Okay I've got a project I could use some help with.
I want to research and do a comic about every type of undead there is. I'm not talking about D & D undead, however. I'm talking about actual cultural/mythological undead, ghosts, vampires etc.
I'll be doing research on the culture that created them, the time period the mythology came from things like that.
Here's where I need help. What types of undead are out there? Every culture has had them. But I need examples and origins things like that.
Origin: Haiti, Voodoo, African Religions
Time period the mythology comes from: ?
Actual historical descriptions of the creature/powers/lore: ?
I'll be making comics about this and will happily give you credit for the help you give.
Things to research so far.
Zombies (of Course)
Ghouls (Middle Eastern Monster)
Chinese Vampires (Jiang Shi or the hopping vampire or zombie)
Draugr (Norse mythological undead not the ones from Skyrim)
Maybe I'll even make a poster about all these. What do you guys think?
