Grimlock ♥ Ultra Magnus

I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

This is really weird

Shade, The Changing Girl (2016-) #1 - Cecil Castellucci, Gilbert Hernandez, Gilbert Hernandez, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Laura Allred, Becky Cloonan, Marley Zarcone

Loma, an alien girl who has problems of her own - not really fitting in, idolizing an out of style poet who went mad, a boyfriend she doesn't really seem to be in love with, and an inability to really feel - wants more.   She uses this Madness Vest (maybe the same one as the original Shade used, maybe not?) to slip into the body of a human girl, Megan, who's brain dead.  

 

Except that she doesn't realize that Megan was a bully who terrorized her friends, and even her parents.   Everyone was hoping she would die, if only so that they wouldn't have to live under her rule of thumb anymore. 

 

So when she wakes up, she doesn't realize everyone is acting oddly, and wouldn't know why even if she did know.   Loma is simply trying to experience something different while staying one step ahead of the madness.

 

It's fascinating, and speaks to how a girl might not quite fit into the world she once conquered so easily.   It's also not for kids, but well worth reading for a teenager, or an adult.   

 

So far, I want to know more about both Loma and Megan.
