I Breathed A Body – And Topped Advance Reorders – 31st December 2020

I Breathed A Body #1 by Zac Thompson and Andy MacDonald from AfterShock Comics topped the advance reorders list this week. A science fiction horror series about social media, big tech, and influencer culture, they describe it as "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." And it looks like retailers are bumping their orders big time.
