My Boyfriend is a Monster is a series of stand-alone graphic novels united by a premise that is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Each novel centers around a heroine who finds romance with a handsome otherworldly being. The writers and artists vary with each story, apart from Janina Görrissen, who handled the art in both the first and fifth books, and Dan Jolley, who wrote the third and sixth.
Our Zombies Are Different: The plague is caused by a mutation of the real-life parasitic fungus Cordyceps unilateralis, which attacks an ant's brain and causes it to attach itself to the top of a plant before dying, thus helping the fungus to spread its spores. Although this differs from the more-commonly-seen viral origin, the novel's zombies behave like typical Hollywood zombies.
The Determinator: Dicey, who sets out to rescue an increasingly-zombifying Jack, armed with only a baseball bat.
The Men in Black: The agents who come to escort Dicey and Jack out of St. Petersburg. They are definitely good guys though.
Examples from #2 "Made For Each Other":
All Girls Want Bad Boys: Much like Bella, Maria seems to be able to stomach the whole Tom-is-a-monstrous-conglomeration-of-body-parts thing incredibly quickly and never lets it get in the way of her infatuation with him.
Bittersweet Ending: Frank, Tom's father in spirit, is killed trying to save the other creations from a fire. When Tom says, "I've got nothing left," Maria kisses him and says, "You've got me."
Sophie: "This is the 21st century, Maria! You don't have to wait for him to come after you!"
Deadly Prank: Alex and Logan are killed by Hedy while pulling a prank that involves sending a CPR dummy down the falls.
Evil Costume Switch: Hedy starts dressing in goth/punk clothing when she becomes blatantly evil. She also dresses the minions she created this way.
Follow the Leader: The story bears some resemblance to Twilight, particularly the scene where Mr. Graves calls Maria, tells her he's captured her music teacher, and orders her to come to him alone if she wants to save him. Tom of course shows up to rescue her. A strikingly similar scene happens in the first Twilight book.
Frankenstein's Monster: Tom, Hedy, Mr. Graves, and of course the original. They are all super-strong and heal quickly, but are vulnerable to fire and are put into trances by music. They have no memory of their former lives and are essentially new beings created out of old parts.
Man Child: Hedy. She is still fairly smart but has the maturity of a child.
Punny Name: Franklin Stone, Mr. Graves, Tom B. Stone, Hedy Stone (headstone) and Maria McBride, who is in love with a Frankenstein's monster. Byron may also be named after Lord Byron, a friend of Mary Shelley.
Recurring Character: Guidance counselor Gary Barry, who also appears in My Boyfriend Bites and I Date Dead People.
Closed Circle: None of the ghosts can leave the house — everything beyond it is "nothingness" for them, according to Tom.
I See Them Too: At first, Tom makes it seem like it's remarkable that Nora can see him, setting the reader up to believe Nora will be unable to introduce him to her friends. But it seems none of her friends have trouble seeing ghosts, nor does anybody else.
Also, Mr. James the drama teacher, who was an English teacher in My Boyfriend Bites. Nora's dad refers to the "run of bad luck" Mr. James had in New Mexico, and he leaves in a huff after seeing Tom (probably because he's had quite enough of the supernatural already).
