Being dead is easy – but being Death on the other hand …
It’s part of our lives and there’s no way around it – whether we like it or not, someday, everyone has to face it: …death.
What we call “death” is just another job that has to be done by someone… In the past they were called reapers or demons, lost souls that gather the souls of the dead and guide them to the afterlife. One particular demon doesn’t always like his job – and with modern technology he has a lot of things to distract himself from the duty he was tasked to do.
He drinks, parties and let’s other do the dirty work for him. But sometimes, he takes his job serious, stays with the souls he guides and listens to their stories. One day, he meets a soul that is about to turn his view of life and death upside down.
Join the misadventures of the main characters Zak, Chris and Vivi as they try to handle life in a way they’ve never imagined.
“MAY YOU BE IN HEAVEN HALF AN HOUR BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD.”
“Keep Me Alive” is a webcomic about life, death and the everyday craziness. The events and people are fictional and any resemblance to person living or dead is purely coincidental. Any mention of celebrities and stars are definitely on purpose, though. Only my nerves and some friendships were killed during the creation of this website, the comic, the text passages and things that are about to come.
On a serious note: This comic is a hobby of mine. I like to draw and my head is full of stories that – if I don’t write them down – are probably forgotten and since I’m pretty bad at writing stories as novels, but good at drawing people and stuff, I decided to start a comic about it. “Keep Me Alive” is not supposed to be a graphic novel, but it will have parts that are connected as story elements or chapters. I hope you have as much fun and enjoyment reading it that I have with drawing and coming up with new stuff.
Music plays a large part when it comes to some pages of the comic. Some songs inspire me so much, I have several pages in my mind while listening to them. So if you see a small note “Music to listen to” or some notes below the comic, make sure to listen to the song. It’s (hopefully) helping to deliver the atmosphere of the current page. The same goes for “Alone Made of Ice” by Maldito, which has basically become the title theme for the project – I think it fits very well.
