'After I came to Marvel very happily, and did what I think was a quite successful run on Fantastic Four, I was very proud of it and my work with Leonard Kirk -- and you can’t get more “Marvel Superhero” than either the Avengers or the Fantastic Four. So going back to that slightly more darker and more adult -- and I’m a little wary of using that word, because it has the connotation that that [Scarlet Witch] is not for children, and it’s definitely the sort of book anybody could read -- but that slightly more sophisticated feel of those more interesting stories that are often at the corners of the Marvel universe. I’m really, really enjoying that, and it’s definitely something that suits my writing.' -- James Robinson

"I know from experience that if you’re the only person your friends know who works in the law, then they call you for every legal problem they experience, even if it has nothing to do with your specialty. Lawyers are generally hyper-focused on one practice area or another, just like a person with a medical degree might specialize in brain surgery or podiatry or whatever. For whatever reason, though, many folks don’t seem to make the same distinction with attorneys. Applying that logic to She-Hulk, it just made sense to me that if she hung out a shingle, she’d be getting calls from all over the place. Seemed like a nice engine for a series." -- Charles Soule

"When I'm working in the Marvel Universe, I like to deconstruct its concepts, to some degree. She-Hulk has plenty of examples of that - how could it work if someone wanted to emigrate from Latveria to the United States, for example." -- Charles Soule

'It can certainly be a challenge sometimes to make sure the book remains exciting despite all the chatter, but fortunately, I've got a few not-so-secret weapons -- Javier Pulido, Muntsa Vicente and, as you'll all soon see, Ron Wimberly. All of the artists on the book are able to take scenes that could be "shot" in relatively static ways and liven them up to an extraordinary degree.' -- Charles Soule

Interviewer: In our initial interview you talked about Javier Pulido's sense of design and page layouts. How has that manifested in some of the pages you've seen so far? Are there some sequences from the first couple issues that you were especially impressed by?

Charles Soule: Literally every sequence, and that isn't puffery. Javier is brilliant -- he's a pure storyteller, and he takes every one of my ideas and makes them more interesting. He's told me repeatedly that all he needs is a good story. Give him that, and he can work miracles, and it's certainly been the case on "She-Hulk." Honestly, my scripts are pretty tight -- or at least I think so until Javier gets his hands on them. He tends to break them apart a little and reconfigure the paneling in large and small ways to make something new that's a killer synthesis of both of our takes. Just a true collaboration.

"This [book] is very personal to me, considering my legal background -- Jen's office in Dumbo, Brooklyn is in the same building as my office. It would have been rough if people hated it." -- Charles Soule

In which She-Hulk hires a fellow Avenger for her new law practice...

"I've been practicing law for quite a while now - and I think that it would be silly of me not to bring that experience to writing a character with a law degree. The way it plays out is pretty fun, I think. I get to sort of write the Marvel Universe version of my own life." -- Charles Soule

I normally wait a month before posting from a new issue so that I can put up more than four pages, but I enjoyed this first issue so much that I didn't. That was a month ago, though. Now that four weeks have passed, here's the full seven pages from the comic.



"Well, this is one of those funny situations where the depiction of lawyers in pop culture comes up against my own experience as an attorney. The 'detective' side of things sort of happens, but generally it's executed by logging into a legal research system and slogging through tons of old case law. But, I am not only an attorney, I am also a writer, which means I know that reality sometimes has to take a step back to allow for some drama." -- Charles Soule

I actually thought the last couple issues of ASM were a bit decent--Peter struggling with the people dying around him, the "Human Torch" memorial issue and even the Flash!Venom prelude. In retrospect, they were all absent of one thing--the Embodiment of Evil known as Carlie Cooper.

Well...she's baaaaaaaaaaaack....
