Ancient psychic beings battle for the fate of the world in this apocalyptic and philosophical tale.

Throughout history, humanity has joined together to build countless civilizations, to establish culture, and to embrace the fruits of their labors...But what if all that effort for a better world isn’t the right track? A powerful psychic being who, ages ago, once controlled one-third of the world's population returns to modern-day New York City, armed to redirect the destiny of mankind and build a better tomorrow. It’ll take the bravery of one young woman to combat this powerful foe and save mankind, but at a terrible cost.

Cognetic is a psychic action thriller, precariously positioned on the edge of outright apocalypse from the acclaimed duo, writer James Tynion IV (Memetic, The Woods) and artist Eryk Donovan (Memetic).
James Tynion IV is a comic book writer, best known for his work on the Batman franchise for DC Comics. James' comics career began with co-writing the back-up stories on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's character defining run on BATMAN, which would lead to his making his own name on a number of Bat-Centric series. This work would culminate in James serving as the showrunner of two consecutive weekly comic series, BATMAN ETERNAL and BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL. Recently, he has become the writer of the massive cross-over project, BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, bringing two of the most successful franchises together for the first time. The first issue was one of the best selling comic issues of 2015.

The Young Adult Science Fiction epic THE WOODS broke all records for original series at the company when it was released in 2014, and has recently been optioned for television by Universal Cable Productions. He has also penned the critical successes MEMETIC, COGNETIC and UFOLOGY for the publisher. James has also recently stepped into the shoes of one of the most iconic anti-heroes in the comics medium with the critically acclaimed relaunch of CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER with Ming Doyle and Riley Rossmo.

An alumni of Sarah Lawrence College, Tynion now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
