Brian K Vaughan And Marcos Martin's The Private Eye Hit Six Figures, In Sales And Dollars


With its eight issue published today, the digtal pay-what-you-want comic The Private Eye by Bryan K Vaughan, Marcos Martin and Muntsa Vicente has hit sales of "well into "six figures in total – and in revenue. Which means each issue, on average that's at least 15,000 downloads an issue – and more importantly $15,000 in revenue an issue. And likely to be considerably more.

After the digital Cloud "bursts," all of our darkest secrets are revealed for the entire world to see, and America quickly renews its love affair with privacy. Set in an inevitable future where we'll ALL have secret identities, our mystery follows an unlicensed private investigator on the most important case of his life.
