Creepbury Close is a horror-sitcom-style comic series created by Topperhay and Granitoons and is updated on their webpages on DeviantArt. It focuses on the everyday (or night) lives of a suburb of various horror-based characters. Despite their creepy appearances and settings, they have the same ups and downs of any neighbourhood.

This series provides examples of the following:

  • Abandoned Hospital: Not exactly abandoned, but there's certainly not a lot of staff or patients there.
  • Ax-Crazy: Nurse Hearse - she's pretty psychotic and her weapon of choice is an axe.
  • Brawn Hilda: Seabury's cousin Rodica, to an extent.
  • Butt-Monkey: Mummy's Boy as he's generally the butt of anything that goes wrong.
  • Cool Old Lady: Grandma Sangria - the only relative Seabury seems to respect out of love rather than fear or duty.

  • Creepy Mortician: Dr. MacAbre, despite the fact that he is ostensibly a doctor.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Yorrick's whole personality and to a lesser extent, Count Araktiv.
  • Funny Foreigner: Chef Fibula is a comedy French chef.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Uncle Oaffe and to a lesser extent, Nurse Hearse.
  • Greasy Spoon: The Mummy's Cafe.
  • The Jeeves: Douglas the wise old oak tree is often consulted for advice.
  • Large Ham: Sir Colin Deadgrave the zombie actor is prone to over-acting.
  • Motor Mouth: Mummy Dearest - very much so, so much so that other characters find it difficult to get a word in edgeways at times.
  • My Beloved Smother: Mummy Dearest still treats her son like he was still a child much to his embarassment.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Basically, the entire cast, with the exception of the medics. Seabury is naughty, but he's not evil.

  • Only Sane Man: Count Araktiv is the nearest thing the comic has to a staightman.
  • Oop North: The Mummies - especially Mummy Dearest - despite being apparently Egyptian.
  • Poirot Speak: Chef Fibula's dialogue.
  • Proper Victorian Lady: Faye De Waye is patterned after demure Victorian femininity.
  • The Scottish Trope: The main plot focus of 'Acting The Ghost' where Sir Colin and Yorrick attempt to put a show of Macbeth but everything goes wrong.
  • The Scrooge: Dr. Mac Abre falls under the Miserly Scotsman type.
  • Spoiled Brat: Young Master Seabury, though he frequently get his comeuppance for his misdeeds.

How well does it match the trope?
