This comic features a wide variety of characters with different backgrounds and life experiences. These issues will be explored in detail, and the story has a rather strong horror element. You can see where this is going. Many of these depictions will be potentially upsetting in nature, so imagine there is a “trigger warning” across the whole comic.

Consider yourself warned.

Dear Children is a webcomic that is equal parts drama, mystery, and horror.

Cailin Carver and her group of friends live in Hearthbrook, Massachusetts, a coastal town that was once a supernatural tourism hotspot, although in recent times the general public has accepted these traditions as mere hoax. These friends belong to their school’s journalism club, but use all of its equipment in order to investigate mysteries and rumors, hellbent on proving that their town’s history is anything but ordinary. One night, while investigating a local graveyard for signs of witchcraft, they happen upon a very strange and very skeletal altar, and the following day a student in their grade dies under mysterious circumstances. Together with whoever they can get along for the ride, they set out to solve the mysteries that seem to be arising from every dark corner in their seemingly placid town.

They wanted proof. They should have been more careful what they wished for…
