A Review: SHUTTER #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of SHUTTER #1 from Image Comics. Joe Keatinge writes, Leila Del Duca draws and Owen Gieni colors.

Kate’s life is adrift. She changes careers every few years, unable to find something that holds her interest. And it’s a tough interest to hold, since her father (and several generations before) was a famous explorer. He’s gone now, and Kate’s trying to find herself. But maybe something will find her instead.

What really hits me in this book is the world. You can get lost for hours in the backgrounds on each page. To label it a semi-near future with aliens and cool tech just doesn’t do it justice. The art is just amazing and it fills the story and the world with color on so many levels. It shows a degree of synchronicity between writer and artist that most comic book people only dream about.

Kate’s story is one of discovery, and I think it’s going to be a fun one. This is definitely a must read.

SHUTTER #1 is available now at your FLCS or at imagecomics.com.
