Indiana Jones was a globetrotting treasure hunter who's since been supplanted by other characters such as Lara Croft and Nathan Drake in the eyes of pop culture. He's still exceedingly well-regarded though and serves as a great template for other characters of his ilk. Characters like Kate Kristopher of Shutter, written by Joe Keatinge and illustrated by Leila del Duca. And Kate is is preparing for a new adventure and a sibling rivalry, starting in Shutter #7 on December 10.
"Working with Leila to build up everything Kate Kristopher is and where she exists was our big thrill in putting together the first arc,” added Keatinge. “Now that it's built up we're digging in underneath its base, chipping away at its structure and showing that this madcap world of Victorian robots and magic rat kids is founded on something far more wicked than Kate ever knew."
World traveler Kate Kristopher has faced monsters, ninjas, ghosts and all manner of perils in her previous explorations, but in Shutter #7 the stakes are raised when Kate finally comes face-to-face with another sibling she never knew about, the one who’s dead set on destroying what little Kate has left. This new story arc will welcome legendary letterer John Workman to the team by way of his commemorative variant cover and a comprehensive career retrospective written by Shea Hennum.
"The highlights of drawing Issue 7: everything,” said Del Duca. “Oh, and monsters, monsters, and some more ugly monsters. I got to draw a waterbear and some other creatures inspired by gross sea animals. See cover illustration for more information. Also: more family drama! Also also, infinite thanks for reading this ridiculous book. We hope you love it as much as we do.”
Shutter #7 (Cover A, Del Duca, Diamond Code OCT140604) arrives in stores this December 10 and will be available for $3.50. There are three other covers available: Cover B by Frank Cho (Diamond Code OCT140605), Cover C by Ray Fawkes (Diamond Code OCT140606) and Cover D by John Workman (Diamond Code OCT140607).
