Next week marks the release of the first outing of the Gerard Way-curated Young Animal “pop-up imprint” from DC Comics: the newly revamped Doom Patrol.
While anticipation is high for that new series, right around the corner is the second, the relaunch of Shade, The Changing Man entitled Shade, The Changing Girl by Cecil Castellucci, Marley Zarcone, and Kelly Fitzpatrick, which releases on October 5th.
Check out the preview pages below for sneak peek of what to expect from this new iteration of Steve Ditko’s classic concept, along with some lovely variant covers by Duncan Fegredo and Tula Lotay. Additionally, this issue will feature a back-up by Gilbert and Natalia Hernandez, the latter of which will be penciling as well.
Also through this weekend, Comixology is running a sale on all issues of the Morrison/Case Doom Patrol and the Milligan/Bachalo (along with Phillips and Case) Shade, The Changing Man. I just dropped about 70 bucks on the whole run of Shade since it was my one big pre-Vertigo blind-spot.
