I often find that I don't enjoy Top Shelf books as much as I would like to, so I'm pleased to find this book is very enjoyable. It's a fictionalised story of one of the early hackers, who mostly scammed large telecom companies.

The book wasn't perfect. The story is told in tiny little chapters, which didn't really work for me. Perhaps because of that, it skates over much of the detail of the hacks, which is a little unsatisfactory. I think a little more explanation of the details, and a little more delving into the psyche of the hacker, would have made the book a lot more compelling.

I also had no idea of how much of the story was true, or even vaguely realistic. Once I had finished the book, I found that it was based on the lives of 2 or 3 real-life hackers. I think it would have been better to put in a bit of this background, maybe just as an appendix at the back. Finally, the ending seemed a little overly dramatic too. Overall, though, this is a good comic - interesting story, nicely told.

I loved the art, and I learned a lot about the beginnings of hip-hop, but the whole book just completely lacked a narrative structure. People were introduced without any story arc, no pauses in the story to explain who they were, or that we were switching to a new person. Things happened in the panels without any explanation as to what was going on, and then that narrative thread was just dropped. It just became exhausting after a while trying to figure it all out.

The third volume of Piskor's simplified and consolidated retelling of the X-Men's convoluted and lengthy history presented in a decidedly "indie" style is, yet again, far more fresh and entertaining than it has any right to be.
