Previously in Revival #1:
“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 a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.”
Revival 2, first I have to say the cover is quite humorous in my opinion and of course, the artwork and details are well done. I love how the priest (who: Spoiler- later we find out is really just a fraud) is nonchalantly drinking an, what I’ll assume is a “victory beer” while standing over his “revived” client with a cross. Guessing by the restraints on her wrists and feet and the cross in hand, this is an exorcist of sorts that didn’t work out (of course, when do they ever really work out?). We later find out what really happened and the situation in whole is pretty humorous. The artist Craig Thompson did a lovely job creating this cover and it made me giddy to turn the pages and see what happened here.
ALSO! Newsflash! I don’t remember if there’s a soundtrack for volume 1 but I suggest checking out the neat soundtrack for volume 2! It’s listed on the credits page but you can also find it here: http://sonomorti.bandcamp.com . It’s the perfect soundtrack to listen to while reading the book; too bad more comic books don’t do this kind of thing? Or do they and I’ve just been in the dark until just a moment ago!? Anyhoo I give the soundtrack 2 rotting thumbs up.
Ok back to the book; we get to see a nice amount of action, more questions and fewer answers about what is really going on under the surface of the story, and there’s a nice bit of humor balanced with the drama and blood. It’s a nice follow up to volume #1 and keeps your interests and it makes me look forward to the next one and seeing how the story unfolds and more about these “revived” folks.
I give Revival #2 4 "sucker punched" Sheep

Revival of the week: Ding! Ding! Ding! It’s a lucky girl, it’s psycho granny from volume #1!! She was so wonderful at dying not once, not twice, but now three times if my math serves me right! She clearly has the smile only a sightless person could love.
