Memetic #1 (of 3)

Writer: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan

A Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads throughout multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme’s success comes from its effectiveness to the host. But history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. Memetic shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a “meme” in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything.

Memetic is truly an event comic—three oversized, 48-page issues detailing the end of the world over the course of three days, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much like his work on The Woods, James Tynion IV and fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan (The House in the Wall) will bring horror to a whole new generation and fans of J-horror films like Uzumaki and The Ring.
