Pittsburgh's own, Ed Piskor, heretofore best know for his work with Harvey Pekar (Our Movie Year, Macedonia), has now busted out on his own with his new self-published series, Wizzywig. This first 116-page square-format volume, Phreak, is dedicated to the exploits of those precursors to computer hackers, the phone phreaks. As Robert Frost once wrote, "there is something that does not love a wall." In the modern world, the definitive walls erected to protect private property are computer systems, specifically the codes that run them, and as such make for an irresistible target for that "something." But before the internet was a gleam in its daddies' eyes, Ma Bell ruled the roost, and those dedicated to "getting over" the walls erected to keep them out of messing with the system spent their time figuring out how to outsmart and/or break into the telephone switching systems. Ed Piskor tells their tale by agreggating various phreak legends into a single mythical figure in this engaging book of old school comics.
