Mystery House Comics is a small-press comics publisher in Boise, Idaho. Created to support and distribute our flagship series, "Shivertown," it quickly became apparent that comics are what we love to do, and we can't be limited to one series. Other ongoings, one-shots, miniseries, and graphic novels are in our future, so keep your eye out for the Mystery House logo. Along the way, we've also developed a passion for enhancing the local comics community, and bringing the tools, education, and experience of self-publishing to those with an interest who never thought they could do it on their own. Everyone has a million stories, we just want to help you tell them.
