Something is Killing the Children Vol. 1 (Paperback)
A little bit like Stephen King's It, if there were a lot more Pennywises and also an underground society hunting and killing the Pennywises. Monsters that grow stronger by being feared and by killing, adults that can't see them because they don't believe in them. A very compelling reluctant heroine that is good at slicing the monsters up real nice. Great dialogue and atmosphere that makes for characters you're going to really like. Great worldbuilding. GREAT ART. And spoooooky. Read pls.— From Zane
IT’S THE MONSTERS WHO SHOULD BE AFRAID.
When the children of Archer's Peak—a sleepy town in the heart of America—begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories—impossible details of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows. Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to be the only one who sees what they can see.
Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it must be done.
GLAAD Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (The Woods, Batman: Detective Comics) teams with artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) for an all-new story about staring into the abyss.
