    Something is Killing the Children has truly never been better, and issue #32 will easily go down as one of my all time favorites of the series. Read Full Review

    There is a reason why Tynion won an Eisner for the work he is doing on this series. In this issue, he does an amazing job of creating tension and holding it throughout the issue while also bringing you feelings of sympathy for these characters. Read Full Review

    Fans of this series might be surprised at the lack of action but will appreciate the character work in this issue. With only a few issues left in the Tribulation story arc, the third act has certainly been the strongest so far. Read Full Review

    While this issue is purely dialogue-driven, the emotionally-charged conversations add plenty of depth to Cecilia and Erica's characters. I'd go as far as saying this issue is a subtle turning point for the series. Read Full Review

    Until now, even when an individual issue's story has disappointed, readers could rely on great illustrations. In this issue, they get neither. What could have been a pivotal moment in the story arc is now a throwaway issue – literally. Read Full Review

    Good to see a comic that does not rush blindly from one action sequence to the next.

    I finally read the previous 5 SIKTC issues this week and can finally start reviewing the series as part of my regular reviews! Part of the reason I’ve lapsed on keeping up is the Tribulation arc hasn’t been my favorite of the three stories to date and I was waiting for the next TPB to come out. I figured I’d give the arc another shot after seeing James Tynion IV at Flame Con this past weekend.

    Things picked up around issue #26 when Erica and Cutter crossed paths, but this arc is still suffering from drawn-out pacing that is weighing down what used to be an exciting weekly read. That’s not to say that Tynion isn’t writing some really good dialogue for characters or that there isn’t anything interesting happen, it’s more
