MarvelBlog REVIEW: She-Hulk #1
A character that is quickly approaching her MCU Debut has found herself as the subject of a brand new Marvel comic series; this is our review of She-Hulk #1.
From the very beginning of this issue, you get the sense that this is a Jennifer Walters story that is quite unlike any others.
Walter has always been the confident hero that was never shy about embracing her role in the Marvel Universe, but this version of the character is quite noticeable lacking that same confidence.
It isn’t just the reader who is made aware of that same lacking of confidence, it is the individuals who interact with her in the issue, specifically Titania who approaches in the opening panels to face off against the hero.
Perhaps it is this shift in tone and focuses that makes Rainbow Rowell and Roge Antonio so interesting, or perhaps it is that the book is so good in so many different areas.
Very quickly you get a feel for how well Rowell understands humor, and more specifically, the kind of humor that so perfectly fits a character like Jennifer Walters.
That is maybe most apparent about She-Hulk #1, it is a genuinely funny issue with moments that you can so clearly imagine playing out in real-time; it proves that that duo of Rowell and Antonio really understands how comedy is best served in a medium that makes it so difficult.
Not only is Walter funny, and carrying with her the signature charm of the character, but she is also incredibly endearing; the first issue will make you want her to succeed, it will make you want to invest in this brand new story.
Coupled with Anotnio’s beautiful use of color and creative imagery and it feels like this is a She-Hulk series that has the potential to be an instant classic for She-Hulk fans- and Marvel fans- alike.
