She-Hulk, Esq: A Discussion on A Super-Hero Lawyer

SheHulk_4thWallI loved John Byrne’s Sensational She-Hulk back in 1989. It was a fun ride, from space truckers to breaking the fourth wall.

I have been very impressed with Charles Soule’s new She-Hulk series, focusing more on the practice of law than smashing super-villains.

However, unlike the actual practice, no one gets to fight robots or have judges accept motions without any underlining pleadings.

Marguerite Kenner (@LegalValkyrie) and Alasdair Cookie (@AlasdairStuart) joined me while on holiday from the United Kingdom to discuss the first four issues of the new She-Hulk comic.

We cover many topics, including She-Hulk setting up her law practice, the duty of loyalty to clients, and the legality of secretly recording someone in California from the first issue of the new series.
