Discover the First Ever One-Shot Special from the Acclaimed Bestselling
Horror Series in December 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 16, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today revealed Francis Manapul’s (Action Comics) variant cover of BOOK OF SLAUGHTER #1, the very first oversized one-shot special in the world of the Eisner Award-winning SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, from creators James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera, with colorist Miquel Muerto and letterer AndWorld Design, featuring a fan-favorite Slaughter whose secrets are yet to be revealed, available in December 2022.
From the sidelines to the spotlight, the White Mask Maxine Slaughter features in this new special issue that ties together threads from both Slaughterverse series… but will her loyalties remain where they have always been, or will she show her true colors?
In addition to being a precursor to upcoming chapters of both Something is Killing the Children and House of Slaughter, this special issue features a sizable guidebook that delves into the deep lore of the Order of St. George!
BOOK OF SLAUGHTER #1 features main cover art by fan favorite illustrator Dan Mora (Klaus, Once & Future), as well as variant cover art by series artist Dell’Edera, acclaimed artist Stephanie Hans (Die), and more.
