The Sensational She-Hulk 47: She-Hulk Meets The Thunderbirds!
This issue is a fill-in issue while creator John Byrne recharges his batteries. It must have been commissioned earlier since it ties in with a lot of the Steve Gerber stories (The Phantom Blonde, The Critic, and so forth). It was written by Simon Furman, a British writer, and concerns She-Hulk meeting puppets who bear a remarkable similarity to those from the British tv show The Thunderbirds (here they're called The Thunderhawks). It's not bad, but nothing great. It was refreshing to read something actually coherent after Byrne's last issue though. That's about as much as can be said about it. Obviously, I thought it was a Byrne issue when I bought it or I would have skipped it (upon rereading some of the Byrne issues, I wish I would have skipped a few of them as well). I have no random thoughts on this issue other than if you're collecting the Byrne She-Hulk comics, then you can skip this one. I do kind of miss fill-in issues (sometimes they were actually good), but today comics publishers usually delay the next issue when the creators can't make the deadline; back in 1992, comics were still enough of a newsstand business that one couldn't miss a deadline (which makes this issue odd since She-Hulk was a direct only title--sold only in comics shops and not returnable--at this point; perhaps the editor had this issue lying around and wanted to finally use 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?
