Brock of the Undead
is a Fan Webcomic Spin-Off
of Braceface Fangface
. It serves as both a P.O.V. Sequel
and as well as a continuation of the comic. As the title suggests, the story focus on Brock Leighton (the Black Best Friend
of the main characters in the series) who meets his death at the hands of Storm, a local new kid in Elkford, upon discovering hes a vampire master and has a harem of female vampires in his basement. Brock shortly after resurrects as an vampire himself, finding himself become a newfound servant in Storm's undead coven. The comic follows him as experiences his new life as a walking blood drinking corpse, serving his vampire master who's no older than he is (or rather was), skirting the line between his usual personality and his vampire side and the changes of being forever young albeit in a monstrous form in the shell of his former body.
Can be found on Drunk Duck
, as well as SmackJeeves.
Brock of the Undead provides the following tropes:
- First Episode Resurrection: Albeit In Medias Res, the comic reuses some strips from Fangface to show how Brock got bitten.
- P.O.V. Sequel
- Sliding Scale of Vampire Friendliness: Vampires can be nice here and retain their personality if turned (as Brock did) but the urge to feed is quite strong and all morality goes out the window when it happens. On his feeding of Maria, Brock wrestles with himself if it's right or not, but eventually settles that "hey he's a vampire, no point in fighting it" and gives in to his monstrous side.
- Transhuman Treachery: Brock takes to being a vampire very quickly, his first act is to bite his girlfriend Maria and obeying Storm with no questions.
