a new supernatural empath story


Sylas, a first responder in New York City, finds his life forever changed when he is gifted an ancient power to ease the suffering

of others, at the cost of carrying that pain himself.


As he learns more about his abilities and how to use them, he draws the attention of powerful forces who are locked in a centuries-old conflict of controlling the state of the human condition.


"The three-issue comic book combines the genres of fantasy and noir to create a world unlike anything readers have seen before."

– Screen Rant

"Extremely compelling, emotionally impactful, and well-paced with gorgeous art, SYPHON is a mind-bending action-filled trip."

– The Comic Source

"If you want to have your face melted, pick up SYPHON. It is one of the most surprising books I've read in years."

– Pop Culture & Comics

Sylas, an EMT with a troubled past, is granted the power to sense and siphon pain from others. He is now able to ease the suffering of people around him— but at a cost. The more Sylas uses this power, the more it curses him with carrying the miseries of those he's helped. Tormented by bearing the burdens of the world, Sylas accepts the help of mysterious drifter who shows him there is more than one side to this power. 

In this new fantasy series, Syphon blends noir with the supernatural and asks the question, "How much weight of the world can you carry?" 

Comic book documentarian PATRICK MEANEY (Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, The Image Revolution) teams up with artist JEFF EDWARDS (G.I. Joe) in a story by MOHSEN ASHRAF (Pantheon) that evokes the lore of Neil Gaiman's American Gods with the psychological thrills of M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable

"Meaney and Ashraf pack Syphon with a gripping showcase of the human experience and a unique supernatural aspect."

– Katie Liggera, Comic Critic

"SYPHON is a brilliantly crafted story."

– Geeks WorldWide (GWW)
