Last August Marvel teased a timeline of titles coming at the end of 2021 and into 2022 that included a new She-Hulk series from Rainbow Rowell and Rogê Antônio. Today the publisher released more information about the new She-Hulk ongoing series which sees the Jade Giantess abandoning her current rage-filled self as seen in the current Avengers title return to practicing law in defense.
The premiere issue will feature two main covers, one by Jen Bartel and another by Adam Hughes.
Here’s how Marvel describes the She-Hulk ongoing series:
Following her transformative time in Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS, She-Hulk is eager to put her rage-filled days behind her and return to practicing law in defense of the innocent. She’s got a career to rebuild, friends to reconnect with (and maybe represent in a court of law) and enemies to…well, she may not want to connect with them, but they are DEFINITELY going to connect with her. And when a friend from her past comes knocking with a mystery she can’t resist, she’ll quickly be back to bashing. The last page of this debut issue is going to send Jen down a road she’s never traveled, one that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel Universe.
Considering the She-Hulk Disney+ original series starring Tatiana Maslany as the titular character and Jameela Jamil as the villainous Titania, debuting a new She-Hulk comic is a no-brainer. The previous She-Hulk book launched out of the Civil War 2 event in 2016 from writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Nicol Leon was a decidedly darker book than previous iterations and saw Jennifer Walters deal with the trauma and death of losing her cousin Bruce Banner. It seems safe to assume this new Shulkie book won’t be nearly as dark and heavy.
In the announcement, Rowell and Antônio described working on a new She-Hulk series.
“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “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.”
“I’m very excited and feel honored to be a part of this exciting new phase of She-Hulk,” Antônio said. “Working with Rainbow Rowell has been inspiring and it’s amazing how she lets her passion for the character shine through on every page. I hope the fans have as much fun reading as I’m having illustrating these new adventures.”
Look for She-Hulk #1 to arrive in stores on January 12, 2022.
