Blindsided by a big, strong dude who has specifically set his sights on Jack of Hearts, Jennifer Walters tries to save her friend, with mixed results. Just who is this hulking brute though? And what’s his interest in Jack?
Though initially set to be a five issue miniseries, She-Hulk seems to have got itself at least one more issue added to its run. Which is fortunate, because – despite a big, extended fight scene – the story of She-Hulk just doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to go anywhere fast.
The character work and more sedate scenes are fantastic, but the fight scene – and its weird resolution – isn’t very well done at all, certainly from a writing point of view. Rainbow Rowell excels at the cosy, more intimate dialogue – but has struggled with the action from day one. In many ways, it’s a real shame that the superheroics even have to feature – this comic has always been incredibly strong when it’s just focused on Jennifer Walters and the people around her going about their everyday lives, or – in the case of Jack of Hearts – rediscovering themselves.
That fight scene resolution also factors into the weirdly out-of-leftfield cliffhanger too, which is just completely bizarre. There’s time for She-Hulk to make this extra mystery work, but as it stands right now it’s completely unsatisfying.
