Stupid schoolwork and job and stuff. Keeping me from my reading She-Hulk.
She-Hulk #3, for me, feels like the creative team have found their stride, while at the expense of a fairly thin set-up. Soule has the right balance of lawyering, humor, and action. And Pulido's art is definitely a step up from the previous issues with how much he has going on in the panels.
The issue opens with Jen and Kristoff Vernard surrounded by Doombots before cutting away to a few hours earlier. Taking place immediately after issue two, Kristoff explains that he seeks political asylum with the help of Jennifer. The main reason for this is that Kristoff does not wish to be some puppet for Dr. Doom should he ever pass away. Upon realizing he has been in the US for one year, Jen informs him that he has "a one-year window to file an asylum claim", and rushes out to head toward a federal courthouse. After an altercation with a Doombot, which ejected Jen from the car and drove Kristoff to the airport, the two "borrow" an older Fantasticar that was in storage. I guess it is a good thing Reed stores his old tech at JFK International Airport.
As we cut back to "now", and after realizing their disguise is blown, Jen hulks out form human form to bash 'bot butts, letting Kristoff run. A Doombot managed to capture him, but we're quickly shown that it was Patsy in disguise. She, too, commences kicking 'bot butts. Angie managed to slip Kristoff pass the robots and into the courthouse. A security guard attempts to take away her monkey, but Angie convinces the guard not to (queue ominous music of mystery). After all is said and done, and the judge allows Kristoff asylum, Dr. Doom himself shows up to take his son away. And the issue issue abruptly ends right there.
This was a much better issue than the ones to come before, and despite the weakness of the plot, I still enjoyed reading it. And if you feel that the awkwardly drawn armor suits from issue two were bad, then this issue will more than make up for it with Pulido's Doombots. This book continues to be more about the characters and less about telling some grandiose story, which is fine and good in my opinion.
