Praise for SHELTERED:
"Sheltered #1 is a solid debut, one that should have readers back next month for the next installment. I'll definitely come back for more.” --Greg McElhatton, Comic Book Resources

Sheltered #1 begins to prove its true worth when it tears away from the obvious comparisons and the starting-point premise that has been well-tread in modern science fiction and horror.” --Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics

“Depending how they handle things, this could easily turn into the epic that The Walking Dead has in a post-apocalyptic setting.” --Stuart Conover, ScienceFiction.com

“With its startling conclusion and inventive set-up, the team behind Sheltered is off to a stellar start. It's getting harder and harder to put a fresh spin on end-of-the-world narratives, but Brisson and Christmas have made it look easy.” --Melissa Grey, IGN

“It's rare when a new comic book series can surprise you… Sheltered starts off with a different take on the survival stories we've seen many times. If that wasn't enough, Ed Brisson completely pulls the rug out from underneath your feet. Getting something new and different is such a treat.” --Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine

Sheltered #1 leaves readers with a surprising twist at the last page. I can't wait to see what happens in the second issue.” --Jorge Solis, Bloody Disgusting

Sheltered is a gut check. Brisson and Christmas have decided to come out swinging. A great read.” --Iann Robinson, Crave Online

The first volume of SHELTERED collects issues 1-5 of the series and hits stores on December 11, 2014 for $9.99. Pre-orders can be placed using Diamond Code OCT130500.
