She-Hulk 18: Shulkie Vs. Shellhead!
In this issue, She-Hulk learns that Iron Man and some other Marvel universe icons conspired to shoot her cousin The Hulk off into space, and she goes to express her displeasure at that event. Here are some random thoughts on this issue:
*This issue marks writer Dan Slott's 30th issue of She-Hulk, making him the writer who has written the most She-Hulk solo issues (actually he probably hit that mark last issue, but it's never too late to celebrate). She-Hulk's been fortunate in her writers. She's had some good ones including Stan Lee, John Byrne, Steve Gerber, and Slott.
*She-Hulk returns to her law firm in this issue and I suspect Slott agrees with her when she calls it the place she shouldn't have left. Finally, he can put the S.H.I.E.L.D. She-Hulk as intelligence agent storyline away, which was likely imposed upon him by higherups, and return to the storyline he had to leave dangling for a few issues.
*S.H.I.E.L.D. thinks that The Hulkbusters have captured The Hulk and they set up a "Mission Accomplished" banner, which allows Slott to poke fun at the infamous too early declaration of victory by George W. Bush in the Iraq War.
*She-Hulk loses her powers, but she claims that she'll make Iron Man suffer more in her lawyer alter ego. She-Hulk smashes, but Jennifer Walters sues.
*This was the best of Slott's S.H.I.E.L.D. stories, mainly because he was able to go back a bit more than in previous issues to the storyline he had been developing for twenty-five issues or so before the Civil War, Planet Without A Hulk, and World War Hulk events interrupted him.

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?
