Jen and Jack have begun their first tentative steps towards an actual romantic relationship, after months of will-they-won’t-they teasing. Jen has her hands full in other ways, however with a confused Doombot that’s landed itself in hot water. There’s also the matter of the mysterious, super strong individual who recently attacked Jack – which Jen is keen to get to the bottom of.

Rainbow Rowell’s She-Hulk was, I believe, initially supposed to be as a five issue miniseries, but clearly it’s continued way past that point.

Which is great, especially as the deliberate pacing didn’t seem to be moving at a speed that’d satisfactorily wrap up the series by the end of the fifth issue.

With that breathing space afforded to the more leisurely paced story, it’s a much more satisfying affair as a result.

This issue’s opening scene is a wonderful thing, too; showcasing Rowell’s adept handling of two sweet characters who absolutely deserve both happiness and each other. It’s genuinely lovely, heartwarming stuff.

The Doombot subplot is great too; genuinely amusing and steeped in relatively recent Marvel continuity, yet remaining just as accessible as the rest of the series has been so far.

Luca Maresca’s art is wonderful too, with a great clarity in storytelling and beautifully rendered characters. Rico Renzi’s colours make Maresca’s art absolutely pop too.

So far, Rowell’s She-Hulk series has been an absolute joy, though this issue does conclude with a worrying cliffhanger for our big green lawyer…
