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.

All the work to make better looking hands for a close-up and someone plays an UNO reverse card. SMH, there ain't no fairness sometimes.
Happy Canada Day!

Though it's safe to say that one particular Canadian is having a rather miserable day here... poor Shade, can't even enjoy a simple soccer game without having one of his employees abducted by sinister supernatural forces.
