After the devastating terrorist attack, Wausau adjusts its strategy of dealing with the “undead.” Now, confined to “relocation camps” for the security of the living, Revivers must learn to live with each other, as Dana and Em adjust to new lives.
I was mesmerized by the beautiful cover".. The art by Laiso is flawless with the facial expressions are distinct with emotions and captivating. The mood is similar to 24 and is paced very well for a single issue.Although this story is based around the Revivers (and the book is called Revival) there was no major emphasis on the un-dead, this is not another Zombie story which is a treat. The characters and the story carry this book. Read Full Review
Revival has brought a lot to the table, and promised a lot more. I'm excited to see where we go and what can happen in the next (hopefully) 30+ issues. Since its inception, we've grown to really care for the characters. So much so, the death of May Tao was a legitimate shock. But now we get to see where these characters go and how they react when everything has changed. Read Full Review
Things escalated quickly in the last issue of REVIVAL with tragic consequences for many of the series' main characters and this month, things aren't slowing down. The town of Wausau, Wisconsin is recovering from the bomb detonation triggered by Mrs Dillisch, the mayor's wife and while the mastermind behind this heinous crime has seen justice served, new roots of evil are propagating. Cold blooded murderer Blaine Abel has a fan club and these witless rednecks are dubbed as HUNTERS OF THE BEAST. General Louise Cale arranges a meeting to gear up the manhunt of Abel and her introduction is finely epitomized in the almost splash page that is dedicated to her. The bombing has generated attention from the already news-hungry media and the first two pages present a plethora of different panels representing the current fiasco. Despite being a big fan of Mike Norton, I couldn't be happier to have Emilio Laiso filling in the art duties. His page layouts manifest sheer brilliance and the end result is a perfectly executed comic book. Sorrow, pain, gravity, confidence, hatred - all these emotions are justly reflected through his mastery of pencils and inks. Another feather in the cap for Tim Seeley and company.
