Shade, the Changing Girl #3 (EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW)

Trying to settle into her new life as an Earth girl, Shade finds the body she has taken over doesn’t have the same skills as it did when its previous inhabitant was in charge. It’s bad enough that her swim team hates her, but now she can’t perform in the water at all. Can Shade find anyone she can trust to give her guidance before the madness takes over and exposes her as an alien to the entire school?

This issue features a variant cover by Paul Rentler that combines with this month’s other variant covers from DC’S Young Animal to form a single image.

Here’s what Cecil Castellucci, writer for Shade, the Changing Girl, had to say about the book: “The fact is that navigating a human body is awkward and our girl Loma Shade is brimming with emotions that she can’t quite control as the madness in her grows ever stronger. With the help of her River, her neighbor / reluctant pal, she begins to take in how truly terrible her “host” body Megan was. Meanwhile, on the other side of the galaxy, there is an awakening of a sort that is happening, both on Meta and between the stars.

“What I love about this issue (and well, all of them) is how fluid Shade moves into madness. Marley’s interpretation of delving into ones own mind and Shade’s crawling around trying to figure out what the heck is going on, slays me every time. Shade crawling into her own mouth! It gives me chills! And Kelly’s colors are just mind blowing. I also love, love, love that we get to see a hint of Shade’s favorite old time-y TV show Life With Honey. Think I Love Lucy with atomic bombs.”

Shade, the Changing Girl #3 is available in stores December 7th, 2016.  Enjoy this exclusive preview!
