THE DEADLY POWER OF IDEAS: JAMES TYNION IV AND ERYK DONOVAN GO IN-DEPTH ON ‘MEMETIC’
By Patrick A. Reed
Later this month, BOOM! Studios will release the first issue of Memetic, an oversized-format, three-part limited series by the team of James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, The Woods) and Eryk Donovan (The House In The Wall) with colorist Adam Guzowski that puts a distinctly modern spin on classic apocalyptic fiction formulas. The title is an adjective referring to memes — self-replicating ideas or entities that start with an individual before spreading to more people and across various media.
The story of Memetic is kicked into motion by the unleashing of the kind of adorable animal image many of us have seen and shared. In this case, it’s “Good Times Sloth,” and it becomes the most viral piece of internet content in history. Unfortunately, Good Times Sloth turns out to be weaponized meme that leads straight to the end of the human world as we know it.
It’s a fascinating and unique concept, and to get a bit more insight, we spoke to Tynion and Donovan about the project’s inception from initial idea to finished product.
