The Sensational She-Hulk 8: She-Hulk Teams Up With Santa Claus

This was John Byrne's final issue on the title for a couple of years.  He would return, but after this issue he got into a fight with the editor and moved on, which is too bad since he had introduced some interesting subplots that wouldn't get to be followed up on.  This issue wasn't the strongest swan song.  It mainly consisted on Santa Claus hitting on She-Hulk.  Byrne was definitely channeling his inner R. Crumb on this series.

Here are some random thoughts on this issue:

*The credits for the comic's creators are cleverly introduced on mail that She-Hulk retrieves from her apartment.

*She-Hulk gets back into practicing law in this issue.  A six foot plus tall green female would probably be an interesting lawyer to have.

*Fun, but a bit half-baked.  Maybe it was time for Byrne to leave the title.  Fortunately, he would return refreshed.
