Shade has a new body that's all her own, but does that mean she also requires a new life, one of her making, as well? River, Teacup and the rest of the Valley Ville crew have moved on, and so must she. But creating a life from scratch isn't as easy as getting a new body, especially when all you have is the memory of what you had.

    This issue is another standout from Castellucci, Zarcone, Parks and Fitzpatrick. Shade, the Changing Woman #2 is not only representative of the series, it is also the first among equals. It is as good as the best we've seen in the series (Shade the Changing Girl included, of course!) We all learn what it's like to be human as we grow and mature, it's not often we get to experience someone else's journey so intimately. Read Full Review

    SHADE, THE CHANGING WOMAN #2 is full of emotion and self-reflection, and it's beautiful to behold. It discusses time, interpersonal relationships, and the importance of the heart in a way that enhances the characters and how they relate to each other. The art is stunning, as it always is in this series. Yet the imagery in this issue takes it to a whole new level. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Apr 4, 2018

    More a collection of psychedelic collages rather than a comic book... and while that isn't a bad thing, it is rather grating, a hair too cute, and wears out its welcome before we hit the staples. Read Full Review
