Guardians Team Up #4
Written by: John Layman
Art by: Otto Schmidt
Cover by: Otto Schmidt
Released: April 1, 2015
The issue pairs up She-Hulk and Gamora, two of Marvel’s preeminent ladies (who also both happen to be a lovely shade of green… maybe Mantis was busy?). In John Layman’s more than capable hands, the plot stays light, the dialogue snappy, and he manages to make Ms. Jennifer Walters’ voice sound delightfully consistent with what she had in the late, great She-Hulk series (written by Charles Soule). The true star of this comic,
however, is artist Otto Schmidt, covering art duties with his first American gig. While he’s mostly known for his exceptional good girl art (caution: here be NSFW), here he reigns in his penchant for pin-ups and draws twenty pages of Jen and Gamora simply kicking all kinds of alien ass. His style at times shares the kinetic cuteness of Babs Tarr’s work, while displaying detailed backgrounds and an innate storytelling ability.
