Gladstone, the so-called Internet Messiah, has not only failed to bring back the World Wide Web, which disappeared mysteriously several months earlier, but his search has also landed him in a New York City psychiatric ward. The rest of the world isn't doing so well either, filled with disconnected Internet users still jonesing for a fix, and an increasingly draconian government, interrogating and detaining anyone deemed a "person of interest" under the NET Recovery Act.

For Gladstone, however, finding the Net is less important than heading to Los Angeles to win back his ex-wife. He takes up residence on the couch of his old friend, gossip-blogger Tobey, while trying to rebuild his lost romance. But when Gladstone's old journal account of the Internet Apocalypse goes "paper viral," his newfound celebrity puts him at the forefront of the Internet Reclamation Movement. Soon he is the target of shadowy government agents and a reluctant collaborator with Anonymous, who provides a clue that promises to explain the Internet's disappearance.

Full of funny, yet cutting social commentary, Wayne Gladstone's Agents of the Internet Apocalypse continues the series that imagines a dystopian world without the Web.
