Black Mirror is a Netflix anthology series about the horrors of modern society. It casts a, well, a mirror on our addiction to tech. In other words, it’s our generation’s Twilight Zone. And the show is an inspiration to Brazilian pop artist Butcher Billy. He illustrated a series of Black Mirror comic covers, positing what the episodes would look like as a series of vintage pulp comic books. So turn on your implanted memory chip. Because it’s time to check out some Black Mirror comic covers.
“White Christmas” doesn’t quite spread holiday cheer as it does holiday technology-induced-dread-and-malaise. Snowed in their remote outpost, Jon Hamm and Rafe Spall swap stories: an augmented reality dating service resulting in death, an artificial consciousness brought to its brink, and a tragic melodrama involving infidelity. The twist ending ties everything together expertly.
