Shatter by Michael Saenz And Peter Gillis

Product Description


The revolution will be digitized! The first ever digitally created comic book, Shatter's beautiful dot-matrix art was drawn on a first-generation Macintosh which boasted a mere 128 KB of RAM. Long before Wacom tablets were invented, artist Mike Saenz' work was the painstaking result of the click-by-agonizing-click of the mouse. And it was through Shatter's innovations in technique and software that forever changed the way comic creators, publishers, and readers looked at how comics could be made. Prophetic in approach and subject matter alike, Shatter forecasted a world where body modification, privatized law enforcement, corporate ownership of cities, electrowave club culture, and stem cell research were the norm. Utterly controversial, beyond innovative, and without a doubt one of the most prescient and downright sexy comics of the 1980s, this long-lost gem wraps itself in a sheep's clothing of Blade Runner-style trappings to deliver a stealthy mainline syringe full of the RNA of genius..
