Lighthearted and fun.

Not so much?


Mystique of a superhero is replaced with the life of a normal girl.


Final Fiendish Findings?

The She-Hulk Diaries is just a really fun read. Everything about Jennifer Walters is just so darn relatable – she is a normal girl, doing her best to find her way in a messed up world. And Shulky? She’s the party animal inside all of us – brassy, loud, sexy, and completely unapologetic. It’s the perfect combination of sugar and spice, and a great read for Marvel fans old and new.

Full Fiendish Findings...
 
 

It ain’t easy being green.

Jennifer Walters is a highly successful lawyer who just can’t seem to hold on to a job. She’s having a few issues in the boyfriend and apartment side of things too. See, Jennifer is polite,  reserved, and well behaved – but her alter ego, She-Hulk, is most definitely not – and Shulky has burned a lot of bridges. But Jennifer has a plan – a resolution, in fact – that is going to get her derailed life back on track.

Marta Acosta brings a lighthearted look into the surprisingly average life of a superhero. The She-Hulk Diaries pick up where most superhero tales leave off – the real life portion of things. And life isn’t all that easy for Jennifer Walters. She-Hulk, being the Amazonian hunk of gorgeous party animal that she is, tends to cause an awful lot of damage to Jennifer’s more demure wardrobe. And as much as the public adores Shulky’s wild ways, no one wants to stick around to clean up her messes – so Jennifer is left to pick up the pieces, literally or figuratively. So when Shulky is demoted to local crimestopper, Jen feels now is the perfect time to shelve her alter ego for a while, and concentrate on making her life the way she wants it to be.

Nothing is ever that easy, of course, and everything from old flames to catty co-workers to evil doctors stands in the way of Jen’s happiness. The Avengers mansion has closed its doors to her, she keeps getting bills for the damage she causes when she saves the world, and the man she loves is engaged to another woman. But it’s not all bad; old friends are still around to lend a hand (or an ear), her best friend has always got her back, and all of New York is just plain getting nicer. One might even say suspiciously nicer. She may not have the life she always dreamed of, but one thing’s for sure – things are about to get interesting.

The She-Hulk Diaries is just a really fun read. Everything about Jennifer Walters is just so darn relatable – she is a normal girl, doing her best to find her way in a messed up world. And Shulky? She’s the party animal inside all of us – brassy, loud, sexy, and completely unapologetic. It’s the perfect combination of sugar and spice, and a great read for Marvel fans old and new.
