Twenty years ago, a comet fell to earth. Since that night, Matthew has been haunted - haunted by a spirit that gives him incredible psychic abilities. But these abilities come with a price...and payment is due.
Every time Matthew uses his gifts, he draws closer to death, and other psychics - all of whom gained their powers on the night the comet fell - are dying in the most horrible of ways. To save himself, Matthew gathers a group of psychics to solve the mystery of their powers before it's too late.

    There are a lot of directions this book can go just from the first issue and all of it looks pretty damn intriguing. Bunn has put together another solid concept here to explore and I'm curious to see where he'll go with it and what we learn about these others that are like our lead. Torres is an ideal artist for this in being able to bring this concept to life and give us creative and engaging character designs for our regular people but also come up with what feels like something new and unique when it comes to the other things. I'm excited to see where this goes considering how very strong it's opened here. Read Full Review

    This book is dark, man. Cullen Bunn and Mark Torres team up to kick you good and hard, right in the gut. It's a whole twisted ball of heavy, ominous, and bloody. That's about where it leaves off. Read Full Review

    While Cullen Bunn could have done a better job at world building, its still another solid horror comic with a great idea, creepy design, and great characters. Read Full Review

    There's quite a bit of good to Phantom on the Scan. I'd be curious to check it out in trade. As it stands though, there is not enough here for the issue to wholly work on its own. Read Full Review

    Art and colours are on point. And the plot is interesting, supernatural horror with something else, we don't know yet.
