She-Hulk 4: Green Guilt
This issue explains what Shulkie was doing between the two Dan Slott series. She apparently was cleaning up after herself. Though Slott was taking She-Hulk to new heights with his stories, other Marvel writers were using her as a plot device to do dumb stuff such as killing The Vision or wrecking a small town in a Hulk Smash mindless rampage (no PMS jokes please). In this issue, a guilty Jen Walters helps clean up a small town in Idaho that She-Hulk wrecked when another writer made her go nuts. It's an all right issue, but does "fill" like a fill-in, perhaps due to the absence of artist Juan Bobillo. Here are some random thoughts on the issue:
*Following last issue's tribute to Iron Man 100, this cover appears inspired by the cover of Secret Wars 4, which features The Hulk holding up tons of rock to save his fellow superheroes. Then again, maybe it's a coincidence that both are issues 4 with Hulks holding up tons of rock. Or, perhaps it's a fromage.
*The letters page jokes that last issue's letters page featured readers showing off their She-Hulk tattoos. There is no letters page in the previous issue. With the popularity of tattoos today (bleccchhhh!), someone out there probably does have The She-Hulk on their belly or something though.
*Dan Slott clearly has fun playing in the Marvel toybox. This issue he breaks out an old Western hero, The Two-Gun Kid, and adds him to the comic's cast. Like She-Hulk, he's a lawyer, so, no, he's not into the whole frontier justice thing, well, except when he's the one shooting someone vigilantestyle.

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?
