Synopsis: “A wrong turn down a dead end road. A car that won’t start. An unspeakable evil emerges from the darkness. No phones. No weapons. No escape. Think you’ve seen this all before? Think again. When a girls softball team takes a shortcut through the Florida Everglades, they veer off the path towards a night they’ll never forget – drinking, dancing – one last hurrah before college starts and they go their separate ways. When they stumble into a trap set by a murderous cult, the stage is set for a night of blood-soaked carnage, but the cult has never dealt with victims who are ready to fight back.”
So it seems that scream horror even applies down to the Florida Everglades when a female softball team figures to head down there to veer to a shortcut, only to find themselves in a trap set by a death cult. Thing is though, does this cult realize these gals are willing to fight back? Somehow I don’t think things are going to end well here!

Synopsis: “The world as we knew it changed after the last of the great wars leaving a large portion of North America a dead wasteland. It’s in that wasteland that tales of a monster only known as Loggerhead exist. Within this wasteland valuable elements and minerals have been unearthed creating a hotbed of illegal mining and overrun with scavengers. When some children find themselves endangered while witnessing an illegal scavenger mineral hunt a protector rises from the murky depths of the wasteland to exact retribution. Featuring covers by Bryan Silverbax and a special variant cover by Walter Ostlie (Metalshark Bro!).”
So apparently a post-apocalyptic realm has created a savage wasteland waylaid by strange new elements and minerals as well as a fright known as the Loggerhead. When an illegal mining operation is witnessed by some wasteland youths and their very lives become threatened, the Loggerhead rises to take action.
