BOOM! Studios today announced the oversized special issue SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #25 from GLAAD Award-winning author James Tynion IV (The Nice House on the Lake, The Department of Truth), artist Werther Dell’Edera (Razorblades), colorist Miquel Muerto (House of Slaughter), and letterer AndWorld Design (We Only Find Them When They’re Dead). Celebrate 25 blood-stained issues with the milestone oversized special this July 2022.
With over two million copies of the series sold to date, the first arc of Erica’s mission in Tribulation reaches its shocking conclusion in this milestone anniversary issue that no Something is Killing the Children fan will want to miss! While Erica’s blades are occupied with an entity unlike anything she’s faced, she receives a phone call… with tragedy on the other end of the line. As things look dire, someone Erica once saved may have to find unexpected help to return the favor…
“We’re very proud of the world we’ve built, the stories we’ve told, and the people who have joined us to expand the universe of Erica Slaughter and the secret society of monster hunters who raised her,” said Tynion IV. “It’s a wonderful experience being able to tell the stories that we have, and we’ve gone so much further into this world than we ever imagined. But there’s even more story to tell and secrets to reveal, so get ready for the most unexpected monsters and thrills in issue #25 and onward.”
SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #25 features main wraparound cover art by series artist Werther Dell’Edera and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman), Peach Momoko (Power Rangers), J.G. Jones (Wanted, Final Crisis) and Jeehyung Lee (Venom).
“25! This is the longest run I’ve ever worked on,” said Dell’Edera. “After 25 issues, I can safely say I’m ready to do three times as many.”
