Webcomic / Braceface Fangface

Go To
Trading in the braces... for the undead!

Braceface! (The vampires have claimed me)
Bloody! (Must bite all I see)
Forever young!
Time for some undead fun!

A Fan Webcomic featuring the characters of Braceface, it was featured on the vampire-centic site VampYou as well as The Duck.

The comic has Sharon Spitz and her group making friends with a boy named Stormy after he runs into Sharon one day at school. After hanging out with the bunch for a few days, Stormy invites them back to his house since he has it to himself after his parents go off on a trip.

To say the least, the group end up finding out more about Stormy than they wish, and most won't make it out without a new hunger for blood. As those that fall to Storm's fangs, increasing HIS ever-growing army of undead and becoming instantly loyal to him, the survivors try to escape to warn the town. But even then it might not be enough to stop them, especially going up against former friends and family who are now monsters. Can Sharon and her remaining friends save Elkford before everyone in town gains their own pearly canines, bloodlust, and animalistic nature while submitting to Stormy's undead rule?

A great read if you're a fan of Braceface, vampires, or both in general. Can be read on The Duck as well as Vamp You and most recently Smack Jeeves.

Has a spin-off: Brock of the Undead

Tropes from the comic include:

  • Breaking and Bloodsucking: Maria is attacked by vampires and wakes up in an unfamiliar bedroom. Her boyfriend, Brock, has been turned and she's been offered as his first meal. They argue over the matter, and Brock gets some advice on being a proper vampire in the process, but he overpowers her and hypnotizes her into letting him drink.
  • Crash-Into Hello: How Sharon and Stormy first meet. It's even the title of that page.
  • Kiss of the Vampire: Brock gives Maria this before he feeds on her.
  • Pointy Ears: An indication if someone's undead. Usually shown when the characters are about to feed, otherwise they revert them to normal looking ears.
  • Shout-Out: To many things vampire-related. Brock's vamping is scene for scene of Bart's in The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror IV. Storm quotes Bram Stoker's Dracula just before he bites him. And Sharon finding Nina chained to a wall is reminiscent of a scene from The Satanic Rites of Dracula (aka Dracula and His Vampire Bride).
  • Sliding Scale of Vampire Friendliness: Storm is actually quite friendly with the characters despite his undead status He only turns Brock cause he and Maria had found his harem room and knew they would warn the others and expose his secret. He mentions he wasn't even going to bite them. And even after Brock joins, Storm still treats him like a friend, even chastising him for acting like a mindless monster when he trying to feed on Maria before coaching him on how to do it right.
  • Transhuman Treachery: Brock when he's turned into a vampire, instantly fitting in with Storm's coven. The fact that it's most made up of girls and that he could potentially have his own harem may also have something to do with it.
  • Unsound Effect: "CHANGE"
  • Vampire Monarch: Storm, of course.
