In need of a moment of escapism, Tom returns to his favorite digital comics. This time though, the comic is disturbingly on point with what Tom has been experiencing. As he continues to read, Tom realizes that there are encrypted messages in the comic from an unknown ally who clearly knows everything Tom has been up to.
When he discovers that hacktivist group Backchannel is aware of his new abilities and reaching out to him for help, Tom is set on a very dangerous path.
Backchannel is an original concept by legendary comic icon Stan Lee, with story by Stan Lee and LINE Webtoon’s own Head of Content Tom Akel. Art for Backchannel is created by Andie Tong (Spider-man, Batman Strikes, TRON). This sci-fi drama powers up this spring.
“I’m elated to bring a different kind of hero to LINE Webtoon with teenage master hacker Tom Tanner. This is a story filled with mystery and adventure of an underdog programming prodigy who will go to the ends of the Earth to save his father – you won’t want to miss it. Excelsior!” said Stan Lee.
“Stan Lee is a living legend and it’s an honor that he has created this story exclusively for LINE Webtoon,” said Junkoo Kim, Founder and Head of LINE Webtoon. “Readers will be entranced by this genre blending world that echoes series from Spider-man to Mr. Robot.”
Readers will be able to dive into the hacker world of Backchannel in 2017. To download the official LINE Webtoon app, visit the Apple App Store and Google Play.
