SHUTTER #1 is
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.
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!
All New Ghost Rider #1
"Yay! Mac N’ Cheese!"
Robbie loves his little brother Gabe.
If you guys somehow haven’t gotten the new Ghost Rider, lemme do you a favor and say GET IT GET IT GET IT GET IT!!!! Written by Felipe Smith, whom I was already a big fan of, and drawn by Tradd Moore of Luther Strode fame, who is so good at characters/acting, style, action…it’s almost unsettling.
Plus, with all the relaunches from both Marvel and DC, this is the first one that actually felt like a “first issue” to me. Like you can read this and know nothing about continuity or Ghost Rider and you are just locked in. Just an amazing job…I am SUPER excited for this series. Mac N’ Cheese!!
Layouts/inks/colors for “that one spread.”
Rocket Girl #4, the massive action issue, out as of last week. Hope you guys liked it!
This here Akira scene was a big inspiration for that chase scene in Rocket Girl. We talk about this and much more in our play-by-play of Rocket Girl #4 in the brand spankin’ NEW PODCORN EPISODE! Give it a listen!
