EXPLORE THE VOYEURISM OF VIOLENCE IN I BREATHED A BODY

AfterShock Comics has announced I Breathed a Body, a new series from writer Zac Thompson, artist Andy MacDonald, colorist Triona Farrell, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. The comic is a horror series about the voyeurism of violence and the Big Tech companies who engineer platforms of fear in society. Basically, it's one of the most relevant comics you could ask for.

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. 

“You can’t talk about the voyeurism of violence without talking about Clive Barker. I wanted to take everything I love about The Hellbound Heart and push it into the modern era with a distinct “alt-future” lens.” says writer Zac Thompson “So I’m also channeling the work of Alex Garland taking inspiration from his recent show Devs. But also leaning into some of my recent obsessions in the world of weird fiction like Jeff VanderMeer, Yoko Ogawa, and Thomas Ligotti to build a strange, horrific, and surreal world. There’s also plenty of David Cronenberg influence, and a little of Michael Haneke’s Funny Games at play.”
