Wolverine. Deadpool. Doctor Doom. Thanos. There's one hero who's beaten them all, and now she's got her own book! And to celebrate she's set her sights even higher - much higher. We're talking Galactus! But first Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl, is starting college, making new friends, eating nuts and kicking butts, not necessarily in that order! Together with her best (human) pal Nancy, and her best (squirrel) pal Tippy-Toe, and armed only with a tail and some foe fact-filled trading cards, she'll take on villains including Kraven the Hunter, Whiplash and, oh, yeah, the Devourer of Worlds!

It's been a while since I was a regular Marvel comics reader, so I only recently heard of Squirrel Girl even though she's been around for a while. This was my introduction to her, and I can see why she appears to be getting a lot of buzz lately. Her flippant, optimistic, swashbuckling approach to heroics is a delight. Sarcastic, funny, and entertaining. It seems, with her unconventional style, there's nothing she can't do--she even defeats Galactus; well, saves Earth from Galactus, anyway. She steals--er, borrows--Iron Man's armor, runs off Kraven, takes on an Asgardian god, and takes down the Avengers (in 26 seconds). All in the most mischievous ways possible. Oh, and she finds time to start college and become friends with fellow student-heroes Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi. Meta without being convoluted, silly without being dumb. And with a killer tagline: "It's time to eat nuts and kick butts!" Delightfully fun.

Squirrel Girl is my second-favorite Marvel hero, and her books contain my favorite Marvel writing. I admire her ability to kick butts with both her powers of squirrel AND her powers of girl. I love the quirky humor, and how this comic never takes itself too seriously.

Squirrel Girl’s superpower allows her to communicate with squirrels, so she can marshal them to assist her when needed. Her strength is her ability to listen, when facing her foes, and to offer a solution that gets at the heart of the issue in a way that the bully hadn’t considered.
If you are a Marvel comics fan, you will appreciate this book, otherwise the humor will bewilder you as it did me. I stopped two-thirds of the way through.
