    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 27, 2020

    Something is Killing the Children started out strong and has only gotten stronger as the series has continued. I am deeply entrenched with this story and all of its many possibilities. This is a horror action epic full of engaging characters, terrifying monsters, and raw emotion. It's incredible. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 10, 2020

    Dell'edera does amazing work with the art. The story is character driven and the art reflects that through dynamic close ups and beautifully drawn panel progressions. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Jun 13, 2020

    Something is Killing the Children #7 is a tale of an awful bunch of events, with people who aren't heroic and who may even be awful themselves. It's tense and gripping, making you hope it works toward an ending because the deaths are so horrible you just want them to stop. It's visceral in every sense of the word, and awfully good at it too.

    Comic Watch - Ethan Coney Jun 11, 2020

    This is another stellar installment from the team again. The art is consistent and shines the most when it comes to action in my opinion. Tynion continues to keep me theorizing on the beasts and the Slaughterhouse and on top of that now I'm looking forward to seeing how Erica and Aaron's story play out in the next issue!

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jun 10, 2020

    Something Is Killing the Children #7 is a dark issue, but it's also one loaded with intrigue. We've been shown that there's more to this world than meets the eyes, all while setting the scene for something larger (and arguably more dangerous) down the line. It's going to be fascinating to see where Erica's story leads next, and who will be involved along the way. Will characters introduced in the first arc make an appearance? Or will new characters take a lead? Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Something is Killing the Children has struggled with pace at times, and while #7 does start off a little slow, things soon kick into gear, and the issue never looks back. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Rob Lake Jun 17, 2020

    This is another great installment from Tynion and the team. Whilst James takes a backseat in this issue we are given more of Erica's backstory amidst more mystery with Aaron and the illusive Slaughtethouse. With the creatures still at large I'm looking forward to how the story continues next issue. Read Full Review
