Disney to Reboot "The Rocketeer" With Black Female Lead
All it took was a television adaptation for iZombie fans to get a statue of protagonist Gwen Dylan, designed by series artist Michael Allred. Revealed this morning by TV Guide, the DC Collectibles sculpture by Phil Ramirez is about 9.25 inches tall; it goes on sale in November for $99.95.
The statue doesn’t much resemble actress Rose McIver, who plays the lead in The CW’s upcoming supernatural procedural, but some might argue that the show doesn’t much resemble the Vertigo series by Allred and Chris Roberson.
Premiering at midseason, the drama follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (not Gwen Dylan), a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job at the coroner’s office so she can have easy access to the brains she reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. But with each one she eats, she retains the corpse’s memories, leading her to team with the medical examiner and a police detective to solve murder cases to silence the voices in her head.
