SHE-HULK #12 - Slott & Burchett - out today . . .
This issue brings us back to the Starfox storyline. There're some parts I liked and some parts I didn't, so I figured I'd do a list.
- Phyla and Moondragon. What? They're fun characters.
- Burchett's art. It really fits the tone of the book a lot better than what's-his-name who did the original Starfox two-parter.
- The John/Jen soapiness. Always nice.
- The Living Tribunal. A little cheesy, but a fun use of the character.
- Awesome Andy . . . awwwwwwww. Poor fella.
- Pip. Heh.
- RT's "impartial" bit.
- Thanos's reaction to Phyla calling herself Captain Marvel.
- The story of Lil' Thanos. Burchett really rocked this sequence. And it leads into a fun cliffhanger.
- Ditto's non-reaction to Stu's zapping.
- The Starfox-as-mental-rapist thing came off a bit better this time around, but it's still pretty icky - and not in a good way.
- The dig at ANNIHILATION. Not cool at all. Granted, I'm a bit biased, but that was one hell of a nasty little cheap shot considering how much work Giffen and company have been putting into Thanos's character, just for the sake of putting him back in his old duds. Especially since Moondragon's wearing her swanky new DiVito costume.
So . . . it's a good read, with some problems here and there. Anyone else read this?
