REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house. The second issue of Home Sick Pilots from Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard takes a surprising turn as it defies the expectations of a haunted house story established in its debut. Issue one was a stellar debut that had a lot of energy from its young protago

'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.
