Fisheye Placebo: Cypherpunks by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Cypherpunks by yuumei

Fisheye Placebo

:bulletblue:Original webcomic by Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)
:bulletblue:Genre: Cyberpunk, Cypherpunk, Fiction, Psychological
:bulletblue:Estimated Release Date: hopefully before March 2013


Living under an authoritarian regime is not fun. Extensive censorship meant no Facebook, no Youtube, and no porn.

Fortunately for Vance, being a hacker makes scaling the Great Firewall a walk in the park. With the free web at his fingertips, Vance should be happy but he’s not. Maybe there’s something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.

Maybe it’s a girlfriend.

So it’s not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? That’s just taking fate into your own hands, or something along those lines, right?

Too bad fate had other plans in mind and Vance is dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate.

College is meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and maybe not quite failed hacks, Vance will slowly come to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.

Is this what democracy looks like?

Animated work progress is now on tumblr… :D

Btw, I noticed a lot of people on my fb and tumblr mistook a few of the posters so I'll just clarify them now. The one on the bottom left with Nyan cat and Like a Sir is the banner for hacker group LulzSec, not a random meme insert. The Nyoro~n behind Vance is the icon for Kayla, a lulzSec hacker. The hourglass logo on the top room corner is the Wikileaks logo, not my "Countdown" drawing. Basically, all the posters in this drawing is either related to hacktivists or protesters, if you think it looks like a random meme or something else, it's not in the context of this drawing. A lot of hackers like to use memes as their symbol so it can easily get confusing ^^;

i would suggest changing the tumblr link in your description to your current tumblr as that link now belongs to a blog with many inappropriate pictures.
here's the current link to this picture on your blog:…

Love the Ghost in the Shell references. "I thought what I'd do was I'd pretend to be one of those deaf-mutes"

"We Are Anonymous
We Do Not Forgive
We Do Not Forget
Expect Us"

Hey what if the real world we see is just a illusion and the drugs is the real world that we don't see, maybe thats why the government doesn't let us take we wont be able to see the real world but instead we all walk in a wold that is just a illusion and nobody is even noticing it. The governments thinks that the world is there own world, that they can control it the way they want it to be and the people of the world is not even noticing it. What ever happen to the freedom of the people, what ever happen with peace, kindness, WHAT HAS HAPPEN TO THIS WORLD THAT WE ARE LIVING ON. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS EARTH...what...happen...what ever..happen to this world to turn out this way...? Did all of it was just nothing to the government, did non of it meant NOTHING TO THEM...if there is no kindness in this world then all there! We think to much and feel to little... People has power within them but the government is just shutting it away, but you can make a different in this corrupting world...
