The Sensational She-Hulk 43: Yeah, John Byrne Also Thinks Rob Liefeld Sucks
The splash page and first few pages of this issue are terrifying since it looks as if writer/artist Rob Liefeld has taken over the book. Fortunately, it's just creator John Byrne making fun of Liefeld and the regular Byrne art returns in a few pages. Unfortunately, the Rob Liefeld parody is the most interesting part of the book. The rest of the book is a She-Hulk-Xemnu battle averaging 3 panels a page. At this point, it's difficult to tell if Byrne is parodying the dumb superhero comics of the 1990s or if he's decided that if he can't beat them (saleswise) then he'll join them (lazywise). Here are some random thoughts on this issue:
*She-Hulk's sidekick Weezi returns from her character strike to resemble one of those short, slightly chubby women with round glasses that Byrne seems to always love to draw.
*The letters page doesn't have enough letters to fill it, another indication of the title's slide in popularity.
*There really isn't much to this issue, so there's not much to say about it.
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?
