Neat Indie Graphic Novel about Phone Phreaking/Hacking, etc.
« on: January 15, 2010, 09:35:14 AM »
Ed Piskor wrote in to tell us about a very cool project he's been working on.. A self-published LONG graphic novel called "WIZZYWIG", which is published in multiple volumes.  It's fiction, and follows the life story of a phone phreaker/hacker, but seems to be based somewhat on the life of Kevin Mitnick.

You can actually download several hundred pages of it to read in PDF format -- but if you like the stuff and want to support the author, be sure to purchase it.  I can't wait until more and more authors are creating and selling their own stuff.

VOLUME 3: WHEN WE LAST SAW KEVIN "BOINGTHUMP" PHENICLE, HE DECIDED, RATHER THAN GETTING ARRESTED FOR VIOLATING HIS PROBATION, HE WOULD VANISH. NOW HE IS ON A TURBULENT RUN FROM THE LAW USING HIS HACKING PROWESS AND INGENUITY ON AN EPIC ROLLERCOASTER RIDE OF EVENTS. KEVIN DUCKS THE AUTHORITIES AT EVERY TURN, ESTABLISHES FALSE IDENTITIES, RIGS RADIO STATION CALL-IN CONTESTS FOR FUN AND PROFIT, WIRETAPS SPOUSES, SETS UP PHONE SERVICE FOR PIMPS AND SACRIFICES HIS SANITY ALONG THE WAY RESULTING IN SILLY MISTAKES THAT PROVE DANGEROUS.
