The hit paranormal action series will be collected into trade paperback

Bestselling creators Michael Avon Oeming (Powers, THE MICE TEMPLAR) and Taki Soma (United States of Murder, Inc.; Rapture) team up to co-write an all new fantasy adventure from Shadowline/Image Comics in SINERGY, which collects the first five issues of the hot Shadowline Comics series.

With Oeming as the lead story artist on the series and Soma providing additional story art, SINERGY is a vibrantly illustrated graphic novel that begins with the day Jess loses her virginity—and finds insight into another world right beside our own. Now Jess’s dormant abilities have been awakened, and she can see the interdimensional monsters living among us, feeding on our sins. Her father is a “seer” like her, and together they will save the world, one monster at a time… while trying to keep their family together.

SINERGY hits comic book store shelves on April 8 and bookstore shelves on April 21.

Praise for SINERGY:

“Mix Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a dash of Sex Criminals and you pretty much have Sinergy. This new horror series from Michael Avon Oeming and Taki Soma distinguishes itself by emphasizing comedy and teenage drama over scares… Oeming’s angular, shadowy art style is a good match for the quirky tone of the book.” —IGN

“Oeming's artwork is the real standout, as does Soma's backup strip.” —Horror Talk

“It's nice to see Oeming do something a little lighter in tone than his magnificent and recently concluded The Victories epic saga. This series feels light but dark enough in tone to be successfully horrific. Demon slaying can always be gloriously disgusting. Paring that with a forced partnership of daughter and father and I've no doubt this will a great series to follow for as long as there be demons to destroy.” —Bloody Disgusting

“Its premise is solid, the characters flawed but interesting, and the artwork suits the story. If you're looking for a good start to an adventure where a young woman learns monster-hunting with her dad (and really, who wouldn't?), you'd do well to check out Sinergy” —Kabooooom Comics
