The Sensational She-Hulk 41: She-Hulk Fights Rocks
It took about three minutes to read this comic, five if you count the letter page. A lot of the pages have three panels on them (eight, in fact; some have even less). Admittedly, it's a story set in outer space and larger panels make for a more cosmic feel, but the story (She-Hulk fights rocks) is so lightweight that it likely would have been over in ten pages with six-panel pages (and Alan Moore could probably have done it in five pages with the Watchmen nine panel grid). As it is, creator John Byrne has to pad out the issue with a final page about the editor calling him up to complain that the story is a page short (at least that page has seven panels on it). I have no random thoughts on this issue. I must have bought the Byrne She-Hulk issues in a bunch after I liked the first couple. If they were all like this, then I would have saved my money. I hope Byrne's later issues have more thought put into them. He's proven time and again that he's capable of much better work than this. Apparently, his other series, Next Men, had priority at this time.
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?
