    This is a pretty good place to start reading this series if you haven't been keeping up. If you want to read some Red She-Hulk this is a good introduction because you get a lot of action (which you should expect from a Hulk book), but you also get a taste of who Betty Ross is and what she stands for. What lengths will she go to for what she believes? All of this is addressed here and I think that's important to recognize. It's a great example of how a fun action comic can also have some depth. The art is superb and the appearances of some of the Avengers doesn't hurt, either. I am definitely looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Mark Waid's Indestructible Hulk launches next week. And while I'm sure that series will be great, Parker has more than proven that there's room for more than one Hulk book in the Marvel NOW! lineup. I just hope other readers feel the same. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Scott Dec 8, 2012

    The last few pages and the last battle are classic Marvel Comics scenarios and well worth the time reading this issue. Like I said earlier this issue is a fun read and a definite pick up if you want to try out a new book or needed some comic book filler on your Wednesday commute to your local comic shop, you never know it could be a small week and out of the corner of your eye you just happen to see Red She-Hulk #59. Remember this review. Read Full Review

    Story-wise Red She-Hulk is a hit, but the art should prevent a lot of people from adding this to their already swelled pull-lists. The good news is, the way Marvel editorial likes to shift around artists, there is bound to be a change coming soon. As a long-time reader of the Hulk title and a fan of Jeff Parker as a writer, I will definitely be sticking with this series, but let me be clear, it is solely due to Parker's ability to craft a fantastic story and write a compelling character, it has nothing to do with the unspectacular artwork.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 16, 2012

    Thing is, I really feel like The Avengers are being utter jerks here (which is probably the point), but I haven't quite gotten to the point where I'm trusting my protagonist's instincts yet. Her attack endangers hundreds, maybe THOUSANDS on innocents, and seems somewhat out of character based on her actions in the first half of the book. Luckily, I DO trust Jeff Parker's instincts after his previous work, and I'm still interested enough to keep reading this book. Artistically, it's pretty awesome (although the new Captain America helmet looks goofy as all hell) and the technological marvels of Machine Man have sold me on a series for him as well, preferably by this creative team. Red She-Hulk #59 is still above average work, though not as striking as last issue, and continues to strengthen the character past her less-than-impressive origins, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I'm also waiting to see how long it takes for the Alpha Flight cameo appearances... Read Full Review

    People sometimes forget how much Betty has changed in such a short amount of time. Maybe we should see exactly what has changed and if there may be a little of the old Betty left. Will we ever see this character develop into a likeable character that has rational reasoning to her actions? Read Full Review

    The storyline is a bit light, but the whole “misunderstanding between heroes that results in a fight” is kind of a Marvel institution at this point, so I'll forgive it. All in all, it's not the best comic I've ever read, but it's entertaining and has nice artwork. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 15, 2012

    The second issue of the Marvel NOW! launch of "Red She-Hulk," while disappointing, does offer some nice character bits and moments of development for X-51. As the automaton says in conversation with Captain America with regards to the Red She-Hulk, "I am building a profile, Captain. It is far from complete." That is a fair assessment of the two issues of this series so far. Jeff Parker has built profiles before and made marginal characters interesting. I have no doubt he can make me care about Red She-Hulk, but I need to see more than I've seen in "Red She-Hulk" #59 to draw a firm conclusion. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jake Baumgart Nov 15, 2012

    Series writer Jeff Parker seems to have a lot on Betty's to-do list but fits more than needed into the issue. Between the government angle, the mental child and the renegade tone, there are too many themes are going on at once and Red She-Hulk can't smash them all. Read Full Review
