She-Hulk #6

She-Hulk #6 continues, and eventually stalls, the Blue File storyline. While offering glimpses worthy of note including resurrecting properties of Angie Huang's pet moneky Hei Hei and the fact that She-Hulk is not immune to the mind control involved in making both heroes and villains forget whatever happened in North Dakota (which only kicks in now?), the issue brings the investigation to a halt along with tons of new potential clients for She-Hulk as the comic (apparently) has decided to shelve the storyline (for now) and more in a different direction.

I was less-than-thrilled with switch to Ronald Wimberly's art beginning last issue, but the Blue File storyline offered an intriguing mystery I wanted to see through. Since that isn't going to happen any time soon, and the art is even more jarring this month, I'm sad to say I'm probably done with the title. I think Charles Soule has introduced several intriguing ideas for the new series including Jennifer's Walters' unorthodox staff and offices catering to super-human characters, but despite my appreciation of the character there's simply not enough here to bring me back month after month. Pass.
