A downloadable comic

In one of the most memorable lines in the comic, Kopas says that she still feels the mark of 4chan a decade later. This, for me, is what makes the comic so outstanding: it reminds of all the different websites I used to frequent as a kid. There are so many communities out there that shaped much of who I am today...none of which exist still. - Kotaku

...demands to be read as a whole... Just as kopas and other young denizens of the internet tried on different identities, so too, do her words tumble between art styles that are at turns humorous, introspective, horny, and vulnerable. - ZAM

Reading this book feels like going through an old stash of porn before burning it outside under the stars, or maybe like popping a huge and pustular blackhead. It's ugly, difficult, and cathartic... Internet Murder Revenge Fantasy is something rare, a chance to connect with a vision of life and coming-of-age at once ferocious, squalid, thrilling, painful, and inimitably immediate. It is not to be missed. - Nerdly

...worth reading for anyone seeking to commemorate that lost time, and to make peace with their multiple past selves. It reminds the reader how much of an emotional cyborg they are: We have grown up both online and off, outsourcing to the internet a great deal of our development, allowing it to mediate our opinions and our capacity to feel. - Motherboard
