Nice strip in this year's Indy comix issue!  I was hoping you would do one this year even after the move... I really dug it!

Happened upon Shutter Volume One at my local comics store, and I was instantly hooked.

Absolutely stunning artwork, and a joy to read.

Looking forward to Volume Two!

Just read Shutter No. 1 -- Great stuff, looks like i'll be picking this up again. I've been looking for a long time for something to get into. Many, many books. This one is really sweet looking. I love the art in this book! :)
