    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jan 13, 2015

    Brilliant as always, this series is the epitome of creator owned. When you create your own story, you can do whatever you want. No rules. Just imagination and great storytelling. Read Full Review

    This would be a very ominous ending, but instead ‘Shutter' ends a slightly more pleasant note. The chapter closes with Christopher looking for a head for Alarm cat, and ends up crudely drawing a face on a burlap sack. Alarm Cat declares it “absolutely” perfect, and falls into Christopher's arms in a poignant moment that shows that no matter how crazy the world of ‘Shutter' gets, the writing of Joe Keeating in combination with the art of Leila Del Lucyalways knows how to get you emotionally involved.

    Comic Booked - Magen Cubed Jan 15, 2015

    Just as the rest of this eclectic cast of pastiches and oddities, Alarm Cat proves to be more than what he appears. Keatinge and Del Ducas knack for measured, understated storytelling continues to be this titles best feature. While slow to gain to momentum, their richly detailed storybook world is worth exploring as it grows darker and darker with every twist and turn, revealing more of its depths without giving everything away. Keatinges restrained scripting works well here, and Del Ducas artwork with Owen Gienis color palettes are an absolutely winning combination, making this a great issue from the first page to the last.

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jan 16, 2015

    As this issue ends, we are left with yet another cliffhanger not knowing what will happen. The only thing for sure is that we will receive more interesting art from del Duca, more trippy dialogue from Keatinge, and more serious entertainment from this Shutter title. I'm loving it guys. You are on a roll. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 15, 2015

    Issue #8 is full of big ideas, fantastic art and eclectic characters, but the continued insistence on going bigger and badder with each new installment again wears thin. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 13, 2015

    Shutter #8 was another okay issue. Unfortunately, the pacing and momentum are really starting to slow down. The only character who we do learn about or get a bigger understanding of isn't exactly trustworthy and any attempt trying to make her be sympathetic never feels believable. Hopefully the next issue can get this comic back on track. Read Full Review
