James Tynion IV & Werther Dell’Edera's SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN is Now An Ongoing Series

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 19, 2019) – 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?
