Clara Jenkins never had many friends. Then she joined Death Vigil...and she gained many friends. The end! Oh...and of course there is that whole small print deal about the League of Necromancers who aligned themselves with a world-devouring enemy of all life, can summon unholy abominations to do their bidding, and seek to destroy the vigil above all else...

    Its fantastic to see a creator so invested in his story and even cooler to see one able to literally do everything involved. Hell, he might have even stapled all the issues himself because thats how involved and invested in this story he is. Death Vigil is another great title from Top Cow from a great creator really letting himself loose on the world of comics. The only downside to this book is once you read it, you might find yourself less impressed with everything else out there. Read Full Review

    DEATH VIGIL, you've captured my attention. The characters are incredibly charming, the dialogue is full of fun and laughter, and the overall premise continues to slowly unfold and reveal what makes it special. It would be nice to get a little more of the villains' side of things, but with so many characters on the Death Vigil, it's understandable that eji needs to spend so much time with them while also attempting to teach us more and more about this world. I've never been all that big of a fantasy fan, but DEATH VIGIL is impressively entertaining. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 13, 2014

    The story takes a break from the danger this issue and I was okay with that. The first issue was pretty intense and so just settling into the world here was enjoyable and entertaining. Reading this issue of Death Vigil, put a big goofy grin on my face and hopefully it'll do the same for you. Read Full Review

    If this is the status quo, Death Vigil is a winner. Its world is immense, and the storytelling is rife with the things readers want to enjoy. It's worth a pull-list spot, and if you're into grand plots with extraordinary characters, you'd be remiss to let this slip by. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner Aug 12, 2014

    The characters are likeable, relatable and distinguishable from one another. The writing is funny, informative and non-pandering. The pacing is pitch-perfect. The action set pieces are imaginative and grand in scale. The potential for this book is high. There is absolutely zero reason to miss out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 13, 2014

    Death Vigil #2 keeps giving us that mix of magic, fantasy and drama. Now that there has been an establishment of the threat, characters, and stakes in this war now we can move on to something more progressive. In terms of seeing the Vigil in more of an offensive position or doing more of the things they say they do as death knights. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Aug 13, 2014

    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.

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Aug 12, 2014

    Death Vigil #2 loses the momentum won by the debut issue. The cluttered pages and excessive narration and explanations make reading this a surprising chore. Even Sejics normally masterful artwork suffers from the plots disjointed narrative as well as its dense plotting. This series cant afford another misstep like this but the good news is that so many of the right pieces are already in place, they just need to be utilized. Read Full Review
