well, here we are.
issue is done. first arc is complete.
printed version of death vigil issue 8 and high quality version digitally comes out next month i will post updates when.
if you are unaware why i am uploading this here, i will refer you to this journal
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...
NO! I'M NOT SETTING UP A KICKSTARTER OR PATREON!
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.
and to this one
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
from here on, it is in my readers hands.
it comes down to this. sales of issue 8 and the trade are pretty much going to be the deciding factor on whether or not more will be made, and when it will be made.
i don't do kickstarters, i don't do patreons. i do comics. if you like my comics, you can buy them , i will provide a bunch of links soon
beyond that, things are simple for me. see, i prefer working on the stories i write.
however i am not in any danger of being out of work. i always can do work for hire.
but, over time i have sort of ran my health into the ground. so i have given up on the notion of trying to keep my creator owned works afloat through additional projects. it's like trying to swim with a bunch of anvils while hanging on to a small flotations device. sooner or later, anvils will drag you under.
now we will see whether or not death vigil will prove itself an anvil or if it will float on it's own. i hope you enjoy the book
