This Book Really is Something Special.

Something Is Killing the Children hits hard and was very well received by both critics and fans. The series has been nominated for ten major industry awards (winning seven). In 2020 the series was nominated for the Eisner, Harvey, and Ringo awards. The following year, James Tynion IV would win both the Eisner and Ringo awards for “Best Writer” for his body of work in 2021. In 2022, the series won the Eisner for “Best Continuing Series”, the Ringo for “Best Series”, the Ringo for “Best Single Issue”, and Tynion won both the Eisner and Ringo for again for “Best Writer”. 

I tend to shy away from horror comics but a friend introduced me to this book and I absolutely loved it. A brief summation is “a mash-up of Buffy meets Stranger Things”. The art, story, characters, and feel are all superb. I found I tend to really enjoy Tynion’s non-superhero based stories (The Department of Truth and The Nice House on the Lake). I didn’t care much for his Batman run. However, I can not praise this book enough.

One of the most impressive projects in years:

In Button Pusher, cartoonist Tyler Page uses his own childhood experiences to explore what it means to grow up with ADHD. From diagnosis to treatment and beyond, Tyler’s story is raw and enlightening, inviting you to see the world from a new perspective.
