This review does not contain spoilers.


In "Something Is Killing the Children" Volume 2, the chilling tale of Archer's Peak unfolds with even greater intensity and depth, drawing readers further into its dark and twisted world. Building upon the foundation laid in Volume 1, this installment delves deeper into the mysteries surrounding the town and its gruesome secrets.


As the story progresses, Erica Slaughter's enigmatic character takes center stage once again, her relentless pursuit of the monsters plaguing Archer's Peak driving the narrative forward with relentless tension. However, Volume 2 also introduces new layers of complexity to Erica's character, delving into her troubled past and the demons that haunt her every step.


One of the most compelling aspects of Volume 2 is the development of the relationship between Erica and James, the young boy thrust into the midst of the town's horrors. Their dynamic evolves as James grapples with the trauma of his experiences and struggles to find his place in Erica's dangerous world. The bond that forms between them serves as a poignant anchor amidst the chaos, adding emotional depth to the story and giving readers a glimpse into the humanity that still exists in the face of unimaginable terror.


The stakes are higher than ever in now, as Erica and James find themselves facing off against increasingly formidable foes and uncovering shocking truths about the sinister forces at work in Archer's Peak. With each new revelation, the tension mounts, drawing readers deeper into the heart of the mystery and leaving them on the edge of their seats.


I did find myself enjoying this book more so than the first, the continuation of the series delivers on all fronts. I did still find the pacing to be a bit too slow for the content, but then again, it's not a very long volume. I'm noticing a lot in newer graphic novels that the storylines are taking longer to unveil. I'm have no problem with slow-burn stories as long as the payoff at the end is worth it.
