SHUTTER focuses on breathtaking fantasy adventure

June 12, 2014

Kate Kristopher’s otherworldly adventure continues as early artwork for the fourth issue is revealed

The adventure continues in the urban fantasy series SHUTTER, written by Joe Keatinge (GLORY, TECH JACKET) and drawn by Leila del Duca, as Kate Kristopher takes on all manner of paranormal entities and monstrous obstacles in issue #4. Now Kate has left the life she built to confront the life she left behind.

“Hey ladies and gents! As usual, Joe threw some really wonderful concepts and challenges at me this issue,” said del Duca. “Highlights being the first three pages done in a more illustrative style and layout telling the origin story of Harrington the butler. I also dig drawing the Colonel, a super old lady and war hero who dresses fashionably, who helped raise Kate. However, my favorite scene by far is the one where Mikey the platypus chokes out Shaw. I mean… there are no words to describe how delightfully ridiculous and exciting it was to draw these characters in a dark alleyway, hoping to get out of a hit job and then BAM. Yup. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the preview!"

Keatinge added: "First and foremost, holy moley—we gotta thank every single person supporting Shutter for supporting Shutter! From our enthusiastic initial orders on each issue, to the stunning sell through and avalanche of great feedback—Leila, Owen, Ed and I appreciate every bit of pure enthusiasm every reader drives us with and all the hard work our retail partners put into making sure the books get into their hands.”

SHUTTER #4 will hit stores on 7/9. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code: MAY140729. Final Order Cutoff for retailers is 6/16.
