iZombie: The Comic

As a self-proclaimed “nerd”, it’s probably not in my best interest to admit I don’t often read comics. I often enjoy live actions versions of comic books and then read about the stories to understand what any TV show or movie I’m watching. I know, I’m a terrible fan. So, I knew iZombie was based off a comic. I had seen the artwork and have done my own background research, even prior to my employment at iZombie Support Group.

When I finally got my hands on the iZombie comic, I was excited because the show has pretty much risen up the list to my favorite show currently airing on TV. I wasn’t prepared, though; for how much I would actually enjoy our show’s origins.

San Diego Comic Con

It was July 22, 2016. It was San Diego Comic Con. iZombie fans began to crawl out of their hibernation. iZombie Podcast even posted a new bonus episode after their own hiatus. It was a good day to be a Zom and all because it was iZombie’s turn at SDCC during their four day weekend.

SDCC is the nation’s biggest convention next to New York Comic Con and it’s the one where every celebrity shows up to. That included Team Z (except Robert Buckley). In the days preceding, our social media outlets were filled with pictures from the cast of them traveling (mostly by air) and even the news that poor Rahul (Ravi) missed his original flight due to oversleeping.

It was very obvious this year that our small little zombie show has gained quite a following. Having observed what was going on via Twitter, the cast was met with positivity and welcoming kindness. They started by appearing Thursday night at the MTV Fandom Awards, to a cheering crowd.

Interviewing Andre Tricoteux (Chief)

Get ready for a good one, Zoms! I sat down to chat with the actor behind one of my favorite season 2 characters: Andre Tricoteux. Andre plays Chief: Blaine’s silent bodyguard at Shady Plots (funeral home). Appearing for about a second in the first episode of season 2, his character shows up more and more as the episodes progress; as well as developing with each time we see him on screen.

Unfortunately, Chief (*SPOILER*) does meet a tragic end in season 2’s finale, but Andre was nice enough to chat with me about his time on iZombie.
