She-Hulk 10: I'm A Slott Slut!

She-Hulk gets used to married life in yet another fun issue by writer Dan Slott.  After reading his She-Hulks in order and some of his other comics such as his Great Lakes Avengers stuff on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, I think I'm becoming a Slott Slut (or whatever fans of Dan get called), and I'll be checking out his work more often in the future.  Here are some random thoughts on this issue:

*The cover has a couple of folds in it.  I think they were going for an old folded up Bmovie poster feel but I'm not sure why they bothered with the folds when the Bmovie poster idea would have probably worked out well enough on its own.  Maybe they were going for something else.  If anybody has any better ideas, then please comment.

*Previous She-Hulk creator John Byrne's tradition of having She-Hulk fight silly villains returns when Ruby Thursday pops up in this issue.  If you don't know about Ruby, she has a red ball for a head and a hand sticks out of the ball (don't ask).

*Slott pokes some fun at the confusion all the various She-Hulk series over the years have caused collectors, and then the production staff on this comic actually does get confused and in a crucial scene runs the cover to issue 7 from this series where they meant to run the cover from issue 7 of the previous series.  Things were much easier when rebooted comics just picked up the numbering of the previous series, weren't they?
