    The buildup in this case is agonizing, particularly with the last pages reveal. A big part of that is because no ones life is actually on the line, so the case truly could go in either direction since its not a matter of a character living or dying. I have no idea how this can end or what the resolution will be, but I cant WAIT to see what it is as there are so many ways to do right by it in so many different directions. Read Full Review

    Well, sometimes, the comics with remarkable storytelling only appeal to a select few and fail to capture the imagination of the masses. I read all of the previous issues in this run and judging by my own opinion of the character, I'm not surprised of its short shelf life. However, I feel She-Hulk deserves to second chance to make a first impression. Read Full Review

    The exploration of Captain America's status, regrets, and mortality were sound themes to match with Jen's wit and legal smarts. Soule and Pulido has always been bursting with potential and talent, and it's good to see that come to fruition. It's been fun all along to watch the team develop Jen and her world through details and dialogue, but this She-Hulk run has unfolded in fits and starts. I loved She-Hulk #8, but I half expected She-Hulk #9 to be a letdown, because Soule hasn't consistently held stories together well across multiple issues. Instead, the opposite happened. This second issue is strong and this arc feels even stronger than I hoped it would be. Readers new, old and lapsed should get in on this show while they still can. Read Full Review

    It feels like a conclusion is coming up next month, but as far as middle issues go, Soule has given us enough lawyer flair to make this worth a read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 23, 2014

    She-Hulk #9 is a great issue, which makes it even more of a shame that this book is coming to an end. The writing and characterization on the book are just fantastic and really make this story so much fun and engaging to read. Its only real downfall that still plagues to the book to this day is the artwork that has a difficult time depicting its characters. Regardless, She-Hulk is definitely worth your time.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 27, 2014

    "She-Hulk" #9 is another fun comic in a great series, and it's all the more frustrating to know that it's going away soon. Hopefully Soule and Pulido will get to reunite after this series ends (or even shift to a series of "She-Hulk" mini-series?), because this book is a great read. We may only have three more issues to go, but I bet I'm not the only one who's still looking forward to what's yet to come. If this issue is any indication, it'll be a blast. Read Full Review

    At least we had issues like She-Hulk #9 to enjoy while we could. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Oct 23, 2014

    While the new issue is still pretty solid, it does lean a little too heavy on the legal side of She-Hulk's life. Don't read that wrong; it's extremely interesting stuff. It just drags a little bit and feels like it runs a bit too long. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Oct 27, 2014

    The issue is a bit of a slog, but Javier Pulido and Munsta Vicente make it a visually interesting slog. Their work pops off the page in the courtoom, switches gears to the somber tone of the flashbacks, the flips back for some casual superhero fare. The best parts are the little bits of visual humour he's been channeling in his work from issue 1. At this point, Pulidohas perfected Jen's rage-face which is really all you need to make a She-Hulk book work. His dense panel grids are another hugely enjoyable trademark of the series. His work is clean enough to keep pages clean while he fills in dozens of panels at a time. Pulido is a master, plain and simple. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Oct 26, 2014

    All of this being said, as the middle chapter of a three-parter, there's not a terrible amount to hang one's hat on beyond these individual achievements. On its own merits, it does offer some insight into a typical day for Jennifer Walters, PLLC but the story is far from self-contained. It's a conceptually intriguing tale but definitely served better in its greater context and certainly worth re-examining in a larger collected format. Read Full Review
