Reviews - What do customers think about Shatter?

Sci-Fi at it's best  Oct 30, 2007
This is and always will be one of my favorite graphic novels ever. HOWEVER, buyer be warned that there are two versions of this novel, a colored and a black and white one.

This is the black and white one.

This product also leaves out the last episode that finishes the novel, for some wacked out reason. That's the only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. My suggestion is to find the colored version, which usually has the same looking front cover except the background is BLACK instead of white.

As far as the story and art is concerned, it is TOP NOTCH, especially being the first comic ever to be done using a computer. LOVE IT!
Fairly neat--uses a rat brain-- cheaper than a MICROCHIP any day!  Jan 29, 2007
This is a very cool, highly recommended book. If you're a digital artist of whatever stripe, you'll be interested in the art and production of "Shatter." Long time veterans of digital graphics will either look at this with either warm nostalgia, as I do, or with dread recalling the old days of computer graphics. Either way, you have to admire the intricate, painstaking work of creating a comic in one of the earliest paint programs (MacPaint). In black and white. With a mouse. *click!* *click!*

Stylistically, Mike Saenz' work reminds me of a jittery, over-caffeinated digitized version of French cartoonist Moebius (Jean Giraud). That's a good thing. 1985's "Shatter" itself is set in a world that's a head-on collision between 1982's "Blade Runner" and 1997's "The Fifth Element."

I have the original comics from the eighties, which were in color whereas this graphic novel is in black and white. I'm a little torn on the color issue, but the art in this book is actually much, much sharper than it was in the original comics, and works well, maybe even better, without the color. The original comics were colored by hand using watercolors, I believe, after being printed on a dot matrix printer.

All in all, this is a very solid book, and I'm very pleased that it is back in print for a new generation of fans.
