The mystery deepens in a first look at “Something Is Killing the Children” #3 from BOOM! Studios

There’s hardly a greater tragedy than the disappearance and death of a child, let alone a whole town’s entire population of young ones. More than the monster at the center of these acts, that is what makes the concept behind Something Is Killing the Children so terrifying.

As for series protagonist Erica Slaughter, it probably doesn’t feel great knowing that you’re trying to help, but instead the townsfolk have turned their anger and suspicions on you. That’s where the third issue of James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera’s finds her, and BOOM! have provided a first look for us. Check it out below.

Your First Look at SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #3

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 24, 2019) –  BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #3, the latest issue of the highly acclaimed original horror 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 appearance of Erica Slaughter, the mysterious figure who rides into town claiming she can stop the brutal attacks turning their lives upside down.

Things in Archer's Peak are only growing worse. Erica Slaughter is on the hunt but the children are still dying. Angry and afraid, the inhabitants turn their suspicions on the stranger in their midst, the woman who arrived just as the killings began. Will Erica be able to save the town or will the very people she is trying to protect turn on her?

Something Is Killing the Children #3 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on November 20.
