In The Racks: She Hulk and Rouge Touch

When I saw that Marvel was releasing both The She-Hulk Diaries and Rogue Touch I was sold by just looking at the covers!  But as you know, you can't always judge a book by its cover!  So now I give you the good, the bad and the ugly!
She Hulk and Jennifer Walters share the same body.  Walters is a high powered attorney.  She Hulk is a crime fighting party girl.  Together they have one crazy life.  

I am always a sucker for a love story and falling in love with band members!  This book was a quick beach read for me during my vacation this summer.  I found that it kept my interest and kept me coming back for more.  There were some cheesy parts, but I didn't mind since this was my first introduction to She Hulk.  Her cousin Bruce makes a few appearances which is nice because he is my favorite super hero!  Overall, I wouldn't read it again, but I did enjoy it and would recommend it!

She Hulk: 3/5 stars


The X-men movies were some of the 1st comic book movies I ever saw so I was super excited to read up on the origin story of Rogue.

Rogue Touch follows Rogue on the run from the law with alien Touch.  I found it very hard to get into this one, unlike She Hulk.  It never really grabbed my attention and made me WANT to read it.  It really felt like a young adult, first love story, whiney, sappy thing.  I guess I am just getting to old for the teenage romance stories.  When I almost stopped reading the book, is when it finally got interesting.  The second half is actually quite good and if it was all like that I might have enjoyed it more.  That ended up redeeming it a bit for me, but not much as for me to recommend it to you all.

Rough Touch: 1/5 stars

  1. I HATED the she hulk diaries so much, but I am a massive shulkie fan. You should pickup Dan Slotts run on she hulk. Single green female-trade 1 is amazing and a much better representation of my fave lady.

  2. I LOVE She-Hulk. Definitely my favorite superhero. If you've not already, pick up the 80s series, The Sensational She-Hulk. Totally hilarious and some really great stories to boot.

  3. Was *really* disappointed with Rogue Touch, as I love Rogue and wanted it to be good. It's worse than even bad YA romances (and I love YA so it takes a lot for me to hate one). I have She-Hulk in my TBR list so glad to hear it's the better of the two!

  5. I'm reading She-Hulk right now (actually, Nerd Burger's copy) and I'm kind of enjoying it when I turn my brain off, but I tend to be REALLY picky with novels. Sad to hear the Rogue book isn't even that fun.
