it was amazing
bookshelves: comic-books

John Byrne gives She-Hulk the new super power of being aware that she's a character in a comic book. He then unleashes some of marvel's goofiest villains upon her and does it with his trademark great art and it all clicks.

The idea is goofy, but once Byrne sets up the rules, he follows them and creates a great little corner of the Marvel Universe for her to play in.

The bad guys are goofy and lame, but Byrne plays them as straight menaces and She-Hulk treats them them the same way. The humor works because we are laughing at the situations and the twists on comic book cliches, but at the same time rooting for the heroes.

None of it feels mean spirited, like so many 'humor' comics can.

Plus, Byrne's She-Hulk is one of the great babes of the marvel universe and Byrne picks some of my favorite goofy villains for her to fight.
