It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

i will link my main journal explaining things :)

it explains my reasons for doing this, but in short the book is dying and this is my last struggle to keep it alive :)

if you want to support the book, read the journal and there will be updates :)

also, please ignore typos here and there, these are mostly unedited versions as i lost the edited pdfs

f#$k it! it's death vigil for EVERYONE!So i've been sitting here thinking...
we live in the age of kickstarter and patreon....
people are supporting all sorts of projects...
i don't have the patience not the focus to handle all that... but it did get me thinking...
if teasers for projects can get people to fund it... what aout the full thing?
i don't do crowdfunding. i make comics.
i publish comics. if people love and buy my comics... i get to make more comics.
so with that in mind. i will post the entirety of death vigil here. 
from there on it's in the hands of the readers. if you want to support the book being made, i will post the comixology links, and image digital links, as well as trade preorder links.
so if you feel this is your kind of comic, and it's something you want to see made in it'y entirety..and can afford to support it by buying it...thank you.
if not, i still hope you like it. so with no further a do... this week i will be uploading issues.
starting to

other journal with preorder links stockpiling

death vigil preorder linksso... here it is..the thing that critically injured my book...
some fun insight for any of you who want to get your own series running...
without promotion...quality won't get you far. 
let's put things into context
this is death vigil series result on comic book roundup
comic book roundup is to comics what metacritic is to games and whatnot. it compiles multiple reviews and creates an average score.
based on reviews death vigil has a score of 9.1 out od 10
and yet here we are. 
i will now copy a part from my previous journal as it is relevant
now, as i work predominantly for independent companies, my work can be a bit hard to get.
reason for this is a simple one. comic book stores buy their supplies from diamond. the main distributor. 
they buy stuff they know will sell. comics

also, previous issues
death vigil 1 full issue- cuz it's a good day :)

 death vigil 2 full issue happy new year! :) by nebezial

I'm propsmaker and one of my client order me this sculpture for a cosplay of Sam.
I would like to do honour to your works, and to be the most accurate possible.
So I would like to know if you could send me different view of it, please ?

Awesome man, I am studying comic and I really enjoyed the Elvish graces you did few years back for skull kickers, that was fantastic. any advice on how to improve my characters/anatomy/expressions?
kyoukusanagi Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015
death vigil is one of those series that i hope will actually last forever. like superman. and wish that every single character in there has their own origin/ side stories
Avalons21 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015
It won't last forever - he posted somewhere that there are gonna be only 3 books and then the story will end. The reality is that there is a danger there not to be even 2 or 3rd book since the contract with the publishers is not 100% sure - If not enough people buy the book there is no sense to make more. And even this book is hard to be written - do you think about all the things he will go through to make more side stories. Lets just hope that there will be book 2 and 3.

So where can I buy your stuff?? I've read all of the death
vigil that you've posted here on deviantart, and I want to own physical copies. (Because your comics are really good.)

This is one of my favorite comics. The art is gorgous and unique, the characters living, the plot intriguing, the dialogue fun and witty. I'll miss it. :(
Shadowwand Featured By Owner May 22, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's great news but it's also very sad because I was saving up to buy the hard books, I couldn't hold the temptation and I bought up to #3 in digital format. 
graphicfire Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Hi just thought I would mention, I had missed picking up one of the seemingly few copies comic stores in my area for #6. I just went to the Top Cow online store looking to pickup a hard-copy online for 3.99 however the shipping is a flat 20$, sorry but I'm not paying an extra 20$ for a 4$ comic. I will look around a bit more and perhaps see if i can get a store to get a copy in.

I'm not complaining or trying to place blame just wanted to mention something that might be preventng sale of your awesome book. When shipping is 5x the cost of the book on top of the actual book purchase seems there could be a better way.

Keep up the great work.
rretter Featured By Owner May 19, 2015
Without some kind of subscription arrangement, you're gonna get killed by those noble stanchions of independent comicness.  The choice is that or just give up on chapter-at-a-time and buy trade paperbacks on Amazon.  That's what I've done, and it's worked out well enough.

Of course, the indie shops do tend to  offer those full-on comics-junkie arrangements, so that may be your thing.  But I suspect it's not, since you were reasonable enough to recognize the absurdity of a 400% "shipping" markup.
graphicfire Featured By Owner May 20, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Yea Death Vigil is really the only comic right now that had made me want to collect issues. So I was not going to start a pull list or anything like that.

I understand it costs something to ship and expect to pay a bit for the service, but not that. It was listed as a "flat rate" so it might be great if your dropping a pile of cash for a bunch of stuff.
Harmonica39 Featured By Owner May 18, 2015
have you tried asking your LCS for a reorder? if image still hase issues avaiable your LCS should be able to get you one.
graphicfire Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
not yet but I plan to next chance I get
hairwire Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know you must have thousands of these comments coming through, but I just wanted to know how I might be able to help keeping this afloat?

I intend to pay for all the issues (but I'm not particularly financially viable right now) - is there any particular supplier that means you or the series could get more of the proceeds?  I am entirely happy to pay you directly :D
RedevilBep Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It really captivating that you have such a unique story line in progress. And the fact it gets interesting with each chapter you release. Even the art work here clearly shows how much detailed work and talent you have invested. Really cant wait to see the next chapter release. Will definitely buy the comics when I get enough funds :)

I never liked a comic as much.

I'd love to have it... I wonder if I could get it past customs though. =/
Harmonica39 Featured By Owner May 16, 2015
where do you live? its available pretty much everywhere, as its published by Image.
Graveyard-Keeper Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you for the concern. I'm not so worried with the availability to send, but with the local customs office restrictions. :/

I just bought the digital versions of the first six issues (haven't had time to fully savor them yet) for a measly 12 bucks.
Everyone (that means all you out there) should do this to support Stjepan's efforts.
