BOOM! Studios Announces ‘House Of Slaughter’ For Fall 2021
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has announced House of Slaughter, a brand new ongoing original series in the world of Something Is Killing The Children, written by co-creator James Tynion IV and co-writer Tate Brombal, and illustrated by co-creator Werther Dell‘Edera and artist Chris Shehan, colorist Miquel Muerto, and letterer AndWorld Design.
Discover the inner workings of the mysterious House of Slaughter in this new horror series exploring the secret history of the Order that forged Erica Slaughter into the monster hunter she is today, available in October 2021.
‘You know Aaron Slaughter as Erica’s handler and rival. But before he donned the black mask, Aaron was a teenager training within the House of Slaughter. Surviving within the school is tough enough, but it gets even more complicated when Aaron falls for a mysterious boy destined to be his competition. . .’
“Ever since our first glimpse of the House of Slaughter in Something is Killing the Children #5, I knew that there was an entire world of monsters and monster hunters outside of Erica Slaughter’s story. And once the book grew into the juggernaut of a series it’s become, thanks to all of our incredible fans, I knew I wanted to start telling those stories,” said Tynion IV. “I’m so honored to have the incredible Tate Brombal and the phenomenal Chis Shehan joining us to tell this exciting new story introducing everyone to the hunters Erica grew up alongside, and the other Houses within the Order of St. George, while Werther and I start plotting out Erica’s next adventure!”
“It’s been an incredible experience illustrating and building the world of Something is Killing the Children with James, and I can’t wait for fans to see what terrifying new horrors await in this new series—but readers, beware! There’s a very strong chance that things only get more terrifying, the deeper you go . . . into the House of Slaughter.” said Dell’Edera.
House of Slaughter #1 features main cover art by series artists Dell’Edera and Shehan, as well as variant cover art by Alvaro Martinez Bueno, Jenny Frison, and Mike Del Mundo.
