- As the Kristopher family prepares to take on Prospero, Kate and her siblings finally get some answers about their father’s past.
- These answers do more than just fill in the blanks, though: they paint him as well-intended but flawed—more human than his kids’ idea of him would allow otherwise.
- Keatinge covers less ground in the present than in previous arcs; much of “All Roads” feels like the quiet before the storm—which makes sense, since it’s also the end of Shutter’s second act.
- The real stars of this volume are its art team: Del Duca, and Gieni switch between multiple visual styles for the present and different characters’ flashbacks with enough variety that I had to double-check whether there was a second, guest art team at work.
- Shutter, Vol. 4: All Roads (#18-22)
