Image Comics' 'Revival' Live-Action Thriller Gets First Trailer


Shatterglass Films announced during a panel at this past weekend's C2E2 convention in Chicago that they are producing a live-action adaptation of Tim Seeley and Mike Morton's Image Comics series 'Revival.' Fans in attendance were lucky enough to view the first teaser trailer for the production and now you can too.



Synopsis:

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 has 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. 

Bleeding Cool had the exclusive first look and also reported that production is slated to begin in early 2018 with Shatterglass Films co-founder Luke Boyce directing a script co-written by Seeley and Sarah Fischer. Seeley and Morton will also serve as producers.

“I am beyond ecstatic to be bringing this incredible work to life. ‘Revival’ has consistently been one of the best titles from Image in the past few years and one of my absolute favorites since it debuted in 2012. Long before I ever met Tim and Mike, I dreamed of being able to adapt this story on film and I intend to do everything I can to realize it to its full potential.” said Boyce on the panel.

No release date has been announced yet but the award-nominated horror thriller series follows the success of other Image titles that either was successfully adapted to the screen or are in the process of being adapted. 'The Walking Dead,' 'Outcast,' 'Chrononauts,' 'Postal,' and others have made the jump to TV/film or are about to.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Betty and Veronica: Vixens' #1 by Jamie L Rotante, Eva Cabrera, and Elaina Unger

Archie Comics is not afraid to spice things up with non-continuity books featuring the Riverdale gang in alternate realities. Whether it's a zombie horror book (Afterlife with Archie), a fledgling rock band (The Archies), or crossing over with other characters (KISS, Ramones, Predator, Punisher), Archie and the gang have been through a lot of fun adventures. None have been more fun or as liberating as this new series, Betty and Veronica: Vixens.


BETTY AND VERONICA: VIXENS #1

From the opening splash page of a girl biker gang rolling down the highway clad in black leather you
can almost hear "Born to be Wild" playing in your head, Jamie Rotante sets the tone as they circle a trailer of Southside Serpents. These badass bikers mean business and aren't to be trifled with. The shocking part is…
