    It's always a gamble devoting an entire miniseries to an essentially unknown, unproven character, and Lyra may need a little tinkering to be a successful lead in the future, but All New Savage She-Hulk demonstrates a lot of potential and succeeds in being a fun old-school romp that is at least better than the last couple years of the title whose name it inherited.

    "All-New Savage She-Hulk" #1 is rounded out with a seven-page behind the scenes conversation with Fred Van Lente, Jeff Parker, and Paul Tobin, moderated by editor Mark Paniccia. This may not be the most ideal way to try to justify the extra buck this issue runs above many other shelfmates, but it does offer a little more creativity than some randomly fished out reprint would. Check out the preview here. Read Full Review

    I'm still on the fence about this issue, for a lot of reasons. I don't like the use of the She-Hulk name, especially with the original actually in the book, and I'm not entirely sold on Lyra as a character. Her visual, however striking it may be, is just a mashup of She-Hulk and Thundra, and the issue doesn't give us a whole lot to love about her in terms of character, what with the mass destruction, and the yelling and the GLAVIN! Still, it's well written (by Fred Van Lente, one of my new fave-raves) it fits snugly into continuity at some point during the Dark Avengers fiasco, and there's a Norman Osborn appearance with both Venom AND Dark Wolverine that threatens to take my "TOPICAL CAMEO" meter into the red, with the possibility of bursting into flames. There's potential here, and the art is very striking throughout, so it's not as though the issue was a failure, but it's still got a lot of rough eges that I'd like to see sanded down before I can whole-heartedly recommend it Read Full Review
