Illustrated by Werther Dell'Edera, colored by Miguel Muerto
In volume one, Erica succeeded in killing one of the monsters in the woods that was eating children, but there are a lot of babies that were left behind, and they're hungry. Some of the surviving kids in town are now attracting the young monsters and putting them into a feeding frenzy. The town sets up a make-shift morgue at the high school and has families coming in to identify their loved ones, but one of the siblings waiting in line is attracting the monsters, and there are plenty of kids around with their families - families who already lost at least one kid. Another hunter arrive from the House of Slaughter headquarters. The Order is worried that the situation is getting too out of hand, and that Erica is not well equipped enough to handle everything.
This second volume gives us a little bit of insight into the House of Slaughter, and more information on Erica's background. The talking stuffed animals are still not explained, so there's definitely something strange going on with those when it comes to demon hunting. There is still a lot of violence and a lot of gore in this volume, and the illustrations continue to give off those creepy vibes of something just about to jump off the page at you. There isn't as much movement in this one about getting the monster problem under control, but the trade off is having all that wonderful, cryptic backstory that leaves more questions than it answers.
