"The Private Eye": An Internet-Free Future?
Are you interested in internet privacy? What about your Fourth Amendment Rights? Do you hanker for a screen-free future? Are you a fan of noir detective fiction? Are you thinking longingly of Southern California? Do you love graphic novels?
If you answered “yes!” to any of these questions (and even if you didn’t!), have we got the “Book” Group for you! Join Cam and Mitchell to discuss The Private Eye, an Eisner and Harvey Award Winning graphic novel by Brian K Vaughan, Marcos Martin and Muntsa Vincente, set in a future Los Angeles that is not so very different from now. From the publisher:
Set in an inevitable future of where everyone has a secret identity, THE PRIVATE EYE is an eerily prescient sci-fi mystery about an unlicensed private investigator who stumbles onto the most important case of his life.
The series is set in 2076, a time after “the cloud has burst”, revealing everyone's secrets. As a result, there is no more Internet, and people are excessively guarded about their identity, to the point of appearing only masked in public.
Participants will receive copies of the graphic novel that can be read on any laptop, tablet or device that supports pdf files. We’ll then convene over dinner to talk about this topical and thought-provoking publication.
