Based on the NCRL list for this week's comics shipping from Diamond, here are a few things to look for at the local comic shop later today:
The Pick of the Week is The Complete Future Shocks by Alan Moore and a host of talented British artists. This collects all of Moore's early "Future Shocks" stories from 2000 A.D.; although Moore was still developing as a writer, these are some fun 6-8-page tales.
