Marvel Entertainment loves synergy. With Kevin Feige now the CCO of Marvel Entertainment, that means The-One-Above-All not only oversees Marvel Studios, but also Marvel Comics and can make sure the two departments are coordinating with peak synergy. In this case, that means that Marvel Comics will be launching a new She-Hulk series early next year to get the character back in the limelight ahead of the Disney Plus streaming series also slated for 2022.
Jennifer Walters has served as an Avenger in Jason Aaron’s 49-issue run on the team book and her adventures with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have continued what has been a challenging period for the characters since she was killed by Thanos in 2016’s Civil War II. Now writer Rainbow Rowell and artist Roge Antonio will put Jennifer at the center of her own title for the first time since Mariko Tamaki’s 2016 Hulk series when She-Hulk #1 hits your LCS January 12th. The new series will see Jen “embark on a journey that heralds back to her fan-favorite solo adventures of the past while embracing a fresh new future for the character.”
Rowell, who has been writing Runaways for Marvel since 2017, is excited to put her spin on the longtime fan favorite:
She-Hulk is the best of the best. She’s smart, she’s funny—and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.
The series will take Walters back to the courtroom and into the lives of some prior acquaintances, both friend and foe with last page of the first issue taking Jen “down a road she’s never traveled that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel universe.“
