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 heís not. Maybe thereís something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.

Maybe itís a girlfriend.

So itís not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? Thatís 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 [link] :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 started to mentally freak out because I was on reddit and came across the random subreddit and clicked on your post. I was thinking "this reminds me of that webcomic that I'm looking forward to... It kind of looks like fisheye placebo." Then I saw this picture and was like "oh... I understand now..." XD I enjoy your artstyle keep it up!
