7/11/17 Reread for my summer YA comics class with a focus on girls/women. It's not mainly a teen comic, actually, as Rachel and her friends are in their twenties (and as murdered and now risen women, centuries old!), but there are teen women and girls in it, for sure. And it connects well with other witch/zombie/monster comics we are reading, such as Harrow County (Emmy--a witch--rising). I finished the series and very much liked it--great story, great drawing, great characters--so it was interesting to go back and start over. Doing that, I liked it even more, since you can better see the way thematic material is being carefully paid out every step of the way. It's more fun without the confusion you have to go through as a new story unfolds. One thing that is clear in this reread; yes, there are gruesome things that happen, but it is also a very funny comic series. So good! One of the best around in this type of comics.
6/18/17 How did I miss this comic when it came out? Here’s how: It looks like a zombie comic (get it, Rachel rising. . . . from the dead?!), and when it came out I was sick to death with the supersaturation of zombie everything. But Rachel Rising is a really good comic about the undead, not really a zombie comic in the popular conception of it, it’s supernatural, it’s horror, it’s a mystery, and it is really engaging, character-based, and amusing.
The opening scene is awesome, her rising. Yikes, very spooky and cool. Memorable! And then other things happen, as Rachel re-engages with the world not as creepy zombie walker but as pretty close to what she looked like before, though, yes, undead, and with rope burns around her neck and a very low body temperature! How can she enlist her completely alive family and friends in her efforts to find her killer? She has to convince them she is "alive," first!
There’s a scary little murderous girl in it. There’s a really creepy preacher that scares the heck out of you (ok, me) by beginning to help us see what it is that is going on with this other creepy woman who is visiting town (who looks too much like Rachel, which is unnecessarily confusing, a mistake, or is it, not sure). Bad things are happening, and a lot of them. But why? And what does it mean that murdered girls are rising from the dead, mad as hell?
This story has murderous vapors swirling everywhere, swirling faster, and they suck you into that vortex entertainingly, through likable, believable characters, and darned good dialogue. It’s not a bloody slasher fest, in case you were worried about that. It feels original and fresh and not cliched at all. I haven’t loved everything that Moore has done that I have read, but this one I really like a lot. It’s fun! And his delicate black and white drawing in this is really amazing.
