    Revival #8 is the next best issue in a series where each issue becomes the best issue. Any reader who enjoys deep characterization should be able to look past the slow pace and get completely engrossed with the story. There is so much going on, a big growing conflict, and yet Seeley and Norton manage to put such deep focus on characterization. They're juggling a big story, and where they could easily drop the ball, they've shown that the complex story is not too much for them to handle. Read this series, for Pete's sake! READ IT!

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 20, 2013

    With this week’s reviews I’ve been talking a lot about the “top five books currently being published” and it should not come as a surprise that this title is one of those books. Hell I have to force myself to stop recapping the issue because otherwise I would just drone on and on; the worst part is that I barely made it to the half-way point and forced myself to leave out a slew of details in order to get there. This issue in a way marks the next story arc and with that you should do yourself a favor and get this issue and then buy the trade or digital copies of the series in order to catch up. Seriously, I wish I had just five more pages each time or a bunch of money to give you a copy. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Mar 21, 2013

    Writer Tim Seeley is truly stepping up his game in the latest issue of the "rural noir" supernatural thriller, Revival. The prior seven issues may have moved at a slower pace, but that's not to say that the story hasn't been entertaining. The beauty of Seeley's title is that he focuses on character development so well, allowing the multiple subplots involved in the mystery of Wausau's revivers to each play a pivotal and equally interesting role in the story.

    Comicosity - Maxwell Majernik Mar 20, 2013

    Tim Seeley and Mike Norton are doing something special with Revival. Issue #8 was a set up issue for what we should expect in the future of the book. As long they let every interesting plot line they introduced have a moment to shine and take their time, then the next eight issues will make a lot of “Best of 2013″ lists. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Julius Freeman Mar 20, 2013

    Theres something genuinely creepy about this story. You have the religious fanatics who claim to be Christ-like which is eerie in of itself; you have body parts smuggled in and out of Wasau County; the Mayor finds his wife throwing up blood in their bathroom; and a glowing fetus-looking-creature appeared out of nowhere in this issue. I dont know how the story began, but Im hooked. Its right up my alley. Will I now start reading Revival? Yes. I cant wait to read what will happen next, but first I need to read the first eight issues to find out just what exactly is going on. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Mar 20, 2013

    In short, this is still a good issue. Whilst plenty of content is never a truly bad thing, its something should perhaps be explored or broken down more effectively in the future; sometimes Revival just feels like one of these titles or settings where no-one seems to be the good guy.

    So, more questions, and still no answers. We'll just have to see if they are going to ask to many questions before the fans give up, but so far I'm not sure that's going to happen. I am more intrigued with every issue, and can't wait for next month. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - GeorgeShunick Mar 25, 2013

    Revival is still an excellent series. This just isnt one of its more exciting entries. A necessary read if youre following the comic, but this isnt a good place to start if youre not. Read Full Review

    Continues building the story, but isn't particularly eventful as a single issue.
