Rainbow Rowell’s She-Hulk series continues, with Jennifer Walters (aka the titular green giant) experiencing the pain of heartbreak once more. The bad guys who’ve caused her so much grief, April and Mark Booth, are nowhere to be found. What’s Jen to do with her broken heart?

After the action and tragedy of the last issue – complete with its long overdue breaking of the fourth wall – it’s time for a comic that has a much more measured pace.

Rowell is brilliant at these quieter issues and she has a fantastic grasp of Jen’s character, as well as everyone around her.

Just because the pace slows here, allowing us to grieve alongside Jennifer, it doesn’t mean that it’s uneventful.

Far from it; the Doombot court case concludes here and Jen pours her heart out to best friend Patsy Walker, aka Hellcat.

It’s an issue seeped in melancholy, but it’s not without humour or hope.

This incarnation of She-Hulk, aside from a few wobbles along the way, has been one of my favourite ever – even if the ninth issue’s cliffhanger broke my heart.

Jen deserves a happy ending; let’s all collectively hope that she gets one, as the series heads into its (potentially) final act.
