    There is a lot of conflict building in SHADE, THE CHANGING WOMAN #5, as this team works toward the conclusion of this series. There's a huge character reveal, surrounded by a plot that will keep you on edge with the turn of every page. The entire art team shines in this issue, but the coloring and lettering deserve special nods. Read Full Review

    This is the second to last issue of this book. I'm sorry to see it go away. I hope this creative team shows up on another book or graphic novel soon. This has been one of the best reads of the past two years. Read Full Review

    I struggle to see how Castellucci is going to wrap this all up in only one more issue, but it's been a hell of a ride so far. Read Full Review

    Somehow this book manages to feel both extremely rushed... while at the same taking forever to get to the point.  The issue, like the series as a whole only seems to shine when our main character is off-panel. Read Full Review
