In case you've read this series and thought to yourself, "Man, I sure do wish this was a TV show...only, I wish her name was funnier than Gwen. You know what would be hilarious? If she were actually named Olivia and went by "Liv" because get it? Live? And she's dead? Hahaha! Oh! Oh! Make her last name Moore! Liv Moore! SO hilarious. Also, I wish she had been an anal-retentive, goal-oriented med student before she died so she could come back, all Dead Like Me-style, and get a job where no one would recognize her but not as a gravedigger. I think it would be more awesome and sexy if she worked in a morgue because who wants to see a woman perform manual labor on TV? No one, that's who. And I think they should switch out all the original zany characters for more standard characters because it's far more believable to have a zombie with a neurotic former roommate as a best friend. Who would ever believe a ghost from the '60's as a best friend? No one, that's who. Yeah, I'd like this a lot more if they could just change everything but
the part where there's a zombie who has to be sneaky about eating brains."
Well, then, your wishes have been granted because CW is turning this into a series and it seems to have very little to do with the story in these graphic novels.
So what does it say about me that I find the cover to be awfully romantic? Dude, there's something wrong with me.
The story has come to an end. It's not a surprising end in any way and it's a bit of a cluster, actually. There are just so many storylines that need tying - and they get tied - so many characters who need to be placed in the action at the end, so much going on. I found it flustering and almost silly, especially in light of what was happening.
So, yes, it did turn out to be a grown-up's Scooby-Doo. Am I satisfied with the overall story? Sure. Will I read it again? Probably not.
