Years after the digital cloud bursts and exposes all of our most confidential hopes and fears THE PRIVATE EYE is set in the inevitable future whe. We're only as sick as our secrets This was good In fact it was very goodCan you imagine what it would be like when all your secrets that you think the internet could keep goes out in the open Can you imagine how someone's search history could ruin someone's reputationThat was exactly what happened to the world where Private Eye is set It's pretty geniusThe main protagonist PI is a private investigator in a world where being one is illegal I think it's even illegal to be a paparazzi or those things Basically he's an underground investigator who people hire to find out stuff that no one else could because it's illegal to investigate other people What happens behind closed doors are one person's business and no one else At least that's the ideal scenario But of course not everyone would be okay with thatOh and did I mention that Internet is gone Banned Yep In this futuristic world internet is phased out Cool huhI won't get into detail with the plot because I don't want to spoil it for you All I can say is it was great Here are the some of the things I liked about it It wasn't trying to be too ambitious with its depiction of the future which I think worked really well It’s so easy to see these things happening in a few years Being set in the future doesn't necessarily mean you get to have out of this world things You can be advanced but still grounded to reality If you have been following me for a while you'll probably already know how much I love mystery I love being kept in the dark until the right time comes and the truth is revealed for everyone This definitely was like that PI's grandfather was sort of how we are shown what the past was like He throws in stuff from the past where PI just says it's from the past Blah Blah But I liked that I liked how they use that way to tell us how the past was in a non boring kind of way THAT FUCKING KISS An unexpected one Haha The ending was a big WTF The characters were great I really liked this girl who drives PI around All of them had their own persona which was great It was so easy to connect to them But of course there were some stuff that I wasn't really a fan of The cronies of the main antagonist speaks French Do I understand French No I don't I want to but I really could not understand anything in French Did they translate what they were saying in English Nope Was there any attempt Nope The

    A man with a camera lurks in the shadows of a building looking across at a building opposite where a beautiful woman is undressing She takes off her coat; she takes off her jewellery; she takes off her dress; and then she takes off her skin to reveal another person underneath The world of the future is a pretty weird place to say the leastIn 2075 the internet is no Everyone stored information in The Cloud until The Cloud “burst” and ruined everyone’s lives Search histories recorded conversations private emails texts and tweets – all of it came out and inverted the world Now privacy is a premium with everyone – EVERYONE – wearing masks and disguises in their day to day lives and if anyone wants to find out about anyone else they hire a paparazzo like Patrick Immelmann aka PI to get information Ayoung woman called Taj McGill hires PI to investigate her PI reluctantly agrees but things become complicated when Taj is murdered and PI realises he’s stumbled into a massive terrorist plot Hunted by international assassins global conglomerates and a maniac with a modified space shuttle PI Raveena Taj’s sister and his faithful chauffeur the teenage Mel aka Lady Nunchuk must survive it all and stop the madman Brian Vaughan and Marcos Martin’s The Private Eye is the most entertaining neo noir story you’re likely to read It follows the conventions of the classic sleuth story – the jaded investigator the femme fatale the underdog against the powerful a mystery that leads to a greater mystery even the sassy accomplice – but does so with a freshness and lightness that’s enormously invigorating It also helps that this is an incredibly good looking comic thanks to Martin’s stunning art and Muntsa Vicente’s bright and beautiful colours While it’s set 60 years in the future and is clearly futuristic it’s not implausibly so The vehicle designs are different especially Mel’s car which rocks but they’re not a million miles away from what’s on the road now and there are still high street shops including depressingly McDonald’s The changes are there but subtle – nobody has smart phones any since the internet no longer exists but computer games are still played on wall sized screens just not online Bizarrely the press have replaced the police as the guardians of law and order and libraries have become fortresses since information is the new currency The new world order where disguises are de rigueur as people have become their former internet avatars means Martin can let his imagination loose leading to some eye popping pages where crowds of superheroes monsters cartoon characters and animals populate the streets and the ones not wearing costumes are the “weird” ones it’s a world filled with cosplayers Vaughan’s on top form with this series His characters are sharply realised his plot clicks along at a perfect pace with the mystery unfolding in satisfactory pieces and his future world and it’s society is convincing and fascinating Even the small details are brilliant like the Schwartzenegger Medical Center PI’s office in the Chateau Marmont and the hint that Rand Paul or Ron was once President I really like PI’s Gramps too You know everyone these days who has tattoo sleeves? Gramps was one of those people when he was younger; as an old guy with those tats? Ergh – doesn’t look right You might be looking for the book on or on your library catalogue and you won’t find it because here’s the thing about The Private Eye it’s available only digitally and only on the website wwwpanelsyndicatecom owned and operated by Vaughan Martin and Vicente It’s also designed to be read on tabletslaptop screens because the pages are rectangular Here’s the other thing about The Private Eye it’s completely free Well you can download it for free as a DRM free PDF OR you could be cool and chip in a few bucks to show your appreciation Even if you don’t want to pay full graphic novel price for it give them something rather than take it for nothing uality work deserves to be rewarded The Private Eye is an utterly brilliant and highly original neo noir story that crime and comics fans will absolutely adore First class storytelling writing and art The Private Eye is the full comics package – don’t miss it

