Holiday Gift Guide: Comics banner

Sleigh bells ring are you listening? In the lane, something’s glistening, a beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, because we’ve got some comic book gift suggestions! That’s right guys and geeks, “The Hench” and “The Fac3” have reunited (and it feels so good!) for the sole purpose of giving all of your crazed souls a nice long list of comic books for everyone on your holiday gift list. This one’s going to be hefty, so make sure to pull out that list of folks you’re giving gifts to this holiday season, compare it with our list of all of this year’s top releases, and give Santa a head’s up on what everyone should be getting. Speaking of “should be getting,” should we be getting this list started? Yes. Yes, we should. Also, speaking for “The Face,” I’m pretty sure you could also get these for us. I’m just saying…

GoD List Halloween

Each and every week, I, “Count Chocula” Henchman21, and “Boo Berry” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 30, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

It’s Halloween, kiddies which means it’s time for us to bring you a list full of creepy tales to keep you entertained on a dark and stormy night. Or maybe you’re not into the whole horror thing and you just want to keep up with your favorite superheroes. Fortunately, we’ve got something for everyone today. So go out and pick up some comics, and if you’re got a little extra money and plan on handing out candy to the neighborhood kids, consider buying some cheap kid friendly issues out of the quarter bins and hand those out along with the candy. It’s better than handing out floss or pennies or anything that isn’t candy. If there’s one thing we don’t recommend, it’s getting your house egged because you let down all those trick or treaters. So, go out, have fun, stay safe, and enjoy comics with this extra scary edition of The GoD List!

Comic Review: Revival #7

Revival #7Revival #7
Story by Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Edited by 4 Star Studios
Design by Sean Dove
Cover by Jenny Frison
Image Comics
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!

Revival #5Revival #5
Written by Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Edited by Four Star Studios
Design by Sean Dove
Cover by Jenny Frison
Image Comics
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.

Image Comics: Revival #1Revival #1
Written by Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Image Comics
Release Date: July 11, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

It’s not many comics that literally take you to another place when you open them up to read them, but this, is definitely one of them. You quickly forget where you are in the “real world” and are transported to a small town in frosty Wisconsin, where everything is not as quiet and peaceful as it seems from a bird’s eye view.

Writer Tim Seeley really hits his “suspense” stride in the writing of this book. We know he can write horror, but this book solidifies that he can do more. WAY more. I really hate to compare comics to other media, but this book has a really great Twin Peaks vibe to it. There’s the main mystery, but every place you go, every corner you turn, and every character you meet, more and more mystery and plot twists are revealed. By the end of the book, there are several plot threads that you’re interested in. Seeley weaves all of these together flawlessly and naturally, making for a great read.
