i zombie #6 & Metalocalypse Dethklok - two fun new comics!

The newest i zombie (#6) is a really fun self-contained issue that works as a good story unto itself, not requiring anyone to have read any preceding issues and works as a good issue to try i zombie again if you've left the title. I've enjoyed i zombie since the beginning, but it doesn't really have much of the forward momentum that I thought it would. I do think it will read better in collected form, but I'm such a big fan of Michael Allred's art that I do wish i zombie was doing better than it is.

i zombie #6 is titled I, Were-Terrier and is a great origin story / spin off of the werewolf lore. I'd recommend trying out this issue of i zombie and if it does nothing for you, then i zombie just isn't going to be the comic book for you.
Another fun comic that came out yesterday was the first issue of Metalocalypse Dethklok, published by Dark Horse. Dethklok is a very funny Adult Swim cartoon and the comic, like last years, Goon / Dethklok comic, does a great job of bringing the humor of the show to paper. This first issue is self-contained, but I'm happy to report that there'll be three more issues. And Dr. Rockzo, the cocaine-loving clown makes an appearance and I know all of my wonderful Ich Liebe Comics! readers love cocaine-loving clowns!

Actually, there will be two more issues, for three total in this run.

Hopefully there will be more.
