So let me get this straight; comics pirates have been tapping directly into Marvel’s servers to get the pristine digital copiesthat they post like clockwork every Wednesday?
It was left to detectives David Brothers and David Uzumeri to launch a thorough investigation of the matter, blog about it, and actually find the breach and alert Marvel to it.
So as of today, the pirates will have to find a new workaround.
In the movie version of this story, Brothers will be portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor and Uzumeri by Elijah Wood. Jason Shiga will draw the comics adaptation.
