    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 21, 2013

    At the very least you should get this issue because Doom Tree is in it. What's crazier is that Doom Tree has come up on my shuffle twice since I started writing this review. That's beyond awesome in my book. Seriously though, if you've been missing out on this series then you need to pick it up. For my money it's the best thing that Image is publishing. That's right I would put it up against any other series, new or old and I think it would come out on top (at least in my book). This is a great issue to begin with if you haven't check it out yet. Sure you're going to miss a bit of the history, but like I said each story arc only covers a few days at a time meaning we're all in this for the long haul. There's plenty of mystery left in this series as it continues to find new ways to improve and amaze. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Rainbow Red Panda Aug 22, 2013

    Image definitely picked a winner with this series. Tim Seeley and Mike Norton are proving to be an unstoppable force in the comic world. Will anyone step up to try and take down this dynamic duo? Somehow I doubt it. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Aug 21, 2013

    The artwork by Mike Norton is very good as well. His character stuff is very strong with how he makes everyone look, move, and show emotion. He also draws some rather good creepy images and some interesting scenes, like this odd flashback that occurs in the middle of the issue. The rest of his work and other art, like the coloring to the backgrounds, are just fine. It isn't stuff that'll shock or amaze you, but its art that fits in perfectly fine with what the story is.

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Aug 21, 2013

    REVIVAL is still my favorite horror title on shelves right now, with its simple, Midwestern charm and inventive approach to the undead. Every character is distinctive, and they all feel like someone you know (particularly if you've ever spent any time in a small town), so it's incredibly easy to become personally invested in their stories. It's a title that seems to read best in trade at the moment, with an abundance of character development and subplotting that tends to make single issues feel slow or lacking in action, but the story as a whole is immersive, interesting, and beautifully executed.

    My same issues still stand with this issue as they do for other issues. Reading ‘Revival' from issue to issue is difficult. There are a lot of characters, some of which aren't important to the plot yet, but will be, and because of that, it's hard to keep track. Though I'm excited to read the next issue, I can't help but long to be reading it in trades where I can keep better track of what's going on. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 23, 2013

    Revival is right up there with the top 10-15 titles in comics, so hop on the reviver train if you haven't yet. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Aug 21, 2013

    That said, well crafted art, rock solid character work and one of the best covers of the week? Definitely gets a buy rating, but the potential for more clarity in events (besides Joe fading away probably, as I'm sure that will be a big focus going forward) kept this issue at a lower level for me.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Aug 20, 2013

    In short, it's safe to say I'm not a fan. It has a few elements that are likable, but for an entire issue this seems like a waste of a month. It's more a side project than anything else; maybe it would be more enjoyable sold as such. Read Full Review
