Planned to debut digitally from Archaia, with a graphic novel to follow next summer, the plans for actress/producer Alyssa Milano‘s comic Hacktivist appear to have changed, after a preview was given away at San Diego Comic Con.
Instead, it is coming out as a monthly series from Archaia Black Label/Boom! Studios. Written by Milano, Collin Kelly and Freakshow‘s Jackson Lanzing, with art from Marcus To and Ian Herring, Here’s the solicited pitch:
WHY WE LOVE IT: From the creative mind of Alyssa Milano, with artist Marcus To (Huntress, Red Robin), and writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, Hacktivist is a fastpaced cyberthriller about friendship and freedom in a time war.
WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: Fantastic characters and stunning action set pieces, beautifully illustrated by Marcus To (Cyborg 009, Red Robin) and Eisnernominated colorist Ian Herring (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand).
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Ed Hiccox and Nate Graft are young, brilliant, and the cofounders of YourLife, a social networking company that has changed the way the world stays connected. In secret, these best friends are also “sve_Urs3lf,” the largest, whitehat hacking group on the planet, exposing information and sparking revolutions across the globe.
