    I could say the comic took me by surprise again, but I shouldn't have been surprised that I would be surprised. The last two issues made my jaw drop, and with the events in #3 climaxing in the final pages, I literally had goosebumps. Now, I hate to be that over enthusiastic fan. I would love to give some form of criticism to the story telling, but I just can't find anything. This story is so well written and so engrossing that I just can't say anything other than if you're not already picking up this series you definitely should rethink that trip to the comic shop you just made. Turn around and go back. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 19, 2012

    Let’s be honest, there are rave reviews for this series. So many that perhaps this one will fall on deaf ears that are already sold on the product and no longer need a review to convince them to read a series. Maybe though there are some hold outs that still need a reason on why this series is worth picking up. I’ll go back to the “game changer” statement from the beginning of the review; are there any comics that can truly change comics as a whole? I hope so actually. I hope that someone reading this is going to try and create their own story with multiple layers and parallel plot lines; with its mystery to rival Twin Peaks, but with the end game of Lost. Maybe someone will read this review and have their eyes opened to all of the other elements in play that were sitting below the surface of the story staring them in the face. Either way, I hope that you buy the book and enjoy it as much as I do. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Sep 26, 2012

    It's no secret that Image has been pumping out outstanding titles for a long while now and I don't think it's too soon to add Revival to the list. With dynamic action and dialogue, a story that balances action and dialogue, and art that can hold its own against any Big Two title. Seeley and Norton have a book that should keep gathering fans every issue, while picking up awards along the way. Revival #3 keeps this series going strong and earns all 5 of the stars.

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Sep 21, 2012

    All told, there's a lot of neat stuff going on in this issue, and while it doesn't have the capital-A Awesome factor of the first two there's still plenty to enjoy. It's always a pleasure to see creators taking a moment to let character development come to the fore, and when the development is as credible and well thought out as this, it barely feels like a break. That said, I think we're all ready for another bout of Reviver action in issue #4, and to learning a little more about the phenomenon that's taken hold of Wausau. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Sep 19, 2012

    Mike Norton's art is solid stuff. His characters express emotion and mood. You can see the pain and the horror. There are no show-stopping panels in this book, but its also doesn't have a single bad page. It all flows well and adds to the great package that is Revival. If you're looking for a book that's a little outside of the box, check out Revival. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Sep 18, 2012

    In short, Revival #3 is a great issue. It gets things going properly, building on a lot of the plots and themes established. At any rate, the next few issues look to be intriguing; although Revival is a series that currently likes to set the questions, not answer them. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jose Camacho Sep 24, 2012

    The label "rural noir" isn't big enough to adequately describe this series. We have big questions such as: why are some of the dead coming back? What is causing some of these revivers to be violent? What is that white creature? As well as small details that enriches the series. So far, Tim Seeley and Mike Norton have shown us that it will be your money's worth to see where the quest for answers will take you. This rural noir is ready for the big screen. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Sep 18, 2012

    For some reason this series reminds me of X-Files, it gives you just a peek of the wizard behind the curtain and just when you think you’ll have some answers, it slams the door in your face with more questions. Read Full Review
