turns out, i'm an idiot. now, i know there are those of you who have been saying this for YEARS, but, me - being an idiot - well, i'm slow to catch on.
i burned through the entire Chew series earlier this year, and became really excited to get my hands on a copy of the comic i am right here reviewing: the Chew/Revival mashup (or, if you prefer, the Revival/Chew mashup, which is right here: Revival/Chew).
in this story, characters from these two wildly dissimilar series meet up to investigate a crime, and the artists draw both their own characters, as well as those from the other series.
in case you haven't read these series, here's an example of the artwork from Chew:
and from Revival:
so, it's quite exciting to see how a project like this will pan out, with such different illustration styles.
the Chew half of the story was reprinted in Chew, Vol. 11: The Last Suppers, but i wanted to read the other side, so i went on the internet and bought myself a copy.
turns out i had read the Revival side of things, which was included in Revival, Vol. 4: Escape to Wisconsin. now, way back in 2014 when i read it, i hadn't read any Chew, and it's a good thing i'd forgotten some of the details of the story, because in this crossover event, there is a major spoiler for Chew, Vol. 6: Space Cakes, which was volume that made me yell aloud when i read it, so i'm glad i got to have that experience pure and not rooned for me by some too-realistic-looking tony chu. of course, i remembered the story immediately when i flipped to the Revival side of the flip-n-read comic (yes, i read the Chew side first even though i'd JUST read it in Chew, Vol. 11: The Last Suppers because i was deferring the pleasure of this long-anticipated crossover event), but for some reason, it hadn't occurred to me that this would have been the connected story - for all i knew, there could have been multiple crossovers between these characters.
but nope. just this one.
the Revival half is much stronger in terms of story - it's actually one of my favorite things to ever happen in the Revivalverse
however, i like the artwork better in the Chew half, but that's because it's always more enjoyable to see something realistic made cute:
than to see something cute made realistic:
okay, bad example, because that second one is definitely more awesome in "realistic" form.
in any case, i prefer my tony chu cartoony and angry
instead of realistic and - what is that? - a smile?
that's not the tony chu i have grown to love. tony chu doesn't say "haha."
so, even though i'd (apparently) read them both before, i'm glad i have them in one volume now, because it's a special object, and doing the flippy-thing is fun and very good exercise.
however, i'm sad that colby didn't get drawn Revival-style. presumably he was off doing ... something else
while tony was investigating, but i really wanted to see how his sexxy-robotish self would translate into more realistic-artwork.
but, there's one other nice detail - i have just started reading the Saga series, and there's actually a Saga nod here in the form of a visual reference:
so this is more like an orgy where all worlds collide than a crossover event and i feel especially nerdy right now.
