Hey Ed,

i was looking through some of the pages of the first volume and have a quick question. Is the graphic novel spoused be based on kevin mitnick? I noticed some similarities..

Never mind: I read another thread on the first book where you stated it was a compilation of a few people.

I checked out your work and was excited to read a hacker comic. Now I just have goofy pictures of Bernie S. and Kevin as super heroes stuck in my head. :-)

Keep up the good work.

Looks like you can buy it now

Yeah, the book is finally available. These darn things take a long time to put together. Lots to research. I expect them at my door next week so that I can distribute them. I made sure to get your handle in this volume too, Famicoman.

Thanks a lot for supporting the project. I started doing the book without even considering an audience and I'm so stoked that you dudes are showing up, in a big way.

Who do you guys respect that I should get a copy to for a review?

Hi Tenorclefninja, this hacker comic is a pretty big project that is now half-finished. I have the first volume you can check out here:

http://www.edpiskor.com/wizzy.html

and the new one is finally available here:

http://www.edpiskor.com/wizzy2.html

each volume is pretty self contained but if you read them all you will get the full experience.

Might sound a little strange but Jason Scott. I'm sure he'll have tons to say.

Thanks for including my handle!

I just ordered my copy and can't wait.

I third the vote for Jason Scott. He is the only person I know of who claims to be a digital historian and actually puts the title to use.

Too late for him to send me a copy, I just bought my customary three. I promise to review this issue as I did the previous one.

I'm confused why people who have bought the book would want me to review it, unless you hope that I will spread the word.

You're knowledgeable in both comicbook-dom and hacker lore. And you write in proper English. So who better? :D

Give me a heads up when you get your copies. I'm very curious about your thoughts after you read too.

I think this one was just as good if not better than the first one. I particularly liked the part where Kevin and Winston se'd themselves into the telco. Also, got the allusion to The BBS Documentary and I think there were a few throwbacks to The Hacker Crackdown. Its good to see the amount of homework you have done in creating this. Its pretty cool seeing someone take on such a task and having it turn out really well.

The post/business card in the front also has a pretty kickass guy in a convertible.

Just got my copy in today.

I think it's pretty accurate at showing how simple SEing is with a little knowledge and confidence. I found it funny when he tapped his tappers and got the heads up on their intentions. I can relate to when he got greedy for knowledge, though I got a slap on the wrist instead of troubles he found.

{* note to you juveniles, when you're in the court room be humble, look scared. Don't look your attackers, er, accusers, er lead detective in the eyes. They hate that shit. -just trust me on that}

When he got into the Telco that was pretty good. BoingThump's has gotten an ego now, he's not meek anymore. He's headed for trouble. I have no idea where he's going, but I want to see what happens when he gets there. Will he score a laptop? will he start canning? I don't know.. but really want to find out what happens in volume 3.

I worked all day today, and will re read it when I'm not so tired... but I had to read it tonight.. I just had to.

Ed, Thanks for the shout out... I am humbled.
