'iZOMBIE: The Complete Third Season' Gets a DVD Release Date with Bonus Materials

In what is arguably the show's best season yet, Warner Bros Home Entertainment has announced the release date for iZOMBIE: The Complete Third Season on DVD. On October 3, 2017, you can grab your copy of CW's hit horror comedy starring Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders, and Aly Michalka.

Based on DC Comics' Vertigo comic by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, iZombie has garnered a loyal fanbase resulting in nearly two million viewers a week. Liv (McIver) continues to solve weekly murder mysterious by eating a victim's brain resulting in taking on some eclectic personalities like a dominatrix, an office gossip, a pre-school teacher, and more. It's afforded the versatile McIver some of her best performances during the series that are funny and smart. Now that Goodwin's Detective Clive Babineaux is on Liv's secret as a zombie, it's elevated the dynamics between them as crime-fighting partners. This has led to some hilarious reactions as the straight-man to McIver's wild card brain-influenced Liv. 

The season-long investigation of the murder of a zombie family close to Clive leads Ravi (Kohli) to a group of conspiracy theorists who want to expose the existence of zombies and lead a militia against them. This larger investigation has allowed the supporting cast to tie-in in broader ways while giving them compelling subplots. Major (Buckley) joins a military contractor made of zombies looking to protect zombie-kind if and when they're exposed and threatened. Things get a little complicated when Major returns to human. Peyton's (Michalka) relationships with Ravi and Blaine (Anders) get resolved while her legal case might reveal more than meets the eye. It's a lot a fan can sink their teeth into and the DVD set promises to include more features to enjoy. 

"After three strong seasons, iZombie continues to have ravenous fans who are always hungry for more" said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. "We think the loyal fan base will be very pleased with the special features and the 13 visionary episodes from season three."

There's still three more episodes to season 3 with "Conspiracy Weary" airing tonight, Tuesday 13, 2017, that finds Liv and Blaine coming to the rescue, the consumption of conspiracy theorist-brain, and Ravi makes a startling discovery. 'iZombie' has been a refreshing addition to the multitude of comic book-based adaptations on television. It seamlessly mixes comedy, horror, and drama into an hour of satisfying entertainment. Take a look at this sneak peek of tonight's episode below. 


SYNOPSIS: “Conspiracy Weary” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14) SEND IN THE CAVALRY – Liv (Rose McIver) and Blaine (David Anders) come to the rescue of one of their own. They consume the brains of a conspiracy theorist and paranoia ensues. Meanwhile, as they continue to search for conspiracy theories that may or may not exist, Liv researches Major’s (Robert Buckley) new friend. Finally, Ravi (Rahul Kohli) makes a surprising discovery of his own. Malcolm Goodwin and Aly Michalka also star. The episode was written by Bob Dearden and Directed by Mark Piznarski (#311).

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

The Best Comics of 2017

It's that time of year again. What comics site is complete without an obligatory "Best of 2017" list? No doubt it's been a crazy year in so many ways and the comic book industry is no different. But instead of concentrating on the scandals and controversies all that matters is the fruit of so many talented peoples' labor who've produced some amazing stories. These are just some of the best independent comics of 2017.


DISCLAIMER: [Editor's Note] Spartantown relies on the generosity of independent comic book publishers to provide review copies in order to post reviews. Thanks to companies like Image Comics, Valiant Entertainment, Archie Comics, Dynamite Comics, Black Mask Studios, Action Lab, and occasionally others, I've had access to some wonderful stories that otherwise I would have missed. I don't get review copies from mainstream publishers like DC Comics and Marvel so this "Best of..." list is far from comprehensive but a good sample …
