constrained somewhat by all the empty rooms and underground caverns we get as settings).It's welcome to see all the pieces come together, but this volume moves too far from the character-driven exploration of the "monster" theme that was such a success in the first trade. Here it's all about piling up the developments, and I have to wonder if the timetable was rushed along by the demands of the marketplace. It's decent enough, with plenty of promising ideas, but the humor and characterization suffers with the pace. I'm hoping the series can find the right balance for each element as it wraps up in volume four.

    "You see, Eugene, (OR), is special…" Apparently, in a similar way that Sunnydale was. I think this comic is emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer.There are zombies, (every issue), a mummy (every issue), ghosts (every issue), were-dogs and werewolves (dogs in every issue, wolves,- almost every issue), and more monsters each time! There's even a government organization, V.E.I.L., of dead presidents! Protecting our country, of course, and another organization of monster hunters, The Fossor Corporation, called Fossors or "gravediggers", to which, Gwen's new boyfriend, Horatio, belongs.But how long will he be with Gwen? Especially once he finds out she's a Revenant/Zombie? (And HOW can't he tell?? "Love is blind" only goes so far…Back to "Eugene is special".. The "walls" are thin, letting some of the gravity go and letting monsters of all kinds in.This series is the beginning of the tv series, but it's only loosely, very loosely, based on this series. In some ways, the tv show is MUCH better.

    I didn't care for the artistic fill-in at the end of the collection, nor did I care for the dangling Gavin development. Overall, though, a fun book that keeps getting better/ weirder. I know Roberson has now left DC, but I can't help but think a Roberson/ Allred Doom Patrol would have been pretty swell.

    Now things really get moving. Stereotypical zombies start to appear everywhere, we meet the Dead Presidents group, save Scott from the catacombs and Gwen starts to remember how she became a zombie. Lots of action.

    This was fun but not as entertaining as the previous issues, it felt dragged at times and that's saying something since graphic novels are usually super fast-paced.

    Ese volumen tiene más acción (y vísceras) que los dos volúmenes anteriores, que hizo (hicieron) que me gustase más. Necesito saber que sucede con Ellie y con Mr Chimp lol

  • Erica

    I enjoyed this one a little more than the second installment; the artwok wasn't quite as wonky and the story is leading to something less Scooby-Doo and a bit more serious, bigger-picture.

  • Nuno Gil Franco

    This third volume takes the pace of the second one and kicks it up a little, introducing the Dead Presidents and some more backstory. Once more, Allred's art is superb and really fits the book.

    I don't have a lot of nice things to say about this volume. I'm glad the action picked up and I want to know how the story ends, but there were several eye roll moments that completely took me out of the story. First, Horatio's fight scenes just like completely ridiculous. Second, the part where Gwen says, "I should be freaked out right now but holding onto Horatio makes it all better!" made me gag. Seriously girl you're a zombie! You're a bad ass crime solving grave digger, what is with the damsel in distress bit?? And last but not least, the top less, big breasted blonde vampire in the bonus story at the end. Are you serious? Could the writers be more of a cliche? I might stick around for the last novel, but we'll see.

    Nella saga di izombie subentrano i presidenti morti, ovvero un gruppo di mostri piuttosto potenti, usati come agenti segreti dal governo USA. Inutile dire che i mostri non sono molto ben visti dagli scavafosse. Se si aggiunge l'inevitabile rivelazione, per Horation, che Gwen è uno zombie, ecco che la storia inizia a complicarsi. Per non parlare del ruolo di Amon nella zombificazione della stessa Gwen. Insomma, un capitolo denso di svolte di trama, per il soltio, divertente iZombie. Con i disegni di Allred che, come sempre, sono una spanna sopra degli altri disegnatori della serie (vedere l'ultimo capitolo a firma Stephens).

    It's hard to come up with new things to say about these comics. The art style is still really nice. I like the colors and all the tones that can come across. I enjoy the progression of the story and how it leaves some things in suspense. I like the slow reveals and the shocking surprises. The climax was a bit of a cluster, but I think it was supposed to feel that way with all that was going on. It felt rushed because it was a fast-paced situation.I can't really think of anything I dislike about the comics so far. I'm looking forward to seeing where they're going with the story next.

    Sooo.... That escalated quickly. A final battle emerges out of nowhere, and government agents decend to quell a monstrous threat. Gwen has relationship issues and yeah, everything ties together.I'll admit... The plot is really silly. Though I don't think that was the point.... Maybe iZombie was always meant to be a character piece. More silly and personal than substantial. I like it. Though with a light heart with the occasional monster battle.....Also there's zombie Abraham Lincoln.
