“Attorney-at-Law” [All-New Marvel NOW! week]

In a weird way, She-Hulk was a book (and a song about the book) that I was always meant to write. For those who don’t know my personal history, I used to be a lawyer. I practiced for 3 years as a litigator in Washington, DC before I became Adam WarRock. True story, here’s proof. So I’ll admit, I’ve kind of always wanted to read a comic about a superhero that also was a practicing lawyer: whether it was Daredevil, She-Hulk or whoever. I always thought that the day-to-day lawyering (i.e. not the courtroom cases that Murdock was always involved in) would be interesting to see in that context. I’ll admit, I’m biased.
So when I found out that Charles Soule, also a former lawyer, was going to write a She-Hulk book and focus on her day-to-day grind as a lawyer, I was excited. But I don’t think I could’ve expected a book as good as this. I’ve never really cared about She-Hulk to this extent, but with the stories that Soule is writing and Pulido’s amazing art, I have to say that All-New She-Hulk has basically become my favorite comic, period. It’s Hawkeye-level good. So even if you never thought you’d care about She-Hulk as a character, or a Marvel character who was also a lawyer, give it a try. You might be surprised.
I’ve had a great time making these All-New Marvel NOW! songs, and thanks to some of the creators (Slott, Allred, Smith, Amanat, et. al.) who supported and retweeted/blogged the songs about their respective books. The cool thing about Marvel right now is that the creators, from young to old, are so supportive of fan culture like this, and I’ve honestly only ever had positive experiences interacting with them. Hell, some of them have even become my friends.
So go out, buy some comics, and sit down and enjoy. They’re pretty awesome right now. And hey, come see me live!
