    One girl. Five ghosts. A lot of unfinished business!

    Bree is a nerdy college girl who moves into a house that's filled with ghost guys. Since she's the only one who can see them, she has to help each of them resolve their unfinished business!

    "A lighthearted graphic ghost story with substance."
    ~Kirkus Reviews

    "One of the most unabashedly fun comics I've read this summer." ~The Manga Critic"

    "Delightfully charming... A great spin on the typical harem -style of manga story-telling."

    I goof’d, guys.

    I accidentally forgot to update something in the pages I just published. Unfortunately, it’s a pretty important detail that’s going to be revisited in later chapters so I’ve uploaded the correct files. It’s not that obvious a change but it is important enough to the story so I’m bringing it up here for transparency.

    And I’m not telling what detail it is! ^_~



    Updates are back!

    September 19, 2017

    New crew I work with at Skylanders Academy

    Thanks for your patience, everyone! We’ve got a bunch of updates coming up. Hoping I can keep this momentum going for a little bit.

    If you follow me on Patreon, there’s some more exciting news there regarding two non-Polterguys-related comic projects I’m working on.

    I know, I know- “WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS, LAUR” GEEZ. It’s more like, I recently made the calculations and by the time I finish Polterguys, I’m gonna be 50. FIVE-ZERO. I kinda want to work on other stories, too? So, I’ve been taking baby steps to make other stories along with progressing with this comic’s pages.

    Finally, I wanna know your favorite Polterguys character. I get a big kick out of those Shonen Jump Popularity illustrations and kinda want to make my own. I have a feeling I know who’s gonna be No. 1? But we’ll see! XD

    Who’s your favorite Polterguys character?

    Bree (nerdy girl)
    Alex (the grumpy twin)
    Ben (the nice twin)
    Frankie (the jock)
    Doug (the smart kid)
    Simon (the baby)
    Clive (the demon)


    Intermittent Updates Part Deux

    March 1, 2017

    I’m not on this show. I just understand how they feel right now.

    I saw my last update post on this website and I’m sheepish ’cause that’s all I seem to be talking
    about lately! Apologies, everyone! 😅

    So, I’m two months in at my new job at DreamWorks and there are a few things that will need my attention in the next few weeks. There’s a new class, extra income opportunities and portfolio updates to work on so I’m getting a little stretched thin.

    Once again, I’m not sure when regular updates will resume but I can only hope it won’t take as long as the last major hiatus when I moved from Michigan.

    Thanks for understanding and hey, I really appreciate your interest in my little project!

    Intermittent Updates

    June 1, 2016

    Hi everyone, my apologies for missing updates lately. I’m in the middle of a lot of things – I’ve been taking classes and storyboard tests and attempting to reassess Vol. 2’s storylines. I still can’t say when updates will resume but I hope you check back in when it does!

    Thanks for understanding.


    April 11, 2016

    Hi guys!

    Gonna take a short break to replenish my buffer. It took a hit from this class I was taking since February so I need some time to build up pages again.

    Don’t worry, it shouldn’t be as long as the last one! Hahaha (I hope.)

    Polterguys updates again!

    January 19, 2016

    OK, here’s the deal, guys. I really want to get this book done as soon as humanly possible but I have a full-time job, night classes and homework coming up in the next few months. Realistically, there’s a good chance updates are not going to be as regular as the first book. When I was working on Vol. 1, I was unemployed and able to dedicate 14 hours a day nearly 7 days a week on it.

    This time around, I might run out of buffer again but I’m really going to do my best to at least put something out every week.

    Again, thanks so much for sticking around! I’m pretty excited to get this story out to you guys soon!




    Polterguys now has a Patreon page!

    I’m back!
    Now that I’m settled in a new place here in LA, I can finally get back to the business of comics! I’ve decided to finally set-up a Patreon campaign so I can let you guys help me create more Polterguys pages and art. Please check it out and consider helping out other artists as well!

    While I don’t have an update when pages will go back up, I’ll be doing my best to build up a considerable buffer again to avoid hiatuses like this one in the future. Again, thanks so much for your patience, everybody.

    I hate to be that webcomic but I’m gonna have to be that webcomic- Polterguys will go on a bit of a hiatus after Chapter 1 wraps up.

    This will not be an indefinite hiatus since I am committed to finishing this book. Vol. 2 is already thumbnailed and sketched out. It’s just a matter of smoothing out scenes and executing the pages on my end.

    But I have to prioritize preparing for my move back to California and preparing a working portfolio to get into the animation industry. I have a day job so I don’t have much time to dedicate to extracurricular projects outside of working hours and I like to give projects my focused attention. I’ve been taking a class on storyboarding lately and it’s been quite fun and challenging. I hope to share some of my work on Twitter and Tumblr soon.

    I expect to resume posting once I build a sizable buffer again by late summer. By then, I’m hoping to be settled back in Los Angeles and have more time to work on Polterguys. Sorry for the inconvenience and hope to talk to you all of you guys soon!

    Mobile Issues

    January 20, 2015

    Hey guys!

    We’ve been running into a few issues with the site on mobile devices for a little bit there. My super web guru Lissa helped me create a mobile-version for the site so if you’re still having any problems with your reading experience, feel free to let us know!


    Welcome to the new home page for Polterguys!

    June 23, 2014

    Hi guys,

    Look at this shiny new site! I’m so happy to present a new home for Polterguys on the web.

    In 2011, I cobbled together all my HTML knowledge, crammed a few tutorials and attempted to build and host my own webcomic homepage. When the plug-in I was using for the comic database died, it took down my entire website around it.  Now, thanks to the wonderful help of my friend Lissa, we’ve got a dedicated and much more stable space for future volumes of Polterguys!

    For now, my update schedule is going to be Tuesdays here on my site and Thursdays on Inkblazers.com. And I will be staggering social media updates throughout the week. I know updating once a week is a bit of a tough sell for long-format comics but I don’t have that much of a buffer despite my best efforts! Thanks for your patience and understanding. I truly appreciate you all checking out my humble little comic.

    I’m currently working on Vol. 2 pages around the clock (outside the day job) so I don’t really have that much extra time for regular blogging. But I do want to try and squeeze one in every month or so!

    What would you like me to write about? Interested in knowing a bit more about my work process? Or maybe some of the challenges of self-publishing comics?

    Sound off below! I’d love to hear from you guys!
