Julian Assange: from hacker to Wikileaks

Wikileaks came to worldwide prominence on 05 April 2010 when it released the video entitled Collateral Murder of about a dozen Iraqi civilians and two Reuters journalists being killed or injured in a Baghdad suburb by fire from an American Apache helicopter. The graphic novel Julian Assange: dall’etica hacker a Wikileaks by Gianluca Costantini and Dario Morante retraces the key moments of the Wikileaks story and considers the characteristics of the broader hacker community that resulted in such a dramatic interruption of what had been the status quo between politics and the media.
