Fight after death

Let me tell you one thing about this graphic novel – it’s AWESOME! I loved it! I Loved everything in it – the story, the characters, the occasional humor, the graphic, the idea. Fantastic!

Death Vigil vol 1 Death Vigil Vol 1 (Death Vigil #1-8) by Stjepan Šejić

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-icon

Goodreads | Amazon US | Amazon UK

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads blurb:

Gifted? Join the Death Vigil in their ongoing war against the ever-growing power of the Primordial Enemy! Only catch is you have to die first. Become a corporeal immortal Death Knight and obtain reality-altering weaponry in the never-ending battle between good and evil.

That blurb should already make you curious enough to check this novel out. Death Vigil has everything a good graphic novel should have –  likable and energetic characters, proper villain, interesting story, well-placed humor and good visual presentation of it all.

Oh, and if you still have doubts, you can check the first pages on artist’s DeviantArt account: http://nebezial.deviantart.com/gallery/47267490/death-vigil.

This story is packed with interesting characters:

  • Bernie – the death herself, who leads the Death Vigil group,
  • Sam – the lead character who tells the story and who is strongly attracted toward Bernie
  • Clara – newest addition to Death Vigil after she was murdered by her necromancer boyfriend

There’s also a bunch of secondary characters with vibrant personalities. Even the evil guys are interesting – Maria only wants to use necromantic powers to bring her daughter back to life, little does she know she’s only a part of a bigger plan.

What can I tell you about the graphic other that it was awesome? Well, that pretty much sums it up :P. I liked the design of all of the characters. They were all distinctive. The monsters were amazing and scary, some of them were khtulu-like, some were very different, all  of them pretty cool.

Instead of showing you a random panel from this novel I’ll just use all 8 issue covers because they’re pretty cool 😀

I’ll be waiting for next volumes of this story, and you should be reading it now! Go on, check the DeviantArt link, go to Amazon or wherever you buy your comics from and buy it! It’s awesome.
