Revival #3 sells out, gets new printing
The third issue of the hit, Revival, has sold out the same day as its release and will go back to press. The second printing will be in stores on October 24, the same day that Revival #4 goes on sale. The third printing of Revival #1 and the second printing of #2 have also sold out and will be reprinted as well, also with an October 24 in-store date.
A “rural noir” by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton, with covers by Jenny Frison, Revival explores the ramifications of the dead returning to life in a small Wisconsin town. Seemingly unchanged, the “revivers” return to their lives, but in time it becomes clear that something is missing from who they used to be. Police officer Dana Cypress is assigned to investigate the revival phenomenon, only to discover that it affects her more closely than she thought.
Along with in-a-flash sellouts, Revival has been garnering wide praise for its nuanced take on death and horror.
Seeley and Norton are prolific comics creators. In addition to Revival, Seeley writes his Image series HACK/SLASH, a twist on the slasher genre in which a would-be victim instead hunts down serial killers, and Top Cow’s flagship title Witchblade. Eisner winner Norton has been charming readers with his art in the spin-off of Michael Allred’s MADMAN, It Girl and the Atomics, also published by Image Comics.
