Working on a Nervous Breakdown!

Is what John Byrne appears to be doing in this next recreated page of She-Hulk:-

Last week after going through a number of submissions for she-hulks comic to replace John Byrne on the basis that he was dead, She-hulk found he wasn’t dead after all but knocked on the head and locked in the closet by Renee…

In other words after poking fun at all the other artists featured so far John byrne is saving the most cutting parodic elements in the comic for a depiction of himself, as after all turn about is fair play

John on this page is almost frothing at the mouth, still what on earth could he have produced for the next issue of she-hulk that could have provoked such a reaction from Renee and what will she-hulks reaction to his submission be?

We will find out in TWO WEEKS time

You’re not Dead?

Continuing from last week, We now see She-Hulk react to pages that do not exist in my recreation:-

In the hopes that someone will come up with a better comic to be the She-Hulk comic that everyone actually wants to buy and won’t get cancelled (like all She-Hulk comics have to date, including of course the run of comics just after this very issue)

Anyway She-hulk decides she has had enough with the mysterious thumping thats been going on throughout the comic and finds none other than John Byrne, who is not only clearly not dead, but rather full of himself…

So we have gone through almost a whole entire comic devoted to finding other artists to create She-hulk on that basis that John Byrne was dead, what on earth can John have done that is so bad…?

We find out more, NEXT WEEK

The Inker Did The Best He Could to Save It…

Is She-Hulk’s response to the previous page which was recreated by Howard Mackie directly from other artists works, including John Byrne:-

The Inker in question is implied as being none other than John Byrne himself

Still on this page, which is clearly written and drawn by John Byrne She-Hulk makes the second reference to cancelling her comic, unless Renes own choice of creators for the comic get past more than 2 pages worth of She-Hulk reading it…

Which marks the point where this recreation by myself is going to take a bit of a tangent - As I am not going to reproduce those pages

The real ironic thing is that She-hulks comic did indeed get cancelled only after few issues of the creative team that did follow John Byrne, for all the surreal attempts by all the creators so far, the creative team eventually picked didn’t do so well

And this seems to be again, by confidence a timely thing, as She-hulks latest comic is also due for cancelation soon

So it seems wrong to revel in such things - so I am going to skip the next few pages entirely and just move on to She-hulks reaction to reading a comic you are not going to see

And leave it as an open invitation for anyone, including apparently Marvel to come up with something to fill in the gap that would meet with She-Hulks approval…

NEXT WEEK:- Someone finally comes out of the closet…

Who Cares About The Rest?!?

Is a question that gets asked by the next Artist / Writer on the next recreated page of She-Hulk

But before I share the page, lets prepare - the art is all recreated from other drawings by other artists, so we have a recreation of drawings originally by John Byrne, Rob Liefield and Mark Texeira, the following page is just my creation of the artists recreation.

The following also does seem to sum up what some people seem to be expecting when I say I am recreating original works, I am hoping I achieve a little more fidelity to the originals, but who can say?

That aside, here is the page, as drawn by Howard Mackie:-

Who at this time was enjoying success on his relaunch of Ghost Rider, as the comic book page more or less spells out for you

As always the question is what will She-hulks reaction to this page be…

And we will find out in Two Weeks Time

NEXT WEEK, It’s the return of “Super Spidey-Man!”

A kick up the eighties…

Is an expression which could be used to describe what She-Hulk does to Marvel Editorial in this next recreated page of she-hulk:-

As this comic is one of the last ones that John Bryne either wrote or drew for Marvel before going over to Dark Horse for quite a few years, there could be quite a lot that could be read into this and the proceeding page where Marvel editorial are portrayed of being much more interested in a target audience than the actual story per se…

We can already say with a fair degree of certainty that She-hulk is speaking for John Byrne in the rest of the comic as well

So I guess its very fortunate that Jim Shooter was not around when this comic was made, not that it would have even made it to print

For everything that is or isn’t said or inferred by featuring Marvel editorial interference in this comic, it still got approved by Tom Defalco himself

Still after kicking out the Adam Hughes pages and the Editorial team (who she literally gives the boot to) for being too “obvious”, she-hulk moves right onto suggesting to cancel her comic…

Renee however still has some pages of samples to show her and this time its a writer who is going to try at being an artist…

This will make for a rather interesting artistic experiment NEXT WEEK

What does it all mean, She-Hulk?

Is a question that Janet Van Dyne (AKA The Wasp) eventually asks near the end of this next recreated page - originally drawn by Adam Hughes…:-

Before we get to that, we continue from last week where She-hulk herself clarifies that the wasp is indeed naked (well okay, she clarifies a lot further than that) before the invading Atlantean horde (who also just by coincidence are all women) are repelled and retreat after seeing She-hulks .....


If you ask me someone else is more likely to be seeing She-hulks fist pretty soon…

That aside, She-Hulk gives The Wasp a bubble gum wrapper to cover herself with while she declares the whole thing to be a “machiavellian” plot…

Which if credulity had not already been broken a few panels back, this finishes it completely, as the plot, such as it is almost completely obvious and as far from “machiavellian” as you can possibly get

So, the question is how will She - hulk react to the Marvel Editorial story choice…
