    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Mar 5, 2014

    This book is more than whimsy, its more than simply happy, its reveling in its own surrealism and wonderful sense of bizarre humor. The art and the writing gel perfectly to give it a weird sense of humor. She-Hulk has always been at her best when shes having fun, and even better, as a lawyer and we are 2 for 2 on that being the focus of this title. Which is precisely where it needs to be.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Mar 10, 2014

    Charles Soule's star is quickly on the rise in the world of comics, but She-Hulk is making a very strong case for the standout book in his current output and a big part of that is Soule's charmingly retro take on Jennifer Walters. For too long have certain comics reveled in the darkness of what people have called "legitimate comics," but there is absolutely no room for that sort of thing in the pages of She-Hulk. This isn't to say that the comic is juvenile, but there is a certain freshness to seeing a creative team commit to just telling fun and engaging stories with characters that they are clearly having a blast working with. Its almost enough to make you want to break out your old Merry Marvel Marching Society badges. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Mar 7, 2014

    She-Hulk #2 is my pick of the week, maybe even of the month. Theres a quality these creators bring to the book that just isnt found anywhere else on the market. Marvel is facing a ton of competition from indie companies continuously upping their game, and this is exactly the sort of book they should be publishing to keep relevant. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Cal Cleary Mar 6, 2014

    This is just good comics, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Soule's scripts are sharp; he's a practicing lawyer, which gives the legal plots more heft than they normally might, but he's also typically a very character-driven writer, which grounds the legalese in relatable (super)human conflicts. Which is good! In many comics, plot is something that happens to the characters. The heroes are almost the antagonists of the story, since they are trying to stop the plot from moving forward. Soule is making sure the action ofShe-Hulk #2 stays focused on She-Hulk and her supporting cast, and stems from who they are and what they want. Like the first issue, She-Hulk #2 is snappy, character-driven, smart, and a joy to read. And it's making a strong case for itself as Marvel's best new ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Mar 7, 2014

    It's kind of crazy how good this book is after two issues, but with Charles Soule, Javier Pulido and Muntsa Vicente on the book, I guess it should be expected. I knew it would be beautiful, pop classic of a book with Pulido and Vicente, but Soule's writing gives it a lot of pop and fizz as well. This book, my friends, is the total package, and should be read by everyone. For real. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Mar 10, 2014

    Soule and Pulido have a magical formula here that combines everything that is fun and intoxicating about She-Hulk throughout the years and gives it a contemporary appeal. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Mar 10, 2014

    The bottom line is you should be reading this title. Soule and Pulido are crafting a great story that embraces what is best of the Marvel Universe without slavish devotion to continuity. The first two issues have been great done in one stories with an overarching plot. While it is still early in the calendar year, this is definitely a candidate for best new series and if Soule continues to produce this type of high quality work, he should be a shoe in as my pick for writer of the year. Soule and Pulido are crafting a story that years from now I think people will be pointing to as a must read gem. Don't miss this book! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Henry Varona Mar 11, 2014

    She-Hulk is not a book for everybody. If you don't like having fun, you won't like it. If you don't like kick-ass female leads, you won't like it. If you don't like tight and direct storytelling, you won't like it. But if you are a fan of books like Hawkeye, Fearless Defenders, and Harley Quinn, you'll absolutely love it. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Mar 7, 2014

    She – Hulk #2 continues to be a series with a huge amount of potential. It's fun, charming, and a lot more than what it looks on its surface. Charles Soule can comfortably add this series to his long list of hit comics because this reader will be coming back for more each month. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Mar 7, 2014

    Thanks (perhaps) to the success of the Hawkeye comic, Marvel has put the focus on character and story, rather than forcing a cosmic cataclysm into each issue. Good on 'em, I say. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 6, 2014

    Javier Pulido does his best work on the slice-of-life pages. She-Hulk sitting in her new office. She-Hulk drinking too much. She-Hulk stumbling into work hungover. His inspired cartooning brings such a sense of character and life to these moments it really makes the book shine. The fights look less impressive, although they never look bad. She-Hulk is a good looking comic, anyway you cut it. It's fun, fast and easy on the eyes. It's great to live in an age where Marvel puts out awesome, unique comics like this. You could definitely do worse in a monthly superhero comic. Read Full Review

    Not your traditional superhero book, but a very worthy superhero book all the same, perhaps all the more so because of its very lack of tradition. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brendan McGuirk Mar 5, 2014

    Manhattan is a place to work, but Brooklyn is a place to live. Or, better yet, a place to work out of a home-office. Pulido, Soule, and Vicente's She-Hulk is funny, smart and professional. It's a book with the best kind of broad appeal. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 5, 2014

    She-Hulk #2 is a solid issue of the series that could potentially be hampered by artwork that'll be really hit or miss for the audience (and even then, the art still has problems). The quality of the writing is still good and the direction for the series is promising. I do look forward to seeing where this comic will go in the future. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 8, 2014

    I loved the first issue of the new She-Hulk series, and this second issue seems to keep the ball rolling smoothly. Soule definitely has a unique vision for this series, and he seems to have the pluck and skill to see it through. We are all the better for that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Mar 7, 2014

    Soule and Pulido's "She-Hulk" is one of the sunniest and most promising new titles on the stands. It's good to see a lead female who doesn't run on angst or operate in a moral gray zone. More importantly, the story shines due to Soule and Pulido's light humor and casual, deft pacing. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 8, 2014

    In the late 1990s, my boss at Gatekeeper Hobbies (Huntoon & Gage, TOPEKA!) used to joke that any book I was super-enthusiastic about was guaranteed not to break 18 issues, an accusation that had more than just a grain of truth at the center, which makes me worry about this comic's longevity. Then again, in Marvel's new "2 years then relaunch a new volume" world, perhaps that's no longer a concern? Either way, I enjoyed this issue even more than #1 (which, as you might have surmised, was a fun read too), and I want to read more, if only to see Pulido's new style evolve. She-Hulk #2 is clearly not meant to be everybody's cup of tea, but it's a good read with some lovely character interactions and art that wants to push boundaries while having fun. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 17, 2014

    Although things don't exactly go smoothly, the much-needed victory gives She-Hulk exactly what she needed as the misadventures of the lawyering super-hero continue. And by the end of the issue our heroine has her first new client: the son of Victor von Doom. Worth a look. Read Full Review
