Tim Seeley’s and Mike Norton’s Revival series is a brand new take on the zombie genre. In the Wausau district of Wisconsin, the dead are rising from the grave. However, instead of mindless corpses, the people have been resurrected with their original personalities. The local townspeople call them Revivers. With the entire district quarantined by the federal government, a young police officer and single mother named Dana Cypress are investigating the murder of her sister, Martha, who is a Reviver. Through Dana’s eyes, the comic branches into all walks of life within the quarantined area, with everyone trying to deal with this new phenomenon.
