Three years after an epidemic caused by the “Phantom virus,” an unknown catalyst that causes victims to turn into zombie-like beings with yellowing flesh, a young teen named Griffon lives on his own in Rochester, New York, fighting for survival. Things change when he meets with a group sheltered up outside of town. Just when he thinks he finally has a place to stop and rest, a new revelation strikes.
The group learns of a cure being created in DC at the Pentagon. Determined to find a safe haven and an end to the pandemic, Griffon and the others begin a long travel south. Along the way, Griffon and the others meet new faces. They also discover the world around them is changing to become incredibly bizarre. And dangerous.
Set in a postapocalyptic 2019, the story of Phantoms follows the views of multiple characters as they deal with a now broken world and feeling that something bigger is happening around them, and its close. With new dangers and peculiar creatures around each corner, the survivors will have to learn fast if they wanna stay alive.
