Voici la couverture de Emma Rios pour Shutter #1:
[quote=“Joe Keatinge”]The fine folks over at Comic Book Resources debuted our second variant cover for SHUTTER #1, this time by the incredible artist and co-creator of the Image Comics published supernatural western PRETTY DEADLY, Emma Ríos aka steinerfrommars.
If you’d like to ensure your copy of Emma’s cover on April 9th, you may do so by downloading the linked PDF here and presenting it to your retailer, but please do so soon as the Final Order Cutoff is this coming Monday!
Enough about pre-orders. Like last time, I’d rather take this opportunity to discuss the brilliant artist responsible for this cover.
Emma’s someone whose work I’ve admired for a while now. As I recall, the first time I saw her work was on the BOOM! Studios series Hexed and immediately made a note to keep up with her work. I wasn’t disappointed.
My favorite artists in any medium are the ones who never get stagnate, who continually evolve with every new project, who approach each one in a new and different way. The most famous example of this in comics is the dual life of Jean Giraud/Moebius. One of the more recent examples in comics is Emma.
From Hexed to Marvel’s Osborn and Doctor Strange: Season One to the more recent (and my personal favorite) Pretty Deadly, Emma’s continual artistic evolution has been as enthralling as her comics. I find it interesting how her own personal DNA remains constant in all of these works. This cover is contemporary of Pretty Deadly and you can see Emma drew it, yet she went for something completely different. There’s shades of Eurocomics, there’s some manga. Parts of it reminds me of that old Konami game Policenauts while looking nothing like it.
I just love how the cords hang in zero gravity, it makes it seem more like you’re seeing this through a window than a static image. The characters seem like people you know, maybe it’s the tilt of Chris’ head or how enthralled young Kate is with her DS. It’s all really damn impressive.
This isn’t a totally random scene. In fact, it’s related to the opening of SHUTTER #1. You’ll see more soon, as I’m about halfway sure those pages will be used as the preview Image puts out the week of release.
In any case, my big point is to give a huge public thank you to Emma for doing up this brilliant piece for the variant. It’s absolutely beautiful and we’re lucky to have her.
