A Rural Noir Graphic Novel Series
For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it's up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Dana Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.
Why Read It?
Tim Seeley's Revival series is based on the idea of the dead coming back to life, but in a completely different way than we typically see. While Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead focuses on a full-blown apocalypse brought on by hordes of flesh-eating zombies, this series focuses on small amounts of ordinary people inexplicably coming back to life and how the world treats them. While they do suffer in their own way, these "revivers" are fully aware of their surroundings and who they are, and many of them can pass as regular citizens without anyone else knowing. This plot device is what shifts Revival away from being a standard horror graphic novel, pushing it more towards the noire/mystery genre that can appeal to an entirely different audience.
Featuring great artwork and characters you'll come to care about, Revival is a great series to get into if you want a unique take on the otherwise oversaturated zombie horror genre. Simply click on the cover images below to place your requests.
