Part of Gerard Way's new imprint, DC's Young Animal! Far
away on the planet Meta, Loma's going nowhere fast. She's dropped out of school,
dumped her boyfriend and is bored out of her mind. She longs to feel things.
That's where her idol, the lunatic poet Rac Shade, and his infamous madness coat
come in. Loma steals the garment and makes a break across galaxies to take up
residence in a new body: Earth girl Megan Boyer. Surely everything will be
better on this passionate, primitive planet with a dash of madness on her side
and this human girl's easy life. Only now that she's here, Loma discovers being
a teenaged Earth girl comes with its own challenges and Earth may not be
everything she thought it'd be. Megan Boyer was a bully who everyone was glad
was almost dead, and now Loma has to survive high school and navigate the
consequences of the life she didn't live with the ever-growing and
uncontrollable madness at her side. Not to mention that there are people back on
her homeworld who might just want Shade's coat back. Written by Cecil
Castellucci (The Plain Janes), drawn by Marley Zarcone (EFFIGY) and overseen by
Gerard Way, SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL starts a whole new chapter in the story of
one of comics' most unique series. Collects SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL #1-6.
SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL is a part of DC's Young Animal--a four-book grassroots
mature-reader imprint, creatively spearheaded by Gerard Way, bridging the gap
between the DC Universe and Vertigo, and focusing on the juxtaposition between
visual and thematic storytelling.

Review quote

"Writer Cecil Castellucci's extensive work exploring female adolescence in both prose and comics makes her particularly well suited for this new interpretation of Shade, but... she's also fully embracing the peculiarity of the concept and the vast storytelling opportunities it creates."--A.V. CLUB/THE ONION "Shade, The Changing Girl is categorically a visual experience articulated through words, pictures and color."--PASTE MAGAZINE "Artist Marley Zarcone has drawn each panel with vivid chaos and intense care. Zarcone's stark linework, youthful style and well-placed negative space capture the spirit of this book impeccably." --NEWSARAMA "The book has such a pronounced sense of style. Marley Zarcone's figures are elegant, but her work truly shines when it comes to giving visual representation to the madness within Loma's mind." --IGN
