Webcomic description

Life isn't easy for Caleb "Shade" Smith. Not only is he struggling to balance school, relationships, and his job as the manager of the Horror Shop in the Canadian city of Port Salem, British Columbia. But Shade is also a closet monster-in-training, still learning the ropes of the whole "haunting" business. And if that wasn't stressful enough, there's far more weirdness going on in Port Salem than anyone would have guessed. Things are about to get even more interesting for Shade and his band of misfit monsters.

Welcome to a world of magic, mystery and monsters.

Welcome to the Horror Shop


Full-time nerd, part-time wonk, sometimes witty, oftentimes late

Halloween has long been my favourite holiday--from the costumes to the cartoon specials to the decorations to the Ravenloft games my dad used to run. This comic--and indeed, the entire Horror Shop universe--is something of a tribute to the holiday, that special time of year where everything seems possible.

In the real world, I have a journalism degree with a double minor in intercultural communications and political science, which I am dutifully putting to work working as a digital marketer, political consultant, and webcomic author.

Thats a far too practiced speech for things.
Enjoy the utterly distracted wave because game is more important.

We all likely know someone like that.
If looks could kill...

Man, Shade, you really stepped into this one, didn't you. On one hand, someone you like. On the other, the mayor of the town. Yikes...

Ahh, yes, the joys of intra-family drama. And it looks like Shade unwittingly stumbled right into the heart of it.

Seems like he has a particular knack for that kind of thing.

This strip brought to you by Canada and too many conversations with friends that end up involving hockey rivalries.

Plus, I've gotta hit the "This comic takes place in Canada" button once in a while, don't I?
