If you're not familiar with the story, please read the Fisheye Placebo: Intro first.

Frey is in cyberspace stealing government documents! :D Near the end, the glitchy text says Zero Day, which is a type of computer exploit that has yet to be discovered or fixed by the masses. This allows Frey to go undetected by the antivirus programs because the pattern of his attack isn't in the antivirus data base yet.

The quote "Bodies upon the Gears" is from Mario Savio's speech during the Free Speech Movement in 1964 at UC Berkeley (which happens to be where I went for college.)

I call bullshit. 

(I'll ignore here the antivirus' algorithm, and focus on the "heuristic search".)

The name clearly does not match up with the program's behavior. "Heuristic search" suggest, that this particular searching algorithm is using a heuristic. In layman terms, it can be described as a way to optimize the original algorithm, so that it first "checks" the solutions that are more likely to be correct. Now let's see how the program behaves. It goes out in a circle, so we can't really talk about a "direction", that should be clearly visible if a heuristic was used. I'd say, that what actually happens, is some sort of simultaneous breadth-first search (the trees) nested inside another BFS (the blue circle). While the tree part was quite obvious, I initially thought the blue circle part was actually a brute force search, that looked for a matching folder and then performed BFS on it. However, if that was the case, I think instead of a circle, we would se folders checked one by one, so I'm going with BFS, where the center of the circle is the search tree's root. 

Disclaimer: English is not the language in which I have been thought those things, so I most likely horribly butchered the proper terminology. :P

The way you represent hacking and anti virus software as visual metaphors is really cool

"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

I love the strap of his mask "Bodies upon the gears." Mario Savio's words are brilliant and I love that reference and your art and this comic, my goodness. Thanks for making me smile, oh mannnn :D
