Add up all those issues of She-Hulk and you’ll get to 175 with issue #12 of the latest series, which arrives in April. Writer Rainbow Rowell and artist Andrés Genolet, who worked together on Runaways, will reunite to celebrate the milestone.
The doubled-sized issue that will introduce a new villain, The Scoundrel, into Jennifer Walters’ already complicated life.
“Every issue that I get to write She-Hulk is a delight—but I’m especially honored to escort her to her 175th issue,” Rowell told Marvel.com. “One of things we’ve focused on is building up Jen’s narrative support structure… Giving her friends, colleagues, a love interest, and her very own antagonists. The Scoundrel is an adversary tailor-made for Jennifer Walters. A lot of things come easily for Jen. Nothing about the Scoundrel is easy.”
In addition, issue #175 will also feature several bonus stories by as-yet-unrevealed creative teams.
Created by Stan Lee and John Buscema, She-Hulk first appeared in the first issue of her first series, Savage She-Hulk, in 1980. It ran for 25 issues, and She-Hulk would go on to appear in Avengers and Fantastic Four, as well as several Marvel graphic novels, before returning to our own solo adventures in The Sensational She-Hulk in 1989, with most of the issues written and drawn by John Byrne. It would be followed by the Dan Slott-written She-Hulk in 2004 and the Charles Soule/Javier Pulido series in 2014. Jennifer Walters also starred in the Hulk series from 2016-2018, during the years when she was grey and less in control than she had been portrayed previously. She eventually returned to her fun, green self before headlining her current series by Rowell.
Look for She-Hulk #175 in stores on April 19.
