Following the initial publication of Psy-Comm, Henderson and Salvaggio re-teamed for the steampunk-themed work Clockwerx (available internationally from Humanoids Publishing), as well as the ongoing Castle Dracula Podcast. Henderson is a writer of both novels and comic series, and the third book of his Alex Van Helsing young-adult novel series was released in July 2012 by HarperCollins. A former manga columnist for the Comic Book Resources site, Salvaggio recently had his first prose short story published in the third book of the Fables for Japan anthology. He is also the bassist and vocalist for the band Deserts of Mars. Visit for more about Psy-Comm and its creators’ other projects.

The cold dead of night is a dangerous time to be near Shinyo Academy. Girls have begun to mysteriously disappear without a trace, and the school is alive with rumors. Some say the girls are just runaways, but with each new disappearance, a lingering fear grows ever stronger – fear that a shinigami... the very spirit of death... is prowling through the streets of the city. They say you never see it coming... a lone whistle splits the dark silence, and it suddenly appears behind you to steal your soul...
However, Nagi Kirima has never feared the darkness. She's determined to uncover the truth, but there aren't many clues to follow. A mysterious new drug that's appeared on the streets... A homeless man who's more than he seems... A girl still haunted by a serial killer who died five years ago... Nagi must take every fragment and piece together the entire story, before more students end up missing... or dead.
