''The Adventures of Shan Shan'' is a fantasy webcomic featuring fourteen-year-old Shan Shan, who has always been able to see and hear things that supposedly don't exist. After he is attacked by Karmavore -- a beast created from evil deeds -- he is offered a chance to become a Guardian of the universe. He's not really sure he's cut out for it. But together with Cassie, Adam and Backpack, he hopes to overcome all the ordeals of becoming a hero, saving the world and being a teenager.
