Lawyers are not heroes. I don't say that to be unkind; I'm sure there are valiant and principled people in the law as in most walks of life. Jennifer Walters, the eponymous star of the new She-Hulk ongoing series from writer Charles Soule and artist Javier Pulido, is one of those good people.
Yet as a profession, lawyers do not represent "good" the way that superheroes do. Soule, a practicing lawyer himself, clearly recognizes this; he even has one character state, "I am neither bad nor good. I am simply Legal." The muddy ethics of lawyering provide a very different set of challenges to a superhero used to punching out their problems.
Two weeks, two high-profile writer swaps on major new Marvel titles.
Last week, Marvel announced that Haden Blackman was taking over as the new writer of the forthcoming Elektra title, replacing writer Zeb Wells because of Wells' increased TV commitments. Now, the company has announced that Inhuman, one of the most-hyped titles coming out of the Inhumanity event, won't be staffed by the series' originally announced writer, Matt Fraction. Charles Soule will be taking it over. Series artist Joe Madureira will remain on the book.
X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe hosted this year's X-Men panel at New York Comic-Con, which featured a number of big announcements for the "X" family of books. Panellists included writers Peter David, Gerry Duggan, Dennis Hopeless, Marjorie Liu, Brian Wood, Charles Soule, Simon Spurrier, and editors Jeanine Schaefer, Jordan White and Daniel Ketchum.
Marvel has announced the next book in its "All New Marvel Now" initiative, and it's definitely one that will stand out. Starting early next year, Jen Walters gets her own monthly series again with She-Hulk #1, written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Javier Pulido, according to USA Today.
We've been pretty intrigued by Charles Soule and artist Alberto Alburquerque's upcoming sci-fi drama Letter 44 since snagging a black and white variant of the first issue at SDCC this past summer, but it seems publisher Oni Press has plenty left to show us on the road to the book's October release. On top of sending CA a press kit complete with promo materials and a cryptic signed letter from the (fictional) President of the United States of America, they sent our senses sailing straight to space camp by including Astronaut ice cream.
From The Sixth Gun to Helheim to Wasteland, Oni Press has had its supernatural adventure comic bases covered for a bit now, but this October writer Charles Soule and artist Alberto Alburquerque will be bringing some sci-fi into the fold in their new series, Letter 44.
