Le scénariste James Tynion IV (The Woods, Ufology) semble se plaire chez Boom! Studios. A la fin de l’année, il lancera Cognetic, le deuxième chapitre de sa trilogie sur l’apocalypse débutée par Memetic avec son collègue Eryk Donovan.
Dans cette nouvelle mini-série en trois chapitres, mini-série résumée comme un « Die Hard psychique », les habitants de New York sont confrontés à un « esprit de ruche » qui a pris possession de l’Empire State Building.
Cognetic #1 sortira en octobre.
[quote]Well, our core figure is the assistant to the director of the FBI, and she is in New York City ready to help out. She’s sort of the secret brains behind the operation. This guy was a political appointment, he doesn’t know how people work, or how to really run the show at all, and he’s always relied on his assistant to sort of manipulate everything. So this is a character who is very comfortable with the idea of bending people to her will, and sort of shaping them to make for a better world. Which is fundamentally the same thing as this superorganism that is coming into the scenario.
Our main character Annie, she is this person we can all relate to. She isn’t doing this in terms of some mastermind, negative force. She really is trying to make things better for everyone, and make the world better for every individual being on that world. And, you know, she has ties to this larger being that become apparent in the first issue and beyond. But that’s really where the story begins. This figure coming into New York City, and Annie, the assistant to the director of the FBI realizing what this being is, and what it means for him to have suddenly reawakened and come back for humanity.[/quote]
