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 today with issue 3. enjoy :)

death vigil on comixology…

death vigil on image comics digital…

death vigil amazon…

also available for preorder on other versions of amazon and in online comic book stores

FINALLY found the trade paperback (I'm not in the US, I can't and won't do their weird comic-pre-buy-pull-list-what???!-thing) in a store, because oh did I love reading it online, yes I did, but I love having it in my shelf even more, and it's not been on those shelves since before I had the money for it.

If ever you resume it I will buy the hell out of it. I couldn't, last time, but my life's righted itself now.

And you did good, VERY good, with it.

I just finished the series. Bought them on googleplay. Would love to see more.

Hell i'll pay up. I know its been said that crowfunding isnt on thr table but id ask ya guys to reconsider 
Clad9M Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2018
Dear Stjepan,
Is there even the slightest chance you will ever resume Death Vigil?
Me and one of my friend are huge fans (bought the TPB of course) and are craving for a next ark (and I feel we are not the only ones)? So, please, will you be able to answer our prayers?I've got my fingers crossed. 
android22 Featured By Owner May 6, 2018
Agreed! Perhaps oversee development and leave the actual writing/drawing to someone else?
Horuke Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2018
I've got a new trade paperback to buy now.

Thanks, it was a blast reading it.
I only just recently learned of Death Vigil but I immediately bought the trade collection on Comixology. I don't know if you're ever going to do more of this series but I hope you do, I love your writing as much as your art!
Lumentorium Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2016
You are a trully fucking artist bro! :0 i'm so impressed about your art, your story, all of that. To tell you the truth i'm gonna make a international card to buy your Comic!! IT IS FREAKING AWESOME!
HandmaidenPhi Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2016
I have my book out there for free too. People said I was crazy, but if a book isn't read, it's useless. When someone buys the hard copy after getting to read it for free online, that's a deep compliment. A lot of people told me they bought it after getting to see the whole thing.

Which has happened here. I done bought your thing. :-) 
BlackGuard89 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
On a serious note, read the chapters here, definately going to buy all the issues and Sunstone as well for that matter. These two are the best things I have read in a long long time. I hope it will help you making more :D
ShadowWolf-X Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just got the digital TPB on Google all of it in one day.  Definitely hope their will me more to come. It's awesome!

I just bought the trade paperback and read this....omg what a great comic.  You sir are a MASTER AT YOUR CRAFT!!!
foxbow Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2015
I can confirm that it worked. And having it on paper beats the screen by laps.
Shiro31 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015
Just wanted to tell you: it worked. At least on me. I had downloaded the PDFs a couple of weeks ago and instantly knew I needed this. Ordered it on amazon, the whole first arc in one book. It came to me two days ago, I've read it three times already. Awesome work, I would love to see how it continues, especially the issue around Clara and "her" primordial.
redambrosia Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
So, if I subscribe to this will I get a paper copy or a digital copy? :-? (Confused) 

I really prefer to have paper copies. They give me something to put on my shelves (which are full...)
Makarias Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Initially ordering the first issue, because wow. Ordering an array of the first issue for friends and family. Ordering the rest of the issues for myself(MUST HAVE!) and encouraging others to buy the rest as well! Please continue kicking ass, I need moar! MOAR!

I preordered on Amazon :)
Please continue, the story is awesome!
SaoKasai Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I for one have bought all of the issues on comixology, and will buying a physical copy of the first volume when it comes out. Love this comic, and love your art. I've been reading Rat Queens because of you, and look for your work whenever I'm in a comic book store.
Anbekki Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2015
This comic is so amazingly great!!!
I'll buy them as soon as I can! I can't stop reading, i need more and more!
CatnipMafia Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2015
Totally bought them at the comic book store. This comic is super rad!

I've been buying it whenever I can, your work's awesome!
Feuerregen Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I love your Comics! I haven't yet bought it since if is hard to get in Germany, so I set up a friend of mine from the US to find it for me and send it over in a collected package of goodies.

I wish you all the best and success for Death Vigil, I want it in Paper on my shelf to adore in ist full glory!
browncoat4life Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Got all the singles bro, love the energy and motivation - but I can't afford to buy double so on this I shall pass.

I HOPE though, that you find a slew of new readers through this effort because books like Death Vigil definitely deserve it!

YOU, sir, are a magnificent bastard, truly.
I'll support you on this if it's the last thing I do.
Just for being this awesome.

balgus82 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015
Will it be too late to help if I get the graphic novel after it comes out instead of pre-ordering? I don't have the money for it right now, but will by then. 
ZombieGarou Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Pre-Ordered Vol.1,cant wait for august <3
Epic-Leather Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
These are amazing, Im purchasing a copy of a printed version to keep next to the Killing Joke and a few of my other favorites, I must have more.  Seriously this is one of the best series I've read in a while.
Boxhead737 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2015
Love your work, Ravine and Death Vigil are incredible. I've bought all of the avaliable issues of Death Vigil (6 I think?) on Comixology. I've noticed you've made more but they're not avaliable on comixology yet for some reason. I hope they're released soon, as that's my preferred comic reading medium. 
darkharbinger14 Featured By Owner May 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I guess in my case, all you had to do was ask :) I just pre-orded vol 1 from Amazon. I picked up Ravine 1 and 2 while I was there, too.

