Urgh, I'm not sure I'll ever like Tony Stark again, even after this book, but overall, I'm on board with this new direction. I hope Jen gets back to the firm as soon as she's ready.

I remember Peter David's Star Trek books fondly for their loose good humor, but then, I read them in high school. Thinking back, they had more than a bit of fic-proper about them. (For instance, I think there was a book called Q-in-Law where, at one point, Lwaxana is beating up Q, and Troi asks Worf, "What should we do?" and he responds "Sell tickets." Funny! But all the way at the silly, dressing-up-like-Robin-Hood end of TNG, and maybe even a little past it.)

The quips are funny, and the meta-b

This volume really goes off the rails. Jen is suddenly a completely jerk, is working as a bounty hunter, and the majority of the characters that were fun and interesting from earlier volumes are gone. Blah.

Like Alias and The Pulse, this probably would have been more entertaining if I hadn't read Dan Slott's amazing She-Hulk first. Sadly, I think Dan Slott has attained the pinnacle of comics (for me) so pretty much everything else will be found wanting. Too bad Dan Slott is a jerk.

I don't mind Peter David's characterization, but I don't love it either. He seemed to take all of She-Hulk's joy away, and he doesn't actually explain why in this book. Shulkie spends some time feeling sorry for herself f

Ok this was WAY better than the first She Hulk volume. There were NO weight jokes or fat jokes! The character of She Hulk and of Jen were both totally different. Gone was the bimbo personality and the party girl. Instead you had a grown up character. There was also a LARGE number of women characters besides She Hulk. It was really impressive how gender equal this comic was. They'd clearly put a lot of thought into trying to be more inclusive.

However, it was still a superhero comic. There were f

She-Hulk's always been more of a comedic book, but Peter David's comedy is much more dialogue-based than Dan Slott's run on the book, which had much more character-based humor and development. She-Hulk's moved off to the sidelines of superhero battles--she's in New Jersey and Ohio while all the real heroes are in New York, and is trying to make a go of it as a bounty hunter. The scenario seems like it could work, but most of the book is flat but tolerable. David has some nice gags towards the be ...more

Another great volume! This one has some especially excellent cover art specially “The Whole Hero Thing Conclusion” (#26) and “Friends in Need” (#27). A nice change of pace from the previous issues since She Hulk is no longer a lawyer or a ‘hero’ instead, she is trying to make a living and mind her own business. Of course being She Hulk means that your ‘business’ always ends up being heroic in nature.

You can tell that this was not written by the wonderfully witty Dan Slott. As a result the story

A little bit incoherent, a little bit silly. I haven't yet read the last few She-Hulk issues, the library doesn't have them. So I don't really know how Jennifer got herself into her current predicament. But the writing is really good as are the side-characters, heck even the random characters. The space aliens actually kind of fit into the rest of the Marvel continuity but without being irritating. Even Creel and his girlfriend added to the story. And they did a travelogue without it feeling lik ...more

If the Dan Slott She-Hulk comics didn't hold up as well as I thought, these are even worse, and I didn't like them that much when I first started reading them. The interesting supporting cast has been jettisoned, She-Hulk is too dark a character and the book has a cynical, bitter edge to it that doesn't work for this character. I've liked, nay loved, many Peter David comics, but sadly, not these.

An entertaining Shulkie comic that would be a bit forgettable if not for that cover...seriously, click on it and look. That is She-Hulk ripping the pages to stop someone groping her (giant, straining) boobs. Is it supposed to be empowering - addressing the way woman are drawn in comics? Or is it so gross that it passes through misogyny and arrives at utterly bizarre? Actually yeah, I think it's that last one.

She Hulk is now a bounty hunter after a disagreement with Stark. Peter David has really got the handle on her character, strong willed and independent. The stories are interesting, and the second story is so well written. I feel a connection again to the character that had been lost in the previous books. Also the parody at the end is classic, and puts voice to how the fans feel the character has been treated. A very good read.

Between panels where for some godawful reason the artist decided we needed to constantly be aware that shulkie was wearing a thong in issue 25, to the incredibly lazy "daddy issues" plot with Jaz and Roz in issue 24, this volume and *new direction* was a disaster that I wish I could unread. The only thing I'm grateful for is that I read this via Marvel Unlimited and didn't actually buy it.

This was a weird book. It's a really unexplained (and surprising) decision to reboot the very good Dan Slott stories. The Slott stories are definitely better.

This isn't bad -- it has a couple of good moments. But the story itself kind of puts the reboot at the forefront, leaving it as a mystery what happened between Slott and David. I guess I want to know.

I'm very glad Peter David took over this title when he did. I don't think I could have handled another boring overly self-referential issue from Dan Slott.

This volume is actually worth reading and makes me want to keep reading. Bring on volume 7!

This was much better than some of the earlier volumes that I read. I think I prefer Peter David's take on She-Hulk. It also didn't hurt that I like the artwork better in Jaded than in some of the previous books. I'm not a fan of the soft look, so the new style suits my personal taste a little more.

A new writer takes She-Hulk from her law practice to the crazy world of bounty hunting! How did this career change occur? You'll have to read to find out!

A little flat. Entertaining but left me a bit disappointed. It has a really cool story but felt like it was missing the soul most Marvel comics have.

A good, smash em' up She-Hulk written by the always great Peter David. This story also features a goodly bit of character development, and as always with Peter David, humor.
