Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Betrayal, shifting power dynamics, and cybercrime welcome to the 21st century version of The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli. SmarterComics has updated what is arguably one of the most influential texts in world history for the digital era.

These crisply illustrated panels explore the relationship between Roxie, a brilliant young computer programmer/hacker, and Theodore, a man who pays for Roxies university education by working as a shoeshine boy. When Theodore takes the fall for one of Roxies crimes, she agrees to share her future success with him once he gets out of prison.

But as Niccolo Machiavelli knows, nothing is ever quite that simple. When Theodore has at last served out his term, Roxie has gone on to create a successful social media business from scratch. She doesnt see a reason to split her hard-earned profits with an old ex-con friend. For his part, Theodore has spent years learning how to survive among con-artists, murderers, and thieves.

The Prince isnt just about how to outmaneuver other people in pursuit of power. Its about the human toll of success. Becoming a prince isnt necessarily going to make you popular, but it will make you powerful. In the realm of kings, friendship is a luxury, strategy is a necessity, and the fear of losing your grip is a constant companion. It may be good to be the King, but its never easy.
