Shade, the Changing Man: The American Scream SC

SHADE, THE CHANGING MAN: THE AMERICAN SCREAM SC – (Peter Milligan/Chris Bachalo/Mark Pennington) Collecting the first six issues of one of Vertigo’s founding titles. 23-year-old Kathy George relives the horror of her parents’ deaths. Hoping for a reprieve from the constant nightmares and the ever-present threat of insanity that have hounded her since their deaths, Kathy instead is swept up in Shade's arrival from his home dimension, Meta, into the body of the serial killer who destroyed her life. From there, Kathy and Shade begin a journey into America's collective unconscious as they combat the malevolent force known only as The American Scream.168 pp. MR. This is one of my favorite Vertigo series and I’m delighted that it’s finally being collected. This early work by Milligan and Bachalo is essential for any fan of their more recent work. Get ready for a mind-blowing adventure. (Roger A.)
