The new titles include RIVER OF SIN, ROOFSTOMPERS and THE WALK; print copies will be available direct to readers via and from participating comics retailers. 

A grieving father joins the parents of other murdered and missing children in their small town to hunt for the mysterious and potentially supernatural force that is responsible and uncovers an even more grisly conspiracy in RIVER OF SIN; a lone female game hunter gets more than she bargained for after she is rescued by a mysterious couple who receive sinister nighttime visitors known as the ROOFSTOMPERS; a visceral battle for survival more than a mile under the ocean ensues in THE WALK. 


Children are being found dead and mutilated in the woods. Alonso fears this might be the fate of his daughter. In a desperate hunt for answers, he and the other grieving parents must take matters into their own hands. Could it be the suspected Bruja, hungry for young blood, or is there a bigger secret among the townsfolk? Discover the truth in RIVER OF SIN by Kelly Williams and Chas! Pangburn. 


Far away from the pressures of being a surgeon in New York City, Cassie decides to take a solo hunting trip to Wyoming. There she is attacked and luckily rescued by a middle-aged couple living in an isolated cabin with their son. After weeks, she isn’t getting any better and she begins to question the couple’s motives and the strange nightly visits that they dismiss as the “Roofstompers.” 


Alice and her team of aquatic explorers are eager to study what lies beneath the Atlantic Ocean. Stationed at the Midnight Zone, 2000 meters below the surface; their supplies start to run out. In a dangerous expedition to survive, they must push through but soon realize that the ocean is more vast, dark, and mysterious than they could have ever imagined.
