Something is Killing the Children is Now an Ongoing Series

BOOM! Studios announced today that SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, the brand new horror series from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Woods, Justice League) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land), has been promoted to an ongoing series due to the overwhelming early support from retailers and fans in advance of its debut on September 4, 2019 at comics shops.

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?

“James, Werther, Miquel, and co. have created something truly special with SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, and we’re excited to bring readers even more of this strange yet thrilling horror series -- following Erica Slaughter as she faces off against monsters, and we begin to unravel the mystery surrounding her gruesome calling,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “With many more monsters to defeat and stories to tell, this is just the beginning for fans of horror comics.”

Print copies of SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 will be available at local comic book shops on September 4, 2019.
