There are so many great comics coming out these days, you can’t possibly afford them all. (Unless you can, in which case….let’s…talk…) It becomes difficult to figure out which ones to add to the pull list, which ones to push aside and trade wait for (if you remember), and which ones to just allow yourself to skip over. I’m not good at saying “no”, especially to good storytelling, but my budget demands it, so I’ve found myself recently being much harsher than I’d like to be, for the sake of my family’s eating situation. I feel like a monster, holding all these great comics, scrutinizing them for the tiniest flaw. Ahah! I don’t care for this one panel that much, off the pull list you go!

Shutter #1 is one of the comics I didn’t want to even try, because based on the gorgeous preview art and Joe Keatinge’s previous work (insert Glory evangelizing here), I knew there was a good chance I’d have to add it to the pull and I’m trying to spend less money, I don’t need this. I DON’T NEED THIS. But uh, I did read it. And I was right. And it’s fantastic and hit me on an emotional level I was not expecting at all. I’m here for it, I’m invested, and I need more people to read it with  me. This is more of a recap, not a spoiler free review, but if you’re on the fence and need more convincing about the series in general, check it out.

Woah. Super well-said. Thanks for writing such a great critique.

I’m so proud of my old Denver friend LEILA, I read her new book Shutter and it was great, and of course the art was incredibly beautiful. Pick up a copy of issue one!



OH MY GAWD! Thank you so, so much, Sam! I can’t believe you did this!!!!!! It’s beautiful. Hey, remember when you called me “Lame Art Dumb Duck Head?” Still the best nickname I’ve ever had…

Day 101/365
This is Kate Kristopher the awesome lead to Shutter.
Shutter is amazing and you should be reading it. It’s written by joekeatinge with art by Leila del Duca ( assortedfoliage ) it’s gorgeous and I can’t wait to see where the story goes from the first issue. I also look forward to putting my hands on a physical, I bought it on comixology and you can toooooo!!! You should. It’s the bee’s knees.
I look forward to doing a real fanart and incorporating something from the narrative in a future drawing, but there’s so much to look forward to from this world in issue 2, I also might just make up a kid adventure and show her with her dad, that’ll be fun. Everything’ll be fun. When I do I’ll most def share it here.
Before bed last night I did a quick sketch of the Lady Knight and Prince from yesterday, but I’m feeling crummy in my ladybusiness so inking it is too much effort, but I want to share that too. I really want to write their story, I just need the time. I mean, the final will possibly be around 100 or so pages, probably more, but I need to write it before I can really know how long it’ll become.
m’kay, keep your drawing hand strong, I’ll be back tomorrow with something new :D

I love everything about this!! Wonderful work!!!



Yaaaaay! More fabulous Kate fanart!! Thanks, jpds14!

Sketch of Kate Kristopher from Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca's new image book, Shutter!
Man, I’ve been too busy lately, and it’s been too long since I took a break to draw something just for fun. I read the first issue of Shutter this morning and it’s pretty badass. You should read it. I’ve heard it’s sold out at the distributor level, so you can wait for a second printing, or buy it on Comixology!



Wow! This is wonderful and perfect!!

Not only did I get to cuddle a ridiculously cute golden retriever puppy at my Muse Comics signing, but my writer friend Todd Jones sent me this adorable image of his dog, Dargo, with my beloved comic. If anyone else wants to post pictures of their dogs with Shutter, that would be the coolest…just sayin’.

All in all, if dogs and puppies are involved, it’s a day well spent. But even without these wonderful creatures, today has been amazing. I’m so, so damn happy that Shutter has been released upon the world and that we’ve gotten so much positive feedback. 

Love and hugs and infinite thanks! I can’t wait to share the next step of Kate’s tale with you! (hah hah, that’s kind of a pun…you know…cause I mentioned dogs before? No? okay…)

So excited to have a back-up story in Shutter #1, which is shipping tomorrow from Image comics!  Shutter is Joe Keatinge’s new series, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to be amazing!  
I originally wrote and drew this 4-page back-up story for Hell Yeah! but that book has had some delays so Joe was kind enough to run it in the first issue of his new series instead.  He told me that I could do anything I wanted as long as it was self-contained so I cooked up a little humor story about giant monsters. 
The coloring is by my great friend Catherine Peach, who is an amazing comics artist in addition to being a fantastic colorist.

SHUTTER #1 is finally ALMOST here!

This Wednesday, April 9th is the big day. Been amped about this for a while.

And here’s a preview of all four covers (by Leila del Duca, Emma Ríos, Dustin Weaver & Brandon Graham) and the preview that’s going around websites right now. I’ve added the last spread of the title sequence as it seemed weird to cut off there, so consider this a TUMBLR EXCLUSIVE. 

It’s $3.50. Features 21 pages of a lead feature. Two pages of what will eventually be a letters column, but is just Leila and me talking for right now. Four pages of comics by Ryan Alexander-Tanner & Catherine Peach. One page of our regular Tiger Lawyer comic by writer Ryan Ferrier & a rotating series of artists. One ad because I really love Michel Fiffe’s Copra. Then a back cover with ANOTHER Leila del Duca & Owen Gieni image, credits, etc. 

Here’s Leila & me talking about it with Comic Book Resources. Here’s me talking about it with Lindsey Morris of Girls Gone Geek. Here’s Leila talking about it with Multiversity.

If you live in Portland, Oregon you can hang out with me on Wednesday at Cosmic Monkey. If you live in Missoula, Montana, you can hang out with Leila on Wednesday at Muse Comics. If you live in Southern California you can hang out with BOTH of us on Friday at Beach Ball Comics

And finally, here are some thoughts on Shutter from other people who make comic books:

"SHUTTER is bold, smart fun — a stunning book on every front. Keatinge and del Duca have crafted something special — at once intimate and epic."
- Scott Snyder (Batman, The Wake, Wytches)
"Joyous and Heartfelt science-fiction pop with all the capital-R Romance of  the last roll of polaroid film on Earth."
- Kieron Gillen (Young Avengers, The Wicked + The Divine)

Please do spread the word! And have a good week!
As usual, WHAT JOE SAID! Really excited to see everyone at Muse Comics this Wednesday, and then everyone at Beach Ball Comics on Friday. I hope you all enjoy reading Issue 1. Let us know what you think! In the meantime, finishing drawing the last few pages of Shutter #5 this week. I can’t wait for you guys to get that deep into the story. Joe keeps writing the most entertaining things!

The comic book/music guys from Run By The Gun hired me to do a pin-up of their character Sarah. Here’s the final and a couple process shots.
