Death Vigil Wages War in July



Death Vigil is a dark fantasy that explores the battle between good and evil. Written and illustrated by Stjepan Sejic, Death Vigil has the first eight issues ready to go as part of a trade paperback due in stores in July from Top Cow and Image Comics. In Death Vigil Vol. 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...

Death Vigil Vol. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-63215-278-7) hits comic book stores on July 29 and bookstores on August 11 and will be available for $24.99. It can be ordered by retailers from Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond Code MAR150526. Full press release below.

More praise for DEATH VIGIL:

“The only downside to this book is once you read it, you might find yourself less impressed with everything else out there.” —All-Comic

“If you haven't read anything by or seen any of Sejic's work I urge you check this out. The writing is great, the art is beautiful and whilst it is really funny, it is building a really great story with what is sure to be an epic confrontation between the Enemy and the Death Vigil.” —Comic Crusaders

“This is Top Cow's best series at the moment and it continues to hit on one of my favorite weeks of the month. There are so many great books this week and Death Vigil is definitely included in that statement. If you haven't checked this series out yet then grab the back issues or purchase the digital issues because you're missing out.” —Comic Bastards

Death Vigil should be on many best of lists at the end of the year.” —Multiversity Comics

Death Vigil continues to be a must read for this fanboy, and if you love fun, quirky tales full of action then it'll be so for you too. Highly recommended.” —Unleash the Fanboy
