Welcome to SCAIRY TALES NOIR, home of "Fried Pickle Noir" and "Scairy Tales"!

Scairy Tales comic strip

"Scairy Tales: the not so scary fairy tales!" comic strip created, written and drawn by J.R. Mounts. Fun the whole family in a "Calvin and Hobbes meets The Nightmare Before Christmas" kind of way. Little misfit kids in the 1950's style town of Sunset dress up all year long as superheroes and monsters, their favorite! However, they get picked on a lot so their little group bands together for their only support. That is, until they discover that real  MONSTERS live across Troll Bridge in the town of Moonrise!
Catch all the fun in every episode!
