Last week on Twitter, I did a poll to see if people were interested in learning the title of my horror comic. I’ve known what it is since 2015, and my patrons have known it since 2016, but I’ve yet to reveal it publicly. I always feel weird referencing this series as simply “my horror comic,” so even though it’s nowhere near ready to debut yet, I wondered if I should just go ahead and spill what it’s called already. Because I’m one of the most indecisive people you’ll ever meet, I left the decision up to fate, hence the Twitter poll.
Most said, “Yes.”
Needless to say, I’m doing a title reveal today! First, though, I’m going to refresh you all on what my horror comic actually is, since 20% of my pollers had never even heard of it, despite me posting about it nonstop for two years. (Haha, welp.)
The comic stars Spencer, a nearsighted vampire, and Jay, a diabetic dhampir. They have shenanigans. (Some bloody, some...not.) Jay’s older sister Tess does not approve of these shenanigans. She’s been anti-vampire since childhood, thanks to their dad becoming one, and wants to keep Jay out of that world.
Besides the main series—which I expect to be two volumes long—there will be side stories that explore certain characters more intimately. (One focuses on Spencer’s descent into vampirism, during the winter of 1955, for example.) While this series definitely delves into the more comedic side of horror, it’s still dark—darker than most of my concept art will allow—so expect it to be tragic at times, too.
Also expect it to be called The Undeath of Me, ‘cause that’s what the title is.
That’s it, you ask? Yeah, that’s it. Apologies if you thought the title was going to be a lot grander, after two years of me hiding it. I’m quite fond of it and feel this fits the comedic tone of the series, so I hope you all like it, too...
