Your Computer's Desktop Just Got Cooler, Babe...
The Weekly Comics Shipping List Direct to You

When it comes to finding out what comics are making their way onto the Isotope shelves each week you could always check the distributor's site, but everyone knows that can be a chore. What if someone developed a handy tool to hunt that information down for you and present it right on your desktop in an easily browsable and searchable format each week? Well we don't know what anyone else would say, but here at the Isotope we'd call those people who invented such a thing "genius."

With that in mind let us introduce you to genius John Roberts who invented the very cool dashboard widget known as iCOS or "iComicsOnSale." Providing weekly shipping updates beamed directly to the convenience of your desktop, this little morsel of brilliance gives you instant satisfaction and keeps you abreast of what comics are being released each week.

Go check out Mister Robert's website and download yourself this handy little piece of software. And while you're there, be sure to check out the preview of the iCOS Widget 1.3 with full pull-list capability. Very, very nice!