    A surprising intensification of Vaughan's sense of humour The premise is absolutely relevant And an edgy irony becomes a very good vehicle to create what is a post dystopian world Maybe the first narrative in comics I have seen that uses privacy as leitmotif And now with the Institute for Humane Technology Jaron Lainer's books and conferences the encryption offered in whatsapp and messenger and Apple's and Google's very subtle new features to help users control their screen time maybe we will see of it I do hope so

    Set in a futuristic world where people wear silly over the top disguises Fast paced Witty dialogue And some really hilarious moments Like what Lady Nunchuck used as her improvised mask Haha Despite being in the future the artstyle chosen is rather retro A thoroughly enjoyable read But I don’t think I’ll continue with the series The artstyle turned me off

    Saga is one of the most loved comics of the moment but lots of people including me until yesterday don't seem to be paying anything like the same attention to the writer's other current series Perhaps that's because it's online only a wonderfully perverse delivery system for a story set in a post internet future the cloud burst Removing so much of the modern world at a stroke is of course a way of talking about the modern world but also enables a retro futurist noir story all gumshoes and LA sleaze It's not Saga's eual but it's still well worth a look

    Wow So good I was expecting something good from the man that writes one of my favorite series Saga but this is just amazing The story pulls you in it from the first page and the art ispfffff fantastic Can't find other words just read it

    Clicking ’s “one click” button to make a purchase with a credit card The latest celebrity harassed with leaked photos These are examples of how much faith we put in the technology that connects us; technology that has come to dictate our day to day way of life But what happens when that technology fails all of us unleashing our personal information and our dirty little secrets to the world This is the concept behind The Private Eye a comic that my thoughts spin back to every time I upload something to the cloudThe irony is that when writer Brian K Vaughan and artist Marcos Martin came up with the idea they decided to make The Private Eye only available online Better yet the DRM free creator owned comic is available for whatever the hell you want to pay for it at wwwpanelsyndicatecom where Vaughan and Martin along with colourist Muntsa Vincente intend to offer stories in the future in as many languages as they canThe year is 2076 and after the “cloud burst” anonymity has become an imperative Not online — because there no longer is an online “Internet” is a curious thing of the past Now the greatest celebrities are librarians and the law? Journalists with integrity gasp who are licensed to get the truth no matter what masks you try to hide behind But there are still paparazzi who will try to skirt the law to get that information for a good pricePaparazzi like “PI” who are paid by jilted spouses to find their cheating significant others or to hunt down highschool crushes or to find out just how many of your dirty little secrets a potential employer could find out about you if they dig too deeplyAnd that’s when the beautiful woman walks into the private detective’s officeMuch like the futuristic Bladerunner The Private Eye pays homage to the old noir detective stories though it is ironically not as dark Vincente uses vibrant colours to enhance Martin’s artwork which initially seems a bit sparse in its lines and details Until you look closely and spot all the little references Don’t be distracted by the outlandish costumes no matter how elaborate they might be In both Martin’s art and Vaughan’s writing are than enough remnants of our current world in this strange future The I read The Private Eye the I wonder when its fantasy will become our realityGetting back to the story the beautiful Taj walks through PI’s door sending him on a seemingly wild goose change involving a lot of murder and mayhem If you aren’t already following the mystery of The Private Eye then grab a copy of volume one which collects issues #1 5 and costs–whatever you want it to costOriginally posted at wwwWomenWriteAboutComicscom
