The best character ever is back in her own series and about to glam up the whole Marvel Universe! Jennifer Walters, A.K.A. the Sensational She-Hulk, is no longer savage and needs to put her life back together. She's got a career to rebuild, friends to reconnect with (and maybe represent in a court of law) and enemies to... well, she may not want to connect with them, but they are DEFINITELY going to connect with her. And the last page of this first issue is going to send Jen down a road she's never traveled and that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel Universe.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 26, 2022

    She-Hulk has been around for decades. Rowell and Antnio have found a rhythm and form for her that honors where she's been before and recognizes what works about the character without feeling like too much of a retread for readers who have known Jen for decades. A very appealing opening to a new chapter in Jen's life.  Read Full Review

    If you're looking for something new, inviting, and cute, SHE-HULK #1 is definitely for you. I was genuinely shocked as to how much I liked this opening installment. Readers will leave SHE-HULK #1 feeling almost endeared towards Jennifer Walters. And to those that have followed Rowell, she does a masterful job writing smart and sensitive characters which is exactly what SHE-HULK needs right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jan 17, 2022

    She-Hulks back in her very own ongoing, and so far its off to a very good start. Rainbow Rowell doesnt shy away from using past continuity to enrich the story, but you its not necessary for you to have read those books to understand whats going on. Rowell has a nice sense of timing with this issue, and doesnt shy away from delivering the humor bits. Toss in the absolutely kitschy art from Antnio, and this book could be the book to watch.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 19, 2022

    She-Hulk #1 is a fantastic debut that has such a focus and awareness of the character. I presents a superhero that is easy to relate to, especially if you're getting up there in age. It's my favorite debut so far this year. Read Full Review

    GWW - Brian Villar Jan 17, 2022

    Overall the issue is fun and helps set up the story for new and old readers. With She-Hulk, having this duality between the Hulk and Jen Walters, balancing that dynamic is complex. Rowell and Antonio can have fun and understand the difference between them. The issue dramatically references and reinforces those differences, creating an excellent start to a She-Hulk comic.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jan 19, 2022

    She-Hulk #1 effectively establishes Jen Walters' new lease on life and offers newcomers a welcome jumping on point to her adventures. While not as overtly humorous as previous She-Hulk series, Rowell's writing captures Shulkie's personality well enough and the artwork by Antonio and Renzi is worth the price of admission alone. This is a strong title for a strong character. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jan 21, 2022

    She-Hulk #1 is the return to form that fans have been waiting to see for years. Rainbow Rowell and Roge Antonio spend twenty pages reminding you what you like about the character, all the while utilizing their own strengths as creators to amplify that love even more. It's fairly light on plot, but that shouldn't be enough to scare any fan of the character away. This is one to keep both eyes on. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 22, 2022

    I was very much looking forward to this series, and this first issue does not disappoint. Fun writing and great art work together to deliver a nigh perfect issue of set-up and status quo introduction. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jan 18, 2022

    Final ThoughtsShe-Hulk #1 successfully pulls off a '90s-style, light and airy tone showing how the main character is down-on-her-luck in every way possible. While the tone is inoffensively pleasant, this first issue is nothing more than a decompressed prologue that doesn't get to the heart of the story until the last page. It's the cotton candy of adventure stories, and maybe that's enough for She-Hulk fans who've waited for her return to form. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jan 19, 2022

    First and foremost, this new run of She-Hulk seems laser-focused on bringing Jen back to basics. After years of inconsistent characterization and experimental new takes of varying success, the Shulkie fans know and love is more recognizable than ever in this series. From a requisite appearance from Titania to the return of a major figure from the beloved Dan Slott run, writer Rainbow Rowell firmly has Jen back in the Ally McBeal-esque mode her fans prefer.

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jan 19, 2022

    Despite starting with a poorly paced issue relying far too much on a single, inconsequential sequence, it still provides much to enjoy in its sense of style. There's plenty of potential to be found in this debut, let's just hope that it focuses on a story worth following before the end of She-Hulk #2. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Marina Z. Jan 17, 2022

    This could have been an amazing place for new fans to jump in, and old fans to fall more in love with She-Hulk. But were it not for the art, this book would have been a total dud. Read Full Review
