As a superhuman lawyer, She-Hulk has tried some of the strangest cases on Earth...but all of that is about to change! Empowered by the Living Tribunal, Shulkie is heading into deep space to practice Universal Law! Guest-starring Adam Warlock, Gamora, and Pip the Troll! Plus: Out of all of She-Hulk's enemies, no one hates her more than Titania! So what's her beef? Where did all this hostility come from? What made little Skeeter MacPherran into the angry Amazon she is today? And what's about to make her one of the deadliest threats in the Marvel Universe? Special appearances by the Absorbing Man, Spider-Woman, and Doctor Doom! And finally, a major power boost has made She-Hulk stronger than ever - maybe even stronger than special guest-star Hercules! Feats of strength can wait, however, because this emerald enchantress is going to the books and relying on brains, not brawn, to get the Prince of Power out of some Herculean legal problems.

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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
