It’s been more than three months since we last saw a new installment of The Private Eye, the name-your-own-price digital comic by Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin and Muntsa Vicente, but now the wait is over with the release of the fourth issue on Panel Syndicate.

Planned for “around 10 issues total,” The Private Eye is a sci-fi detective story set in a not-too-distant future where surveillance is so prevalent, and privacy so sacred, that everyone possesses a secret identity. Against that backdrop, the protagonist — an unlicensed journalist, akin to a private investigator — is drawn into a mysterious plot.

You can check out a preview of the 30-page fourth issue below.

Maybe their detective story can solve the mystery of “what the hell happened to the next issue of Hawkeye?”

What do they have to do with Hawkeye?

Really dug this issue myself, with a full review here if anybody is curious my thoughts:

Hey David, TPE is not being published by DC Comics (as shown at that web address) but by Panel Syndicate. They wish. ;)

lol whoops. Thanks for that! Typo!
