Everything drowns. Some patients can't be saved.
What if the hardest thing you ever had to do was to look yourself in the eyes?
This is where it ends.

    "Change" #4 is a brilliant conclusion that stays true to the avant-garde way the story has been told to this point, but ends with terrific poignancy. "Change" understands that we have the capacity to be emotionally complex people and that that is a fact that can torment and haunt us, whether you're in the business of being a creative person or just a person wrapped up in the give and take that being in love demands. Kot, Jeske, Leong, and Brisson turn a daunting sci-fi horror story into a story of personal desperation and acceptance in a visual way that only comic books can get away with. As such, "Change" will be a formidable candidate for best miniseries of the year. Not only does it command a re-reading immediately after its 4th issue, but it will be worth returning to over and over again to uncover even more of its treasures. Read Full Review

    Dense, dynamic, and actually innovative. Ales Kot is the writer to watch in 2013. Read Full Review

    Change #4 continued with the way the story has been told and doesn't attempt to guide readers by the hand. It is a very beautiful and poetic ending to what seemed like an abstract story. If readers really invest in this story they will be very satisfied, but readers looking for another easy read that takes you from one story to the next might be a bit thrown off. All in all, this issue rounded of something incredibly special, a story that elevated beyond the typical comic book Read Full Review

    Change will inevitably work better non-episodically in trade format, and I definitely plan on reading it again as such, but for now, Kot and Jeske's journey has been, often despite itself, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Sandy Mar 12, 2013

    This series is definitely not for everyone. It's something you pick up, read and understand immediately though your own interpretation despite its difficult nature. I'll leave you with a sample of this tale to give you a taste of what it offers. I took these sentences initially as positive, but when I went back and reread them, they became pessimistic: “Nothing is too beautiful to happen. Nothing is too good to last.” Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Andrew Taylor Mar 19, 2013

    I have to admit: I'm torn about Change. On the one hand, it is the sort of comic I wish I could get my hands on more often: goofy, horrific, willing to throw anything and everything at the wall just to see what would stick. On the other"well"it's nonsensical crap. Not a very 'critic' sentence to write, but that is what it is. So much of it is dedicated to its gleeful attempt to mindscrew readers that it never becomes about anything else, despite what a final, emotional plea over a white background would have you believe.

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Mar 13, 2013

    This is the kind of book I want to write a much longer review about, about how it got everything so wrong. So, although it wildly missed its target, I still respect Change for trying to not be the same as everything else out there. Even though it wound up being almost embarrassingly lousy.
