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


'The Finleys' by Mounts & Garrett

Cursed to live in chum buckets, the Finleys are a rare breed of half-sharks that live among human society (because half a shark can’t swim!). Follow their “tails” in the strange and mysterious town of Bermuda! 

7-22-16 The Finleys issue #2 is NOW AVAILABLE!
Brought to you by me and my co-creator Chris Garrett, we invite you all to enjoy the further adventures of Wyatt Finley and his family as they travel all across the world on their way to Tahiti for vacation. In this issue, "Around the World in Ate-y Waves",  they go to Starbucks, meet up with Moby & Ahab and have PLENTY of JAWS references! Not only that but our fellow writer pal Chris Collins adds 4 pages of Fin Art to further the adventures of my Sharkinator character from issue #1! Come to any convention he and/or I are at and pick up a copy!
We guarantee...it's FINtastic!
Cheers,
J.R.
