    One thought on “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Beats Up the Marvel Universe”

    1. Despite the title, Squirrel Girl has never been a character built around solving problems with hyper violence. She talked Galactus out of eating Earth by offering him a healthier alternative. She convinced Kraven to back off by offering him a hunt more challenging. She, in general, will only get violent when an opposing force can not be reasoned with (this series is the reason that, canonically, Squirrel Girl has beaten up the entirety of the Avengers for being dismissive).And based on this book [...]

    2. You know what Squirrel Girl doesn't do much of in her main series? Beat people up. Her whole thing is that she can compromise and talk it out with pretty much everyone. So when she finds herself fighting a warped clone Squirrel Girl who has all of her powers and none of her inhibitions, Squirrel Girl must watch the entire Marvel Universe fall!This is great. If you're reading the main Squirrel Girl book, this is just like reading a three or four issue arc of that book, but all in one go, and with [...]

    3. This was a pleasant surprise, for it came out of low expectations to be an entertaining graphic novel.This reader initially thought that this was collection of the monthly Squirrel Girl comic books but this is an all new novel-length story. I thought that having not read any of the issues except for the first would be a deterrent to enjoying this story, well, it almost was but the book itself, through flashback and dialogue, gave hints that allowed this reader to catch up at least enough to the [...]

    4. This is probably the best Squirrel Girl so far! So clever! Observation A: artisanal cupcake depositories would make great secret bases.Observation B: these were great ways to beat all the good guys and bad guys, and Observation C: compromise = good. ; )

    5. I like SG. She's fun and goofy and is a really good role model. It's also nice to see the Marvel Universe not taken so seriously all the time.

    6. Squirrel Girl's the best! And Squirrel Girl * 2 is more so. SG1 and SG2 prove that nobody can hope to beat squirrel power. SG2 takes on the Marvel roster and cleans their clocks! SG1, with her respect for others, and willingness to talk to solve problems, and help from Tippy Toe, must fight her doppelgänger to protect the world.Lots of fun, with some moving moments, too.

    7. This standalone was so much fun! I felt like the series faltered a little bit (wasn't a big fan of the Choose your own adventure story - great in concept but hard to follow in terms of panels) but this standalone definitely revived my love for Squirrel Girl!

    8. God Bless All Ages Comics.I needed some good silliness and I got it and I am pleased. Also I am sad that we didn't see Tippy-Toe-Thor in costume.

    9. I've read several Squirrel Girl graphic novels and she is probably one of my favorite Marvel characters. That being said, this one kind of missed the mark for me. Basically while helping Tony Stark with a new invention, Squirrel Girl clones herself. Now there are two Doreens, one going by her middle name, Aileen. After seeing a squirrel hit by a car, Aileen determines humans have made the earth a terrible place to live (can't argue with her there) and mounts a takeover by herself and tons of clo [...]

    10. Doreen Green, as a character, will always have my undying love, but I gotta say, the plot in TUSG has been pretty thin for a while now, to the point where I probably wasn't going to rush to continue. This OGN got me back on board, though. Beating up super villains (and heroes) is all well and good, but I need to dig into a little bit of the protag's personal life to really get a lot out of it. I felt the Doreen/Allene scenario helped in that department (and was thankful it didn't devolve into th [...]

    11. Who knew that Squirrel Girl was powerful enough to take down the entire Marvel universe? With some outside-the-box thinking and the knowledge of a second year computer science student, it is possible! This story is hilarious. It's fun to see the references to other famous Marvel (and some DC) stories. Also, the ending has a lot of heart.

    12. This was pretty cute. I doubt I'd read it again so I'm happy I borrowed it from the library, but it was definitely a fun romp with thousands of squirrels.

    13. So I REALLY wanted to love this one, because it's Squirrel Girl, but I just didn't. The storyline just wasn't my cup of tea. However, because it IS Squirrel Girl, it still gets 3 stars from me.

    14. 4.5. Extremely endearing, very funny. Could, however, have taken a more interesting/nuanced approached to the intra-species kinship stuff with allenne.

    15. I expected this one to be longer than it was -- or did it feel shorter than it actually was? I'm not sure. It's about the same length as one of the Squirrel Girl TPBs even though it's a standalone graphic novel. It was just too short! Yes, the thing that kept me from giving The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Beats Up the Marvel Universe five stars is that IT WASN'T LONG ENOUGH. Good thing I'm not an official reviewer because I'm sure that's a terrible illogical reason to dock points. (Heretical aside: [...]

