A brand new Image Comics ongoing series where the dead walk and talk like nothing happened, Tim Seeley and Mike Norton's "Revival" brings the chills and haunts of small town America into frightening focus.

All week long, readers of the Robot 6 blog have been getting a tease into the strange and slightly horrific event about to overtake the quiet town of Wausau, WI. Today, at Emerald City Comicon, the morbid yet animated articles shown there had their full purpose come to light with the announcement of "Revival" -a new Rural Noir regular series by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton starting in July from Image Comics.


The "Penny Saver" ads and news clippings hinting at the return of the dead in a decidedly different way than, say, a zombie tale are only the tip of the iceberg for the book. When the dead walk and try to resume their own lives, the residents of Wausau must also confront mysterious specters, religious crises and many more creepy thrills.

CBR News spoke with studiomates Seeley and Norton about the origins of "Revival," what the ads hint about the book's tone and story, how they're collaborating closer than ever before and why the long-game mysteries of the book should prove to unnerve readers at the same time as the small town whose story they're telling.
