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: Wayne and Frank were quite inhuman humans and Tim was just...dragged along for the twisted ride. :\
So, I just watched the first episode of Lore the other day, and they talked about the origin of Vampires, and good Lord, it only makes this story more terrifying and heartbreaking. D:

Daniel is absolutely crushing my heart in the last panel. How do you throw a guy, even if you hate him, in a coffin and listen to him cry like that without feeling at least a little horrible?
Drop Dead
I’m sure it’d feel pleasant to be thrown on top of a pile of bones after getting the crap beat out of you. (I actually drew the bones being crushed and going everywhere but then it was covered up by muck splatter. :\)

Decapitation is indeed a way to deal with suspected vampires, along with stakes through the heart and cremation. There have also been stories of people being buried face down so they would be headed the wrong direction if they tried to rise from the grave.
Someone's been decapitated... Isn't that another vampire thing? Like, isn't the lore that vampires can only be killed by a crucifix or by decapitation?
(Un)hallowed
So yes, the house is occupied. :P

@Kingfish: Yep, of course Wayne would be an ass in every possible way. XP
@LostInADreamlessSea: Thank you so much! Glad you like it!^_^
Of course our least favourite character is the one who would call someone a "lunger." XD

God, this is so nerve wracking watching this unfold. D: I honestly feel my heart pounding whenever I see Daniel's horrified face. He so didn't deserve this..
Thank you for creating this story! It makes my day with every update! <3 (Which may sound strange, but I love every panel!)
Natural Causes
“Consumption” – Old term for tuberculosis.
“Lunger” – Old, kinda rude slang for a person with tuberculosis.

@Kingfish: Welllppp, you'll see. o__o
@LKWayvern: Wayne sure knows how to pick 'em. :\
I'm so scared of how they're going to kill him. But considering Daniel doesn't have any scars different from the ones we've already seen him receive from this beating, I'm kinda worried he's either going to be strangled or buried alive...
'That grave always looked disturbed'.
Hooooooo boy I've been listening to a bunch of podcasts about urban legends and that ain't the best of signs...
Especially knowing what did end up happening to Daniel. :P
Rotten Earth
The bottom panels are shortly after Wayne mockingly sang that “Oh Danny Boy” song (beginning of chapter 5 you can see that little flashback).

Random insert: I like the structure of his face in the last panel; it's really chiseled.

This page gives me so many chills; him just casually recalling his death is freaking eerie. O.O
Daniel's Grave
And so Daniel continues his happy tale of fun times.
