James Tynion IV & Werther Dell’Edera Launch The Shocking New Horror Series in September 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 8, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a new look at SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1, an all-new original series from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Woods, Justice League) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) about a close-knit community rocked by a series of murders and the first appearance of Erica Slaughter, a mysterious figure who rides into town claiming she can stop the brutal murders turning their community 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 community?
