Comic: CTRL


On Wednesday January 27 we publish a comic by Dutch artist Mei-Li Nieuwland. The comic explores issues of privacy and security in a world where most of us share a lot of data about ourselves online each day.

The comic is not comics journalism like we normally publish; a partly fictional story, CTRL reads more like a philosophical essay, exploring the origins of the need to control society that is often felt by those in power. CTRL also shows why this quest for control is ultimately doomed to fail.
