This was a pretty average comic week. I tried getting into Wonder Woman after seeing the film. I returned to Revival which is written by one of my favourite authors. And I tried the Batgirl reboot within a reboot.
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. The sell-out hit series created by NYT Bestselling author TIM SEELEY and Eisner winning artist MIKE NORTON is collected with bonus material!

So I decided to try returning to Revivial and in all honesty I don’t know why no one talks about this series especially with how big The Walking Dead is. This is such an interesting series if not all that unique in premise. It does it in quite a cool and brutal way but the writing and art really makes it a must read.
Wonder Woman is still meh to me. I went to see the film and enjoyed it enough but I’ve never been the biggest fan of her comics. Whenever I read it all I want to do is pick up a Rick Riordan book…. That said, if you are interested in the film please try the comics!
Batgirl is incredible. I loved this reboot and re-imagining. It was just such a good story and it really open up the comic field in terms of diversity and representation to me. The best part about this inclusion is that it’s so common place and just written normally. It isn’t forced or shoved down your throat to show how good it is. I honesty think it’s close to comparable to Ms Marvel bar the main protagonist. The artwork is astounding, I think this is some of the most beautiful comic style in any comics I’ve read. (Nothing beats Rob Guillory). I HIGHLY recommend this.
Please talk to me about comics!
