She-Hulk #6 continues the slice-of-life story of Jennifer Walters as she wrestles with what to wear on “Eat Cake In Fancy Dresses” Wednesday, a demanding boss, and Jack of Hearts’ insecurity.
Is It Good?
It’s best if you call She-Hulk #6 exactly what it is – a slice-of-life comic. There is no plot. There is no goal, and there is no journey. She-Hulk is simply existing and taking life as it comes, one day at a time.
In this issue, Rowel has She-Hulk eat cake with Patsy Walker as the latter hands over the Avengers file on Jack of Hearts’ past. Jennifer has a non-serious meeting with Nightcrawler to discuss taking over the legal administration for Krakoa. And Jack of Heart’s diminishing powers paves the way for romance to blossom.
If you’re into slice-of-life comics that don’t have any destination in mind, have as much dramatic punch as an undernourished kitten, and meet the mandatory requirement of devoting at least half the panels to eating and scenes with food, this is the comic for you.
For everyone else who fondly remembers She-Hulk as a contributing member of the Avengers, especially during the Byrne era, this comic is an abomination (no pun intended).
The art is fine for what it is. Mareca demonstrates a solid grasp of characters engaged in mostly polite conversation, and Renzi manages to avoid his chronic penchant for overusing pinks and purples with some decent coloring.

She-Hulk #6 works best if you treat this comic for what it is – a slice-of-life comic unconcerned with solving Jack of Heart’s resurrection mystery, drama, or a basic plot. The only thing that matters is showing Jennifer Walters living her best life. If that’s good enough for her, that’s good enough for you.
