Marvel Comics Announce Immortal She-Hulk, Spinning Out of Empyre

On today's Pull-List video from Marvel Entertainment, the publisher announced a number of reschedulings and focusing on events that we'll get to. But I thought pulling this out was worthy. A one-shot spinoff of Al Ewing and Joe Bennett's critical and commercial hit Immortal Hulk. With Immortal She-Hulk #1 starring Jennifer Walters. Written by Al Ewing, drawn by Jon Davis-Hunt with a cover by Bennett and spinning out of whatever happens in Empyre, which Ewing is co-writing. So stuff is going down in that event, and Al Ewing is keeping it going, by tieing the Empyre fallout to his Immortal brand.

IN THE WAKE OF EMPYRE, JEN WALTERS GOES IMMORTAL!
The events of Empyre have changed everything for Jennifer Walters. Now she seems to have a new lease on life…but things are never that simple for the gamma-powered. Al Ewing gives She-Hulk the "IMMORTAL" treatment with a horrifying stand-alone tale!

Immortal Hulk is a Marvel Comics series that was launched with issue #1 on June 6, 2018 from Ewing and Bennett, and redefined the comic and the character as a horror series, in a fashion compared to Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Rick Veitch's Swamp Thing. With Bruce Banner and the Hulk having been through different deaths and rebirths, allowing the Devil Hulk to seal the other incarnations away and become the dominant Hulk persona, appearing during the night, even if the Banner had been mortally injured. With all gamma-radiated Hulk creatures gaining a similar ability. The Immortal Hulk has seen 'Hulk Smash' recontextualised on a global economic scale, as the book has delved into politics and the economy while still hitting things very hard indeed. Now it seems that Jennifer Walters as She-Hulk will get a turn.
