This Wisconsin-set ‘farm noir’ puts a twist on the zombie genre that makes it the perfect read for fans of Fargo, Twin Peaks, The Walking Dead, and Six Feet Under

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/22/2024 — The beloved, New York Times bestselling series Revival—by fan-favorite writer Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Bloodshot), Eisner Award winning artist Mike Norton (Battlepug, Voltron), and colorist Mark Englert (Invincible, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) with lettering by Crank!—will be collected in its entirety into one complete compendium paperback edition this September. This Revival Compendium will feature hauntingly beautiful cover art by Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman) and be available from Image Comics.

It will include Revival issues #1-47 of the Harvey Award nominated series, plus the Free Comic Book Day Revival short story, the Revival/Chew crossover one-shot, a Frison cover art gallery, and many additional behind-the-scenes bonuses and special content.

Revival first launched at Image in 2012 and took the industry by storm with multiple sell-outs and reprints, a bevy of award nominations, and critical accolades that shot the title to the top of the sales charts. The Revival series has since sold over 1 million copies across all formats and continues to be one of Image’s most reordered backlist titles today.

"When we created Revival we always saw it as one, massive self-contained story with a beginning, middle and end," said Seeley. "So we're really happy to release it as one, massive self-contained volume in the Image Compendium series, joining a bunch of classic must-read titles."

In Revival, 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 Cypress must solve the brutal murder of her own sister. Now everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect, while Em Cypress, murder victim, keeps getting in Dana's way.

Norton added: “Revival is a book near and dear to my heart. I super excited for this collection to come out so a whole new audience can read it!”

Revival Compendium trade paperback (ISBN: 9781534389168) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, September 11 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo on Tuesday, September 24.

Select praise for Revival:

“A chilling “rural noir”—a supernatural saga grounded in the economic and familial realities of small-town life. Norton’s art is wonderfully specific and evocative of the rural Midwest—and often shockingly gruesome.” —Slate Book Review

“Seeley (Witchblade, Bloodstrike) and Norton (Battlepug) craft moods and story themes equally inspired by Elmore Leonard prose and Coen brothers small-town crime flicks.” —USA Today

“At first read of the book's description, you may think Revival is yet another zombie comic… but writer Tim Seeley has a different take on the dead coming back to life… Seeley refers to Revival as ‘rural noir,’ which perhaps gives you a hint that he's looking to tell a story that's less about horror film plot devices and more about the characters and the complicated choices they make. The cold, Midwestern setting also brings to mind the Coen Brothers' modern crime noir Fargo.” —Mental Floss

Revival’s brilliance lies in how it focuses just as much on the emotional drama surrounding the revivals as in the effective horror set pieces it creates. Like the best TV, the world only becomes more defined and the story richer with each new installment.” —Paste
