Dustin Weaver’s variant for SHUTTER #1 has gone public thanks to those folks at Bleeding Cool and there’s still time to make sure you get a copy. Here’s a link to a hi-res PDF of the pre-order to print out and take to your local comic book shop so they can get it in by the deadline of MARCH 17th (in stores April 9th!). Emma Rios and Brandon Graham’s covers will be out on other websites short.
Here’s a link to talking more about SHUTTER and the pre-order process, but I’d rather use this post to sing dustinweaver's praises.
Dustin’s an artist whose work I’ve been digging for a long time. He’s a guy whose influences seem to be every thing I am super into — folks like Moebius, Katsuhiro Otomo and Hayao Miyazaki — yet takes all these and has formed something entirely his own. It’s amazing to see what he’s done on AVENGERS and INFINITY. but I highly, highly suggest his web comic, amniacycle. Here’s his Tumblr. Here’s his blog with in-depth career history, exclusive glimpses into what he’s working on. And here’s a link to Amnia Cycle. I suggest you dive deep into all this.
A major huge public thanks for Dustin contributing this awesome SHUTTER cover. He chose to focus on a flashback from issue #1, which is actually a really damn essential part of the larger SHUTTER lore we won’t even be getting into for a while now, so it’s way cool he did this.
So, yeah. Dustin Weaver. That guy rules. So does Emma and Brandon. Looking forward to showing off their fine work soon.
Aw shucks, Joe.
I was honored that Joe asked me to do this variant cover for SHUTTER #1. I mean just look at the talent he’s got lined up for the other variants. Brandon Graham and Emma Rios! Along with Joe and Leila, it’s some great company.
As for the cover itself… I wanted to throw out the formulas of composition… That isn’t what I did, but I did challenge myself… Also, anytime I get to color my own work I have so much fun. This was a lot of fun!
And PRE-ORDER THE BOOK!
