Chris Roberson Talks iZombie TV Show And The Future Of The Comic Book

IZombie_promotional_posterIan Melton reported back after talking to comic creators at Rose City Comic Con last weekend. Including Chris Roberson, creator of the Vertigo series iZombie.

He tells us,

Chris Roberson has gotten to see the iZombie pilot and likes it.
"As my wife puts it I view the iZombie TV series as the Earth 2 version of those characters."

Things got rather fractious between Roberson and DC Comics over his statements regarding the publication of Before Watchmen, seeing Roberson fired off the Fairest comic for Vertigo as a result.

He is happy and gets along well right now with West Coast DC people such as Geoff Johns and he doesn't yet know whether or not the new TV series will lead to more iZcomic books or not.
"The people working on the TV show do know the comics though, they are using them on set, and the make-up people have them as reference material…"
