What’s to Love: Memetic is truly an event comic, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much like his work on The Woods, writer James Tynion IV—with the help of fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan (The House in the Wall)—brings horror to a whole new generation of fans of J-horror films like Uzumaki and The Ring. Plus, Memetic was nominated for the 2015 GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic!
What It Is: A meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then virally 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. Collects the complete three-issue miniseries.
