Yet another hit comic book series is reportedly getting a new adaptation. According to insider Daniel Richtman, a television adaptation of Something Is Killing the Children is in development.
Created by James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera in 2019, Something Is Killing the Children is published under Boom! Studios. The series synopsis reads as follows:
“When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories—impossible stories of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows. Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to see what they can see. Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it MUST be done.“
Originally announced as a five-issue limited series, it was soon promoted to an ongoing after support from fans. The series eventually went on to be nominated for Best New Series at the 2020 Eisner Awards. Something Is Killing the Children has since maintained its popularity amongst fans and retailers since its launch.
Richtman, who revealed the series was in development on his Patreon, did not provide any other details concerning the project. Hopefully, fans can expect an official announcement soon with confirmation of who will produce the series and more, but for now, they will have to stay tuned for any further updates.
