    Like all of the issues prior, some big bombs are occurring that leaves the reader guessing. I think the one in this particular issue might just be the best and biggest to date that may just change the whole direction of the story. Whatever is about to occur, I know that am ready to get back in line and ride it again. Read Full Review

    The ending of this issue is heartbreaking and heroic all at once. So, Shutterites (I guess that's what I'm going to call you), go get this and keep enjoying one of the most original comics out there. Read Full Review

    More than anything this issue is the real beginning of Kates adventure. Shes taken charge of her own destiny, no more being strung along by others to serve their own ends. Shes seeking answers for herself, under her own initiative. I thought I was excited for this issue but now I know thats nothing in comparison to my elation for “Shutter” #6. It seems like this happens with every issue and may it never end. Read Full Review

    With the initial expository action out of the way, Keatinge and del Duca can devote more of their skills to characterization and plot structure in "Shutter" #5. The first few issues were beautiful and distinctive, but with "Shutter" #5, the series turns a major corner successfully, sinking its hooks deeper into the reader and becoming an exceptional read.

    By far the best issue, and so zany I can't even begin to guess where it's going next. I suppose that's why I like it so much. Read Full Review

    Its been a while coming, but this series is finally getting to the crux of the matter, and its become clear that the first arc is laying foundations for future stories to come, with Kates accepted role in the adventuring being reversed going forward. The title of the piece still doesnt make much sense " to me, at least; shes not taken that many photos " but hey-ho, thats a minor nit-pick at best. If youve not gotten on this series, nows the time.

    Del Duca's artwork is expressive and energetic, aided by some striking colorwork by Owen Gieni. Read Full Review
