She-Hulk #7 continues Jennifer Walters’s adventure by eating breakfast, taking a meeting at work, and visiting a recent acquaintance.
Is It Good?
That blurb above is not a joke. It’s an accurate description of what goes on in this comic. Here are the details:
Jen and Jack spend a leisurely morning together after their first night together. They drink coffee, eat toast, and talk about nothing pressing. Whatever mystery surrounds Jack’s return is treated without a single ounce of urgency or dramatic tension.
Next, Jen takes a secret meeting at the office, arranged by Awesome Andy. A Doombot, no longer under Dr. Doom’s control, is fighting prosecution by a NY D.A. who wants to apply Dr. Doom’s criminal charges to the Doombot, even though the Doombot is provably NOT Dr. Doom. Nothing about this case makes sense or relates to how the law works, and it has no bearing on the story of Jack’s return.
Later, Jen decides to pay a visit to April and Mark – the couple she met in the park when Mark’s mindless rampage turned into a Hulk-sized tussle. Here, at least, something happens. The visit goes badly, and it seems Mark and April have something to do with Jack’s return. In other words, the story moves forward by complete chance.
Maresca’s art is solid. There’s not much to show off with the art since not much is happening in the issue, but at least the characters look good while sitting around and talking about nothing in particular.

She-Hulk #7 continues the trend of the entire series by doing nothing in particular. Surprisingly, the story takes a step or two forward in the last page, but everything about this issue is time-wasting, boring fluff.
