I’m sure you all saw this but in case you missed this holiday offering, a new chapter in The Private Eye, the futuristic tale of a world where privacy exists by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin, went up a few days ago. It’s based on a pay-what-you-want model. $3.99 feels about right, if you ask me.
I was rereading the first few chapters of this not long ago, and this is a wicked good yarn with a strong point about own need to disclose everything via social media. It makes a nice counterpoint to the Spike Jonze film HER, which satirizes our need to twiddle on our gadgets 23/7. Its my understanding that there are no even remote plans to ever print this right now, so download away, kids.
