The Most-Anticipated New Horror Comic Book Of The Year Debuts in September 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 7, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at the SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 variant cover by acclaimed artist and illustrator Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman), featuring the mysterious monster hunter, Erica Slaughter, who arrives in the middle of a string of startling deaths in a small, close-knit community rocked by the tragedies and consumed by fear. The first issue of the hotly-anticipated new series by award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Woods, Justice League) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) will be available on September 4, 2019.
In a sleepy town in the heart of America, children have started to die in horrific ways. The local police are mystified by the brutal murders, and frantic to catch the killer. But they refuse to believe reports of impossible creatures that lurk in the shadows snatching children and tearing them to pieces, especially since the only people who claim to have seen these so-called monsters are other children. Enter Erica Slaughter, a mysterious stranger who rides into town and claims she can solve their “monster” problem. But can the townspeople trust this dangerous outsider with their children’s lives? And more importantly, can the children trust this strange adult with their secrets?
SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 features cover art by series artist Werther Dell’Edera and a variant cover by artists Jae Lee and June Chung (Batman/Superman).
