I’m one of those people. The kind of person who watched ‘Dante’s Peak’ and didn’t blink one when grandma died, but wept when the dog almost didn’t make it. The only thing I cared about in 2014 was stupid Japanese Chin.

So, needless to say, ‘Revival #19’, with the death of Lester’s dog, Chuck, at the hands of the baby version of the weird alien ghosts at the opening made me want to put down the comic altogether. But, I guess I’m glad I didn’t, because I got a little bit of my favorite thing in the whole world –  and that’s Dana and Ibrahim being at odds.

You know that whole Dana-goes-off-and-tries-to-find-Martha’s-killer-vigilante-style thing? It turns out Ibrahim thinks that’s against the law (it is), and he’s not to approving of it. Then he has to take care of Dana’s infected back from when she was pushed through a glass window, and he’s less against her. It’s complicated. I like it. Complicated is good. And if you’re reading ‘Revival’, chances are that you like complicated.

It gets even more complicated, though, when Agent Dana Scully (okay, it’s not, but sure looks like her) comes and starts asking questions about the Check brothers.

Now that is one hell of a cliffhanger.

As always, I’m excited to see what happens next.
