4.0 out of 5 stars She-Hulk: Superhuman Law (Volume 2), August 21, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: She-Hulk Vol. 2: Superhuman Law (Paperback)
Collecting issues 7-12 of the newly revived She-Hulk series, writer Dan Slott continues his charming blend of stellar action and clever nostalgia. Defying recent comic book trends that explore the darker themes of superheroes in a realistic setting, She-Hulk turns its back on the heavy handed approach and comes up with a light, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable series.

The clean lines of artist Juan Bobillo set up the first story arc (issues 7-8) which features an entertaining if unlikely tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek boxing match on a cosmic scale. The second arc (issues 9-12) continues the serviceable pencils of Paul Pelletier to set up a memorable, old fashioned superhero showdown between She-Hulk and the classic Marvel villain Titania. There are also a number of continuing subplots that develop in this collection including the weakest aspect of this series, She-Hulk as guardian and role-model for her employers' delinquent granddaughter, Southpaw. This troubled relationship is tiresome and distracts from the otherwise excellent story telling.

Before I read this and the first trade paperback, I had no interest in ever reading a She-Hulk comic book. The hyperbole surrounding Dan Slott as an emerging writing talent drew me in and it was a pleasant surprise to find that perhaps with further experience, Slott could very well be considered one of the top writers in a crowded market. Slott makes excellent comical use of forgotten second (and third) rate Marvel characters such as the Awesome Android, Hercules, even Howard the Duck (to name just a few) and an abundance of quirky ideas in this second She-Hulk book will bring a smile to any new or long time comic book reader.
