    The Leader is an unironic classic villain, spouting lines like "This will be your undoing." Vintage Leader. In the end, Jennifer Walters comes to a realization that, to be honest, she should have had months ago. Read Full Review

    In the end, Jennifer makes some real character progression, finally coming to a realization about needing help to overcome what she is currently dealing with. The realization is handled well and feels earned. I was disappointed to hear that Tamaki’s run was coming to a close but I feel as though she has a nice conclusion in store for us. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 15, 2018

    I get that it's about the battle inside, and I love the use of Patsy Walker in these pages. I even like the reveal in the last couple of pages, giving us a hint as to where things are going, but much of the issue seems to labor without a clear purpose. Even the threat of The Leader doesn't feel particularly threatening, leaving She-Hulk #161 a bit disappointing, even with the positive aspects of story and Jennifer's character in these pages.

    This issue is most likely the victim of bad news. Having to wrap-up an arc and quickly transition to your series finale all of a sudden doesn't usually make for a compelling comic book. Read Full Review

    She Hulk #161's saving grace is its cliffhanger, which will hopefully lead to Jen taking a deep dive back into the psychological story that originally got me hooked. Read Full Review
