Matrix Comics: Bits and Pieces (No. 6 from Vol. 1, Series 1)

This news archive/comic is a supplement to the Animatrix short film, "Second Renaissance" part 1. It gives a little more insight into the B166ER trial and social reactions to it.

While it is interesting and entertaining to read, it doesn't give any additional insight into the Matrix itself, and it barely even adds to the story of "The Second Renaissance". So, I am not summarizing/interpreting this comic. You can read the original here.

Note the similarity of the robot's model number (B166ER) to the word "BIGGER" - this is a reference to Richard Wright's black protagonist, "Bigger" Thomas, who rises up against his masters only to be further brutalized in the end.
