She-Hulk fails to grab me after 12 issues. It has continued to be a slow burn, even when it's unnecessary, like in this issue. Page space is wasted here and there so that, at the end of the day, not much happens. And I'm not left wanting more.

I love it. I love it. I love it.

This is going to be an emotional story arc for Thor and Marvel fans as a whole. Jason Aron is the best Thor writer. If this story needs to be told then I am glad he is at the helm because anyone else could end up spoiling everything. The art is huge in this issue and colors explode off the page. Throg really could be a great mini-story in himself. There more

Another very good issue. Not a war against each other like I feared at First in the sollicitation.
I like each team Waid propose here & how each of them resolve the problem they have in hand.
The same one but in different part of the globe, & with different approach.
I find it smart to separate both Spider Men. And I find very nice the touch about Viv & Vision relationship.
