Shutter #1 – It’s All Perspective, Poppet
I remember when Shutter was announced for the first time. I was sitting first row in the Novellus Theater of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts during Image Comics’ 3rd annual Image Expo. I was clutching my camera, taking shots here and there, and writing notes hurriedly when Joe Keatinge came out to make the announcement. I was excited for an Image book that seemed to center around a photographer, which has been a hobby and passion of mine since I was a small child. It’s always dangerous to get your hopes up about a potential new comic when you have personal investment in the subject matter. I recall all I was thinking was, “please don’t suck.” It doesn’t. Far from it, in fact.
