My Thoughts:
While still new to comics, I was waiting to check out at the comic shop and struck up a conversation with a stranger. He heartily recommended Death Vigil. I decided to give it a go. I think there were two issues out at that time and I picked them both up.

From the beginning, I was hooked! I’ve seriously dreamed of one day writing a story or making a movie with a similar theme where after you die, you get recruited to do some defense of the good/battle against evil type stuff. So I was sold just on that. Add in Sejic’s beautiful art and the fact that he writes the best characters in the world, and you really can’t beat this book.

In very little space, you get to know and love these characters with all their quirks and humor. I want to be friends with these people. Go drinking with Sam. Play video games with Mia & James. Maybe bake cookies with Marlene. Go dancing with Bernie.

I loved it so much that not only did I buy each individual issue (and #8 twice – just to make sure I could read it on the day it came out) but I bought the trade paperback as well. Basically, I want to give Stjepan Sejic all my money to make sure he keeps writing this series. It’s just a fantastic book and everyone should read it.
