She-Hulk #6

   The new She-Hulk series continues to fly a bit under the radar, but it's consistently good - funny and clever, with good characterizations and unique stories.

   The ongoing story by Charles Soule is a bit murky, but that's by design. She-Hulk has her team investigating a mysterious lawsuit that involves several heroes - but no one has any memory of it.

   Even worse, when the person who brought the lawsuit is mentioned, the people getting sued tend to go berserk - and then promptly forget all about it again.

   Throw in an attempted assassination, an attack by demons and an unexpected guest star and you have another entertaining (if somewhat confusing) issue.

   The art by Ron Wimberly is a bit uneven for some reason - the quiet, personal scenes are excellent, but the action sequences are just too chaotic - I'm not sure what's going on there.

   Still, this series is smart and fun - a rare combination in comics these days!

Grade: B+
