Hey. long time reader, first time commenter.

First off, I love your work. Great stuff, I've read a lot of it.

That being said, you need to stop this. You did this with the Sunstone cover, and now you're doing it to Death Vigil. You create an amazing, attractive, dynamic cover, and then you change it for a lesser image. This isn't a bad image, but it's just not as good as the older one (with Bernie and Hugin). It had an actual background (this one is just... black), and it had a great 'come hither' vibe that your synopsis carries about joining the Vigil. While this one just feels... ugh. Just Bernie's upper torso as she kinda smiles. 

It's your book, do what you want. It just hurts to know that your choosing a lesser image over such a great cover, and as a fan I just wanted to let you know that some people don't like this change. 

Anywho, keep up the great work! Can't wait to read the rest of this series along with Rat Queens, Switch, and Ravine (when you finally have time to keep that monster rolling) and more! :D

Ah, okay. I remember seeing that one on Amazon and loving it. I'd just gotten so use to it this change caught me off guard. 

As for Sunstone, how you mentioned giving up the older cover (which is now on the back of the physical book) since it didn't have both Ally and Lisa (Which I agree with that as a principle for a cover change.

It just has this awesome dynamic nature to it, then you changed it to an image with Ally and Lisa just standing on the cover together. I dunno, after seeing so much of your artwork incorporate both the characters alongside great dynamic movement, and knowing how many fun situations these two find themselves in that would involve some fun angles, I just was a little disappointed that you went with such a 'mild' cover.  

Btw, your cover to chapter 5 is PERFECT! 

Anywho. Hope everything is going swell! I know you're busy and I'm probably distracting you.

Thanks for the reply!

Still waiting for the Bernie cosplayers ...

... and the paperback :) My comic book dealer couldn't get the issues for me any more after issue #1 and told me that fact only after #2 and #3 had already sold out (he was supposed to collect them for me so I could pick them up on one of my occasional visits), so I was hoping hard for something like this to happen so I wouldn't have to spend 50 USD on the missing issues! And now, pre-ordered it is, but hell, the waiting time kills me :D (Bernie? Any chance this counts as a heroic death ...?)

Death Vigil Vol. 1 trade paperback with this cover is on pre-order on Amazon.com.  I'm trying to decide if I want to buy it, or collect the comic books that are  being offered as a bundle by someone on eBay.  Can you give me some information on the trade book?  I don't know what to expect from this purchase.  Will D.V. 1-8 (from what I understand to be the complete story) be covered in this one book?  Thank you. :)
