    Shutter is not mainstream, but it is. It is the "cool" kid that can get away with wearing anything and still be cool. It simply has something that makes it pop with each successive issue. Things are getting tense and answers are beginning to trickle in. I am looking forward to reading every bold, detailed, complex, and thorough element presented as it comes through. Read Full Review

    Kate says she wants to live a “normal” life with a “normal” job, but her face when she fought ninjas in the first issue revealed a girl who never really left the high-flying life behind. If it takes a surprise band of siblings to get her back to the life she once knew, well, so be it. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jul 8, 2014

    There's a beautiful couple of pages that show Kate and her father, in the past, acting out their scenes alongside the present Kate and Harrington speaking on it. Along with that, and the amazing backstory for Harrington, you are constantly reminded of why this series is so special. No one working on this story is phoning it in and you can feel the love for the subject as it pours from the writing and artwork. Read Full Review

    Shutter starts heading in the right direction as though the inconsistent tone's slightly worrying the quality remains their. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Jul 10, 2014

    “Shutter” #4 continues Keatinge and del Duca's visually moving look at nostalgia and a loss of innocence. It's a decidedly grown-up look at the difference between childhood as you experienced it then, and how you remember it now. Those elements are packaged and delivered in the spirit of something resembling an antique anthropomorphic curiosity shop. “Shutter” errs on the side of non-specificity, but with enough heart and storytelling prowess you don't need to know all the rules – now or ever, really.

    "Shutter" #4 is a little uneven, but the gemlike opening and del Duca's art are more than enough to outweigh the slow pacing. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier Jul 9, 2014

    Sequences in this book may appear to be non sequiturs, however there is a bigger picture being slowly revealed in each entertaininginstallment. And this issue is equally entertaining as the three that preceded it. The strange and wondrous world of Keatinge and del Ducas Shutter continues to fascinate with new revelations which helps keep the page turning momentum going. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Jul 8, 2014

    I love the ideas being flung around in this book, I really do – I just wish that the story would come together from the disparate array of narrative threads weve been presented with so far, and theyre so close. One more issue. I can feel it. If next months score isnt 4 or 5, fully worthy of your attention, Ill eat my hat. Read Full Review
