As Megan, the soul that Shade displaced, gets farther and farther away from Earth, Shade is starting to find things about her new planet and her new body that she really likes. For instance, there's music. And also boys. Not to mention would-be friends and her new parents. This feeling of peace keeps the madness in check - but only temporarily. There is still the matter of that terrible night that put Megan in a coma to begin with.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manny Gomez Jan 6, 2017

    Admittingly this may be the least accessible book from Young Animal, but I would not let that keep you away. Its a strange, challenging and unique book. But it is a comic well worth reading and giving a chance. It reminds me of the kind of books Vertigo released in its early days, which of course led to a revolution in the industry. I have a feeling the same is being done here. Read Full Review

    Shade, the Changing Girl continues to impress with its fourth issue. The writing is poetic, the art evocative, and to top it off the second feature is fantastic. Read Full Review

    Outside of the thematic relationship to the main story there's not a lot here and it didn't have the fun nostalgic quality of some of the other back ups. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Jan 4, 2017

    Another great installment of Shade the Changing Girl.  Things are coming to a head, and this chapter's cliffhanger leaves me begging for more.  The writing and art meld together in a nearly perfect marriage of psychedelic wonderment.   Read Full Review

    I hope you didn't give up on this series. Sure, it's not as flashy as Doom Patrol, but it is a gem in the DC line of books. If it continues at this pace, it might just end up being one of their best period. For now, this is an issue worth reading if only to see the destruction in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 4, 2017

    Marley Zarcone does some very nice work with the art, and I quite liked how the Meta-spots wind up resembling vinyl albums in the one panel that features the girl's turntable. Im just not certain how many more issues I will enjoy. Read Full Review
