Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Intro by yuumei

Next >>> Ch0 Hello World


The first part of Fisheye Placebo is finally out! :D Thank you all for being so patient while I worked on the research and preparations. The next part will be coming out soon in a week! (If the image is not loading for whatever reason, try this )

Here are some of the inspirations for this intro…

Fisheye Placebo

:bulletblue:Original webcomic by Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)
:bulletblue:Genre: Cyberpunk, Cypherpunk, Fiction, Psychological


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?

Very surpassing opinions connected with art. Unique work" For an inspirational artist like `yuumei, we can definitely see how she makes epic milestones in her artworks all the time

Whoa. The way this is all put together is just so...fitting. The art is gorgeous, and I love how you set up the narration to be interspersed with the scenes. Seriously powerful stuff.

I went to China and stayed there for 6 weeks straight and I was told to never type down those words at all. I never did. But everyone else in my class lost their internet for awhile.

Maybe China'll ban this one if they accidentally see it.........doubt it'd happen today. Don't think the Chinese Government would do another massacre anyways, it'll probably get secret reporters

One of the most haunting things I've seen in a long time. Really makes you think, and the images are very powerful.
Very beautifully drawn, too.
