“I have a hard time with the supernatural in my mind . . . I’m into 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, World War Z, where there’s a virus and the stuff we’re faking is science as opposed to the curse of the mummy where they’re coming up from the underground. I know we’re using dorky fake science, but it grounds it in a way.” – iZombie co-creator Rob Thomas on what sets the show apart from its comic book origins.
On a related note, Mitchel Clow touches on the series’ similarities and differences with other zombie vehicles.
