Curse of the Vampire

Curse of the Vampire is a comic book based on the popular classic horror film Nosferatu (1922). The twist on this adaptation however, is that it is also a gospel tract about Jesus. How can a vampire comic be about Jesus? The modern approach to vampire folklore is to romanticize the vampire, but this story instead glorifies the self sacrificial love of Ellen, as she willingly gives herself to evil in order to be rid of the vampire and its curse. The vampire is presented as sheer evil. This is where the gospel themes (created perfect, broken by sin, a rescue plan of self sacrificial love, resurrection, and the relationship restored) comes into play.

This comic book is available now on etsy.com
