Summary
  • An African American teenage girl in a future dystopia mutates into a manga-style creature, becomes a superhero, and ends up rescuing a young girl from a zombie. The plot touches on many teen-relevant issues, such as politics, friendship, adolescence, responsibility, and loneliness. Featuring a predominantly female African American cast and, with surprisingly comfortable ease, a transsexual character as well. The significance of that would be empty, of course, without the weight and believability of the story's characters and relationships, and the heart-tugging emotions they sometimes produce. The dialog is sharp and rhythmic and the art balances a sleek manga technique, credible future looks and grunge fashions
  • "In the futuristic dystopian city of Dranac, moody teenager Scout Montana is an aspiring vigilante, but her first attempt to beat up a mugger is halted when she's hit in the head with a brick and knocked unconscious. When she awakens, she discovers that she's able to transform into a strange, blue, clawed, superhuman creature. In this new body she becomes the vigilante Shadoweyes, and soon finds she's unable to return to her human form, forced into a homeless superheroic life on the streets by her inhuman appearance, forced outside of society yet still bound to it. Helping people wherever she can becomes the only activity available to her, and she struggles with figuring out how to deal with aggressors and their victims" -- from publisher's web site
