Oliver Davis reviews Hacktivity #1....

"Shawn Harris is a hacktivist, a software programmer / activist, who just pushed the boundaries too far. On trial for breaking into FBI systems, he's just been found guilty and sentenced to 30 years in maximum security prison. As his trial starts getting media attention, people find the facts of the case aren't so clear-cut. And other hackers decide to take matters into their own hands."

Hacktivity is a black and white, independent comic, self-published by its writer, Ovi Demetrian Jr., and its artist, the questionably surnamed (literally) James Whynot. It's a graphic novel made available online as a webcomic after each installment is completed. Good business plan.

As this first issue opens, our hero Shawn Harris is sentenced to 30 years in prison for hacking the FBI. He leaked countless documents to the public, detailing how the Government snoops on people's digital lives. Big, contemporary issues are in the background. »
