Jeez, Rainbow Rowell, it sure took you long enough. After five issues of romantic tension, we finally get some payoff. Walters and Jack have literally already been acting like a couple all this time. It was long overdue. The guy is living with her and forever wearing the heart shirt that she gave him. I know Rowell likes to drag out romance in her stories, but this was bad even by her standards. I mean, if I had to pick one thing that felt like a throughline in this run of hers, it would be that relationship, and so I was frustrated when we kept going off on other random tangents that took away from the time between them. Like, with this to put the rest in context, it feels as if those were literally just cheap ways of putting off the run’s “end game,” so to speak. And it figures that Rowell would turn her run of She-Hulk into a romance. She’s, admittedly, a bit of a one-trick pony. Normally she does that trick a hell of a lot better than this, though. Here’s to hoping the following issues continue to pay this off and that we don’t go back to more random distractions. Because, for the first time in a while with this run, I found myself becoming invested in the characters. Maybe that’s because Rowell stopped trying to do other things and went back to what she does most and does best. It still has plenty of room to get better, but it’s a start. Please, don’t mess it up now, Rowell.
