Mariko Tamaki has announced that her tenure as She-Hulk writer will conclude with March 7's She-Hulk #163 - which also serves as the series' final issue.
"For those of you asking online, yes, it is true, #163 will be my final issue with She-Hulk," Tamaki tweeted. "That said, these issues coming up are my favorite issues! We wanted to leave this series with Jen/She-Hulk ready for all the things she has ahead of her, and I think we've done that. Also, we've included some more Hulk Smashing, for kicks."
"I'm fortunate to have had the opportunity to write this character through some serious challenges," she continued. "I worked with an incredible team and collaborated with incredible artists on this series, and I can't wait to tell you the stuff we are working on next! Which I cannot. As it is obviously top secret. Or I would tell you. But it is awesome."
Editor Christina Harrington followed up Tamaki's statement with some tweets of her own, saying "Everyone involved with this book poured their hearts into it - and we've been lucky to use the next few months to resolve big beats for Jen. You don't want to miss 162 & 163. They set She-Hulk up for what's next...though I can't say anything about that just yet."
"Huge thank yous to Mark Paniccia and Tom Brevoort who fought for this series from day one. When we knew we weren't getting another arc after 163, they let us end Jen's arc on our terms and on terms that made sense for her character."
Harrington also confirmed that She-Hulk #163 will mark the series' end, adding that she is uncertain whether the previously mentioned plans for She-Hulk would include another solo title.
She-Hulk is seventh title cancelled by Marvel in the past month, including Jean Grey, Luke Cage, The Unbelievable Gwenpool, Hawkeye, Generation X, and Iceman. Several other titles, including America and Defenders were not listed in Marvel’s March 2018 solicitations, the latest to be released, but have not been confirmed as cancelled or continuing.
The series' next issue, She-Hulk #161, is due out on shelves January 10.
