FYI: Now Available: The Making of THE PRIVATE EYE

Now available on Panel Syndicate, “The Making of The Private Eye,” a robust package featuring the pitch document (original working title: Secret Society), script pages, sketches, layouts and more. Process junkies, take note: this is an invaluable inside look at every stage of production for one of this year’s most fascinating comics. Even more interesting, it features a series of emails between Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin watermarked with “BkvLeaks.” It takes us through the process of preparing the first issue and allowing readers to name their price when purchasing it online. There’s a lot of content here, so I’d argue it’s worth dropping the same amount into the tip jar you’ve been paying for individual issues.



  1. It’s exciting to see the proliferation of creator-owned work available directly to the fans becoming a regular event. This “Making Of…” looks pretty cool and I’m looking forward to checking it out.

    Any chance of iFanboy highlighting other ‘high profile’ creator-owned work? Joshua Hale Fialkov & Joe Infurnari just released the first issue of THE BUNKER online and it’s fantastic!

  2. Just got it! Gonna go read it now!

  3. This is such godsend! I’d say pay MORE than you’ve been paying for individual issues! Especially if you’re like me, trying to break into the industry and looking for way to get better, be better, and more importantly PITCH PACKAGE better! YEAH BABY!!

  4. I need to start getting these.

    Perfect jumpiing-in point?
