Blood is Mine is a horror themed Interactive Comic that started in 2017, written by Matthew Morgan. A Sprite Comic, Blood is Mine uses original sprites made by the author, rather than those from any particular video game. It starts with a nurse attempting to escape a hospital, but slowly spirals into a vaster mystery. It can be found here.

Has a redraw in progress titled Blood is Drawn. Can be found: here and here

Due to the nature of this comic, beware of unmarked spoilers, and trope names that spoil aspects of the comic.


This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Aerosol Flamethrower: In the first chapter, the protagonist makes a flamethrower out of insecticide, a lighter, and a super soaker.
  • Air-Vent Passageway: This is the main characters main method of transportation throughout the first chapter.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Chapter 2 opens not to the protagonist of the first chapter, but a completely new character named Fuse. The perspective switches back after he meets, and is infected by, the original protagonist.
  • Animate Body Parts: All the enemies in the first chapter are this.
  • Arc Words: Stretch thin and drink deep.
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: Though the protagonist is half human, she was hatched from an egg. The details of this are not given.

  • Bizarre Alien Senses: The protagonist can "sense" through objects she's put her blood into, like bandages or syringes. She can sense through them better if she's in physical contact with them. She can also use any senses of any living creatures her blood is inside.
  • Bloody Murder: The protagonist can control both living beings and inanimate objects as long as enough of her blood is inside it.
  • Body Horror: And plenty of it. Every monster in the first chapter is some grotesque amalgam of body parts.
  • Cloning Body Parts: Bioprinters like the one in the hospital in the first chapter are used for this.
  • Creepily Long Arms: One of the creatures in the first chapter is nothing but arms growing out of the floor and ceiling.
  • Designer Babies: Tube cops, like Michelle, are genetically engineered to be superior police officers.

  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Macland does this quite literally to Nil in chapter 5.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The protagonist, her mother, Nil, and the Mars creature.
  • Electromagnetic Ghosts: Imprints. Specifically, Edison, Tesla, and Faraday, they can walk through walls, float, and are made of active electromagnetic activity.
  • Eyeless Face: The red mostly communicates through a mouth. Just a mouth. One huge, toothy mouth growing out of the wall.
  • Fantastic Racism: Neither mutants nor genetically engineered law enforcement ("tube cops," or "lab meat") are respected as much as plain old humans.
  • Fantastic Drug: Level which calms you down, but complicates your organs if you get too physically worked up, cleantex which lets you remember absolutely everything and every single detail, and Save the Queen (or Queen for short), which makes you lose time and wake up in random places. There are other drugs too like Crawl, Gabriel, etc. but their effects are less explained.
  • Functional Magic: A combination of Rule-based Magic and Theurgy, users can create ritual circles with the right implements and chant to use various effects, most of these spells are facilitated by entities called 'tradesmen', who grant something when a trade is agreed upon, they also work as mediators between the user and bigger entities so that the user can call upon the entity's power without directly interacting with them.
  • Genius Loci: The Library, it is sapient, and can communicate with people when they reach a certain area.
  • Genre Shift: Happens in Chapter 2, shifting from horror to more Cyber Punk with a bit of horror. After that, it gets even weirder, as more aspects of the world and universe are uncovered.
  • Giggling Villain: Arvin Carpenter.
  • Kill It with Fire: Jane, Michelle, and Finch attempt to kill the bioprinter monster by throwing their squirt-gun flamethrower, which they've rigged to explode, at it.
  • Law Enforcement, Inc.: The entirety of the cops in the Blood is Mine world.
  • Lovecraft Lite: There exists Eldritch Abominations that can "drink deep of worlds," and other such entities, but since our main protagonist is also partly one of them, while retaining her compassion and humanity, it qualifies for this trope.
  • Mad Scientist: Arvin Carpenter not only started the hospital situation from the first chapter, but he keeps sending more bio-mechanical monsters after the protagonist.
  • Mexican Standoff: Michelle and another tube cop in chapter 2. It ends with the interference of an animated bedsheet.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: An attempt was made to inject the protagonist with a mind control serum. What it did instead was wake her up.
  • People Jars: Bunker B is full of these.
  • Vasquez Always Dies: Played with. Michelle is a vaguely Hispanic Action Girl that outright describes herself as expendable. She works for Vasquez Law Enforcement. She not only survives and becomes one of the main characters, she kills the very Vasquez the company is named after... a male Dirty Cop named Vasquez.
  • You Wake Up in a Room: In a hospital, specifically.
