She-Hulk: Superhuman Law (Volume 2) 21 Aug. 2005
By N. Foong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Collecting issues 7-12 of the newly revived She-Hulk series, writer Dan Slott continues his charming blend of stellar action and clever nostalgia. Defying recent comic book trends that explore the darker themes of superheroes in a realistic setting, She-Hulk turns its back on the heavy handed approach and comes up with a light, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable series.

The clean lines of artist Juan Bobillo set up the first story arc (issues 7-8) which features an entertaining if unlikely tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek boxing match on a cosmic scale. The second arc (issues 9-12) continues the serviceable pencils of Paul Pelletier to set up a memorable, old fashioned superhero showdown between She-Hulk and the classic Marvel villain Titania. There are also a number of continuing subplots that develop in this collection including the weakest aspect of this series, She-Hulk as guardian and role-model for her employers' delinquent granddaughter, Southpaw. This troubled relationship is tiresome and distracts from the otherwise excellent story telling.

Before I read this and the first trade paperback, I had no interest in ever reading a She-Hulk comic book. The hyperbole surrounding Dan Slott as an emerging writing talent drew me in and it was a pleasant surprise to find that perhaps with further experience, Slott could very well be considered one of the top writers in a crowded market. Slott makes excellent comical use of forgotten second (and third) rate Marvel characters such as the Awesome Android, Hercules, even Howard the Duck (to name just a few) and an abundance of quirky ideas in this second She-Hulk book will bring a smile to any new or long time comic book reader.

Superhuman law is super! 8 Jan. 2006
By T. J. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This second collection of She-Hulk's third series continues the fun new direction initiated by writer Dan Slott and artists Juan Bobillo and Paul Pelletier. The series is superhero adventures by way of "Boston Legal". All adventures are either a result of a legal case or initiating one, providing much humor along the way, with the occasional pokes at comic book conventions that readers have willingly suspended their disbelief for over the years.

Slott's writing is top-notch, with all characters coming off as real and the humor coming from those characters rather than feeling forced or driving the characterizations. This is complemented nicely by his two artists. Juan Bobillo's style is a looser, more stylized representation of She-Hulk and her world which may require a discerning eye to appreciate, but is well worthy of such appreciation. Paul Pelletier, on the other hand, has been known for more traditional superhero art, and brings that style to play here to great effect, reminding the reader that these stories are not parodies, but take place in the same fictional timeline as those in Fantastic Four, New Avengers, etc.

If you enjoy superhero stories and enjoy a touch of humor, this book is for you.

I can't get enough She-Hulk! The fun continues from the first She-Hulk collection! 20 Mar. 2006
By Erika Galan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While not as groundbreaking as the first collection, I still had a good time following She-Hulk into her second collection. Just like before, where most books only tell you one padded out story, She-Hulk gives you a bunch of stories. This time around She-Hulk has a couple adventures being a judge in outer space, helps Hercules when a supervillain tries to sue him because Herc beat him up, and finally She-Hulk has a showdown with her arch enemy Titania.

After reading the first collection and its hilarious Spider-Man issue, I was hoping to see more of Spidey in this book as well. But he only showed up briefly in the last story, and only had one line of dialogue. Luckily though, there was a really funny issue with Hercules, and the scene where he sung in court was pretty much worth the cost of the collection alone!

This time around, I really took notice of one of She-Hulk's biggest strengths: her supporting cast. With characters like the loveable Awesome Andy, the bratty Southpaw, Pug, and Ditto, the supporting cast in this book is probably one of the best supporting casts in comics, up there with the original supporting cast from the early years of Spider-Man. That's something you just don't see anymore in comics today.

If you want to take a chance on a great new superhero book, I'd suggest buying the 1st collection of She-Hulk! And, after you fall in love with it, I'm sure you'll be back for this second helping! Now where's the third already?

Dan Slott does it again! 13 May 2005
By jessica j - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
She-Hulk vol 1 was a great book, with a little something for everyone. It had great dialogue, clever action sequences, and a lot of heart. The book was about Jennifer more than the Jade Giantess, and that was not a bad thing. The only bad thing was waiting for the next book, wondering if it was going to be as good.

It is, mostly. I was kind of bored through the first issue, because I found her "sidekick" supremely tedious, and the whole She-Hulk-as-interstellar-Solomon wasn't that interesting. The book really kicked in when she started hitting people again. She-Hulk faces an formidable adversary and has to use both brains and brawn to defeat him.

The end of the book deals with Shulkie's craziest adversary, Titania (from Secret Wars). This is the best part; it is smart writing and shows why Dan Slott is the darling of AintItCool. This book is so much fun.

Slow Start, But Delivers in the End 26 July 2005
By C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had high expectations going into this because I thought Vol. 1 was fantastic. Unfortunately, the first half of this book was a letdown for me. The humor mostly fell flat and the whole "She-Hulk as Intergalactic Judge" storyline was pretty boring.

The book really picks up steam in the second half. The whole Titania story is GREAT, we get her origin story and a big showdown with She-Hulk. The two halves of the book are related, so you can't just skip to the good part. You might be a little bored in the beginning, just know that it goes somewhere.

In the end, I'm glad I ordered it.
