James Tynion IV and Eryk Donovan Reimagine the End of the World in Cognetic

In the lead up to San Diego Comic-Con, BOOM! Studios is making ten announcements. The first and second have already been released, and today sees the third.

The publisher has announced that James Tynion IV and Eryk Donovan, the creative team behind the award-nominated Memetic, will come together once again for a new apocalyptic tale in the three-issue over-sized event Cognetic. This fall, Tynion and Donovan explore the fundamental human desire for control and how absolute power can topple civilization.

In Cognetic, every human believes they are a self-reliant, self-determined individual, each set on their own course. They’ve built civilizations, they’ve built culture, they’ve built lives…but what if that isn’t the right track? What if there is a singular mind ready to take back control and finally right the destiny of mankind and build a better tomorrow?

Cognetic is the story of a powerful psychic being that once controlled one-third of the world’s population as a part of its hivemind, and his return to humanity in modern-day New York City. It’s a psychic action thriller, precariously positioned on the edge of outright apocalypse. It’s also the story of a young woman, the assistant to the director of the FBI, who might be the only one who can save humanity, but at a terrible, terrible cost.

Cognetic #1 (of 3) contains an oversized 48 pages of story and will arrive in comic shops this October.
