The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1 October 2015 Review

Galactus. Thanos. M.O.D.O.K. With her unique combination of wit, empathy, and totally kick-butt squirrel powers, Doreen Green — aka The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl — has taken ALL these chumps down! Alongside her friends Tippy-Toe (a squirrel) and Nancy (a regular human with no powers whatsoever — they checked), Squirrel Girl is all that stands between the Earth and total destruction! Sometimes. Other times there’s no threats and she’s just a regular computer science student. That’s an adventure too though!

Since The Dragon will not be reviewing The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl anymore, I, Jedite83, have decided to take up the task. I went and read the last 8 issues to get caught up with whats going on.


When Doreen Green, aka The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is not saving the world with her friends Nancy Whitehead (regular non-superpower human roommate), Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi, she is foing boring normal things like going to school and introducing her roommate to her mom. After having to site through embarising sorys of her child hood, Doreen, Nancy and Maureen Green (SG’s mom) head back to there place where they are not attacked by Brain Drain. After beating him up then repairing him, they help him to get his life back on track.


OMG, this series is adorable. As The Dragon pointed out in a earler review, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl seems to be targeted to a younger audience, however it is funny, even for us adults.
The art style has changed since version 1 earlier this year, due to a new artist. Personally I like it a bit better then the old style. The story was okay, but nothing special. Hopefully next month’s will be better.
If you are a Squirrel Girl fan, then you have probley already read it, otherwise you can pass without the world ending.
