“INDIANA JONES FOR THE 21st CENTURY! Marvel Knights: Hulk and Glory writer Joe Keatinge teams up with artist extraordinaire Leila del Duca for her Image Comics debut in an all-new ongoing series combining the urban fantasy of Fables and the globe-spanning adventure of Y: The Last Man. Kate Kristopher, once the most famous explorer of an Earth far more fantastic than the one we know, is forced to return to the adventurous life she left behind when a family secret threatens to destroy everything she spent her life protecting. Collects Shutter #1-6.”
I have had this book on my wishlist for quite a while and was excited to finally read it. This was a fun adventure fantasy that I enjoyed a lot. I would recommend for young adult and older mainly because of violence and language.
I liked Kate Kristopher and her Alarm Cat; they were a lot of fun to read about. There’s a lot of action in here and an amazingly creative world full of quirky characters. The book was very engaging and I ended up enjoying it a lot.
The illustration is beautifully done with nice color and good detail. The action scenes were easy to follow and fun to look at.
Overall I really enjoyed this adventure fantasy graphic novel. I would recommend to those who love fast-paced and creative fantasy graphic novels. I plan on continuing the series!
