Shade the Changing Girl #7

Welcome Marge Sausage! At least now this comic book I don't really understand will look good!

The Review!
I read this comic book. Now I have acknowledged reading this comic book in a public space. I'm not sure I'm going to continue reading this comic book. It feels like it's trying to identify with young people but it doesn't dare say anything more than "We are all alone and desperately trying to survive a social landscape we had no say in but now must deal with to the best of our ability!" I might be giving it too much credit. It might just be trying to identify with young people in vague and shallow ways that don't really matter in the existential nightmare of our reality. Things like young people being mean to each other. And things like young people being attracted to other young people in expected and unexpected ways. And young people conflicting with parents and other adult authority figures. And young people betraying each other's trust due to social pressures and naive innocence. I suppose those things matter but they'll only matter for a short time. Eventually you get old enough to just keep the few friends who are entertaining and not particularly needy so that you can sink into the indulgence of all of your own personal desires. In other words, just like the end of this issue, you ultimately run from the school dance saying "Fuck this shit."

The Ranking!
No change!
