She-Hulk 12: Starfox Returns!

Writer Dan Slott picks up the Starfox storyline again in this issue, which sees She-Hulk whisked off into outer space by The Living Tribunal to observe Starfox's trial on Titan.  Here are some random thoughts on this issue:

*Thanos pops up.  He apparently will be the villain of the next Avengers movie.  A new book, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, among other things, tells the story of those trippy days in the 1970s that led to the creation of Thanos and Starfox and the rest of the cosmic gang who appear here. It looks like an interesting read. Given my backlog of reading material, due to rereading my comic book collection, I should get to it around 2015.

*Slott likes the obscure characters of the Marvel universe so much that when a character needs a doctor, of course, he gets treated by Jane Foster from Thor.

*Like the old John Byrne-era letter pages, a character will start answering the letters, but it's not She-Hulk this time; it's Pip The Troll.  Unlike Jim Starlin, creator of many of the characters Slott uses here, Slott doesn't appear to take psychedelics.  He probably doesn't need to.
