Ghastly's Ghastly Comic is a webcomic by Chris Cracknell, A.K.A. "Ghastly" or "Uncle Ghastly", dealing with anime fetish and paraphilias. One of the most notable themes is tentacle erotica, as the subtitle of the comic is "Tentacle Monsters and the Women Who Love Them".

In July 2006, the author suddenly announced that the comic was indefinitely suspended, later clarifying that this was due to a serious illness. The comic is currently on an artist-imposed hiatus.


The plot begins with two tentacle monsters (their origins are not specified), Glemph and Nort, who hang around in a Canadian bar, "The Spanked Monkey". As it progresses they meet several people who have trouble fitting into normal society because of their deviant behaviour or sexual preferences, for example Freddy who is a transgender version of James from Pokémon and Sue who is trapped in a chibi form. The comic features a variety of cultural phenomena: Chick Tracts, Cthulhu and of course, tentacle rape.
