HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER #11 New Creative Team

Tate Brombal Returns to Bestselling Hit Series HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER with New Artist Antonio Fuso

Brand New Creative Team & Story! Discover What Happened to the Fan Favorite Butcher in January 2023

BOOM! Studios today announced the launch of a brand new story within the bestselling horror anthology series, HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER #11, set in the world of the Eisner Award-winning  phenomenal hit series SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, from the minds of award-winning writer James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth, The Nice House on the Lake) and co-creator Werther Dell’Edera (Razorblades), written by Tate Brombal (Behold, Behemoth), illustrated by highly acclaimed artist Antonio Fuso (Stargazer), colored by Miquel Muerto, and lettered by AndWorld Design, which sees the return of the fan favorite ex-hunter Jace Boucher as he embarks on a brand new mission to keep not only himself but his young charges alive in the face of a looming danger. Available in January 2023.

No longer the monster hunter he once was and unaware of Aaron’s fate, Jace’s new mission is to protect the orphans under his care. But one of these children may be in even worse danger than Jace knows, as a strange pair of eyes watches him from the woodland shadows… Can Jace lay down his overwhelming rage and guilt long enough to save them all from the terrifying threats that surround them?

Tate Brombal is an Eisner- and GLAAD Award-nominated comic book writer from Toronto, Canada. Since publishing his first book in 2020, Tate has written the commercially and critically successful House of Slaughter and Barbalien: Red Planet, as well as launched creator-owned titles such as Behold, Behemoth and The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos. You can find Tate on Twitter and Instagram @TateBrombal. 

“I’m BACK at the HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER, and it feels so…good?! I knew Jace Boucher was a special character when we created him, but I was still not prepared for the outpouring of love for this tragic, vengeful Legacy Hunter,” said Brombal. “That’s why I feel so privileged and excited to continue Jace’s story, as we take our prodigal son home to New Orleans where his past finally comes back to haunt him. Now, I leave you with one final question: Are you ready to meet The Butcher Shop?”

HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER #6 features main cover art by famed illustrators Mateus Manhanini (Wakanda) and co-creator Werther Dell’Edera with Miquel Muerto, as well as variant cover art by acclaimed artist Danny Luckert (Shock Shop). 

Antonio Fuso is a comic book artist and illustrator living in Rome, Italy. He co-created Wyrd at Image Comics and has drawn titles such as James Bond 007 for Dynamite, G.I.Joe and Drive for IDW, and Judge Dredd for 2000AD. He has also illustrated covers for IDW, Valiant, Dynamite, Heavy Metal and Dark Horse. You can find Antonio on Instagram at @antoniofuso.

“Each new book makes the world created by James and Werther wider and more fascinating, and I am truly proud to help expand it even further. Welcome to the House of Butcher!” said Fuso.

Something is Killing the Children is the bestselling, Eisner Award-winning hit series created by acclaimed comics writer James Tynion IV and illustrator Werther Dell’Edera. It has sold over one million copies worldwide, has been nominated for Eisner, Harvey, and Ringo Awards, and garnered widespread critical acclaim. Readers and fans can find the first four volumes collecting the first twenty issues of the ongoing series in bookstores everywhere. 

“People fell in love with the complicated but beautiful relationship between hunters, rivals, and lovers Aaron and Jace in the first arc of HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER, so it’s with great excitement that we can say Jace’s journey in the Slaughterverse is far from over,” said Eric Harburn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “This time joined by the supremely talented Antonio Fuso, as well as the return of colorist extraordinaire Miquel Muerto and letterer AndWorld Design, Tate continues to breathe life into the messy humans at the center of the monster-hunting universe that James and Werther created, bringing heartbreak and action in equal measure.”
