“Erica Slaughter isn’t the only member of the House of Slaughter to have made sacrifices in order to become the monster hunter she is today. As a teenager, her handler and rival Aaron finds himself with a new roommate, the mysterious “transfer student” Jace Boucher. To initiate his training, Jace must prove his loyalty to the House of Slaughter through a binding ritual… a ritual that few survive.”
If you loved issue one, you’re in for a treat. House of Slaughter issue two is just as great, if not better, than the first issue, and really packs an emotional spectrum into a single issue without making it messy. Endearing, exciting, and even scary – you’re in for a bit of everything.
The artists at work on House of Slaughter are all absolutely nailing it. It’s vital in this story that the art works, and it brings so much life into the book. The colors are stunning. The lettering is perfect.
