    Garron delivers some brilliant visuals throughout the issue. The action is fantastic and the character moments are fantastic in their detail. Read Full Review

    Avengers #48 shows off the new Winter Hulk and she's very underwhelming. She's essentially a silent, re-skinned version of the current She-Hulk but blonde. The other major character is Gorilla Man and he is similarly underwhelming. He's a huge blabber mouth in this comic and readers will likely want him to stop talking before finishing it. The Winter Hulk serves mainly as a plot device for the real villains while the Avengers are waiting to show up and actually do something in the next issue. Read Full Review

    You do come out of this understanding more of the lengths the Red Room went to to takeover She-Hulk, and the layering of systems at work does make her transformation believable, but what the book hasn't convinced me of yet is the why we're doing this at all. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 1, 2021

    Avengers #48 has its heart in the right place, but it mostly doesn't work. She-Hulk as the Winter Hulk could work in theory, but it reduces her to an unfeeling and uninteresting machine. Gorilla-Man remains difficult to care about as well, leaving the issue devoid of interesting characters or personalities to cling to. For an ensemble series, things will pick up with the Avengers are reintroduced, but this issue serves as a disappointing gap. Read Full Review
