You can have two favorite comics, right?

Revival, Vol. 1: You're Among Friends - Mark Englert, Mike Norton, Tim Seeley

In the foreward of this first volume of Revival, Jeff Lemire writes:


You can only discover your favorite new comic once, so savor it.


And I'm thinking, "Dude, I read Saga." What beats that, right?


Well, nothing, but Revival matches it in its own way. Though it might sound like a zombie comic, it is very, very much not, and in a way that is very good (say more than that would mean so many spoilers). The only mark against it (and incidentally, the same mark the first volume of Saga got) is an unnecessary use of the r-word. Otherwise it would be five stars.
