By Joe Keatinge, Leila Del Duca & Owen Gieni

Shutter began its 2016 with an issue spotlighting the relationship between lead protagonist Kate and Huckleberry. #18 was an emotionally powerful portrait of the crests, crashes and aftermath of a love affair which set the tone for a stellar year from Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca’s creator owned series. Hence, it is only appropriate for its penultimate chapter of the year, Shutter focuses once again on Huckleberry. And once again, her story proves to be a poignant lesson in not only the pain of the past but how growth may emerge from it.

Tyler’s Recommendation…

686229_3344b244bdd47ccc55618e640859f95d98fca9c6Kill or Be Killed #1

Assigned with killing one person a month, an NYU grad student must figure out who to kill, and still keep a conscience in this crazy world.  Brubaker himself described it as Death Wish meets Breaking Bad and 1970’s Spider-Man” Continue reading Indubitable Issues and Pull List (08/03/16)

This Week’s Finest: Shutter #22

Shutter 22 Lelia Del Duca
Leila Del Duca

By Joe Keatinge, Leila Del Duca & Owen Gieni

I’m beginning to worry that this comic is going to break my heart.

Over the course of twenty-one issues Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca have crafted some of the most imaginative world-building in comics. The environments may resemble our own in some ways, while at the same time being full of fantastical features. The most prominent of these elements is the wide range of life residing therein. From subtle twists on the familiar humanoid to gigantic monsters, Shutter is full of visual surprises. Indeed, this expert combination of idea and image has ensured that each installment has been packed with moments of wonder.
