Summary

WARNING: This meme will end civilization.

Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads to 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 shows the true terror of the internet. The world will end not with a bang, but with a single online image when creator and writer James Tynion IV (THE WOODS, Batman Eternal) teams up with newcomer Eryk Donovan (In the Dark Horror Anthology, House in the Wall) to bring horror to a whole new generation.

Author Biography

James Tynion IV got his start in the pages of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s acclaimed run on Batman at DC Comics in early 2012, where he co-wrote the backup stories for the best-selling Court of Owls and Death of the Family storylines. He has since written stories for Detective Comics, as well as writing the ongoing series Talon, and Red Hood and the Outlaws. He lives and writes in New York City, and is consistently amazed that people are actually letting him work on comic books professionally. He alternates between taking in the most grisly horror media he can get his hands on, and trying not to get choked up while listening to musical theater soundtracks. You can find him on Twitter @JamesTheFourth, or on his Tumblr. Michael Dialynas is an Athens, Greece based artist who has illustrated the worlds of AMALA'S BLADE, SPERA, SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN and currently THE WOODS for Boom! Studios.
