“One of the best new horror books I’ve read in a long time. It’s horror done inspiringly, terrifyingly right. Don’t miss out.”—Scott Snyder, Batman

BOOM! Studios announced today that SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1, the first issue of the highly anticipated new horror series from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Woods, Justice League) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land), has sold out at the distributor level before its debut on September 4, 2019 at comics shops.

In order to meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios is fast-tracking the release of SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT, featuring an all-new cover by rising star artist Dani Strips (Coffin Bound), so it can arrive in comic shops on September 11, 2019.

SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN is about a close-knit community rocked by a series of murders and the sudden appearance of Erica Slaughter, a mysterious figure who rides into town claiming she can stop the brutal murders turning their lives upside down.

But the local police and authority figures don’t know what to make of this dangerous outsider who claims to believe the local kids and their rumors of monsters in the woods. Can they trust this so-called “monster” hunter with their children’s lives? Or is Erica Slaughter an unhinged killer who’ll only bring more tragedy into their midst?
