I’m going to start by saying I’m not a big comic book or graphic novel fan. Sure I’ve read a few issues of X-Men and Wolverine. I’ve read a couple of Spider-Man and Batman comics. And I used to be addicted to Archie and Richie Rich comics when I was a kid. But other than that, I’m not a big fan.
So when I decided to check out Death Vigil Volume 1, I was expecting to be blown away. I was right. First, a female reaper – always awesome. Second, the reaper and her group are here to protect life from the Primordial enemy and Necromancers, not to put people to death or collect their souls.
This graphic novel is truly amazing – a must read for anyone who loves graphic novels and comics or anyone who wants to get into graphic novels. The panels were easy to follow – something I’ve often found lacking in graphic novels. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and the cover gallery at the end is not to be skipped! There’s a picture of Bernadette in there I’d love to have a poster of to be perfectly honest.
The storyline was very interesting as well. I sincerely hope there is more to come in the Death Vigil series because I will be sorely disappointed if Death Vigil Volume 1 is the only one there is!
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
