Spring comic book preview: Astounding Wolf-Man and I, Zombie

Posted By on Tue, Mar 16, 2010 at 3:15 PM

In this week's edition of Creative Loafing, we rolled out our big, fancy-shmancy Spring Guide 2010 — which is designed to let you know the best people, places and things blooming all season. And to coincide with that guide, I offered a few picks for cool comics coming out this spring. I'll be continuing that look at spring comics on this blog all week ... hey, there are a lot of worthwhile books out there. Here's a peak at two upcoming titles:

I, Zombie No. 1: Artist Michael Allred teams with writer Chris Roberson to launch a brand new comic with a cool concept (and I just love cool concepts). According to Previews, the lead character of I, Zombie (Gewn Dylan) is a gravedigger and a zombie-esque type who must eat a human brain once a month to keep from becoming a full-fledged zombie and to keep her own memories intact; as a result, her mind is crowded with dead folks' thoughts — and she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests. See? Cool idea. And with Allred behind the pen, the art is bound to be great.

Astounding Wolf-Man No. 25: Writer Robert Kirkman's horror/superhero comic comes to an end this issue, and — while I never thought the book was perfect — I am interested to see how it all ends (and how he pulls together a ton of dangling plotlines). Kirkman's been dropping hints here and there about the Wolf-Man popping up soon in a new comic. But for now, I'm anxious to enjoy the closing of this particular chapter.

More to come tomorrow ...
