In a sleepy town in the heart of America, the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing and start dying in horrific ways. The local police are mystified by the brutal murders and are frantic to catch the killer. But they refuse to believe reports of impossible creatures that lurk in the shadows snatching children and tearing them to pieces, especially since the only people who claim to have seen these so-called monsters are other children.

The 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. Enter Erica Slaughter, a mysterious stranger who rides into town and promises to solve their “monster” problem. As a monster killer its what she does, actually its all she does. But can the townspeople trust this dangerous outsider with their children’s lives? And more importantly, can the children trust this strange adult with their secrets? 

GLAAD Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (Batman: Detective Comics) pulls readers into an abyss filled with their worst fears in this new limited series. Bringing these tragedies to life in striking detail is artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) whose images will no doubt haunt your nightmares.
