Hailstone Vol. 1: The Lost Children
A chilling horror-western thriller set in a remote town during the US Civil War.
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.

A killer winter in a closed valley, townsfolk disappearing, a beast in the forest and a mystery in the factory - I don't know what genre this is but I'm loving it and I'm hooked!

Hailstone delivers the goods as only the best Westerns can. The visually stunning period artwork by Rafael de Latorre alone is worth the price of admission, but add Rafael Scavone's engaging mystery and world building, and Hailstone is an instant hit.
