Can I start this review with a short review of the Marvel subscription service? It might save you money, but it’s kinda trash in every other respect. I thought subscribing mere days after the first issue of She-Hulk came out would net me that issue, but no. Then the second issue didn’t arrive until nearly a month after its release. And due to a variety of factors, from the website being antiquated with next to no information on when anything is going to be (or is) shipped, as well as the comics not even showing up in my USPS Daily Digest email, I only found that first issue thanks to checking the mail religiously. I cancelled my subscription shortly before the third issue arrived, not even realizing it was on its way, and bought a copy of that same issue at the comic store here in town due to being tired of waiting. So now I have two copies, in case anybody wants one.
Anyway, onto the comic itself, She-Hulk #3 is extremely light on the story side of things. It’s little more than Jen and Jack catching up and bonding some over pizza. For a newbie like me who doesn’t know these characters, this is helpful, as it helps flesh out the characters, but I did find myself thinking “that’s it?” at the conclusion of the issue. I kept hoping for some sort of interesting story beat to come into play, but it never came. This issue clearly is meant to just lay some groundwork and give the story some breathing room, though, and I’m sure I wouldn’t mind it as much in a larger collected volume (like how I usually read comics). Still, I have to rate it as I read it, and so it doesn’t rate too highly for me.
