House of Slaughter tells the story of the teenage Aaron Slaughter, a character in Something Is Killing the Children, as he undergoes his training at the school known as the House of Slaughter and finds himself attracted to a mysterious boy. Tynion will team up with co-writer Tate Brombal (Barbalien), and Dell’Edera will share the art duties with Chris Shehan (The Autumnal) and colorist Miquel Muerto. The first issue of House of Slaughter will be published in October with two main covers, by Dell’Edera and Shehan, as well as variant covers by Alvaro Martinez Bueno (The Nice House on the Lake), Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman), and Mike Del Mundo (X-Men, Thor).
Something Is Killing the Children was nominated for a 2020 Eisner Award and has sold well enough that BOOM! has collected it in two formats, a trade paperback and a deluxe edition (see “‘Something Is Killing the Children’ to Get Deluxe Editions”). Netflix has also ordered a pilot based on the show (see “Netflix Orders ‘Something Is Killing the Children’”).
