REVIEW: 'I Breathed a Body' #1 by Zac Thompson, Andy MacDonald, Triona Farrell, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou

  A science-fiction horror series about social media, big tech, and influencer culture. It's The Social Network meets Hellraiser. When the world's biggest influencer posts something irredeemably horrific online, the world changes in an instant. Now it's up to his social media manager, Anne Stewart, to fan the flames of outrage and create a sensationalist campaign that rewrites the rules of "banned content." Thus begins a carnival of lust, revulsion, desire, and disgust - all for viral videos. Written by Zac Thompson (LONELY RECEIVER, UNDONE BY BLOOD, X-Men) and illustrated by Andy MacDonald (Multiple Man, Rogue Planet), I BREATHED A BODY is a horror series about the voyeurism of violence and the Big Tech companies who engineer patterns of fear in society.   I BREATHED A BODY #1 Writer: Zac Thompson Artist: Andy MacDonald Colorist: Triona Farrell Letterer: Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou Regular Cover Artist: Andy MacDonald w/ Triona Farrell Publisher: Aftershock Comics Rele

'Legends of Tomorrow' Will Meet Jonah Hex in the Old West


If you were a fan of the animated series Justice League Unlimited like I was, you appreciated the scope of heroes that would appear on any given episode besides the usual Justice Leaguers. You were as likely to see the Flash as you were Red Tornado, Vigilante, or Shining Knight. It truly captured the DC universe as it was intended - a plethora of heroes for a wide, wide, wide world. 'Legends of Tomorrow' is embracing a similar approach as they encounter other DC Comics heroes during their time travels. 

One such hero, or antihero, is Jonah Hex who the team will meet during a visit to the Old West. 
 “Ever since we decided that ‘Legends’ would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,” says executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply MUST include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
 Hex is a surly bounty hunter with a famously scarred face that is molded in part by Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns. Created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga in 1972, Hex has been a staple in DC westerns ever since. He did have a stint in space when he was transported into the future during a separate comic books series. There was also a forgetable live-action film in 2010 that starred Josh Brolin but is better left forgotten. 

No word on casting yet but the character is expected to appear in episode 11 with a chance at becoming a recurring role. This opens the door for the series to include any number of other heroes throughout DC's timeline. If they should travel into the future like they have in the comics and in animation there's the possibility of introducing the Legion of Super-Heroes for example or fan-favorite Booster Gold. 

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” starring Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darvill, Ciara Renée, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell and Falk Hentschel, premieres Thursday, January 21 on The CW.



Beginning January 21 on The CW, these outcasts have one chance to become DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
