In a 1930s Illinois, we enter the life of Daniel Groth: A rather down on his luck, timid man that was recently forced to become a gravedigger after being laid off from a previous job. He has been secretly in love with his best and only true friend, Christine, since he met her years ago.

However, Daniel suddenly seems to vanish off the face of the Earth one day, and isn't heard from again for quite some time. Until late one night, when Christine gets a single knock on her door.

Daniel has returned to his beloved, but as an unnerving shadow of his former self. Witness an extremely tense downward spiral as the truth behind Daniel's new, highly bloodthirsty nature is slowly revealed.

Updates once a week.

@Kingfish: Probably the cig, Frank is just a creepy human. :P
Creep... Are those fangs I see, or is the cigarette playing tricks on my eyes?

That Day
Daniel’s pupils turned back to normal in the second panel (still red though).

Also…hi, real Danny.
….and Frank, whom Daniel does not know at that time.

@Kingfish: Thank you so much! ^_^
Oh my God... This is so brilliantly played! It's not easy making significant characters and then deciding who to kill off, and who not to. As a published author myself, I still wonder about my decisions to kill off certain characters; while it's dramatic, there's also a balance.
You've done very well with this story! I can't wait to see the next chapter. :D
Bittersweet
Thus ends Chapter 10. Chapter 11, the final chapter of Daniel, begins soon. Holy crap, I can’t believe we’ve come this far...

A bit about Leonard and his fam: Yes, I went over a few options of what happens to them in chapter 10. Even considering Leonard, or Molly, being left alone…or even the ENTIRE family being killed, but in the end I felt those might’ve came off absurdly grim and it would’ve made me wonder why I made this family fairly significant characters in the first place.

In the end, this felt like the most “right” direction. The horror of loss is still there with Francine’s death, but some hope, too.

But heck, if Daniel ever becomes a Telltale game, then maybe you can see the other, horrible results. XD

Anyway guys, thank you for coming this far with me on this creepy little comic. I hope you enjoy the rest, as slow-moving as it’ll be. :P

The cover of chapter 11 will appear at the main site first: http://www.vermillionworks.com/daniel/

@Auldr: Gosh, thank you very much! Comments like this give me so much life. Glad you've been enjoying this whole part. :)
You have done a brilliant job of using emotional depth to round out the horror. Right now that pivots on Molly, but it’s not simply the horror of Daniel feeding on the child, it’s the emotional choices the adults are forced to make. And, in Christine’s sake, the guilt that her own survival might have come at the cost of a child’s life, or worse. This is really well done.
Fly Away
Have a good flight, Christine!
