Image Comics Anounces New Story Arc for "Shutter"
Writer Joe Keatinge (RINGSIDE, GLORY, TECH JACKET), artist extraordinaire Leila Del Duca, and colorist Owen Gieni (MANIFEST DESTINY) will launch a new story arc in their ongoing globe-trotting urban fantasy series SHUTTER this February.
Praise for SHUTTER:
“As in the best fantasy, all the wildly imaginative elements come together to create a story that makes you care.”—“The Best Graphic Novels of 2015” Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog
“Keatinge and Del Duca have created a contemporary world that teems with casual miracles and feels all the more real and lived in for it."—Booklist (Starred)
"Fun and vibrant, Shutter is a wild ride of a comic"—Entertainment Weekly
Previously in SHUTTER, Kate Kristopher, once the most famous explorer of an Earth far more fantastic than the one we know, was forced to return to the adventurous life she left behind when a family secret threatened to destroy everything she spent her life protecting.
In SHUTTER #18, Kate knows everything—and we don't! The first issue in a new chapter, “All Roads,” that sheds light on the past Kate (and company) tried to leave behind, and where they’re going next. All roads converge. Not everyone survives the trip.
“Shutter has operated at a breakneck pace of raising questions and expanding the mystery around Kate Kristopher's family, but with ‘All Roads,’ Kate knows the truth behind everything and we take the time to see its dire consequence,” said Keatinge.
“This arc features some never-seen-before backstories involving romance, imaginary friends, and forbidden origami toys, all set in incredible locations around the world!” said Del Duca. “Owen and I have a blast experimenting with new art styles, as per usual, in between our typical textured style, and look forward to having you join the Shutter characters in the next leg of their journey.”
SHUTTER #18 (Diamond code: DEC150549) hits stores Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 11th, 2016.
