View from the Gutters #59 — The Private Eye, Vol. 1


This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Private Eye, by Marcos Martin, Brian K. Vaughan, and Muntsa Vicente. Set in a privacy obsessed future 40-some years after an event known as “the cloud burst”, The Private Eye is a weird an colorful detective story.

In this world the internet has been abandoned and forgotten, and privacy has become so de rigueur that no one leaves the house without a disguise on. It follows paparazzo-for-hire P.I., who is hired to do a background check the client themself, and—as one so often does—soon finds himself at the center of a murder-mystery dodging thugs and evading the police press.

The Private Eye is published as a digital exclusive, and is  available on a “Pay What You Want” basis (including free) at

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Eric Manix, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
