Writer Joe Keatinge first got our attention with his experimental sci-fi adventure Glory. Today he writes Shutter in addition to his new pro wrestling personal drama Ringside.
Artist Leila del Duca became a household name with Shutter, but she’s also known for the indie superhero hit The Pantheon Project, as well as the just-announced young adult graphic novel Afar. She might be familiar to many of you as the guest artist on The Wicked + the Divine #16–the juicy issue about the Morrigan!
