ANALYSIS
As mentioned last time, TAH #19 was supposed to go back to press for a 2nd printing.. it's missing this month as well. Either way, even with all the guest stars/crossover, it's still settling into that 22-23k range, which will inevitably drop back to the sub-18k range unless fan reaction to the Return to Planet Hulk manages to exceed expectations and/or provides a resurrection of Banner.

Jenn's title did exactly what I thought might happen. Retailers bump it 5k and then drop it even lower than the previous issue. Changing the TPB back to She-Hulk seems a clear indication of what Marvel thinks of the new direction. The title will be quietly cancelled soon I'd imagine.

As for the future, I still maintain that someone will have kidnapped Banner's corpse and brought it to Sakaar. Inevitably, the alien planet will be partially responsible for his return. In fact, I'd even say we get Salad Head back because he was brain dead/zombified for so long.
