Say “Hello and holy crap!” to the spiritual successor to The Walking Dead. Time Seeley and Mike Norton’s ‘Revival’ is engrossing, disturbing and leaves you feeling uncomfortable for all the right reasons. The plot is one of those ideas that you’re surprised hasn’t already been done a hundred times, but is enormously refreshing. What if those who come back from the dead aren’t mindless hordes looking for brains to slake their thirst, but rather, more or less the exact same as they were before they died? What effect would it have on their community and the world at large? Feeling both stark and quiet with untouched snow covering the landscape of a Wisconsin community, Norton manages to wonderfully disrupt these moments with jarring imagery and jagged panel boxes. His characters are rich with personality specifically Dana, the recently “promoted” police officer assigned to investigate crimes involving the “revived”. Seeley is laying a very strong foundation with this first issue, building a world small in scope that is being forced to deal with issues universally large filled with everyday characters like small time cops and flirty senior citizens. This series is sure to find a captive audience and I highly recommend it to anyone searching for a blend of Locke & Key, The X-Files and Fargo.
