Second Burial by MadLittleClown Second Burial by MadLittleClown

And a little story:

After WWII, when Iron Curtain was built and military training zones established here in Böhmerwald / Šumava, many villages were wiped out, their houses used as training targets for tanks or just destroyed, so people running away on west could not hide in them etc. In one of those destroyed villages there was chappell with bodies of glassmaker family. Soldiers got an order to clear out the chappell, so it could be used as observation post. So six soldiers pulled out corpses, rob them of family jewelry and - because they were bunch of drunken bastards - proceed to dance with them. At the end, they propped them against the wall and shot them to pieces.
But strange thing is - not long after that, one of the six soldiers died in military accident, and till half of the year, remaining five soldiers died of unknown disease. Probably from poison transferred from corpses.

I liked how poe-ish that story was, so i decided to make my own little version of it.

I try not to watch scary movies anymore but this story is like a good thriller.  It captures your attention and the comic is based on a true story.  Very good story telling.

Even though it's been just over a year since this was submitted, it has certainly stood the test of time. In my opinion, this most certainly deserves a Favorite.

The story is so wonderfully dark. And your artwork, absolutely amazing. Your artwork makes the story come alive. It's really fantastic. You got all the hues and shades so on point, I'm a little spooked myself. 

Awesome job! Love

People pay money to watch horror movies, jump-scare stuffs, and truth is... real horror stories happend in the history, maybe in our neighborhood. You just need to dig a little for a few story like this... Thank you for the sharing, another scary historical story is in my pocket.
(By the way, karma has a really cruel "humor".)

Úplnou náhodou jsem narazila na tuhle story. A při jejím prohlížení si říkám: sakra, to znám, tohle už jsem někde slyšela. A jak se to začalo rozvíjet, tak jsem si říkala, to je tanec s mrtvolami! A pak si čtu popisek a už jsem si jen pokyvovala hlavou a říkala jsem si wow a pak si říkam, sakra, ale ten příběh nemůže být ve světě tak znám. A hle, my mluvíme stejnou řečí :3

Pocházím ze Šumavy, takže je mi to blízké a o to víc mě chytlo u srdce, že to někdo tak nádherně zpracoval, musím to poslat našim, jestli to také poznají! :)

Amazing piece of work. I love the fact that you were inspired by a true story. As an archaeologist I can also see why they died. Yet the lore you made for it is far more greater.
