“A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste.”
One of the most striking covers I’ve seen this year! Gwen’s face front and center on the cover both soothes and terrifies us, and of course, it’s captured by Allred’s signature pop sensibilities perfectly. Great work Mike, and I’m really looking forward to this.
Also, don’t miss the (freaky!) I, Zombi prequel online at Vertigo’s blog, Graphic Content:

Gwen Dylan is a gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery…and a zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain – both to keep from going all “Night of the Living Dead,” and to keep her own memories intact. As a result, Gwen’s mind is crowded with the dead person’s thoughts. And lately, she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests. Torn between a mysterious mummy and a dashing young monster-hunter, Gwen is set for adventures beyond imagination! A were-terrier, a swinging ’60s ghost and a pack of paintball blasting vampires complete the cast of I, ZOMBIE.
Written by World Fantasy Award finalist Chris Roberson (CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE) with art by Eisner Award-winning superstar artist Michael Allred (X-Statix, Madman), I, ZOMBIE is a monster of a tale with razor-sharp prose and powerful pop artistry.