    16. Don't tell Squirrel Girl, but it's no secret to anyone that knows me that I reallydislike squirrels. I do not think they are cute. I do not have an overwhelming urge to take pictures of them or feed them when they approach me—beady eyes shining and tail twitching—in the park. To put it plainly, squirrels make my skin crawl. BUT, I think The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is great. I'd avoided the comic for awhile, thinking that the last thing I would ever want to read was an ongoing comic with the [...]

    17. Um comic refrescante. Claramente mais virado para leitores juvenis, simples sem ser simplista, com uma escrita leve no argumento, acompanhada por traços dinâmicos na ilustração. Squirrel Girl é um comic cuja heroína tem os poderes de um esquilo, também capaz de comunicar com estas pequenas criaturas. Na sua identidade secreta é uma estudante de ciências computacionais. Este comic atreve-se a quebrar alguns dos elementos expectáveis do género, pertencendo à nova geração de personage [...]

    18. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is Marvel’s most delightful comic book. In other news, you can describe water in three states. Squirrel Girl Beats Up The Marvel Universe! thankfully skews closer to Fred Hembeck Destroys the Marvel Universe than Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe. Did you know I was the first customer to get it signed by Erica Henderson & Ryan North the World’s Tallest Torontonian at NYCC? I read it months ago but didn’t review it until now because I don’t being on top o [...]

    19. Is there any comic book out there today that is as adorable as Squirrel Girl? (Okay, maybe Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat) but Ryan North and Erica Henderson have gone and taken a joke character, how evolved into a cult character, into one of Marvel's best characters as The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! And in this original graphic novel, our heroine proves that she truly deserves that title, as her warped clone actually takes on all the heroes and villains in the Marvel Universe and DEFEATS them! Of [...]

    20. One of my sisters-in-law gifted me with this new Squirrel Girl book for my birthday. My to-read pile be darned! I had to read this book next. I gifted my son with a Squirrel Girl graphic novel for Christmas, and I read it first and thought it was a delight. This new stand-alone volume obviously jumps forward in the timeline--there were new characters I hadn't met yet--but it was very easy to get into the book. Squirrel Girl is such a fun, relatable superhero--she's curvy, devoted to her friends, [...]

    21. So this was a delight. It was a Squirrel Girl graphic novel! All the humour, heart and education you'd expect of Squirrel Girl, but more! The plot was goofy, and aware of its own goofiness, but embraced the goofiness with sincerity. It helps that Squirrel Girl's clone isn't evil. She's a good person. She's just unwilling to compromise. She's more extreme than Doreen, but she's not truly evil. She is very clever, though, as she takes down various heroes and villains in very clever and creative wa [...]

    22. Y'all have been around here long enough to know that I love Squirrel Girl, right? Well, if you haven't, I love Squirrel Girl. This installment is a standalone graphic novel that may or may not actually link into the larger Marvel Universe, but I find I don't care either way, because it's literally what it says on the tin. In this book, Squirrel Girl beats up the Marvel Universe. Including Deadpool. Okay, well, technically, it's her evil twin beating up the Marvel Universe, but whatever, it's Squ [...]

    23. A+++This is so funny and clever and great, definitely works as a stand-alone if (FOR SOME REASON) you haven't read any Squirrel Girl yet. Also like a kiiind of deep investigation of problems of late-stage capitalism and the concept of superheroism in general?Also I hardly ever comment on art when I review comics, because I am a monster, but I will pause to admire Erica Henderson for her art! Love the variety of body types on display and also Tony Stark's goofy face. Also I think Ryan North under [...]

    24. This was a true delight. Amazing if you've read all the Squirrel Girl comics but also a fabulous way to get INTO this great character if you have never read her before. Her wit, humor, smarts and the great way the author crafts the plot made this a page turner; add in the truly fabulous art and you'll be laughing, loving, and delighting in this from start to finish. Squirrel Girl is invited to Iron Man's penthouse where he has an unknown machine he'd like to experiment withd that's all the "spoi [...]

    25. Adventure! Excitement! Evil Clones! A tech tree to take down every threat in the Marvel Universe! This book sure does have it all. Funny, well written, with dynamic, interesting art, the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is always a great read. There is slightly more butt kicking than nut eating in this graphic novel than in her usual book, which is awesome. There are also bonus activities like a word search, connect the dots puzzle, and a tutorial on how to draw an amazing picture of Squirrel Girl. I hi [...]

    26. I LOVED this! My first foray into the world of Squirrel Girl & I found a great female driven story with lots of high jinks & humor. And squirrels. What's not to love?!As a standalone graphic novel, it didn't matter that I wasn't familiar with the character (the story features lots of characters we're ALL familiar with. Uh, hello, Marvel Universe!) and as it followed a longer story arc in one, you had none of the concerns over missing backstory or having to wait for future installments, s [...]
