But when the Sheriff's department turns their investigation to Erica Slaughter, the FBI is more interested in getting in the way. As the horrified townspeople watch Erica arm herself for a war they can't see, tensions rise to their breaking point in this penultimate issue.

    Something is Killing the Children is a strong comic, one of quite a few tremendous horror titles at the end of 2019. This issue is another great one and ends with probably the biggest cliffhanger of the series so far.  Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 11, 2019

    Dell'edera is more subtle with the art in this issue. This issue is all about the human story happening in the town so the art takes the time to illuminate the characters and their surroundings effectively to draw in the reader. I love the fact that Dell'edera keeps Erica's face mostly hidden while showing the rest of the characters clearly. It adds to her mystery and the drama and tension of the series. Read Full Review
