House of Slaughter #16 (BOOM! Studios)

BOOM! Studios have revealed a first look at House of Slaughter #16. Set in the world of the Eisner Award-winning phenomenal hit series Something is Killing the Children, from the minds of award-winning writer James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth, The Nice House on the Lake) and co-creator Werther Dell’Edera (Razorblades), written by Sam Johns (The Joker, The Backstagers), illustrated by highly acclaimed artist Letizia Cadonici (The Neighbors), colored by Francesco Segala, and lettered by AndWorld Design, the new story arc of House of Slaughter spotlighting the White Masks. Available in August 2023.

There is nothing the ruthless White Masks won’t do to eliminate a nest of monsters. Nothing is apparently unthinkable or off-limits, as a special and infamous member of their ranks is dispatched to finish the job in Erie, Pennsylvania. Bait, a fan-favorite White Mask (a young boy with amputated arms and a tendency to survive suicidal odds), is dispatched with a mission more malicious than imaginable at hand. Something (or someone) else is killing the children now, and however unexpected… the children will find the one that hunts them viciously familiar…

Issue #16 features main covers by Javier Rodriguez (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and co-creator Werther Dell’Edera with Miquel Muerto, as well as variant cover art by acclaimed artist Raúl Allén (Shock Shop), Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Tim Drake: Robin), and Peach Momoko (Wynd).  Here’s a first look at the cover gallery:
