'Revival, Vol. 5: Gathering of Waters' by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton is the continuation of the complicated zombie story. I had heard a lot about it, but this was my first foray into it.
Revival day has happened in a rural Wisconsin town. The dead have come back to life and the town has been quarantined. The living are in with the Revivers. It's complicated because the revived are recently deceased love ones. A police officer is trying to figure out what is going on and a Reviver has found out she's pregnant. Along with that, we learn that the waters that the revived have come from are thawing and there are new species of revived. The final confrontation in the courthouse sets things up for future issues.
I like the story and characters. I like the concept. The returned are complex and intelligent, not just mindless eating machines. The plot seems set up for the long haul with ongoing complex stories. I love Mike Norton's art. Now I have to go back and catch up!
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
