Something is Killing the Children #19

By: James Tynion IV, Werther Dell
Released: Aug 25, 2021

Erica must play the Game of Nowhere, a secretive binding ritual of the Order of St. George, but not everyone wants her to succeed.

And it's much more than a game; it is an important, yet dangerous part of a hunter's initiation... and not all students survive the process.

Will Erica pass? And if so, at what cost?

The only good thing about is the fact we are closing to the end. And Emanuela Lupacchino art.

It was cringeworthy, so boring and predictable. Throwing this men are bad in every issue gets just that cringworthy. Doesnt matter if its a satyr, elf king, Thor or ofcourse Wonder Man.

https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-06.html What started as a normal 35k run peaked at 773 thanks to well sex, dropped to 27 on 774. July predictions are not yet complete. But WW according to presales not even yet registered https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-07.html Lets be realistic here. 775,6,7 will be even lower. Many people shitted on neo Gotham and Cyberpunk vibe of Tynion's Batman. But one thijg was certain. Dude made the sales almost double.

So go real Sensational and quit acting like you have some inside scoop, or know better. There are other Wonder Woman stories for you. Quoting sales and acting like you understand the industry is weak, and you’re clearly hurt by something else.
