Overview
"Colorful and relevant..." -Slate
From the creator of the New York Times bestselling series SAGA, comes the three-time, Eisner nominated, PanelSyndicate.com's digital comics sensation THE PRIVATE EYE Finally, this book is coming to print in a beautiful deluxe hardcover edition
Set in an inevitable future of where everyone has a secret identity, THE PRIVATE EYE is an eerily prescient sci-fi mystery about an unlicensed private investigator who stumbles onto the most important case of his life.
The series is set in 2076, a time after "the cloud has burst," revealing everyone's secrets. As a result, there is no more Internet, and people are excessively guarded about their identity, to the point of appearing only masked in public.
"Readers and retailers have been begging us for a physical version of this story ever since we first announced our hard-boiled parable about the future of privacy in America, so when the time came, Marcos and I knew that we had to go with Image Comics, the most creator-friendly publisher of print comics ever." -Brian K. Vaughan

Vaughan (Saga) and Martin (Batgirl: Year One) team up for a noirish SF adventure that’s as absorbing as it is gorgeous. Decades after “the cloud” bursts, pushing everyone’s secrets into the open and destroying all semblance of online security, the Internet is no more and people have become obsessed with privacy: all adults wear masks in public. The press and police have combined into the armed Fourth Estate. When P.I., a paparazzo, is hired by a woman who rapidly turns up dead, he and the client’s sister dive headlong into a conspiracy that could threaten the privacy (and lives) of everyone they love. Vaughan and Martin’s vision of the future is chilling in its realism, but fascinating in its hyperbole. Martin’s art—accentuated beautifully by Vicente’s colors—handles thrilling action and contemplative scenes equally well, allowing Vaughan’s script to dig deep into identity, the balance between liberty and security, the role of technology in our lives, and the implicit trust we place in it. (Dec.)
