The Long-Awaited Return of Erica Slaughter in SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #21
Discover a Terrifying New Monster and the Deadly Consequences of Betrayal in March 2022
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #21, the first issue of a brand new story arc in the Eisner Award-nominated horror series from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth, The Nice House on the Lake), artist Werther Dell’Edera (Razorblades), colorist Miquel Muerto (House of Slaughter), and letterer AndWorld Design (We Only Find Them When They’re Dead). Erica Slaughter is BACK and on the trail of a mysterious new monster… available in March 2022.
One year later, after the events of Archer’s Peak, Erica Slaughter resurfaces to take on the case of a girl who’s seen a new kind of monster, one with terrifying implications. . . But she’s broken ties with the House of Slaughter—and that can have deadly consequences. The Order of St. George does not forget nor do they forgive. Even as Erica goes on the hunt, she must keep an eye out for the mysterious figure on her trail in order to survive the coming storm.
SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #21 features main cover art by series artist Werther Dell’Edera and variant cover art by fan favorite artists Jenny Frison (Catwoman), Dan Mora (Klaus), Gabriele Dell’Otto (Moon Knight), and Vincenzo Riccardi (Seven Secrets).
