In the isolated Montana town of Hailstone, food is running low. Trapped in by relentless snow, the hungry and desperate townspeople come into conflict with the well-stocked military factory. And to make matters worse, a local girl -- Mary -- has just disappeared. Sheriff Denton Ross and his deputy Tobias step in to keep the peace, but their efforts start them down a dangerous path of investigation; into Mary's disappearance, the factory, and just what it is doing here in this isolated place, so far from the war.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau May 12, 2021

    I really liked the dynamic the creative team has set for the book. There is a man vs man, man vs government, man vs nature, and a man vs self element to it. And usually, I would be overwhelmed with the bleakness of such a story but in this case, I'm intrigued to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Hailstone #1 is a great first issue to a series! The characters were interesting and engaging, I enjoyed the dynamic and tension between Sheriff Denton and Captain Spencer so I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes. Additionally, the mystery behind who is stealing the girls is intriguing especially with the possibility of the army being behind it or covering it up. Could it be some new experimental technology or something related to enhanced humans or beasts to help with the war effort in the south? All intriguing questions and I'm excited to be on this short five-part miniser more
