She-Hulk 13: Blame It On Thanos
This issue concludes the Thanos storyline, and longtime Starfox fans are vindicated in that their hero is found to be innocent (he does voluntarily give up his love powers, which were corrupted by Thanos--I suppose that makes sense, since in the era of roofies and date rape, his powers are kind of creepy, but they were what also made him a bit unique among heroes in the 1970s and 1980s). Yet another fun comics from writer Dan Slott and crew! Here are some random thoughts on this issue:
*Marvel in this era would waste the splash page with a full page recap of the storyline. As former Marvel editor-in-chief Jim Shooter knew, recapping storylines are important since every comic is someone's first, but I don't think they needed to waste a whole page on this. I suppose this is better than wasting a page or two of the actual comic to cheesily recap the story through some lame character dialogue like they would often due in the 1970s and 1980s, but a text box across the top of a splash page would have sufficed and then the reader could have had an extra page of the comic.
*Assistant editor Aubrey Sitterson is a professional wrestling fan and has since gone on to work on wrestling video games. I'm not quite sure why She-Hulk needed two assistant editors and an editor (as I stated in an earlier post, I'm not sure why a Marvel editor even needs an assistant), but Sitterson made a fun letters page (even when no one wrote in such as in this issue). I thought the other assistant editor, Molly Lazer, might have made him up as an over the top persona who enjoyed wrestling and pornography and could go toe-to-toe with such fictional characters as Pip The Troll, but Sitterson is apparently real. It's too bad that Slott didn't work in a She-Hulk becomes a professional wrestler storyline for Sitterson. He did have a boxing storyline in the last series at least, so there was a bit of ring action.

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?
