This has been one of my favorite books over the last half of a year. I had zero expectations for it but now, every issue makes me excited about reading it.
This issue is no exception.
Something is Killing the Children is heading into its second story arc, focusing on the group of assassins that Erica came from as the story sets up the next step of what is going to happen. For laying the groundwork, this is a very solid issue. There is a ton of world building that should pay off nicely as the series continues.
The plot is expertly laid out and keeps the readers on the edges of their seats. The art is dark and foreboding and creates an excellent mood for the story that is being presented.
This is going to continue to be one of the books I look forward to the most. Congratulations to Boom! Studios for their success.
