    Something is Killing the Children #16 is the story I didn't know I wanted, but now that I have it, I never want to let it go. Generally, prequels are pretty lame. We know how the lead character ends up. We know there is no real danger to her. However, we know that there is a LOT of mental damage done to Erica from the moment this story starts and when we meet her in issue 1. It is like, I don't want to know, but I have to know. Can it be next month now? Read Full Review
