We're Back!

Good news, everyone!

Under the autumn moonlight, Horror Shop is awakening from slumber to once again haunt your comic feeds--like all the other seasonal Halloween shops!

We're planning on releasing new comics regularly once again here. It might not be at the same clip as before, as we get back into the swing of things and fit this around our current jobs. But you can expect at least two new strips a month, usually released on Tuesdays. The next one is coming out this Tuesday, so keep your third eye open for it.

Our plan is to finish off Chapter 3 by the end of 2022. But that's not going to be end--we've got several more chapters sketched out here. So you can expect more Horror Shop for the foreseeable future--we've barely scratched the surface of Port Salem, and we're eager to share more with you all.

So keep your eyes (or other applicable ocular organs) peeled for more adventures--same horror time, same horror channel!

Chapter 3 Is Howling Along

Hey there bogies and ghouls!

In case you haven't seen our latest comics yet, we'd just like to inform you all that Horror Shop's third chapter, Cry Wolf, has now started its release. We're planning to upload one strip a week every Thursday from now until next spring as we follow our motley band of monsters' investigation into the secrets of Port Salem. So stick us with us here, as things are about to get hairy!

Book 2 Wrap! Hiatus Until Mid-May

And so we've come to the end of the second book of Horror Shop! I hope you all enjoyed the ride as much as we on the production team did. 

With this fun cliffhanger, we're taking a step back from working on new comic strips for a couple of weeks. We'll be working on editing our previous strips, and getting the physical books prepared. While we won't be attending any conventions this year, we've still got Kickstarter backers who are expecting their hard copies, and a few comic stores who are interested in carrying our books. And so that's where our focus will be for the next few weeks.

We will be returning by the middle of May. Keep an eye on our page, as we'll be announcing the start date for Horror Shop: Call Wolf alongside that book's cover!

Stay safe and spooky everyone!

Horror Shop's on a Podcast!

Hey all, 

Figured I'd post this here as well, since not everyone follows us on social media. 

So I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Joshua Pantalleresco on his Aurora-award winning podcast Just Joshing. We talk about my creative process, building characters, urban fantasy, and the Horror Shop comic. 

If you're interested, give it a listen on Podomatic or wherever you listen to your podcasts.

Also, a big thanks to Joshua for the opportunity here. It's the first time I've been on this end of a podcast, and not working in a control booth, so it was a bit of an experience for me as well. 

Also, just a reminder, but you've got until Friday to support us on Kickstarter and get a print copy of Horror Shop Book 2: For Science! So don't wait!

Thanks all, and stay spooky,

Horror Shop Book 2 Kickstarter

Hey there, bogies and ghouls!

We've got a total of three strips left before we finish off Book 2 of Horror Shop. And you know that means, right?

It's Kickstarter Time!

We're hoping to get Book 2 published for April's Calgary Comic Expo. And we're hoping you'll help us reach this goal!

So help us in making the world a bit spookier and back Horror Shop: For Science! on Kickstarter today!

As an added bonus, we're hosting a LIVE QnA stream tomorrow as part of launching our Kickstarter here. So visit us from noon-4 pm Mountain Time (GMT -7) tomorrow, March 1st!

New Site, who this?

Hi all!

I'm happy to announce that we've successfully migrated to our new home on ComicFury! All of our current strips have been uploaded, and we'll begin releasing new ones this Thursday! 

I'm expecting we'll be finished Book 2 by February, after which we'll take a short break to revise some of Book 1 in advance of our second printing. We'll be releasing physical copies of Book 1 and Book 2 at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, April 23-26. After that, we'll dive straight in to Book 3! I honestly can't wait to show you all the cover that Marie's cooked up here.

Currently, we are planning on attending the following conventions in 2020:
  • Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, April 23-26 in Calgary, Alberta
  • Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo, May 2-3 in Regina, Saskatchewan
  • Panel One Comic Creators Festival, Summer in Calgary, Alberta
  • Calgary Horror Con, June 20-21 in Calgary, Alberta
  • When Words Collide, August 14-16 in Calgary, Alberta
If you're in the neighbourhood, we hope to see you! Otherwise, keep your eyes here for additional events and opportunities.

Stay spooky, everyone!