I'm a long time fan and I finally got a job that allows me to spend a little, so I'm glad to be a customer

Also, I think Death Vigil is awesome, I want to see it succeed! Those were the first comics I've ever purchased.
The-ADD-Ninja Featured By Owner May 22, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I bought issues #1-6 on Comixology and I can't wait to get my hands on the next 2 issues!
Will they be available on Comixology or will I have to get them through
Vegita1123 Featured By Owner May 20, 2015
I'm up to issue 6 and I'm going to cry if Sam is really dead T_T  I got the guys from work to go pick up the series as well. and next going to get them to read Ravine as well ;)
Sironae Featured By Owner May 16, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I bought the first 4 on comixology, so I'm definitely keen to buy more to help you out ^^ I only noticed you had more out when I saw you uploading the issues. Please keep writing 8D
BinAly Featured By Owner May 16, 2015
Got every issue from comixology. Keep up the good work.
mccoma Featured By Owner May 16, 2015
Loved every issue and buying off comixology and will continue buying
CreativeAfro Featured By Owner May 16, 2015
I'm broke 97% of the time, that being said: THANK YOU SO MUCH I LOVE THIS COMIC!!!! I don't know if you believe in a for of paradise or not but you surely deserve a spot there.
sunstroke-art Featured By Owner May 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Can I pre-order at my comic shop - or do you prefer and Amazon Pre-order?
My comic shop automatically orders EVERYTHING you publish, for me and for the shop!
binnfizz Featured By Owner May 15, 2015
Pre-ordered the tpb from Amazon late last year.  Looking forward to being able to read it.
sirauron Featured By Owner May 15, 2015
You are awesome and as soon as you posted this I bought the first 6 volumes for my ipad and am eagerly awaiting my chance to purchase the next two issues.  Volume 2 preordered, woo.

I only apologize for waiting so long to do so.  I've always enjoyed reading the little bits you've posted and your artwork.  It's about time I got off my ass and put my money down to support this awesomeness.  
LeilaDrake Featured By Owner May 15, 2015  Professional General Artist
Does the book with all the chapters have 284 pages? (Trying to find it on
Kionu Featured By Owner May 15, 2015
Hi... I don't normally post much on, but I absolutely love what you've done with this comic. So much so, that I've ordered all the digital copies on comiXology and subscribed to any issues to come. Aside from checking out your other comics (which I plan on doing when I get the time), is there anything else I can do to support this series?

Really sorry to hear about the hardships you underwent with it, and I hope it survives!
BitingHorse Featured By Owner May 14, 2015  Student Artisan Crafter
trying to support you as much as i can. already preordered it at my local comic store in town (austria vienna) and trying to get the word out. spreading love xD trying to get them to order more of your stuff. i really look up to you as a milestone ;) keep it up
Claymore152 Featured By Owner May 14, 2015
I'm usually one of those annoying strapped-for-cash people who won't buy anything I can get for free, but I want to know how this ends so bad I actually pre-ordered it off of Amazon. I really hope you're able to finish it.
EmikoOgasawara Featured By Owner May 14, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Awesome! Now I can get my friends into Death Vigil without having to lend them my pristine copies. :D

And just so you know, I'm not going to cancel my subscription at my local comic shop just because it's here online. I still want the hard copies too.
gcGreengrass Featured By Owner May 14, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
just a quick question, what does your publisher think about this?
Hiiro-Mizutani Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
I am so happy right now. I hadn't been able to get the latest volumes so this just made my night.
Battleferrets Featured By Owner May 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not sure why you wouldn't get a Patreon? Plenty of comic artists use it to get funding. People would happily pay per page (which is an option) to read your comics. And they're not hard to set up nor maintain. -shrugs- I'd consider it, at least. Look into it some. 
nebezial Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
1 maintaining it is a lot of time, 2 all the rewards and similar stuff would end up takign away more time from making comics.

for me it comes down to a simple  logic

i make comics

if people like my comics and buy my comics...

i get to make more comics.

if they don't. i can always quit and switch back to work for hire stuff.  i have  a plan B. it's just that i  prefer plan  A :)
Mikarara Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015
I understand your frustration at the difficulty maintaining things. But I sincerely implore you to make one despite that. I know there is a pressure to make rewards and all that but, if you made it simply 'donate any amount and you get the digital copy released before other people', I honestly think your fan base would pour out for you. The biggest confusion here seems to be 'how can I make sure you get the most of my money.' This would alleviate that a bit, even if it is more or less a glorified donation page at that point it would still be better than nothing.

I really appreciate your work. Sorry for coming off a little strong, but I know you've been having a rough time and I know money certainly is the last thing you need to be stressing about. Whatever does happen, I hope you get the support you deserve.
