Alyssa Milano Plugs her Comic Book "Hacktivist"
She's best known for her work on screen, but Alyssa Milano recently delved into the comic book world with "Hacktivist."
On Friday (January 24), the "Who's the Boss?" star headed to Collector's Paradise in Pasadena, California to greet fans and sign copies of the issue.
In the story, the young founders of the world’s most innovative social media company moonlight secretly as one of the most notorious black-hat hacker teams on the planet. When the U.S. government discovers their operation, they must face the real world beyond the code and choose between loyalty and what they believe to be is right.
Speaking about the project to LAist, Alyssa explains, "I became obsessed with the role social media was playing in social issues throughout the world and how it was being used as a tool to get people motivated and basically organize for these protests all over the world. I then became obsessed with Anonymous and what they were doing and how hacking seemed to be its own type of warfare—sort of the freedom movement of the computer world where they were really trying to do what they could possibly do to make the world a better place in their view."
