    I love this series and I can't seem to say it enough. It is a perfect drama/thriller/horror/sci-fi story, taking just the right amounts of each genre and recreating them. This series has been so intense, while taking a slower pace and I consistently get goosebumps when reading each issue. #4 continues the greatness and after this point I think everyone should feel comfortable and settle in to this series.

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Oct 29, 2012

    The story is taking twist after twist, but not too much that the reader could lose track. So many possible ways it could go, so I am looking forward to the next issue. I have my theories, but I'm keeping them to myself. Good, solid artwork all the way through, especially the creature. So another 9/10 for issue #4. Read Full Review

    It is hard to review this book and not give away the story. It just has to be read to have the effect that it was intended to have upon the reader. Therefore this month and this month only I am not going to give any spoilers, be it major or minor. However next month I am going to start giving some small spoilers so pick this up. Also, considering the time of year, this is a really fitting series to start to get in to. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 24, 2012

    The art by Mike Norton is the same great quality we have come to expect. Lots of detail, especially when it comes to the aforementioned gut spilling. This is character driven though and Norton gives the characters' expressions and emotions lots of heft. It looks great. Mark Englert's color work adds to the books dull, snowy grey look. Revival is a book to keep your eye on. Wherever it's going, it's someplace awesome. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 23, 2012

    Despite all this, the plot is still running thick in Revival. Nothing is given away easily, and the creepy alien/ghost/monster makes another appearance, something the talented artists keep to a minimum to ensure the maximum effect. With things looking to kick off, it seems the next few issues might just start delivering some answers; yet if there is one thing Revival is good at, its teasing as much as possible to keep the reader invested; something its definitely achieved.

    Comics Crux - Jessica Tarnate May 10, 2013

    Revival continues to be one of my favorite current horror comics out there. The story reminds me of True Blood because of the various plotlines and supernatural/horror elements. Thankfully, unlike True Blood, its consistently well-written, refreshing and less silly. As long as this rural noir doesnt get lost in its own tangled storylines, and as long as it doesnt take too long to wrap up character story arcs, Revival has the potential to be one of the best zombie comics out there.

    If you thought the zombie genre was dead, its not. Tim Seeley and Mike Norton have found a way to breathe life into it while commenting on social issues in a non-preachy way. Revival is worth checking out even if you dont like zombie stories. Read Full Review

    Mike Nortons art is a little more consistent, however. While nothing is exceptional here, he does a good job of telling the story, and his character work is definitely his strongpoint. His art does a great job of conveying the emotions obvious and subtle of the characters, and he can handle gore when it comes down to it. That said, Im still not a huge fan of his ghost, but then again, maybe thats just me. Read Full Review
