    Go out and buy this series. I can nearly guarantee that youll love it, and if you dont, its just a fun new type of book from Marvel. While the ending could have had a little fleshing out, on the whole it was such a fun ride. I just wish it didnt have to end now. Read Full Review

    As the writer states in his farewell letter, this isn't the last we will see of Jennifer Walters. She will be back on shelves soon in the upcoming A-Force and surely, at least at some point in the future, another solo series. Keeping that in mind, it is still hard to let She-Hulk go. Charles Soule, Javier Pulido, and Muntsa Vicente took a character and introduced her to a new legion of fans that were hungry for a title just like this one. She-Hulk was bold, different and a title that hit shelves at exactly the right time. She-Hulk #12 continues that streak of creative singularity and sends Team Jen off with a smile and a feeling that everything will be okay in their world. Someone once said that the best endings just feel like beginnings, and that's what She-Hulk #12 delivers - an ending that could very well lead to something bigger and better for Jen. And that is exactly what she deserves. Read Full Review

    Hopefully this won't be the last attempt to bring the She-Hulk to her own series. A series about a brilliant, sexy, incredibly powerful woman who happens to be green? Surely there must be a creative team out there who can make that work. Read Full Review

    The story itself has a good balance of seriousness and playful fun. Charles Soule has really shone with this run, and his mix and match of the fantastic and the humorous makes this issue a fitting end. Javier Pulido brings a unique cartoonish style to the proceedings, while Muntsa Vicente gives the characters a colourful feel. The characters are the focus of the art, while the backgrounds are mostly empty, filled in with colour to depict the mood. Indeed, near the end there is a lovely 2-page spread of She-Hulk, looking exceptionally powerful as she moves to trash Nightwatch. With no background to distract, it gives an awesome image to gaze upon. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 18, 2015

    It's unfortunate this book never found the audience some of its contemporaries have, but at least Soule was able to wrap up his original 12-issue storyline as intended. This issue provides a fitting cap to the mystery of the Blue File and this stage in Jen Walter's career. Unfortunately, the final sequence loses a lot of its emotional punch as the book halfheartedly sets up another case for our heroes that will never play out in these pages. Still, this is a worthy sendoff for the big green heroine. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 21, 2015

    She-Hulk #12 is a fitting, albeit bittersweet, conclusion to this little series that couldn't. It's got a healthy dose of superhero action, a few twists, a big reveal about the villain's plan, and a quality fight for our star. I might be a little disappointed that the finale didn't take place in a courtroom, but maybe that's just me (and we had one of those only a few issues ago). Soule's characters are as strong as ever, and his villain, Nightwatch, is really chilling. I wish we'd get to see more of him. But this is the end. At least we went out having fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 23, 2015

    The moral of the Blue File case is "don't fake it to make it." Heroes earn their name, work hard and don't kill people. Saccharine, but not bad words to live by, like most classic morals. Soule and Pulido's "She-Hulk" has been all about meaningful work, whether it's in the courtroom or in hand-to-hand combat. The final scene is wonderful for its hyperactive humor, including a bizarre but very funny cameo appearance by Howard the Duck and for the goodbye shot of the team looking out to the Brooklyn Bridge and to the future. Soule, Pulido and Vicente's "She-Hulk" will be remembered and missed. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Adam Alamo Feb 23, 2015

    The outpouring of support received after the series end was announced was huge and in my opinion rightfully so. Charles Soule breathed new life into She-Hulk and gave us a cast of interesting supporting characters that I want to learn more about. I don't know what's going to happen to She-Hulk moving forward, but it's going to be tough to top this current run and creative team for me. Still, I'd like to see someone try to do it, rather than closing the book on She-Hulk like she did with the Blue File. I couldn't agree more with She-Hulk at the end of this issue when she said "see you in court." I most certainly do want to see more of She-Hulk in the future, both in and out of court.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 18, 2015

    The issues pacing troubles may be the fault of the title ending, but theyre impossible to overlook entirely. However, they also are far from ruining a solid, satisfying final issue in what was a very daring, and all too brief series. Theres a massive shake-up on the horizon, and itd be great to see this one make a comeback, but until then this is as good of an ending as one could hope for to a great run for an underappreciated character.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 24, 2015

    Now that we're on the final issue, what's my take on the series as a whole? Soule started out with a killer idea: focusing on She-Hulk as lawyer, with the extra pizzazz that simultaneously being a superhero could add to the job. But the few cases she took on usually involved only superficial (albeit accurate) legalities, and the one that went whole-hog legal drama was too transparent to be groundbreaking. Soule simply had a hard time integrating Jen's life as a superhero and as a lawyer together. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Feb 19, 2015

    She-Hulk #12 was a deeply disappointing and underwhelming finale to this series. Even if it was rushed at the end due to cancellation, everything about the comic feels so lackluster. The story is weak and contrived, She-Hulk herself barely gets to do anything in the issue, the writing is underwhelming, and the artwork leaves so much to be desired. She-Hulk is a character who deserved more than this rushed conclusion, especially after all the praise it got this past year. Marvel really dropped the ball on this one. Read Full Review
