Brace yourselves, a new She-Hulk series is coming, and you best believe it’s going to be a humdinger! There have been plenty of She-Hulk comics over the years, and I’ve enjoyed most of them just fine. But I am particularly excited about this new one because writer Rainbow Rowell is going to be the wordsmith! Rowell blew me away with her work on The Runaways comic over the past several years, easily one of my favorite recent comics from Marvel. I was very sad when that comic came to an end.
Now I’m very happy that Rowell is sticking with Marvel and is tackling a character like She-Hulk! With art by Rogê Antônio.
I am very excited to get my hands on a new Rainbow Rowell comic and I think she’ll have a lot of fun with She-Hulk. She’s apparently taking the character back to basics, wherein Jennifer Walters juggles being a superhero and a lawyer. That sounds fine by me. I haven’t been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, wherein She-Hulk is more of a brute-type Hulk, so I have no problem with shifting the character.
“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “She’s smart, she’s funny — and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.”
The new series is coming in January, and you best believing I’ll be buying!
It’s a sad week for comics as a couple of good comics come to an end. But I’ve got another short week, so the sting wasn’t too bad. Still, Children of the Atom is ending too soon. But at least Might Morphin is firing on all cylinders!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Runaways #38 because it’s the final issue. Rainbow Rowell’s Runaways has probably been my favorite comic at Marvel for years now. It’s such a wonderful character-focused book. But the pandemic hit it hard. I’m very sad to see it go…especially considering all the ways it ends!
Meanwhile, I loved the first episode of What If…?. It was a fun, little jaunt of adventure. The animation really took me by surprise, especially the action scenes. Holy wowzers that was some good action! I’m definitely looking forward to more of the show now. And this weekend is also the open beta for Back 4 Blood. I was a big Left 4 Dead man back in the day, and I’m having a blast getting back into that saddle.
