She-Hulk 20: A Visit To Duckworld
This issue sees more manic wrapup of plotlines as writer Dan Slott's run on She-Hulk concludes. The issue is still fun to read, but it would have been nice to have seen these stories fully fleshed out. Here are some more random thoughts on this issue:
*We are treated to a quick visit to Duckworld, homeland of Howard The Duck, which makes for a great cover.
*Even with all the wrapping up of plotlines, some still get unaddressed. For example, we never learn what happened to She-Hulk's boss, Holliway, who is presumably still wandering around looking for his niece. We do find the niece, however. Meanwhile, Slott, or co-writer Ty Templeton, are still introducing new subplots, none of which will likely ever get followed up on. Thanks, guys!
*Man-Thing gueststars, as does She-Hulk's former boyfriend Richard Rory. It's always a nice treat to see characters such as them. Some of the Marvel characters can't really star in their own titles. Man-Thing's a prime example. Unless you're Alan Moore, what can a writer do with a bit of swamp muck wandering around in a swamp? Not much. Slott uses these bit characters well though; they're better as supporting characters.
*The letters page has disappeared for several issues now, along with Pip The Troll. That's too bad, as it was a funny gag. Either no one wrote in or they couldn't spare the page. I do miss the letters page in comics. Not many are left. And, speaking, er, blogging of not many, not many She-Hulk posts are left. Only one. Tomorrow.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
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?
