Présentation de l'éditeur

  • 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?
  • Inspired by the incredible stories of real-life hackers, Wizzygig 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 and data leaks, Ed Piskor's debut graphic novel reminds us how much power can rest in the hands of an audacious kid with a keyboard.

Une BD sur le monde des hackers, ce n'est pas si courant. Et quelques pages où on voit passer Steve Jobs et son acolyte Wozniak. C'est bien dessiné, intéressant, voire éducatif, une sorte de mini saga de l'époque où les ordinateurs n'avaient que des lecteurs de disquettes… Ce livre est rare et peu connu : avis aux collectionneurs. En anglais, mais lecture abordable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I want more 14 janvier 2013
Par C. Brock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I loved seeing the various hacks and scams that Kevin (the protagonist) did during his days of freedom. I almost didn't care if there was a story involved. I want more hacks and scams. Mr. Piskor, if you read these reviews, can you please create an appendix graphic novel of various hacks and scams because your drawings and explanations made it both fun and comprehensible to read about them. I was absorbed in the first 2/3 of the book and then realized that indeed there was a higher story holding this book together, and it will not disappoint. What makes it even better is that this is not some vacuous novel of scams and brutality with no meaning involved. It might be too much to ask that Kevin be more like a populist Robin Hood fighting corporate greed, but what we have is a hero that defies a simple explanation. It is difficult to relate to Kevin, but that isn't the point. The shift from Kevin to our legal system seems to be the point. Thoroughly good book, and seemingly well researched.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An interesting comic somewhat based on true stories 3 juillet 2013
Par Stiles Finstock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you've read much about computer enthusiasts back when computing was rare, you'll recognize some of the tales told in this story. It's a fictionalized amalgam of different famous hacker stories, tied into a narrative. Wizzywig is the name of the hero of the story, a guy who can't stop finding ways to beat the systems placed in front of him. From scamming pizza to stealing phone calls to rigging radio contests, Wizzywig can't help himself and it sometimes gets him into trouble. The story is fun, if somewhat depressing sometimes. The artwork is clean and visually interesting.

The book cover is also cool, looking like an old Mac. It looks cool on your shelf. Recommended, especially for people with an interest in the computing of the 70s and 80s.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Why can't hackers stay out of trouble? 8 octobre 2012
Par Clayton Hollifield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is what you need to know about this book: I had intended to chip away at reading this graphic novel over a week or so, and instead tore through it in one sitting.

"Wizzywig" is a story about a child prodigy hacker, who keeps getting into more and more trouble. If you enjoyed movies like "WarGames or "Hackers," the subject matter is going to appeal to you. That's not to say that this is a "large" story - it's very much the story of the main character, and it's a compelling story. I liked the art, I liked the story, I can't wait to read Ed Piskor's next collected story.

Also, extra points for the packaging on this volume. The cover might look plain as a digital image, but the actual book looks like it was plucked out of my grade school computer lab.

Very nice novel which condenses a great deal of history and curiosities about the rise of the information age from an hacker's perspective.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great comics, but the quasi-fictional conceit is confusing 23 octobre 2012
Par Yakov Hadash - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
First, the downside in my view: This book combines the real life stories of several different hackers. If the reader are an expert in hacking history, you can see where certain specific people's stories are coming through in the text, but if, like me, you don't know those stories, this book will be slightly harder to approach. The story being told is fairly unbelievable so it loses a certain amount of value for being fictionalized. I would be curious to know what inspired Mr. Piskor to avoid doing a straightforward comics biography or series of non-fiction biographies. Interestingly, his next project, "Hip Hop Family Tree"*, is exactly that, and I will be keeping my eyes out for it.

Besides that one criticism that I have, this comic book is great comics -- which is to say that the art, pacing, layouts, "interludes" in alternative drawing styles, design, etc etc are all top notch.

If you like this book, you would probably enjoy checking out the works of Piskor's fellow Pittsburghers Brian Maruca and Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac and Street Angel). There's a similar sort of aesthetic coming out of their works.

*Hip Hop Family Tree can be read at the popular blog Boing Boing. It will also be released as a book sometime soonish by Fantagraphics.
