Preview: Marvel’s She-Hulk #1

While putting together this post I lamented not being able to choose which variant cover to feature because they were all so good. Not a bad problem to have. Thanks, Marvel! Click ahead to check out a preview of the upcoming She-Hulk #1.

The Mary Sue Exclusive: She-Hulk Calls for a Time Out

To commemorate New York Comic Con, ReedPop (organizers of the event), Marvel and Time Out New York collaborated on some covers. They thought this one, by John Tyler Christopher, would be of interest to you guys, and, well. Who could say no to She-Hulk?

Good News Everyone!

She-Hulk Returns to Her Own Title Series

In many ways, a good She-Hulk comic can do for the Marvel Comics universe what Agents of SHIELD is doing for the Marvel Cinematic universe, bring out the stories of how all that flash bang saving the world activity really affects the folks who had very little or nothing to do with the actual action while playing merrily with genre conventions. The character has had a number of different solo series over the years, most recently Dan Slott’s She Hulk: Single Green Female, so I’m happy to see her return to her own title, and especially glad to see Javier Pulido doing the art.

Review: The She-Hulk Diaries

The idea of novels based on Marvel superheroes written for a “chick lit” audience is one that was greeted with a lot of trepidation by our commenters back in February, and we knew that meant that a review was absolutely necessary. After all, we were kind of excited about it. Well, I was. A She-Hulk television show in the style of Ally McBeal is basically a thing I’d collect the Dragon Balls for. I’ve always loved the triple bridge her character makes between the hypermasculine-coded world of superheroes, the intellectual world of legal studies, and a third set of traits that are often considered the exact opposite of both the masculine and the intellectual: a woman who likes partying and casual sex. I was very interested in seeing how that concept might play out if you replaced “Ally McBeal” with “Bridget Jones” and aimed it at a mass female audience.

What I’m trying to say is that Jill is reading Rogue Touch and will have a review when she’s done, so in the meantime lets talk about The She-Hulk Diaries, by Marta Acosta. Smashing occurs. So does smooching. And sm — sss… Lawyering.

This Just Might Be the She-Hulk Shirt You Were Looking For

When We Love Fine initially put Hanie Mohd‘s beautiful Marvel ladies ballgown prints up for t-shirt sales, we mentioned that while none of them were available in ladies sizes, We Love Fine has a history of being responsive to specific requests for women’s shirts. The first of the prints to see enough demand for a ladies tee version is She-Hulk, and I couldn’t be prouder of my favorite Marvel superheroine.

Anyway, we thought you’d like to know. Mohd herself notes that the more specific the request you give We Love Fine, the more effective it is, so if you want one of the other Marvel ladies, send them an email and ask for it!

Almost Totally Excellent

Hanie Mohd’s Marvel Ballgowns Are Now Official Marvel Merch on WeLoveFine!

I looked at all of these and tried to figure out which one to put at the top, and immediately realized it had to be She-Hulk, holding up the world. Obviously. I mean, not because she’s my favorite, or anything. It should be obvious to anyone. Hanie Mohd‘s gorgeous superheroine gowns in the art nouveau style are now being offered as prints and shirts at WeLoveFine.

The prints are beautiful, but I know many of you will be disappointed to know that the shirts are currently only being sold in men’s sizes. However, we at The Mary Sue know from experience that if WeLoveFine sees enough folks asking for ladies sizes, they get made. So I’ll just leave their contact info and Mohd’s artist page here. Each individual t-shirt page has a comments section in it, and that seems like the perfect place to let WeLoveFine that there are women out there who want these too.


Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.
