This is Comic Book Club News for June 19, 2024.

Sensational She-Hulk To End With Issue #10:

Writer Rainbow Rowell has confirmed that Sensational She-Hulk will end with issue #10 at Marvel.

Said Rowell on X (formerly Twitter): “Hey, She-Hulk readers, It is with great sadness that I tell you, Issue 10 is the end of our run… She-Hulk was on my Marvel dream list, and I feel really lucky to have taken her this far. This end came too soon for me, but I would have kept writing Jen and Jack forever. There’d never be a good time to say goodbye. Thank you for reading our book and reviewing it, and for coming here to talk to me about it.”

While disappointing, it isn’t too much of a surprise. In fact, back when Marvel’s August solicits hit, She-Hulk wasn’t listed past issue #10. So with 15 issues of Rowell’s original run on the title, and another 10 on Sensational She-Hulk, that’s a pretty hefty number of comics. Now we’ll just wait on word if Captain Marvel, which also was not in the August solicits, will end with issue #10.

Funny enough, the final issue of Sensational She-Hulk will now hit stores on August 14.

Joshua Williamson Is Exiting Green Arrow and Batman & Robin:

It’s a real comings and goings here today on the podcast, as Joshua Williamson has announced he’s leaving DC Comics’ Green Arrow and Batman & Robin. Don’t worry, there’s no acrimony here. Unless you wanted some drama, in which case: sorry.

Per Williamson’s newsletter: “Leaving both books were my choice, just to be clear. It was a hard one, no doubt. One that I lost some sleep over, as I had stories left to tell with both books, but my gut told me it was time.” He adds that the three reasons he left were to reduce his workload, focus on new comics, as well as some surprising opportunities. He also notes that neither series is getting canceled, and he already knows who the next “exciting” creative teams are.

As is, Williamson will wrap up his run on Batman & Robin with September’s issue #13, and Green Arrow with October’s issue #17, as well as that month’s annual. Good luck, Williamson! Hope you get a nice, relaxing breather while you add more comics onto your plate and even more surprising opportunities, that seems non-stressful.

Declan Shalvey Announces Old Dog: Operations With All-Star Team:

Declan Shalvey’s Old Dog is a wild, action-packed sci-fi spy caper. And now it’s getting some new blood thanks to an anthology series titled Old Dog: Operations.

Along with Shalvey, the new book will feature a series of shorts by Charles Soule, Leonardo Romero, Matias Bergara, Alex Paknadel, and more. Said Shalvey via press release provided to Comic Book Club: “Creating Old Dog at Image has been the highlight of my professional career. Not just the opportunity to fully tell stories of my own, to develop and experiment with my craft, but also now to have established a sandbox where I can invite other creators to play in. I cannot believe how lucky I am to have such accomplished storytellers joining me to tell some Old Dog tales.”

The new one-shot will hit stores from Image Comics on September 18.
