Something is Killing the Children and House of Slaughter creators James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera bring us the very first Something is Killing the Children one-shot special!
From the sidelines to the spotlight, Book of Slaughter follows the white mask Maxine Slaughter… but will her loyalties remain where they are, or will she show her true colors?
In addition to being a precursor to the upcoming chapters of both series, this special issue features a sizable guidebook that delves into the deep lore of the Order of St. George!
“Ever since the early issues of Something is Killing the Children, readers have reached out wanting to know more of the secrets of the mysterious Order of St. George,” said Tynion IV. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to deliver a story that not only sets the stage for future arcs of SIKTC and House of Slaughter, but reveals more about the organization at the heart of the series than we’ve ever revealed before.”
Book of Slaughter #1 uses a unique way to expand the Slaughterverse with amazing storytelling. Additionally, Dell’Edera is the epitome of SIKTC artwork and working alongside Tynion IV defines the what the universe they built. Erika Slaughter was the character to hook us on the original series, but these additional characters is giving us all a bigger picture and continue to push the boundaries.
This special one-shot was also release at the right time as the book has a holiday theme that allows it to fit into the Christmas season.
Book of Slaughter #1 will be available December 28, 2022 at your local comic shop.
