first of the vigil by nebezial

so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video  with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published

but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders.  preorders are crucial for independent books as they define  the print  runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my  far more experienced friends told me to do....

death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries  US comics. 

you can find an extensive preview to issue 1 and much more here…

now, for some frequently asked questions

what about ravine? ron marz assured me that he will be done with his part of the work this weekend , so with just a bit luck we are sending book 2 to print next week. in fact once we do...i will make a big announcement here, alongside a bit of a surprise :)... A HEFTY..HEFTY SURPRISE

 what about twitch? ah yes...twitch. here is the deal, kickstarting  books like these is  a tricky business, complicated , anfd loaded with calculations... so here is pretty much how this stands
if death vigil is successful i get a free pass to go with twitch, no kickstarter no nothing, a full green light... so it pretty much stands on my shoulders and relies on my abilities as a storyteller to  capture the attention of the reader...

i have done this on some who knows XD

with some luck i will go full  self written material... and then well...i have fun plans. 

oh and next week video+audio tutorials coming. set everything up and just gotta clear everything from my backlog till this wednesday so my ranty accented english can grace your ears...TILL THEY BLEED!!!!! XD

Oh also , next week we'll be doing second round of  features, but more on that when i post that journal :)

okay after people asking ans suggesting, so here are some online shops that offer preorders on death vigil, more to come as this is jsut the ones i googled now, feel free to drop me   some links if you find more, i'll get more from my  peeps at top cow on monday

directly from top cow store…

online shops…………

for europe i personally have  been buying from archonia so i know them to be very reliable and professional, if you know any other webstore  feel free to tell me :)

more updates to come

Since I can't see an answer for it, I'm gonna join the choir and ask for a digital version one might purchase? ^_^

I'm sure this question may sound like sacrilege to most comic aficionados, but is it possible to just buy a Digital copy, like a PDF or something?

Physical's cool but it's nice to know it will always be in perfect condition if its on my harddrive. Heh cuz I don't look after my things properly ;P

Any chance it will be available at SDCC this month? I'm outside USA but have a friend buying up comics for me while she's there.

Yay! I've been looking forward to this so badly! I hope it becomes successful so you can get twich up and running, cause I've been looking forward to that series as well. With how well written and enduring Sunstone is, I bet Death Virgil will do great!

I think this is the first time i’ve ever bought a comic online :O I feel like I’ve achieved something.

When the first issue premieres, would you mind if I wrote a review of it? I actually write comic reviews for two different sites, so i can hopefully give you some double exposure.
