She-Hulk 14: Androids Have Feelings, Just Not Nerves
This issue focuses on the supporting character Awesome Andy, an android who has developed human-like feelings. As usual, writer Dan Slott and the crew do a nice job, but this issue did feel a little flat compared to the others. Here are some more random thoughts on this issue:
*She-Hulk and Man-Wolf break up. It's a shame that comic companies often like to return to the typical status quo instead of letting the characters develop. Having She-Hulk continue in the marriage would have actually been the more interesting narrative choice, but perhaps Slott knew that his run was wrapping up and he was clearing the table per se for the next writer.
*The Mad Thinker, Andy's creator, is drawn in a manner that resembles how one of his real-life creators, Jack Kirby, looked.
*The series gets taken in a new direction as She-Hulk moves from being a lawyer to working for S.H.I.E.L.D., a government intelligence agency. That's too bad. The law firm setting still had a lot of narrative life left in it. I suspect this shift is a result of Slott being jerked around by more powerful forces at Marvel since She-Hulk was being used in two major events, Civil War and World War Hulk.

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?
