Something Is Killing the Children Vol. 1
Something Is Killing the Children Vol. 1 | James Tynion IV
When children begin to go missing in the town of Archer's Peak, all hope seems lost until a mysterious woman arrives to reveal that terrifying creatures are behind the chaos - and that she alone will destroy them, no matter the cost. 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. Collects Something is Killing the Children #1-5.

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

3.5-4 stars

Engaging monster hunter graphic novel series. So far so good. The art is really eye catching and the story is building. Interested to see where this goes.

#9 Something Is Killing the Children issues 1-5
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.

@TheAromaofBooks
This was my #DoubleSpin book for November.

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 12mo

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.

Finished Vol 1 the other day = 5 comics in the Volume ...They were more monster type books so they don't really fit the #TeamTheme

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.

Kenyazero Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one! I've been thinking about reading it for a bit. I don't love horror, but I usually try to check out stories with queer protagonists. I'll probably give volume 1 a read sometime. 1y
Bianca @Kenyazero Of course! I usually try to check out stories with queer protagonists as well, especially comics and fantasy. If you have access to Hoopla through your public library, you can borrow the individual issues that way. They currently have issues 1-9 on there. Then you don't have to invest in the entire first volume, unless you want to. 😁 1y
Kenyazero @Bianca That's my plan! It's been in my "likes" for a while bcause I use that list to track titles I am considering borrowing. 1y
Bianca @Kenyazero That's smart! 1y

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.)

#NCBD is the best day...even if it‘s a day late. Looking forward to reading everything but super excited to return to Strange Academy and then to dive into Something is Killing the Children which I‘ve heard great things about.

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?”
“Probably not.”
“Cool.”
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.

NotCool Or, now that I think about it, as if their true vision of the monstrous has cost them, in some sort of Odin-esque deal. 2y
