Will Purple survive beta-testing the Information Upgrade (and what might she wake up by doing it?)? Don't miss the conclusion to the Spiders story!
»Mattias Elftorp’s Piracy is Liberation is unique in swedish comics. It follows a tradition rarely
seen in this country where autobiography, humour and absurdism dominates the scene. I can think of no
other swedish comics creator who draws from cyberpunk and american comics without resorting to irony and
pastische but instead utilizies the possibilities of the genre. The anarchic politics and philosophy
contained within the explosive and unpolished art creates a forceful and captivating whole, a saga of
resistance and awareness – of information and control, unparalleled in this country.«
