Because of the circumstances under which I received a copy of Shimmer #10, I didn't feel comfortable writing up individual story reviews or going into detail about the issue.

What I can say (and I am in no way affiliated with Shimmer) is that #10 was an excellent issue. I've never read Shimmer before, but having read an issue - this is something I'd actually pay for.
