Check out iZombie's awesome opening titles sequence, designed by Mike Allred

The CW has unveiled the cool opening titles sequence for its upcoming iZombie TV show, based on the Vertigo comics. As a nifty bit of connection to the source material, it uses the art of Michael Allred, Madman creator, Silver Surfer artist extraordinaire and the guy responsible for the look of the iZombie comic.

The CW series, developed by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, may be a loose adaptation of the comics, but this fun main title sequence does a very nice job of finding a way to unite the two together in a colorful, comic-booky manner. Have a look:

Here's what Thomas told last summer, at San Diego Comic-Con, about the upcoming series:

“I think what we carried over was the big idea of the comic book which is this woman in her mid-20s becomes a functioning zombie and when she eats brains she inherits the memories. Even in the comic book she tries to solve these outstanding issues of the dead and we play that in the TV series as well. What I needed was a story mechanism that allowed her to do it every week. I wanted very closed cases and working in the police morgue gave me a dead, murdered body each week which made it easier to adapt as a TV show.”

Starring Rose McIver as Liv, Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babineaux, Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Robert Buckley as Major Lilywhite and David Anders as Blaine DeBeers, iZombie will premiere on The CW on March 17. What did you think of the opening title sequence?
