Press Release: Milestone SHUTTER Issue Features Rare Crossovers of Legendary Image Characters


MILESTONE SHUTTER ISSUE FEATURES 
RARE CROSSOVER OF LEGENDARY 
IMAGE CHARACTERS

25th anniversary event hits popular creator-owned storyline by 
Keatinge and del Duca


Critically-acclaimed ongoing series SHUTTER by Joe Keatinge and Leila del Duca will feature a rare crossover event to incorporate legendary Image Comics characters from the classic series SPAWN, created by Todd McFarlane; GLORY, created by Rob Liefeld; WITCHBLADE, created by Marc Silvestri, editor David Wohl, writer Brian Haberlin, and artist Michael Turner; SAVAGE DRAGON, created by Erik Larsen; INVINCIBLE, created by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker; and SHADOWHAWK, created by Jim Valentino.

SHUTTER #25 is a landmark issue for the popular pandimensional adventure series, but it will also celebrate Image Comics’ 25th anniversary with this exceptional moment in Image Comics history.

“Image Comics is why I write comics,” said Keatinge. “After a lot of soul-searching, I felt the best way to express my gratitude on the Image partners' momentous anniversary is to unite our characters over eating eggs and drinking mimosas.”

“It's been a dream come true, drawing characters that were created and brought to life by the Image founders,” said del Duca. “SHUTTER may not have existed if it weren't for those seven men who left work-for-hire comics to make creator-owned stories. I loved spending time with their characters, incorporating them into our storyline, and having them interact with our own characters, Kate, Alain, and Alarm Cat. I had so much fun!”

Fans dare not miss the terrifying biscuits-and-gravy secret no one will see coming in SHUTTER #25. Here, SHUTTER will kick off 2017 with these founding heroes meeting up with the cast of SHUTTER’s beloved character ensemble for what may prove to be one of their most delicious adventures yet.

“The SHUTTER team found a great way to celebrate the history of Image Comics—and the universal love of two of the most important meals EVER combined into the best meal (Eat it, Dinner)!” added Brandon Graham (KING CITY, PROPHET), artist of SHUTTER #25’s special variant cover.

THE BELFRY: ASCEND AT YOUR OWN RISK

All-new horror one-shot from Gabriel Hardman coming this February


From Logan storyboard artist and Hugo Award-nominated writer/artist Gabriel Hardman (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC, KINSKI, Star Wars Legacy) comes THE BELFRY, a self-contained one-shot that may just strip you of your humanity.

When an airliner crashes in a remote jungle, everyone walks away unscathed—only to find they can’t escape the lush, brutal world of THE BELFRY.

"This is my dark trip into a world that's a little surreal, a little nihilistic, and all terrifying,” said Hardman. “I wanted to flex some different storytelling muscles, and that led me down the road to eye-gouging violence and naked bat people. But there's beauty as well in the lush art style I've adopted for this story. And naked bat people."

THE BELFRY (ONE-SHOT) (Diamond code: DEC160668) hits comic book stores Wednesday, February 22nd. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 30th.
