Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Allison is drowning under the weight of her manipulative stage magician father. When he brings home the family's first computer, she escapes into a thrilling new world where she meetings Samir, a like-minded new online friend who has just agreed to run away from home with her. After moving to a new town and leaving all of his friends behind, Richard receives a mysterious note in his locker with instructions on how to connect to 'Evol BBS,' a dial-in bulletin board system, and meets a fierce punk named Tina who comes into his life and shakes his entire worldview loose. Unlikely alliances, first love, and minor crime sprees abound in this . . . graphic novel debut about making connections while your world is falling apart."--Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* In 1991, the burgeoning potential of the internet felt dark and mysterious to many. But to a few teens who knew where to look, it held the promise of desperately needed freedom. For Allison, the daughter of an abusive father, it's a connection to Samir, maybe her ally in escape and maybe her first love. For the bullied Richard, it's an alarm that calls a protector, a protector who introduces him to a disaffected community he's not sure he wants to join. Crimes are committed, helping hands offered, and somehow or other, someone walks into a McDonald's without pants on. Early internet communication through bulletin board systems will seem quaint (there's scant mention of a barely comprehensible thing called "email"), but it was already a powerful gateway to the human connection that the web, in its ideal form, can still be. And the human stories of desperation, of reaching out, and of discovering new worlds really shine here, both in characterizations and in sharp linework and careful compositions that elegantly highlight meaningful moments. Indeed, volume one ends on a perfectly satisfying note of coming together, even as it promises the story is only beginning, though a pervasive tint of cool blue and the portentous title suggest darker things might be on the way in volume two.
