New This Week: July 12, 2006

ShatterBased 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 tomorrow:

The Pick of the Week is Ait/PlanetLAR's collection of the early issues of Shatter by Peter Gillis & Mike Saenz. Back in 1985 Shatter was the very first comic with artwork completely done on computer (a first-gerneation Mac) which gives it a novelty factor, but it's a darn good action/cyberpunk yarn too.
