Top Shelf Productions just announced that Wizzywig graphic novel is available for pre-order from the latest edition of Diamond Previews and will be officially released in July 2012. Wizzywig is the first solo graphic novel created by Ed Piskor. This 6.5″ x 9″ black & white, hard cover graphic novel is 288 pages long and is priced at $19.95 (US).
Inspired by the incredible stories of real-life hackers, WIZZYWIG is the thrilling tale of a master manipulator — his journey from precocious child scammer to federally-wanted fugitive, and beyond. In a world transformed by social networks, data leaks, and digital uprisings, Ed Piskor”s debut graphic novel reminds us how much power can rest in the hands of an audacious kid with a keyboard.
They say What You See Is What You Get… but Kevin “Boingthump” Phenicle could always see more than most people. In the world of phone phreaks, hackers, and scammers, he”s a legend. His exploits are hotly debated: could he really get free long-distance calls by whistling into a pay phone? Did his video-game piracy scheme accidentally trigger the first computer virus? And did he really dodge the FBI by using their own wiretapping software against them? Is he even a real person? And if he”s ever caught, what would happen to a geek like him in federal prison?
