    Juan Bobillo has a great eye when it comes to delivering the amusing moments of the issue, as the art does a wonderful job of capturing the surreal goofiness of the hospital ward where Marvel's heaviest hitters are recovering from their battles against the Champion. I also enjoyed the cartoonish delivery of the big impact scene where She-Hulk reveals her new bulked up status, as essentially it looks like a little kid pretending her water wings are muscles. The various expressions of the people receiving the punches in the ring are also quite entertaining, as it's hard to take the fights too seriously when we get a look at those comical expressions. My only real quibbles with the art are the visual takes that he has on certain characters, as Beta-Ray Bill is far too scrawny, and his Thing also left a bit to be desired. Still, the art is very successful at delivering the humour, and this is the most important element an artist can bring to this title. Read Full Review

    It doesn't work. You cannot give a good reason for any super-hero defending such an asinine idea. I don't know how much of She-Hulk was Slott's idea or by The Big Stupid Event committee edict. I'd like to believe that Slott was smart enough to see the inappropriateness of the plot. I'm sure if he wanted to raise the issue of a woman's right to choose or make a statement about the death of Dr. Slepian, he would have done so in a much more sensitive and stronger story. I think this is another case of the "White Power!" Superman tee-shirt behind advertised in Previews. Somebody, in this case Marvel's Big Stupid Event planning committee, wasn't thinking.
