Due to unforseen circumstances, Stjepan Sejic releases the Death Vigil #7 for fans and supporters of the series. Continue reading Stjepan Sejic offers up Death Vigil #7 on his DeviantArt
It’s no big secret here at Outright Geekery that we are big fans of Stjepan Sejic. So when an opportunity presented itself to interview Sejic, it was simply too good to pass up. Stjepan was nice enough to answer our questions on a variety of topics, from his beginnings in the comic industry, to his current work on Death Vigil, his upcoming run on Rat Queens, his own web-series Sunstone and teases us with what future projects he has in the pipeline.
Oh man, this latest issue of Death Vigil really hits hard. Or as they say on Reddit, “hits you in the feels”. Hats off to Stjepan Sejic for once again making this series such a fun read. This has to be the darkest chapter in the series yet, as Bernardette’s past comes back and bites her hard. This could very well be the “Empire” moment of the series, as our heroes have just suffered a great loss and followed up with Bernie’s imprisonment at the hands of Maria Benes.
Outright Geekery’s series of posts highlighting the very best of the year that was 2014 continues with the comic books that pulled of a whole lot with very little. It’s easy to pull off epic stories in titles that span dozens of issues and years of building, but doing that in less than a dozen books takes some real talent, and the impact on the reader is as relatively great as the number of comic pages is relatively small. Here’s my top comic book limited series of 2014. Continue reading Gaumer’s Top Comic Book Limited Series of 2014
The enemy stands revealed. An ancient order of immortal necromancers known as the Pale Court has resurfaced, and Bernie is plagued by unclear memories and great sorrow as more vigil members fall. One last veilripper remains to be claimed before…

Taylor: Thor & Loki: The Tenth Realm #1 (or Original Sins 5.1 or whatever)
As an unabashed fan of Thor, I’ve got a keen interest in this story, which aims to introduce a fairly major change to the status quo. Introducing Angela as Thor’s sister could be either a great or a terrible idea, and this initial story will go a long way in determining which. In any event, I have a great deal of trust in Jason Aaron, and Al Ewing has been solid on the Loki book, so it’ll be interesting to see how this collaboration works out.
THOR & LOKI: THE TENTH REALM #1 (of 5)
Writers: Jason Aaron/Al Ewing
Artist: Simone Bianchi
• Thanks to the events of ORIGINAL SIN, the deepest secret of the Nine Realms is revealed… a Tenth Realm!
• Thor and Loki embark on a quest to discover this strange new world — and the sister Thor never knew he had… Angela!
• But can Loki be trusted? And will brother and sister murder each other before the truth comes out?
Christian: Detective Comics #33
With Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato on this title I knew the art was going to be amazing, but it’s truly surprising that the Icarus story-arc in the current run of Detective Comics is just a wonderful Batman story. With all the Bat-family showing up in Batman Eternal, and Batman proper being a tale of old, I’m really happy that there’s still a Batman book that just stars Batman in a fun adventure.
DETECTIVE COMICS #33

In “Icarus” part four, Batman must contend with a gang war between The Squid and the Kings of the Sun before it consumes all of Gotham City! But can even the World’s Greatest Detective defuse a blood feud that’s about to go nuclear?
Gaumer: All-New X-Men #29
It’s a light week for me, but there are still plenty of gems in my stack. Despite great potential in Original Sin #5.1 and amazing art in Detective Comics #33, I’m most looking forward to the siege of the New Xavier School continue in All-New X-Men. Bendis is teetering on the brink of a cliff of time-traveling tropes, and whether he makes it across or falls off the edge, it’s going to be interesting.
