“What turned young Erica into the monster hunter she is today? Discover Erica Slaughter’s true origin as she is further initiated into the House of Slaughter. “
This arc explaining what young Erica had to endure as she became a member of the House of Slaughter is heartbreaking on so many levels. Thinking of a child enduring all of this and not having a moment to breathe and grieve is crushing. But Erica is strong, and we know how she turns out in the end.
The art is as stunning and haunting as always. I love the depiction of young Erica. The monsters. The designs. Everything is beautiful. The colors are gorgeous. The lettering is perfect.
