Are you up to date?

Hi, folks!

Just a quick note to say that the best place to get all the latest Vigor Mortis news is either at:

+ The Vigor Mortis Patreon
+ The main Vigor Mortis site

I update these a lot more frequently than the news section here at Smack Jeeves, so don't forget to take a look if you want to stay up to date.

Hope you're enjoying the comic!

Vigor Mortis Christmas competition!

Do you like spooky booze, Christmas candy and/or making stuff?

If so, you may want to check out the Vigor Mortis Christmas competition!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create some kind of Christmas-themed Vigor Mortis thing, be it a card, decoration, gift/gift idea, fan art, fan fiction, photo, cosplay, baking, crafty item, etc.

You have until midnight on Sunday the 20th of December to submit your entries to thereaperorganisation@gmail.com, and you don't have to be a Patreon patron to enter.

Good luck, everyone!

Colour Me Cosh competition!

As part of the promised Vigor Mortis Shocktoberfest shenanigans, we've finally unveiled the full details of the Colour Me Cosh competition!

The TLDR? Colour the linework of Cosh's big reveal from chapter two (which you can find here) and win yourself some spooky booze (or other, similarly spooky non-alcoholic offering)!

Be sure to check out the big ol' update post for what's been happening with Vigor Mortis during October, and you can find WIPs to tide you over until regular pages resume over at Facebook and the Reaper Ops Tumblr.

Good luck, and be sure to check out the Vigor Mortis Patreon if you haven't already - we would never have got this far without it!

End of September update!

Hi, guys!

September has been a pretty crazy month across the board, so keeping the blog here on Smack Jeeves updated has fallen by the wayside a bit.

I've written a massive update post over on the Vigor Mortis Patreon, so rather than me try and paraphrase it, click here to head on over and read it!

The TLDR is that next month we'll be printing the very first physical copies of Vigor Mortis (yay!), page production will be going down as a result (boo!) but we'll also be laying on lots of fun stuff to make up for this (including a shiny new Halloween cheesecake milestone goal), so be sure to keep an eye on the Vigor Mortis Patreon for all the latest updates (and consider becoming a patron yourself if you've been enjoying the comic - we've only managed to get this far thanks to the support of awesome people like you!).

As a reminder, you can also find Vigor Mortis over at the main site, Tapastic, DeviantArt and Facebook - and you can vote for us at TopWebcomics.com!

We also recently launched Reaper Ops, a Vigor Mortis Tumblr dedicated to all non-comic-page stuff like WIPs, fan art, extras and creator ramblings, so be sure to check it out!

Thanks for reading!

Vigor Mortis anniversary competition!

Hi, everyone!

It's been another busy month, but we just wanted to give you the chance to take part in the Vigor Mortis anniversary competition!

To enter, all you have to do is submit some sort of Vigor Mortis (and possibly also birthday) themed thing such as fan art, fan fiction, photos, cosplay, baking, crafts or similar - (almost) anything goes!

Prizes up for grabs include a hand-knitted replica of Rip's scarf (pictured below), a signed bonus doodle of Rip and Cosh by Jennie and multiple pieces of writing on a Vigor Mortis topic of your choosing.

Anyone can enter (not just our Patreon patrons), and you have until midnight on Saturday the 15th of August to make your submissions to thereaperorganisation@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing your entries!

Cheesecake, Patreon patron portraits and general update!

Hi, guys - long time no write (on here, at least)!

Thanks to the vote on Patreon ending in a tie, the piece of cheesecake art became a cheese and/or beefcake featuring both Cosh and Aloysius, which you can see in all its glory here.

We've also just got round to doing two patron portraits as part of the $20+ Patreon pledge reward, which includes one of these, a personalised Death Certificate and exclusive access to the Reaper Organisation's post mortem support service - check them out!

If you want to help support the comic and unlock cool stuff, consider becoming part of the the Vigor Mortis Patreon!

Don't forget that you can also follow our update thread on the Smack Jeeves forum for a monthly roundup of all things Vigor Mortis.

Thanks for reading!
