Seven dwarfs were enjoying retirement after an arduous life of monster hunting when a young witch, named Snow, seeks shelter on their mountain. Too thick-headed to notice what's the matter with her, the dwarfs will have to fight their way out of a grizzly situation in order to survive and, who knows, maybe even earn some coin. Following the fifty-six paged titular tale are five short comics cut from the same cloth: playfully nodding to old nursery rhymes and folktales while telling dark, new stories that expand on the world of the Seven Dwarfs. These comics existed in 2017 as part of the "Fallen Folktales" web comic, but now find new life in this first volume of "Seven Dwarfs".

12+ years. 95 story pages. Black and White. October 2018.

In this psychological thriller set in the Rocky Mountain wilderness, a small-town family loses a little girl to a pack of wolves and lays the blame on Susan Renner, a passionate spokesperson for gray wolf protections. Kevin Hudson, a hardened professional tracker, has been hired to exterminate the wolf pack but instead finds himself with no supplies, fighting to escape the wolves and protect Susan. As the situation grows more dire and the small-town family closes in, Kevin's survival mentality becomes increasingly more disturbing and threatens his ability to protect the woman he wishes to save.

The original five-issue series was the first comics ever created by Isaac Crawford and are collected here as a graphic novel. As such, the art evolves substantially over the course of the book and provides a rare look at a developing artist while maintaining a gripping story.

For 17+ years. 126 story pages. December 2016.
