She-Hulk 5: Dan Slott Writes A Longer Story
After demonstrating that he could write great single issue stories, writer Dan Slott stretches out a bit in this issue with the first part of a two issue story involving a very unique prison break. In the Marvel continuity of the time, supervillains were being shrunk down and held in a miniature prison. This story concerns how some of those villains devise a way to use She-Hulk to break out. It's clever stuff even if it doesn't have the snap of the previous single issue stories, though perhaps that lost snap is explained by the absence of regular artist Juan Bobillo. Here are some other random thoughts on this issue:
*What is She-Hulk smashing on the cover? Concrete? A gallon of milk? Whatever it is, she doesn't like it. I like her weightlifter gloves though.
*This issue has a cameo from The New Warriors. As a writer, Slott clearly delights in playing with all the toys in the Marvel toybox.
*There's an ad for a Justice League cartoon movie inside. Apparently, Time-Warner, owner of DC Comics, was so desperate that they actually advertise their products in comics by their major competitor, Marvel. Actually, this probably isn't a bad idea (someone reading She-Hulk probably likes Superman and the gang as well), but it's still a bit weird.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
