is not only the name of a cute, insatiably curious red-haired girl, but also the name of a new cartoon strip now available to weekly newspapers.

The first story (Shutterbug Follies) introduces the exploits of plucky Bee. She works as a photo-finishing technician at Mulberry Photo, where all manner of creeps, criminals, and cranks bring her their film for processing. Bee's habit of duplicating titillating photos for her own collection takes a grim turn when corpses start popping up in the pictures. Her curiosity gets the better of her and she finds herself shadowing a mysterious foreign photographer into a diabolical trap.

Shutterbug Follies will be collected in a full-color hardcover to be published by Doubleday in September of 2002.
