In iZombie Vol. 2, zombie girl Gwen eats the brain of someone she used to know as a child and finds out some things she forgot about her own life while her were-terrier friend attempts to reconcile with his grandfather. In Whispers Vol. 1, a guy with OCD discovers he can travel in a ghost-like form separate from his body as he sleeps and manipulate people’s thoughts. In Sex Criminals Vol. 2, Jon struggles with his mental health while Suzie struggles to keep her library afloat, all while dealing with the sex cops. Enjoy my mini reviews for these three graphic novels!
iZombie Vol. 2: uVampire by Chris Roberson, Michael Allred
Whispers Vol. 1 by Joshua Luna
Sex Criminals Vol. 2: Two Worlds, One Cop by Matt Fraction, Chip Zdarsky
I didn't find this volume to be as hilarious or as adorable as the first. It was less about the relationship between Suzie and Jon and more about the sex cops conflict. I know there has to be some sort of action in the story, it can't just be two people having sex all the time and nothing else, but I guess I found the whole Bonnie and Clyde/bank robbing thing of the first volume more interesting. But it still made me laugh, sometimes because of the characters and sometimes because of the hilarious details in the background. I definitely recommend taking the time to read the posters, porno movie titles, sections of the bookstore, etc. I especially loved the "Salad Cake" restaurant that was behind Jon when he was in the food court. One of the menus was "salads made out of cake" and the other was "cakes made out of salad" lol. The book also delved a little more into Jon's mental illnesses, so it also had a bit of heaviness. Overall, not bad, just not something that blew me away.
*I've read this book multiple times. This review was written after my 2nd read.*
