She-Hulk 3: Or Maybe This Is Issue 100
This extrasized special issue celebrates 100 issues of She-Hulk, though officially it's just #3 of her current series. The main story features She-Hulk being on trial by the timecops for violating time travel protocols, which provides writer Dan Slott with a good excuse to recap She-Hulk's entire career. As a bonus, the comic includes reprints of issues #1 of both The Savage She-Hulk and The Sensational She-Hulk. Here are some random thoughts on this issue:
*Not only is this issue a lot of fun, it's actually a good value, which can't be said of most comics from this era, or even today. For $3.99, readers got 82 pages of comics. I wish comic companies published more issues like this! Of course, I think I got it for a buck years later, making it even more of a bargain.
*The cover is a homage to #100 of The Invincible Iron Man (or, as artist John Byrne liked to call it, a fromage, especially when the artist was attempting to swipe the work of a previous artist and then got caught doing so--this one's clearly an intentional tribute though).
*Speaking of Byrne (figuratively, literally I'm blogging of Byrne) he appears in this issue alongside other She-Hulk creators and a cast of characters that includes everyone from The Avengers to Howard The Duck.
*The issue is also filled with guest artists including Don Simpson of Megaton Man fame (well, "fame" might not be the right word, but I like his work), which might be the only time Simpson's art has graced a Marvel comic. Note to Marvel: If you could get Simpson drawing something else, then I'd probably buy it.

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?
