Don't know if anyone else has picked up the first 2 issues of the Shulkie's new book, but I personally am enjoying it a lot. It's actually one of my favorite things I've read lately. It's got that fun feel that a She-Hulk book should have without being overly silly. The writer takes the book and the character seriously but still recognizes the tone that has made her great in the past. Of course, I've made no secret that I love Hell-cat too, so seeing in issue 2 that she's going to be a major supporting character just added to my joy. If you haven't picked up, I hope you'll do it. I'm sure it can use the love. If it's like her previous books, it won't be around long but I'm hoping it can find enough of audience to make it this time.
Okay spiderwasp, I usually agree with your posts, so I just might have to check this out>>>which means I will leaf through it at my LCS and if the art is acceptable, I just might buy it (hope it's $3). I always loved Shulkie in Avengers, and I like Hellcat, just wish someone knew how to use/write her.
Okay, I leafed through #1, and it didn't look like anything I hadn't already seen....She-Hulk being a lawyer, getting stressed out about it, yeah, yeah.
I bought #2 (it WAS $2.99, sweet) because I saw Hellcat, and it was pretty good. I like how her office building for her law firm is full of ONLY super-powered beings. I also liked the art by Javier Pulido, it is VERY reminiscent of X-statix's Mike Allred, IMHO. I really like Allred's art, too. These two guys' styles have an old-school, almost Kirby-esque -ness that I enjoy. And I can't stand my super-heroes to be too cartoon-y, but this style is OK, again, IMO.
So I think I would but this book semi-regularly, as long as it continues with the classic guest-stars and Z-listers (like all of Shulkie's past series), and mixes in enough fisticuffs with the jokes.
