Issue Review
   August 24, 2017
Again, an elaborate plot with bad dialogue and abrasive characters.

Some of the plots in this series are too involved to work, but this one hangs together pretty well. It's enjoyable watching She-Hulk try to get home, for example. And a court case is solid engine for driving events.

However, the flaws that come with bad writing are in evidence.

Dialogue is often stiff and unrealistic.

The regular cast are obnoxious. Jennifer's tone with, and attitude towards, both her friend and her co-worker are off-putting to the reader. She's a jerk, basically. Arrogant. And, based on this chapter, a stupid and bad lawyer. This is is a recurring problem in the series. Jen isn't as smart as a real lawyer, or even a lawyer on TV. She blunders around like this was a Saturday morning cartoon.

She's also cheerfully disregarding her own health concerns, as the writer tries contrived ways to add tension. But it just makes her look like an idiot. And when she gets sick, we have no sympathy for her.

The ending is horribly contrived, too. And ludicrously downbeat.

Overall: a bad comic, with some enjoyable elements.

  - The epilogue teaches us that being in a wheelchair is worse than death. Shun the disabled. Shun!
Ridicilous ending. Why couldn't they just learn their lesson, adjust to new life style, and be happy ever after?

- Ultima is her father's daughter. She narrates and discribes everything she does. A talkative bunch, those Wordmans.

- Ultima must be highly suggestible. She has been talked into being a super-human while having no super powers. She also believes in Loch Ness monster, Santa Claus and Tooth Fairy.

- Reminds me of a guy who named his daughter Olympian.

- "Let me through, I'm a doctor! I have looked at the patient for 5 seconds and I can assure you that she'll never speak again. Yes, after being hit with a car. Yes, I'm 100% positive. What? Yes, I'm a real doctor, what kind of question is that?"

  -Some of those panels showing She-Hulk and Ultima throwin' down were kind of erotic...:)

  I like this series, but the art of Vosburg is starting to annoy me. The faces changes from panel to panel

  Maybe I've been watching too much Boston Legal, but She-Hulk is a terrible lawyer! It'll be interesting to see if this changes.

  Not a good issue, but Golden is so very good at covers.

  The speech bubble ruined what would've been a pretty great cover

  Despite how rediculous that court case was, the beginning here was ok. The ending though...

  We're in the 80's... when does Matlock make a special guest appearance?
