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.How crazy awesome is this?? Dustin blew me away with this cover. His work is unbelievably brilliant and I’m so honored that he did a variant cover for Shutter #1. So damn great. Also, check out the link Joe posted to learn more about Dustin Weaver! Also, also, cut-off date for Shutter #1 pre-orders is March 17th, for all you who have been meaning to order it.
Curious about the brown. Why a different color? Battling Boy original art (detail, behind glass), Society of Illustrators NYC. Paul Pope. 2013.
Here’s my 31 Days of Hellboy piece i did to celebrate the 20 years of Mike Mignola's creation.Can you find what future events and friends lil’ Hellboy is drawing?
Sergeant Stubby, so named for his lack of a tail, was a stray pitbull found wandering Yale campus by some soldiers there during drill.
"He learned the bugle calls, the drills, and even a modified dog salute as he put his right paw on his right eyebrow when a salute was executed by his fellow soldiers."
He was smuggled into WW1 by a soldier, and allowed to stay when he saluted the man who would later become his commanding officer.
He was sent to the trenches where he was under constant enemy fire for over a month. He was wounded in the leg by a German hand grenade, sent to a hospital to convalesce, then returned to the front lines…
After being wounded in a gas attack, Stubby developed such a sensitivity that he would run and bark and alert the other soldiers of incoming gas attacks AND artillery attacks precious seconds before they occurred, saving countless lives. A canine early warming system.
He would go into no man’s land, find wounded men, shouting in English, And stay with them, barking, until medics arrived.
He once captured a German spy.
The spy, mapping out Allied trenches, tried to call to Stubby, but Stubby got aggressive and then chased down and attacked the spy when he attempted to flee, allowing Allied soldiers to capture him.
For this he was awarded the rank of Sergeant- the first dog to do so.
After helping the Allies retake Château-Thierry in France, Sergeant Stubby was sewn a uniform by the women of the town, on which to wear his many medals.
He went on to meet multiple Presidents, dignitaries and ambassadors and become the mascot of Georgetown University football.
There is nothing about this that is not magical.
Always reblog Sgt Stubby.
The full lineup, now with Poison Ivy and Supergirl! Sorry for the slight repost, I think seeing them together makes the overall unifying design elements clearer (like the weird 90’s vibe haha).

Inspired by The Female Armor Bingo, I present to you my short guide to armor bust areas, to better help you decide what to wear :P
Any resemblance to particular armors, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Well… mostly.
So glad my bingo game caught on and inspired you! Amazing job!
This is so awesome, reminds me of Tica’s breakdown of the most typical MMORPG costumes on repair-her-armor. Always great to have more guides through stupid design tropes for future reference!
If you’re going to continue this into a series, please link all the following parts once they’re done (guessing the butt area would be next to go ;P)!
