- Kate finds herself ensconced in labyrinthine Venice, a living metaphor for her own memory loss and struggles to reclaim her past.
- What she does recall is that she is tired of the constant parade of family secrets ruining her life.
- So when another one of those secrets shows up to suprise her and save her life, she goes all in to take the fight to anyone who messes with her.
- And speaking of fights, Cassius and friends stage Chris’s rescue from a Kamandi-esque city of lion people.
- Keatinge manages to make Shutter’s world at once feel progressively larger and more personal.
- Del Duca and Gieni’s art remains stylish and cool, with a trippy sequence involving peyote and significant amounts of fourth wall-breaking standing out as the coolest of cool moments.
Shutter is a fun, over-the-top adventure comic with personal stakes, and it’s well worth checking out.
- Shutter, Vol. 3: Quo Vadis (#13-17)
