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

'Independence Day Resurgence' First Trailer Offers Familiar Faces and Annihilation


Roland Emmerich's one substantial hit film from 1996, Independence Day has fostered a sequel 20 years later in Independence Day Resurgence. The first trailer debuted during Fox's NFL coverage and features all the alien-induced destruction of the original times ten. However, the movie that helped launch Will Smith's movie career won't see the star back this time.



However, plenty of faces from the original have returned along with some new ones in this huge aliens-attack disaster extravaganza. Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Judd Hirsch, Sela Ward, and Charlotte Gainsbourgwill star. Bill Pulman, who contributed one of film's great pep talks as President Thomas J. Whitmore in the original, returns bearded up. 

If the plot matters, it basically has the aliens returning to battle earth with a huge onslaught, bigger and badder than before. Despite earth nations collaborating to use the alien technology they acquired before to form a massive defense system it may not be enough to fight them off this time. 

'Independence Day Resurgence' arrives in theaters on June 24, 2016.
