James Tynion IV :

« 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, » said Tynion. « 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.

Edwin Slaughter is one of the Scarlet Masks, the secret bookkeepers of the Order of St. George. He’s enamored with stories of ancient hunters, as well as those in his midst.

He only gets to write the stories and never live them himself though. That is, until what starts out as standard reconnaissance for the Order turns Edwin’s world upside down. There’s a legendary monster in America, one long thought extinct…

It’s taken the lives of countless children, bringing Edwin into the field for the first time… and into real danger.

Along with a new story arc comes a new creative team! Acclaimed writer Sam Johns of Punchline and The Joker fame joins James Tynion IV as co-writer, and up-and-coming artist Letizia Cadonici makes her highly-anticipated American comics debut, joined by series veteran Werther Dell’Edera as co-artist!
