Discover the Terrible Secrets That Lie at the Heart of the Critically
Acclaimed Horror Series in September 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 13, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #20, the next issue in the Eisner Award-nominated horror series from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Woods, Batman), artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land), colorist Miquel Muerto (Bury the Lede), and letterer AndWorld Design (We Only Find Them When They’re Dead), about Erica’s early experiences with the House of Slaughter and the start of her monster-hunting career… before the horrifying events that brought her to Archer’s Peak, available in September 2021.
Can Erica withstand the final stages of the mysterious Order of St. George initiation? Erica finally faces her official initiation into the Order of St. George, a torturous process that pits a child against an unrestrained monster… and bonds them to it for the rest of their life. Does Erica have what it takes to earn the Mark of St. George, embody the oath of secrecy each member of the House of Slaughter makes, and take her rightful place among the Order?
SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #20 features main cover art by series artist Werther Dell’Edera and variant cover art by fan favorite artists Evyn Fong (Magic the Gathering) and Valerio Schiti (X-Men).
