Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter—well- they know him a little- anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives- nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods- overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It’s beautiful- it’s opulent- it’s private—so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice? With Something Is Killing The Children and The Department of Truth- James Tynion IV has changed the face of horror in modern comics — now get ready for his most ambitious story yet- alongside his Detective Comics partner Álvaro Martínez Bueno!
