  7. The Mary Sue Reviews and Interviews: Leila del Duca, Creator of Shutter

    Interview

    Shutter starts out with an innocuous enough backstory. Well, it even starts out with me looking at our proto-protagonist Kate Kristopher and thinking "You're wrong, kid. So wrong."

Image titles like The Walking Dead, Saga, and Pretty Deadly have gotten their attention, but Wayne Wise reports that at Phantom of the Attic there are "a lot of young women who are really invested in Marvel and DC titles, as well as the Indies. New titles aimed at this group are an important part of this. Books like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Young Avengers have been particularly successful.'
