The Corpse Door

An dead man comes back to life in The Corpse Door, a creepy comic by Kris Sayer.

A wealthy Norseman has passed away – and returned as a draugr. While he may very much be the walking undead, he is still plagued by the attributes of life; he only wants to get out of the cold, eat some food…why will no one help him get through the corpse door and back into his house?

The Corpse Door

If there was a comic-hill that Kris Sayer would die on, it’d be The Corpse Door. (Only it wouldn’t be a hill, it’d be a barrow, surrounded by Viking zombies). She first wrote The Corpse Door for Gurukitty Studios in 2011, as a ‘test’ to see if she could actually complete and publish a comic. While Sayer accomplished this, she wasn’t satisfied with her art. So she redid it in 2013. And frantically redid it again, just in time for TCAF 2014. She was finally satisfied…until she uploaded a slightly-animated version in 2015, and decided that one day, she’d have to redo it.

That day finally came, and The Corpse Door, Version 4 (aka Corpse Door Once More, With Feeling) was finally created and set to print in 2017. With that comic in her hands, she properly sacrificed one to ensure that the story never rises again. The Corpse Door Version 4 made it’s convention debut in 2017, and was posted online in 2018.

There are several different versions of The Corpse Door available for you to read online. There’s the slightly-animated-and-thus-black-comedy-styling of The Corpse Door 3 and also The Corpse Door 2 are available to read online.
