Shutterbug Follies HC (2002) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by Jason Little. Bee, a plucky and insatiable curious young woman, works as photo finishing technician in a one-hour lab in lower Manhattan. To amuse herself, she duplicates (for her own collection) any titillating photos that happen to pass through her hands. When pictures of a naked corpse are left for processing, Bee's interest is piqued. She learns that the photographs were taken by a prominent crime photographer, Oleg Khatchatourian, who specializes in arriving first at scenes of especially gruesome crimes. When Bee tails Khatchatourian and a few of his Russian compatriots, she overhears the sounds of gangland-style interrogation and realizes after narrowly escaping with her anonymity (and life) in tact, that she's up to her heck in trouble. Hardcover (Horizontal Format), 9 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 208 pages, full color. MATURE READERS Cover price $24.95.
