A Buddhist Vampire Story by Sibauchi A Buddhist Vampire Story by Sibauchi
Too late for Halloween, but uploading it anyway. The idea came when I was discussing how religious stories deal with demons and other evil beings. While Christian stories usually kick out the demon  back to Hell or something, Buddhist stories often reform demons and turn them into underlings serving monks (Journey to the West) or even guardian deities of Buddhism (Hariti). Which is actually more scary in a way. (a friend pointed out that such stories make sense, considering  Siddhārtha's mercy even extended to Devadatta the Total Asshole Jerk Psychopath)

So naturally I thought vampire meets Buddhism=reformed Buddhist vampire. Which is probably why Hollywood wouldn't make this into a movie, but at least it makes a decent 4-cell comic:)
