DEATH VIGIL: VOLUME 1 LANDS IN JULY
Stejepan Sejic is a monster of an artist. The guy is incredibly fast and has illustrated some of the most breath-taking images in recent years within the comic book industry. He already has best-selling titles under his belt like Sunstone and now Rat Queens, not to mention his work with Top Cow Productions on books like Artifacts, Witchblade, and Aphrodite IX. This July, the first eight issues of Death Vigil, the dark fantasy series he’s writing and drawing for Top Cow / Image Comics, will be collected in one trade paperback. Here’s the write-up from the publisher:
In Death Vigil: Volume 1 those who are “gifted” are encouraged to join the Death Vigil in their ongoing war against the ever-growing power of the Primordial Enemy. The only catch is that you have to die first. When loner Clara Jenkins becomes a corporeal immortal Death Knight, she obtains reality-altering weaponry in the never-ending battle between good and evil and becomes part of a makeshift family of fellow Death Knights. But a League of Necromancers has aligned themselves with a world-devouring enemy seeks to destroy the vigil above all else...
I’ll be honest here and say that dark fantasy isn’t usually my thing. This has started to change in recent years, but I haven’t fully embraced the sub-genre. Seeing Sejic’s involvement in any book will pique my interest though so I’ll definitely be checking out this release. Death Vigil: Volume 1 will hit comic book stores on July 29th, 2015 and bookstores on August 11th, 2015. It will retail for $24.99.
