''[[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/ Finder's Keepers]]'' is an UrbanFantasy webcomic focusing on the exploits of Cardinal, [[{{OverlyLongName}} Lord and Aspect of the Primary Directions and some other stuff]], and Cailyn Asher, the owner of his SoulJar through a bit of poor choice of words. Now she's being chased by {{Living Shadow}}s, meeting The {{Powers That Be}} face to face, and discovering that [[{{FantasyKitchenSink}} pretty much every myth she's ever heard is true... but not always the way she heard it.]]

''Finder's Keepers'' is written and drawn by Garth Cameron Graham, also the author of the now-ended SliceOfLife webcomic ''Comedity''.

Not to be confused with ''Series/FindersKeepers'', the {{Nickelodeon}} game show of the same name.
----
!!Tropes in Finder's Keepers include:

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: The ''Cutting Edge''. Remember that "many things on this side [of the Veil] are more '''literal''' than you might imagine."
** FridgeLogic: It is the line between theory and reality, between what is defined and what isn't, between open and locked, perhaps between ''knowing and not knowing.'' It seems Lady Death has given ''the key'' to the answer to all questions right at the start of the story but no-one is the wiser.
* BazaarOfTheBizarre: The Wyrd Bazaar.
* BiggerOnTheInside: Morlock's shop. According to Cardinal, "Doors don't have to open to the '''same''' place on both sides."
* BilingualBonus: Sort of. If you know how to read Tarot, then you can see exactly why it is that the fortuneteller in Chapter 5 reacted the way he did.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve
* CouldSayItBut: Robin leans on this [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&cid=5&chap=7 here.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Cailyn, mixed with enough GoodOldWays style [[TheFairFolk Fey]] terminology that she instantly gets on Robin's good side.
* ExactWords: Cailyn refuses to surrender Cardinal's SoulJar until she knows exactly what's going on. Now Cardinal can't take it back from her until the Umbra explain why they're after him... something they seem reluctant to do.
* FantasyGunControl: [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=world Justified]](scroll down).
* FantasyKitchenSink: "Every myth, every belief, every dream, every nightmare, they all are residents of this side. The Veil separates the Every-Day from the Every-Daydream. If Humanity has dreamt it up, you'll find it lurking around here somewhere."
* FieryRedhead: Cailyn.
* FirstEpisodeResurrection: The story begins with a flashback of Cardinal dying, and Cailyn claiming his soul as a result.
* [[ForgotICouldFly Forgot I Could Find Literally Anything]]:
-->'''Cailyn:''' I can '''take care''' of myself.
-->'''Cardinal:''' So you keep saying. Yet, I still don't like it. How will I '''find''' you afterward?
-->''({{Beat}})''
-->'''Cardinal:''' Oh. '''Right.''' Nevermind.
* GenreSavvy: Cailyn. Not only does she pick up on things quick, but she remembers legends and myths told to her by her grandmother that prove quite useful when they start coming true.
* GreenEyedRedHead: Cailyn again.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Cardinal.]]
* HeroesWantRedHeads: &c
* LetsSplitUpGang: [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&cid=18&chap=2 Invoked]] by Cailyn. Cardinal points out that would be TemptingFate. Cailyn replies that they're ''trying'' to find Fate.
* LiteralMinded: EVERYTHING on the Other Side of the Veil is. Intentionally.
* LivingShadow: The Umbra.
* MeaningfulName / OverlyLongName: Cardinal the Finder, Lord and Aspect of the Primary Directions, second son of the Lord Navigator, great-grandson of The Seeker.
* NightmareFuel: Something is just wrong about Robin's [[LargeHam "BECAUSE IT'S TRUE!!"]] face [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&cid=24&chap=2 near the end of Chapter Two]]. ''*SHUDDER*''
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Cardinal. He's flirted with Cailyn, but he's utterly unaffected by [[PerkyGoth Lady Death]] taking a stretch. On his lap.
** Complete with UnsoundEffect.
* PerkyGoth: Death. She may [[ShoutOut seem]] [[{{Sandman}} familiar]].
* PowersThatBe: So far two have been introduced - Lady Scarring, Aspect of Natural Healing, and Death herself; a possible third, the Earth Mother, has been mentioned, [[spoiler:as has a for-sure fourth, Fate.]]
** And, to be painfully exact, the term "PowersThatBe" is used to describe what are apparently the most powerful beings in the comic's setting. There are 9 total, listed in [[AllThereInTheManual the world description page]]: Bliss, Suffering, Order, Chaos, Energy, Matter, Life, Death, and Void.
* ShoutOut: Oh where to ''begin''...
** [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&chap=3&cid=19 Guardian]] bears a strong resemblance to TheDresdenFiles Morgan. Of course, some of that resemblance is lost when [[spoiler:[[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&chap=3&cid=20 Cailyn pisses him off]].]]
** A merchant in the bazaar says to a customer, "We don't sell [[{{Erfworld}} dwagons]], just the regular kind."
** Puck chides Cailyn for assuming he would have humanity by reminding her that he ''isn't'' human, and that this wasn't some [[Literature/{{Twilight}} supernatural teen romance]].
* SlasherSmile: Morlock's grin is ''creeeeeeeepy''.
* SoulJar: Cardinal's compass.
* SwissArmyWeapon: The Cutting Edge [[spoiler: can [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&chap=3&cid=16 unmake you]], relocate you via [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&chap=3&cid=16 emergency reality surgery]], and [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&cid=23&chap=6 lock doors if thrown at them, apparently.]] It's also a [[ShoePhone bitchin']] [[http://www.finderskeepers.gcgstudios.com/?p=comic&cid=3&chap=2 bracelet]].]]
* TheFairFolk: Pixies are dicks.
** And Robin Goodfellow is a sly little ******.
* TheGrimReaper: The Reapers fit the trope more than Death herself.
* TheMorlocks: Or more accurately, Old Man Morlock, who dismisses Cailyn's inquiry about [[{{The Time Machine}} stalking Eloi]] as "They're not ''nearly'' as good eatin' as you'd think." Runs a weapon shop in the Wyrd Bazaar.
* TricksterArchetype: Robin Goodfellow, the one and only.
* UnflappableGuardian: Boris Alexander Charkov, Canid Guardian of the Earth Mother.
* UnusualEuphemism: Cardinals tend to be navigation-based: "Compass and Cross, Cailyn!"
* UrbanFantasy: At least it started that way. Now that they've moved to the Other Side of the Veil it might become more traditional.
