Comic Book Easter Eggs – iZombie Brain Recipe Puns

In this feature, I share with you comic book related “easter eggs.” An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ’em all out and enjoy! Also, click here for an archive of all the easter eggs featured so far! If you want to suggest an easter egg for a future column, e-mail me at (do not post your suggestion in the comments section!).

On the CW show, iZombie, based on the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred comic book series by the same name, the main character, Olivia “Liv” Moore (who happens to be a zombie), eats a different murdered person’s brain every week. She then gets visions of their life and helps solve their murder. She also takes on their strongest personality traits. Brains, as you might imagine, do not taste that good, so Liv prepares them differently each week to mask their taste.

Well, in Season 2 especially (but I bet even in Season 1, to some extent), the brain recipes she uses tie into the person whose brain she is eating, in funny, often pun-driven ways.

Of the 17 episodes so far, I’m sure every one of them has SOME pun connected to the brains, but some of them are fairly light in the pun department (like for the episode where she eats a frat bro’s brain, she prepares it in nachos) and some of them I just don’t understand (I can’t piece together how a brain omelet ties in to a basketball coach). Here, then, are eight ones that I liked and that I know for sure were intended as puns…

In “”Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues,” Liv eats the brains of a country singer/songwriter. She prepares them by country pan frying them…

In “Max Wager,” Liv eats the brain of a compulsive gambler. She prepares them as part of clams casino…

In “Hurt Stalker,” Liv eats the brain of a stalker. She prepares them as part of a celery snack (a STALK of celery)…

In “Cape Town”, Liv eats the brain of a costume vigilante. She prepares them as part of a hero sandwich…
