I think if I were to describe a near perfect first volume, it would be this one. Enough craziness, action, and story given to keep me engaged; but also, plenty of tidbits dropped to keep me wondering about future volumes. The title is the synopsis and it seems a fairly ‘simple‘ storyline, but they‘ve added so much more to keep it on the fun side of crazy.
Awesome graphic novel, if bloody. Combines a missing persons mystery with a monster feature. It also contains a badass heroine. I loved the illustrations. There are 3 more volumes.
Something is Killing the Children could have very well served as an alternate title for IT & volume 1 of the series has many of the same vibes as King's novel. I LOVED this gn about a Wisconsin town where monsters are all too real & only children can see them until a stranger arrives to help. I'm so happy I have vol. 2 already checked out from the library.
What a great introduction to this horror series. I‘m so happy I stumbled upon this graphic novel while browsing the comic bookstore. The artwork combines with the storyline draws you in and makes it so you have to keep reading to see what happens next. #Scarathlon2021 #TeamHendrix #Screamathon2021 #BFC2021 #Spookoweenreadathon #Wickedathon #BookSlinBingo +76 pts

The artwork is very cool. The story line is fantastic and elusive. It leaves a bit of mystery. I‘ll definitely be continuing on with this series.
4🌟 I really enjoyed this volume, and I am so happy that they decided to do an extended series. The art is fantastic and there are a bunch of elements that I'm still very curious about. Warning: This is a very gory comic, but I don't consider it distasteful. Just a definite horror comic.
This was my #DoubleSpin book for November.
This was a fun, spooky, quite straightforward graphic novel where (you guessed it) something is killing the children and a mysterious woman arrives to kill the monster. It wasn‘t breaking any boundaries really but I enjoyed it and liked the characters and art.

Excellent horror. It is dark--literally and figuratively--and bloody with an intriguing storyline. I'm not always crazy about the art style, but I'll stay for the story and characters (one of the main characters is queer and it isn't about him being queer!).
TW for harm to children.
I've been having trouble finding a book that keeps my attention, but I read volume one of Ms. Marvel (by G. Willow Wilson) last night so I'm continuing with comics. I really like James Tynion IV's work but haven't checked this out yet. (For some reason, Litsy doesn't have issue #1 in their database, and that's what I borrowed from Hoopla.)
I just loved this comic. Right from the start, this comic had me in suspense.
The story didn't reveal too much too quickly & had me in suspense the whole way through.
The artwork was fantastic & included some really great full page panels
I think this is my new favourite comic & it's probably the best comic of this genre that I've read since reading Locke & Key which is saying a lot. I can't wait to read more of this series
I recently got a Netgalley account and this was one of the first ARCs I received.
I really liked this graphic novel. Somehow, on my first read, the text bubbles were missing. The story worked without those, too, so the art is damn expressive. It was better with the full story though.
Horror, monsters only children can see, and a talking stuffed Octopus. I can see myself picking up this and the next book when it is released at my comic book store.
“You‘re James, right?”
“Are you going to hurt me?”
I‘m interested in how the gaze of all the characters we are meant empathize with in issue #1 is wholly or partially obscured. It‘s as if we‘re meant to empathize with them, but not too much.
