Shade goes to Hollywood! Following her adventures in New Mexico, our girl heads to Tinseltown on her search to find the actress who played Honey in her favorite Earth TV show. What she finds is a woman who is older than the one she saw on the black-and-white broadcast, but also one whose years and experience will teach her more than Shade could ever expect.

    It's a series about love and life and death and how all of its the same and this issue, more than any, encapsulates that. Read Full Review

    On the surface this appears to be a light comic but if you take a chance and scratch it, you will uncover deeper emotions and a reflection of what it is to be human. Read Full Review

    Shade the Changing Girl continues to be one of the most unique comics on the market. It approaches things differently and relies on real life more than fantastical trappings to engage the reader. Even if you've never read an issue, it's easy to get hooked on an issue like this one. Read Full Review

    More fun is added to the issue with a couple of pages of cut outs, for dressing up Shade and Honey. Not that I would ever actually cut apart a comic book. But I still very much enjoy the concept, and its execution. Read Full Review

    Everything is coming together, the stakes are higher than ever, and it feels like we're on the cusp of a resolution.  Another excellent, if bittersweet outing for Shade and the gang! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 2, 2017

    Shade #11 pays homage to the world of the silver screen as well as life and death in a visceral way thanks to a double page spread where artist Marley Zarcone and colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick shows Shade forcibly breathing life back into Honey Rich. Cecil Castellucci's writing is as thoughtful as ever, and I am still beaming at her extremely clever use of "changing girl" when Honey and Shade go out on the town one last time. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be outstanding, as Shade leads us to reflect upon life, love, death. This issue packs quite a surprise, and moving exploration of a life that has reached its end. The extra "Life With Honey" piece at the end is charming and adds to the book. There's nothing else quite like this out there.
