    Still not totally sold on Grey She-Hulk, but I do like that Hellcat keeps coming around. ...

    I'm definitely happy as new Marvel comics can move further out from Civil War II and get back to like, other things. (Although I do appreciate seeing Jen's ongoing journey with PTSD and trauma recovery! But I'm also glad for a return to the She-Hulk blend of sass/shenanigans [feat Hell...

    I'm not a big fan of this rebooted Jennifer Walters character; it's not bad, just not nearly as good as it once was. The book is well-written, but the situation is unappealing. This second book gets a bit overly silly with a plot centered around cake-baking-videos, which is an unfortun...

    I am very much a fan of Mariko Tamaki, indie comics artist and fiction writer (and more) who is now working on Supergirl-Being Super, She-Hulk, and so much more in comics. I liked the first volume of this and like the second less well. I like Jen's character and the support group for h...

    The backup story was annoying. Well actually the breaking the wall and talking to the reader and the romance channel announcer was annoying - the actual story wasn't horrible. But the main story. It's like the hint of who Jen Walters is, is inescapable. And makes for an interesting sto...

    2.5 stars | I have so much love for the first volume in the series, so of course I had high expectations going into it, but this second installment was simply not good. The story-arc is all over the place and it lacks the dept the first one has (there are barely any mentions of her pts...

    The plot of this skinny TPB of 5 issues sounds really adorable and potent: Jen Walters aka She-Hulk loves watching a super-gay YouTube show about baking cakes. While eating a pre-made matcha cake (green, duh) on a livestream, the beloved host suddenly transforms into a huge, green mons...

    Despite the sophomore slump that many GR reviewers talked about with this second trade, I generally liked it. It wasn?t as deep and meaningful a philosophical examination of the psyche like the first trade was. Instead it was like another stage of grief - not just the anger but reach...

    Arrrgh! I was so excited to read Let Them Eat Cake and I wish I could give it five stars, but unfortunately there were a couple of problems that made me want to HULK SMASH everything. Don't get me wrong?I'm a major fan of this She-Hulk reboot. As with the first volume, I loved th...

    Really more a 3.5 Good to have gay representation. Nice to have there be no doubt a gay guy deserves to be rescued. This series is doing a good job of passing the Bechdel test. Points off for inexplicably having Jen go by "Hulk" when the title of the book is still "She-Hulk." And...

    The title arc--"Let Them Eat Cake"--consisting of issues 7-10 is great. Jen is dealing with her grief and with the literal transformation of its expression now that she is a much more Bruce like Hulk (on the surface at least, I still feel like we're going to end up finding out some stu...

    This one returns to a similar theme of dealing with trauma in a four-issue arc. Then the final issue is a stand-alone that feels way more Deadpool fourth-wall breaking comedy, which is 180 degrees from the previous issue. So the primary story was not as strong as the opening story, and...

    This volume continues the best comics about post-traumatic stress disorder being published right now. Probably the only one being published right now. After the events of the last volume, Jennifer Walters is no longer ignoring her ptsd, though she is not back to being a superhero f...

    While this volume treats She-Hulk Jennifer Walters somewhat better, she is still a victim unable to cope with anger (or was it fear or hormones or some woman body issues?) It is just like another guy writing a woman he does not understand and treats the character like a caricature and ...

    Nope, nope, too dumb. She-Hulk fights a couple rubes who poison a Youtube chef and turn him into a monster. Thus, She-Hulk gets to examine how she herself has been turned into a monster. I mean, that part isn't so dumb, but it reads like a one-issue side story stretched to four issues....

    In an unusual conjunction of my hobbies, life, and day job, the lead story here is a superhero comic, about reaching an accomodation with one's inner monster, set around a niche programme about making cakes. That's followed by a cheerfully fourth-wall-breaking story of an exceptionally...

    It was okay. In a way I cant take this entire volume serious which is evident by the last issue where Jen breaks the fourth wall on "date night." For the majority of the volume, the bad guy was like a make shift Abomination. It wasnt all that bad of a villain. Here and there Jen Walter...

    Tonally, I feel like we've a had a major lift from the first volume to this one; the first one was explicitly dark for our heroine, in this one, we've got more of a "how do use this situation" vibe going on, and actual bad guys to confront. Still present is rumination on what it means ...

    Wow, this was a huge disappointment after the great first volume. That was all psychological and introspective and character-focused and this one is a fight against a green blobby guy. There should have been some subtext about becoming monsters and not controlling oneself and all of...

    This volume lost some of the darkness of its predecessor, taking the focus off Jen's past trauma to focus on her sense of superhero responsibility. I didn't mind; the first volume was a bit much for me, especially without knowing the backstory, and Jen's struggle still comes through he...

    Wow, this was terrible! I don't know what happened here. The first volume was incredible thoughtful, and a creative exploration of depression and trauma. This volume, was almost unreadably banal and filled with leaps of logic in a superhero story that failed in just about every way a s...

    Jennifer Walters is still coming to grips with her gray Hulk form, but support groups can only help so much. When a aspiring chef livestreams his most recent attempt at a cake, he is poisoned by "monster juice" as a prank from two of his crew, changing him into something close to Abomi...

    I'm still low-key enjoying this series, though this volume is a little too much a retread of the first. Once again, the center of Jennifer's attention is a person who is going through problems that reflect her own. Last time it was physical trauma, this time it is involuntarily becomin...

    Boy, this book quickly turned into a clunker. The first arc was great, well thought out story, fantastic pacing. This reminded me of all those other run of the mill Marvel books with poor art that don't make it past issue 12. There were 4 artists on 5 issues ranging from "meh" to give ...

    Damn. What happened? The first volume of Tamaki?s She-Hulk was one of my favorite comics of the last year. It was smart, moody, understated, a thoughtful depiction of a person going through trauma. This? This was like when Gail Simone?s Batgirl got suddenly replaced by that Batgirl...

    The most compelling part of this series for me is Jen's recovery story. Tamaki does a wonderful job of portraying Jen's life after CW II without making it seem like there's a "miracle cure". She attends support groups, she has her coping techniques to manage anxiety and this series sho...
