From Stout Club Entertainment writer Rafael Scavone (A Study in Emerald, Hit-Girl and Funny Creek) and illustrator Rafael de Latorre (Animosity, Black Widow and Daredevil) comes Hailstone, collecting the Comixology Originals 5-issue digital series in print for the first time.
In the isolated Montana town of Hailstone, cut off from the outside world by a brutal winter, food is running low and people are going missing. Desperate townsfolk turn to Sheriff Denton Ross and the nearby Military factory for help. But why is the factory here, so far from the war? And how is it able to supply the Union forces with the town cut off by snow? In their search for answers, Sheriff Ross and his deputy Tobias will discover dark secrets about the mysterious factory, their seemingly sleepy town, and Ross’ own past that will change their lives forever…. If they survive.

Cold Iron, collecting the 4-issue digital series from Comixology Originals in print for the first time, is a supernatural thriller steeped in Celtic mythology.
In Cold Iron, the Isle of Man is a place out of time. Steeped in Celtic myth, Viking history and Faerie folklore, it nestles in the Irish Sea midway between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales — though to aspiring singer-songwriter Kay Farragher, it feels a million miles from anywhere. She dreams of escaping the humdrum life of a sleepy backwater, and gives no credence to her grandmother’s old folktales and odd superstitions. But when she saves Mona — a traumatized girl, lost in the night of Hop-tu-Naa, or Manx Samhain — Kay quickly realizes this is no mere Halloween prank gone wrong. In the mossy glens and rainswept valleys of the island, the shadows of a forgotten past are gathering once more. There is another world, an older world, close by our own but out of reach. On this night the walls grow thin, and someone — or something — has clawed its way through. And it is here to hunt….
