She-Hulk 6: Starfox Romances The Stars, The Black Holes, And Whatever Else You Got
This issue starts a new case of legal hijinks involving the superhero Starfox being accused of date rape. Of course, this being She-Hulk, it's a comedy, and, despite the more serious overtones, another fun issue. Here are some random thoughts on it:
*This was the first Dan Slott She-Hulk I bought, and I was quite impressed, so I picked up more. I probably would have continued to buy it on an ongoing basis, but issue 8 was a Civil War tie-in and sold out before I could get a copy (in fact, I never did get a copy of it), so after that I just bought an issue once in a while.
*I bought the issue because I liked Starfox and hadn't seen him in a comic for some time. I enjoyed The Avengers run by Roger Stern, and Starfox was a big part of that. It doesn't appear that Marvel used the character much since then, making him ripe for a Slott revival/revisioning. Slott's definitely right though that Starfox's ability to make people agreeable and happy could make him suspect, and Slott uses that ability to make another complication for the two love triangles in the series, as well as for a lot of suspense and comedy.
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?
