This issue sees Jen represent a supervillain’s cyborg doppleganger who’s being tried for the crimes of the genuine article. Now that‘s the kind of lawyer work I want to see her doing!

Things get a little sexy in the early portion of this issue. I know it’s nothing new to see She-Hulk portrayed in a sexy light. But as a newer She-Hulk reader, it feels a little weird to me. After all, you rarely if ever see her male counterpart used that way, do you?

Astonishing Art: She-Hulk and Daredevil by Mike Hartigan

How sad is it that I haven’t even seen Daredevil’s appearance on She-Hulk, and yet I’m pretty much fully aware of all the “controversy” said appearance generated among some fans. Oye…

On paper it works though, doesn’t it? They’re both lawyers. They’re both superheroes. They have a lot in common! What’s the big deal?

Here’s Mike Hartigan making Jennifer Walters and Matt Murdock look like a power couple in his own fun, animated way.

Early in this issue, someone asks the question, “Who cares about Jack of Hearts?” Unfortunately, I’m finding the answer is, “Not me.”

The issue isn’t without intrigue, though. As we can see from Nightcrawler being on the cover, Jen is about to take a step into the world of the X-Men. That could be fun.

Maresca also draws a hell of a She-Hulk. So at least Jen looks good through all of this.

The Variants #3 Micro-Review – “Stow That Talk, Bean Jockey!”

A line from a gangster to a barista in this issue: “Stow that talk, bean jockey!”

I kind of wish I’d used that line during my barista days.

With all the coffee talk ere, along with the wit injected into some of Simone’s dialogue, parts of this issue almost reminded me of a Gilmore Girls episode. In the best way possible, of course.

This cover almost got our “Epic Covers” spot this week. Noto draws a great She-Hulk. Noto pretty much draws a great everything.

Toy Chest Theater: She-Hulk and Iron Man by @wheysnaps

In honor of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, which drops on Disney+ today, here’s a shot from @wheysnaps (in collaboration with @sarah_squirrel77 and @dalbermatianman) of the titular heroine putting Iron Man in an Ankle Lock.

As a wrestling fan, I can appreciate that the Ankle Lock is an actual hold used in pro wrestling. It’s been applied regularly by the likes of Ken Shamrock, Kurt Angle, and more recently Ronda Rousey.

Epic Covers: She-Hulk #6 by Mike Mayhew

By Rob Siebert

Do women find Hulk sexy? I mean, I’m sure some do. But it’s not a widely regarded thing, is it? That’s one thing She-Hulk has that Hulk doesn’t, necessarily: Sex appeal.

That’s definitely the vibe Mike Mayhew is going for with this cover. But it’s sexy in a classy, non-overt sort of way. Mayhew also doesn’t shy away from the musculature in the character’s legs, which I appreciate.

Anyone else see Megan Fox in the face? Just a little bit? Maybe it’s just me…

We spent most of this issue expositing with Jack of Hearts, a former Avenger and friend of Jennifer Walters who’s suddenly arrived at her new apartment. Not necessarily the way I would have gone about this second issue. But it seems like he’s integral to the story we’re telling here, so I get it.

Maybe it’s because I’m not a regular She-Hulk reader, but I’m more amused by her trying to do mundane, everyday stuff. Taking the subway, navigating through city traffic, getting to the office, etc. We only get that in the last fourth of this issue.

I’ve never read She-Hulk regularly. But I’m a Rainbow Rowell fan. So I might be sticking around for this one.

The series starts off with a brawl between She-Hulk and Titania that has a nice, almost mundane flavored comedic twist to it. It nicely set what will presumably be the tone for the series.

I got a little lost during the last two pages. But generally this was pretty easy to follow. Rowell writes Jennifer Walters very well as a down on her luck underdog, and Antonio’s art is a lot of fun. Here’s hoping the fun continues!
