The Morris Worm (for “Boundless”).

My submission to the anthology Boundless volume 1, a science comic anthology and a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, is a 9 page comic all about computer science, and specifically the very first computer virus, called the Morris Worm. The story is about how the Worm worked and also how it is a precursor to all the major computer and cybersecurity issues we still face today. Boundless makes its debut at Boston Comic Con 2016.  The color image is a special-edition hi-res print exclusively for Kickstarter backers.

I created this comic in honor and memory of my beloved father, Costas, a Ph.D in material science engineering (Columbia University 1974) and always encouraged my love of science.
