She-Hulk 6: Awesome Andy Is Indeed Quite Awesome
This issue finishes the story started last month concerning the miniature supervillains' prison break. It's the payoff for last issue's setup, and it does indeed pay off for the reader, making for a fun story. Here are some other random thoughts on this issue:
*She-Hulk is smashing her logo on the cover. Apparently, she was upset at her low sales. Fortunately, the book was getting noticed by the critics. Wizard Magazine had named it book of the month. Though Wizard often had a bad reputation for their encouragement of spectator excesses, the magazine's writers often did champion underappreciated but well-done comics as well.
*The best part of the story concerns The Mad Thinker's android, now called Awesome Andy and working at She-Hulk's law firm. A big gray bulky fellow with a stone block for a head and forced to communicate with some sort of chalkboard thingy hung around his neck, A.A. has quite a personality, and he shines here as he is forced to decide whether or not he wants to rejoin his creator in a life of crime or keep working at the law firm.
*Actor/musician Jack Black makes a cameo on the first page.
*Writer Dan Slott has fun with the longtime conceit of the Marvel Universe that Marvel Comics publishes officially licensed adventures of the Marvel heroes. Apparently, they're admissible in court too! I doubt that works in our universe, but next time you get in trouble with the law maybe you can give the police a copy of one of the Spider-Man comics with the clone storyline and claim your clone did it instead!

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?
