The convention debut of Archaia’s HACKTIVIST collected hardcover features an exclusive San Diego Comic-Con tip-in bookplate signed by the creator of the title, actress Alyssa Milano. This is a story about friendship and freedom in a time of war, stunningly illustrated by fan-favorite artist Marcus To (CYBORG 009, New Warriors, Red Robin) and Eisner Award-nominated colorist Ian Herring (JIM HENSON’S TALE OF SAND, CYBORG 009, Ms. Marvel). Ed Hiccox and Nate Graft are the young, brilliant co-founders of YourLife, a social networking company that has changed the way the world connects with each other. But they are also “sve_Urs3lf,” the largest black-hat hacking group on the planet. When their operation is discovered by the U.S. Government, and their company is taken over by military contracts and the CIA, Ed and Nate must face the real world beyond the code and choose between friendship and what they believe to be right.
