    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 7, 2014

    This book has one of the funniest and most earnest endings of any Ive read all year and anything that involves the description gigantic Doombot diplomacy has to be checked out. I had a good friend point out that a LOT of people have complained about Pulidos bizarre art while people seem to love All-New Ghost Riders (rightly so on the latter part). Id say its because both styles suit their respective books perfectly, but while Ghost Riders insane, kinetic visuals suit that books over-the-top action, the unreal strangeness that She-Hulk meets with a shrug is a much, much harder tone to illustrate, but Pulido does an amazing job of it. This is a very unique book that uses the medium of comics in a way that wouldn't work in any other medium. Read Full Review

    You don't need a jury to deliberate this one - She-Hulk is the best Marvel book out that you're not reading. Read Full Review

    Just as Daredevil has become a big hit, this series deserves the same kind of attention and praise. It's a lot of fun! Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon May 9, 2014

    What She-Hulk #4 lacks is urgency. She-Hulk has the time to travel to San Francisco for a friendly chat with Matthew Murdock, esquire, and even fight a little crime. Choices like this suck the excitement out of the book. Soule and Pulidos comedy is droll enough that it thankfully evens out this oversight, making She-Hulk #4 well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 25, 2014

    With everything else more or less wrapped up, the comic turns its attention to the mysterious Blue File teased in the first issue as She-Hulk returns home and asks for the help of both Angie Huang and Hellcat to get to the truth of a forgotten lawsuit involving herself and several heroes and super-villains. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Alex Smith May 8, 2014

    It's marvelous that a She-Hulk solo series exists. Not only that, but it's selling well too. Marvel has been putting out some of the freshest, contemporary takes on superheroes and Jen Walters is right at the top. Though this is the weakest issue so far, it's still a must-read, if only for the Daredevil opening. Pulido's art took some time to get used to, but now he's in a groove and producing incredible material. There is endless potential here. May these results continue for a long, long time.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 8, 2014

    She-Hulk #4 is less of a standalone issue than the previous three have been, focusing on Jen's efforts to rescue Kristoff Vernard from the clutches of his despotic father. That material proves entertaining, offering a nice mix of Hulk-y action and family humor. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Yamini C May 11, 2014

    You aren't going to get much in the way of plot intensity inShe-Hulk #4; certainly no apocalypses or game-changing catastrophes. And that's fine, because plenty of other books deliver on that front. What Soule, Pulido & Co are continuing to produce here is a unique comic that depicts its titular heroine as more than the sum of her lawyer and superhero parts " but with all the grit, determination, heart and superhero shenanigans you could hope for in any protagonist, much less a female lead. I'm just happy to keep tagging along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski May 9, 2014

    “She-Hulk” #4 may feel a bit like a transitional piece so early in the run, but there's no reason to skip out on it. Reading “She-Hulk” is like watching the darkly comic parts of great television like Mad Men. The characters are playing up the day-to-day absurdity of things that are really mundane. Dropping it into a superhero setting and cutting through it with trips to Latveria and Doom-bot brawls makes it all the more wonderfully absurd. Give this one a chance. It's quirky in all of the right ways. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 9, 2014

    "She-Hulk" #4 might not have been quite as great as the previous issues, but that merely means it's just very good. Four issues in, this series is still a winner, and I'm already dying to see what happens next. Soule and Pulido's work on "She-Hulk" is something you owe it to yourself to read. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen May 14, 2014

    More fun in theory than in execution, Soule is veering dangerously close to repetition in this series and needs to break out of it soon. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 9, 2014

    All in all, though, this issue has some strong sequences, but doesn't quite put it all together as a successful narrative for me, with the two halves of the story feeling a little bit underserved, and I'm troubled by the fact that Jennifer won her case, but still won't get paid or get the credit for her role in the Von Doom family drama. As we transition into the story of why someone is suing She-Hulk and several other superhumans, I'm hoping that we can balance the charm and with of the quiet conversations with the superhero stuff a little bit more satisfactorily, as we're leaning a bit more towards the interpersonal right now. All in all, though, She-Hulk #4 is a pretty good issue that looks really unique and amazing, with a perfect use of a guest star to move the story forward and help explain our character, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. I still say that Vibro and the Shocker together on the list of defendants is significant, which I hope we see next ish… Read Full Review

    Another fantastic issue of this book. Its breezy and fun, filled with so many lovely character moments you'd think writing such things was easy. Soule remains the writer to beat in 2014 and I think Pulido's art is the perfect fit for this book.

    This issue was a fun read and just as rousing as the first three. Soule's writing style is supreme and the art has finally won me over. I like the direction this series is taking and I can't wait until the next issue.

    Great main feature, but the epilogue sinks like a stone.

    ComicSniper Jul 13, 2014

    With the disappointing conclusion of this first arc of Soule's run, I suspect like-minded readers with high hopes for this series are seriously considering cutting bait. Soule's issues are filled with creative plot points and themes drawn from Jennifer's lawyer world. Each issue has included well-done mad cap humor perfectly complimented by Pulido's cartoon art style. But all four issues have fallen utterly flat in terms of dramatic elements and character development. It's as if Soule and his editor think it enough to throw a bunch of clever ideas on a wall, and some will stick and keep reader interest. It doesn't seem to occur to either of them to TELL A GREAT DRAMATIC STORY, and DEVELOP FACETED CHARACTERS READERS EMPATHIZE WITH. As a result, the scripts have an unfinished and rushed feel.
