Marvel have revealed a return to the title that gave Jennifer Walter’s her first solo series.
Marvel has confirmed that the beloved character, Sensational She-Hulk, will be making a triumphant return in October with a new series. The series will be helmed by writer Rainbow Rowell, who is ecstatic to delve back into the world of Jennifer Walters, the She-Hulk, alongside artist Andrés Genolet. The title “Sensational” holds a special significance for Rowell, as it harkens back to the iconic run by artist and writer John Byrne in the eighties. She envisions the new book to capture the same essence of that era – an irresistible blend of stunning artwork, humor, and a celebration of Jennifer Walters as a multifaceted character and woman.
The previous issues of She-Hulk have focused on Jen’s personal journey and her relationships, and now, with the groundwork laid, Rowell is eager to steer the narrative towards a more fun and exciting direction. She-Hulk’s unique position within the Marvel universe allows for a plethora of opportunities to include various supporting characters. Rowell promises that the regulars, such as Jack, Patsy, and the Punch Club, will be back, and fans can expect engaging guest stars like Mallory and Awesome Andy, Titania, and Volcana.
One of the central aims of the new series is to showcase Jennifer Walters’ romantic side. While she has sought companionship in the past, these relationships haven’t always been explored in detail. With “Sensational” She-Hulk, Rowell plans to put romance at the forefront, allowing Jen to have a fuller and richer life both in and out of superhero battles.
The addition of a new character named Scoundrel adds a twist to Jen’s romantic prospects. He brings a refreshing contrast to Jack and provides an intriguing dynamic for Jen to explore. As the story unfolds, readers will encounter familiar faces from Jen’s past, both friend and foe, and witness her navigating through challenging situations with those who inadvertently stand in her way.
Rowell acknowledges that this is her first time writing a book that focuses solely on a single character, which brings a different rhythm and presents an opportunity to build the world around Jennifer Walters. The collaboration with artist Andrés Genolet has been a source of excitement for Rowell, praising the progressively stunning artwork with each new issue.
For existing readers, the return of “Sensational” She-Hulk will be a delightful surprise, assuring them that the party isn’t over yet. And for new readers, they are in for a treat with the sheer enjoyment and adventure that this book promises to deliver.
The upcoming series holds the promise of exploring Jen’s life in more depth, embracing her relationships, and showcasing her in various compelling scenarios. With Rainbow Rowell and Andrés Genolet at the helm, fans can eagerly anticipate the triumphant return of Sensational She-Hulk in all her green glory.
