BOOM! Studios today announced BOOK OF SLAUGHTER, the very first one-shot special in the world of the Eisner Award-winning SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, from creators James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera, with colorist Miquel Muerto and letterer AndWorld Design, featuring a fan-favorite Slaughter whose secrets are yet to be revealed, available in December 2022.
From the sidelines to the spotlight, the White Mask Maxine Slaughter features in this new special issue that ties together threads from both Slaughterverse series… but will her loyalties remain where they have always been, or will she show her true colors?
In addition to being a precursor to upcoming chapters of both Something is Killing the Children and House of Slaughter, 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 features main cover art by series artist Dell’Edera and fan favorite illustrator Dan Mora (Klaus, Once & Future), as well as variant cover art by acclaimed artist Stephanie Hans (Die), and more.
“Erica’s world is bigger than anyone could ever have expected,” said Dell’Edera. “The deeper we go, the more places we find to explore!”
