After a giant week of comics that required a few days of relaxation, Brian Vaughan and company laughed at their readers. They must think comic book journalists are inadequate or they do not care about their lives. This band of recluse hooligans are just plain sadistic, due to the fact they threw a giant comic book at the internet with no warning. The Private Eye has once again returned for another installment amongst the weekly grind of everything else in comics. This is probably one of the biggest issues yet, due to some of the flat out insane plot choices used. It’s up to the mastermind creative team to figure out what exactly will happen, and giving their recent track record of incredible titles like Saga and Doctor Strange: The Oath my fellow readers can shut their mouths and enjoy this wonderful story.
Our first new storyline is THE PRIVATE EYE, a forward-looking mystery we created with colorist Muntsa Vicente. Set in a future where privacy is considered a sacred right and everyone has a secret identity, The Private Eye is a serialized sci-fi detective story for mature readers.
Their have been no plot issues or even small concerns with the story being told here. The high concepts weave through the main title in the most creative way imaginable that leads to some stellar storytelling throughout the book. Readers of Brian’s previous works just expect greatness now, the sky is blue and his comic books are incredible. The plot here is starting to get really think in some interesting different dynamics within the issue. In addition practically all of the character moments and dialogue are simply perfect. If you can find a dull character hiding in the pages of this book, I will personally go eat a cockroach.
I am getting tired of repeating myself on what is another stellar looking issue from Martin and Vicente. The two mix perfectly together in the context of this title, they have some fantastic chemistry together leading to diverse comic books. Lines are rendered beautifully in a precise manner. The story has a few rounded lines but in general they are only use for dramatic effect. In a less competent artist or writers hands this series would lose my interest fast.
Those looking for a comic book to take it’s readers seriously give this a try. Everything you know about social media, according this title is a lie. The bubble burst and bad things happen, this is just the beginning.
