''Mr. Crypt'' is an American comic book published in 2017 by Creator/AlternaComics and created by Troy Vevasis. It was initially released as a three-part mini-series in 2017 and 2018 with art by Alexsandar Jovic.

The title character is a [[DemBones sentient skeleton]] animated by a bolt of lightning. He lives in a shack by the graveyard on the edge of an unnamed town along with his friend, [[NonHumanSidekick a rodent named Baron Rat]]. When not being chased by angry villagers, Mr. crypt gets into various misadventures.

Baron Rat is going to have a SpinOff set for release in September 2018.

!!This comic includes examples of the following tropes:

* CharacterTitle: Both Mr. Crypt and the Baron Rat SpinOff
* DemBones: Mr. Crypt
* GagSeries: Focuses exclusively on humor with a skeleton in a PaperThinDisguise getting into wacky hijinks.
* HawaiianShirtedTourist: Mr. Crypt becomes this in the third issue when he heads to a tropical island for a vacation.
* HollywoodNatives: A comedic example - Mr. Crypt and explorer Bartholomew Candlewax encounter them on a tropical island in the third issue.
* HorrorComedy: The comic's genre; definitely a comedy-dominant variety.
* NiceHat: Mr. Crypt wears one as does the vampire hunter Godfrey.
* NonHumanSidekick: Baron Rat, Mr. Crypt's friend
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Zigzagged with Sofia and Ivan, the vampires Godfrey hunts. Mr. Crypt destroys Sofia by shattering a ring on her finger, leading to her body disintegrating. Ivan gets destroyed by garlic, a standard vampire weakness, when Mr. Crypt hurls it into the vampire's mouth.
* PaperThinDisguise: Mr. Crypt wears a hat, fake moustache and coat when out in town.
* StockAnimalDiet: Played straight when Mr. Crypt buys Baron Rat a hunk of cheese to eat
* TorchesAndPitchforks: Another trope played straight as Mr. Crypt frequently finds himself chased by angry villagers wielding these along with weapons like knives, axes, etc.
* VampireHunter: Godfrey, who shows up in the second issue, is one of these. Mr. Crypt claims to be one too upon meeting Godfrey and joins forces with him. HilarityEnsues.
