Revival is written by Tim Seeley with art from Mike Norton and published by Image Comics.

The characters at the head of the story are sisters Officer Dana Cypress and Martha “Em” Cypress.  In a small town in rural Wisconsin, there has suddenly been this revival of the dead.  No one knows why and strange things are happening to some that have come back to life.  Revival captivates you from the very beginning and cinches the reader from a cliffhanger at the end of the first issue – Em is one of the revivers.  Due to this strange phenomenon the government has quarantined the town to prevent it from spreading and the CDC has come in to try to get a grasp on what’s going on.

The art is absolutely stunning and unique in emphasizing the suspenseful story.  Revival is not your typical zombie story as the dead that have risen vary between those that aren’t so responsive to those that “seem” very much like they were before “Revival Day,” or are they?

There is a lot unknown about these revivers, but so far I’m intrigued to find out more.  Dana is scrambling to search for the cause, while keeping an eye on her sister.

HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone that enjoys a good mysterous zombie-esque story.  The characters are all interesting with a depth not yet revealed, but insinuated in its existance.  Revivers are out and about, hidden and revealed.  Demons are wandering around in search of something.  Revival is an enthralling twist on the “zombie” premise and guaranteed to keep you wanting more.
