The Shrouded College will give you magic... but you'll incur a debt. Until it's paid, you belong to them. Married couple Maia and Sebastian Stone took that deal. They have worked for the College ever since, using their new abilities to track down 666 cursed coins: qurrakh... aka, the Devil's Dollar. Only a few remain. The Stones are almost free... but the devil's in the details.

Hellboy meets Indiana Jones in this supernatural adventure from CHARLES SOULE (EIGHT BILLION GENIES, UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY) and WILL SLINEY (Spider-Man).

    It's already too much to accept the concept that it seems you're working just to make a living.

    If you're looking for a story that has mystery, action, suspense, and thriller,Hell To Pay is the way to go. From the first pages to the end of the issue, you're going to wish that they released it as a graphic novel because the first issue alone makes you feel like you just got a teaser and left wanting more!

    Hell to Pay #1 has a lot of potential. An interesting concept is given a boost by a time aspect upping the stakes of it all. It's a fun start that's worth checking out for those interested in action films of the 90s. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Nov 5, 2022

    Once Hell to Pay #1 gets going, there is plenty of action and a solid setup to lead us further into the story. What is even more interesting is that there are plans for Shrouded College to be the center of different stories. In that case, I can forgive some of the extra time spent in world-building because there is an entire world to be built upon. Read Full Review
