The Answer #4 is a perfect ending to this great mini-series. It’s got everything you’d want. Except answers. No, not THAT Answer, it’s got plenty of him.

Dennis Hopeless turns in another great script from a story by himself and Mike Norton. Up until this point, things have been a little confusing about just what’s going on with The Answer, Devin, Chip, and the rest of the cast. In this issue, everything you thought you know gets turned on it’s ear. We get explanations and more importantly, more questions. It’s a great issue with some razor sharp dialogue, some great action, even more great mysteries and some classic humor.

While The Answer! #3 doesn’t really answer any questions (It actually brings up more questions), it’s a damn fine entertaining comic nonetheless.

Dennis Hopeless and Mike Norton have really done what they’ve set out to do: entertain me. Sure, along the way they’ll also entertain thousands of other people, but that’s just gravy. In this third chapter of the I wish it wasn’t a mini-series, all hell breaks loose as we go inside the pretty scary place where all the smart people work. But, who better to save her then The Answer? Of course, he’s got to save himself first, which may be easier said than done. This comic book is just plain FUN. Remember what that was like? When “fun” wasn’t a dirty word in the comics industry. Well, it shouldn’t be and that’s what this book is. From cover to cover, you’re going to do nothing but smile and be entertained at just how awesome The Answer is!

Revival #7Revival #7
Story by Tim Seeley

Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Edited by 4 Star Studios
Design by Sean Dove
Cover by Jenny Frison

Release Date: February 20, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

After reading the last issue, I didn’t think Revival #7 could get any creepier. All right, I was wrong. WAY wrong.

Writer Tim Seeley does a great job of rewarding long-time readers, and that’s something that’s pretty rare in current comic writing. Yes, anyone coming into this issue might be a little confused at first, but they should be caught up and into the story by about the first third of the book. In this issue we get some pay off to a storyline that’s been running since the beginning and, of course, we get a couple more mysteries thrown into out faces out of left field. One of the things that I love the most is that Seeley is an artist himself, and he knows how to write for an artist. Sure, it’s an artist that’s sitting in the same studio with him, but I really think that’s a huge plus for the overall entertainment value of the book. This issue is packed with some great suspenseful moments, ones that you just don’t get in comics right now. Thankfully, they’re not the kind of “chainsaw busting through someone’s skull” moments, they’re more the “who’s behind that door” moments. Although, don’t get me wrong, there is PLENTY of gore for anyone who’s looking for it. PLENTY.

Comics really don’t get more weird than Revival #6. And I mean that in a GOOD way. From cover to cover, the mysteries only deepen this issue, and, I’m enjoying it so much, that I don’t care that we haven’t had any of them solved yet!

Thank you Tim Seeley!!! This issue is, by far, my favorite issue yet of this series. What should frustrate me, doesn’t. I’m a big mystery buff, and by six chapters in we logically should start getting some clues to just what’s going on, but we haven’t (OK, we probably have, but just don’t know it) and that’s FINE because this book is so damned entertaining!!! Things keep happening! Shocking things! Scary things! Strange things! But, it’s SO good that you really do just end up getting lost in this comic rather than trying to figure out just what they hell happened, who did it, and how it’s all going to be revealed. This is a VERY entertaining comic book, folks. In my opinion, the best issue of Revival so far!

After reading The Answer #1, I have more questions than when I started. Thankfully, one of the questions that I do NOT have is “will this book be entertaining enough to hold my interest?”

Dennis Hopeless and Mike Norton create a fun, entertaining, creative, and interesting universe in this premiere issue to the 4-issue limited series. The book opens with a flash forward to the end of the issue, and honestly, that almost NEVER works for me, except it did here, because, for once, you can’t figure thing out 3 pages into the book and the scene is more of a flash forward to the last few pages then to the ending. I’m a bigger fan of the books heroine, Devin, than I thought I’d be. She is the typical “nerd girl,” but she’s written SO well that I found her both interesting and endearing. I think my only problem with this book, comes in the amount of panels that The Answer actually appears in. Hopefully, in future issues, he’ll be in more. The character itself is VERY fun and a could be a new superhero archetype. But, we’ll have to figure him out, first.
