Hi Everyone,

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book collects Issues 1-25 of the Savage She-Hulk. It's argued that the book is truly not "essential." In one way, there's a good argument to be had because these stories aren't "essential" in the way that early Spider-man,... Read more of this blog post »

Because Barnes and Noble can take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to publish, it makes it tricky to time a release. I published on the early side because I didn't want people to have to wait. It appears Barnes and Noble is efficient because Hyde and Seek is officially live!
