Reeling from tragedy, Ed has to orchestrate the most elaborate and far-reaching hack so far in order to right the wrongs he has brought to Sirine’s doorstep in Tunisia. However, if his message is to reach the entire world under the eagle eye of Agent Ori and the CIA, he will need the help of an old friend. In this gripping conclusion to Alyssa Milano’s four-part series, will Nate and Ed come together in order to save each other and change the world?

    The final twist, it is a bit nebulous, but I liked what it seemed to portend and I'll take that for now. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli May 6, 2014

    With recent developments around the world, glossed over bits like US Aid's so-called "Cuban Twitter" losing out to air time in favor of pap like Kim and Kanye, Hacktivist is one of the most socially relevant works out there at the moment. I'm sad to see the series go at just four issues, though the way it ended certainly leaves it open for further adventures in the future. I'm also happy to see that Archaia will have a swanky hardcover collection out in July (ideally in time for SDCC), with an introduction by Twitter's own Jack Dorsey, thus exposing the work to throngs of new fans. I'll certainly be upgrading to the hardcover for my bookshelves, and encourage the SDCC horde to do the same. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Yamini C May 1, 2014

    Overall, while Hacktivist #4 doesn'tquitematch the energy of its predecessors, it's a solid effort. Given that most of the major climaxes occurred in issues #2 and #3, and that the political themes explored within this series are heavy, difficult subjects to close the book on, finishing it was never going to be easy. Nonetheless, this is still a satisfying ending to a very well-executed and underrated mini-series, and it certainly feels true to the characters and themes presented within. Intelligently written and beautifully illustrated, Hacktivisthas been an engrossing, action-packed read from the first page, and I hope that it finds a second lease of life in trade.

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Apr 30, 2014

    This has been a great comic with plenty of character and plot, but the ending does not deliver on the same caliber as its predecessors. Read Full Review
