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!

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.

Revival #5Revival #5
Written by Tim Seeley

Letters by Crank!
Edited by Four Star Studios
Design by Sean Dove
Cover by Jenny Frison

Release Date: November 21, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Revival #5 continues the mystery in that small town of Wausau, Wisconsin. Usually comics with an ongoing mystery lose their momentum around the fifth or sixth issue, if they don’t offer a huge reveal. Does Revival escape that trap, or does is jump over it? Let’s take a look…

Writer Tim Seeley goes outside the box with this issue, and this series in general. What starts off as a mystery in a small town of people coming back from the dead, turns into a LOT more than just that. It’s really turned into a story of basic human survival and with some great characters that we’ve quickly come to love and care about. One of the things that impresses me most is one of the “b plots” that focuses on the officials at the CDC and the drama that’s going on in their lives. Not to be outdone at all, the main focus of the issue is the conflict between EM, a reporter named May and the evil Blaine Abel. There is a great deal of both action and story development in this issue. Seeley keeps revealing just enough of the mystery to keep us turning the pages, but not enough to reveal anything too quickly. Very well written issue.

Moon Lake
Volume 1
CREATED BY: Dan Fogler
WRITTEN BY:Dan Fogler, Brian Holguin, Stef Hutchinson, Blake Leibel, Tim Seeley, R.H. Stavis, Nick Tapalansky
ILLUSTRATED BY: Brooke Allen, Tommy Castillo, Jim Daly, Alex Eckman-Lawn, Mark Englert, Josh Finney, Lizzy John, Scott Newman, Kat Rocha, Robbi Rodriguez, Jeffrey Zornow

PRICE: $19.99
RELEASE DATE: November 30, 2010

As far as comic books go I’m not quite as knowledgeable as many of our other fine reviewers here at Geeks of Doom, but I do like to work on that whenever I get the opportunity. So when the chance to check out a wild and wacky comic from actor Dan Fogler called Moon Lake came around, I was excited to take a peek.

The comic is a collection of short stories, and when I say “wild and wacky” I truly mean it. These stories are completely vulgar and graphic and oozing immaturity, and that can only mean one thing: comedic gold.

From sex-frenzied monkey-peoples at a sex-frenzied summer camp the week before kids arrive to werebears and psycho-killer cheerleaders stuck in a sunshine and rainbows dreamland to a warrior woman and a dinosaur — they’re all in here.
