A comic about growing up, university life, and the monsters in your closet.
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
When you've got an entire hidden world of monsters, myths and magic, you've gotta come up with some way to keep the mundane masses from sussing it out...
Bane's idea of having his students work at a Halloween-themed novelty store was an absolute stroke of genius in this regards. Most weirdness can just be handwaved away as "just another product we're testing," and sleepers will buy it hook, line and sinker!
