So much fun. I love Squirrel Girl, simply because she's never meant to be taken seriously and is still so endearingly earnest anyways. It's wonderfully silly, even while the events in the book are being taken seriously by the characters in the book. This is a book that I think my niece would really get a kick out of, and I can enjoy it, too, so win-win. Actually, I think that this would probably be a favorite comic of the Lumberjanes cast, which is a really wonderful thing. Squirrel Girl isn't q ...more

Ten things I have loved, and continue to love, about Squirrel Girl:
1.) Body positivity
2.) A relentless refusal to be anyone other than herself
3.) She's got a silly, dad-joke type sense of humor
4.) CAT THOR (and I don't even really like cats. At all.)
5.) The shit she gives to Iron Man (and the way she interacts with the rest of the Marvel universe on the whole)
6.) Those footnotes!
7.) The letter to the editors are always full of SO MUCH positivity
8.) Diverse, inclusive, and no 'tokens' here!
9.) D

All right, I liked it, but it took me a while to get into it. I am not a big fan of the art, so didn't feel drawn in. It's the garish color scheme. Maybe that's a small thing. But it made me keep putting it down, picking it up. But to be fair: the energy and positive girl power spirit continues, which is all good, and I like the whole silly squirrel girl and sidekick-who-is-actually-a-squirrel thing, and all the readers who send pictures of themselves with squirrels, my fave one from a squirrel ...more

OK, I think this book is starting to grow on me (like mould) as I actually quite enjoyed this second volume. Maybe I'm mellowing in my old age... or senility is kicking in.

Charming, harmless, frothy fun... Nothing great but to keep saying mean things about it would feel too much like kicking a puppy.

P.S. It's only with the introduction of Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi that I've realised that, in the US, 'Squirrel Girl' rhymes. Here in the UK, we pronounce the E in squirrel, making it a two syllable

Although not as cute as the first volume, it was super great to meet the rest of Doreen's superhero team and watch her get to beat up ******** and steal his ******* and have them not even ******! And then Nancy figured out the answer while hanging out with ****** and ****** on ******! TEAMWORK! \o/

Probably what made this feel so weird is that some guest artists drew Doreen and I recoiled from the page because no. It made me want to KICK BUTTS. Can I just petition Marvel to only allow Erica Hende

This book is funny as hell. I'm so happy to have a book that's actually funny, and to see a character who is confident without having to throw out lines about her confidence all the time or fight a bunch of straw men created to make a point about how she's good at this and that. She's doing what I want in comics, kicking ass and cracking wise. It's exactly what I love about Spider-Man. Okay, part of what I love. There isn't quite the emotional depth for me, or not yet at least, but this definite ...more

Continuing Marvel's best and funniest meta-comic, this time with an epic to rival the Galactus/Planet of Nuts arc.
Loki changing himself into [NO SPOILERS HERE] to annoy his brother is the highlight of highlights.

Better than the first volume, but the best stories in the book are the three little reprint stories in the back. I hate the little footnotes that you can barely read because of the color and tiny font size. I also hate how the first page of each issue is just a made up twitter feed. It's a comic book. I want artwork on every page. ...more

So fun! I can't wait to read more from this world.

I loved the commentary on the bottom of each page. I also loved her group of friends! Such great variety and glad to see some fun characters who aren't all white dudes. I need more superheroes like this! Or I just need to keep reading Squirrel Girl. ^_^

I adore Squirrel Girl. The art is fun and the stories make me smile. This collection gave a lot more page time to Doreen's cat-loving friend Nancy, who is awesome--and her creation Cat-Thor even came to life thanks to Loki. The flashbacks to the old Squirrel Girl were the one off-note for me, as for some reason I find the old art (even redone in modern style) kinda creepy. ...more

*4.5 stars*

OK, there's only one thing wrong with having read Volume 2 of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: I can't find any pre-order listings for Volume 3. When is Volume 3 coming out???? If any of you guys know, please tell me!

The first issue in this volume felt a little scattered and unfocused, which is why this is a 4.5 star review instead of a 5 star review, but even in the first issue, there were bits I found really funny, and after that, I just kept on laughing out loud and loving it all the

I'm seriously in love.

And, like, I've never really considered cosplaying much (beyond, say, generic Hufflepuff student), but even though I don't have anywhere to actually cosplay, I was thinking about how I could pull off a halfway decent Squirrel Girl outfit. THIS IS HOW GREAT THIS BOOK IS.

It's too bad Marvel on Comixology doesn't let you download your books; otherwise, I'd totally subscribe right this second.

This series continues to be fun! I love how lighthearted it is but at the same time puts a different spin on the story. Defeating the bad guy is not the standard beat it out. Although there is fighting, Squirrel Girl is always looking for that alternative to end the fight. Interaction with Nancy and her new friends is fun and I love how the popular superheroes are portrayed. Definitely going to keep going!

This second volume did not disappoint. I'm only mad at myself for not picking up the series last year when people began raving about it. As usual, I'm late to the party. But better late than never, because it has quickly shot up my list of comic faves. If you like puns, friendships, squirrels, and hilarity (and why wouldn't you like any or all of those things?), I cannot recommend this enough. ...more

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is my new OBSESSION!

If I have any coherent thoughts later, I will write them down for sure.
But just so you know, you needed to read this series like yesterday BECAUSE IT'S SO FREAKING GOOD!

I enjoyed the first ones second half but this volume kind of dragged and dragged. The start of it was fun enough, and I still LOVE the twitter parts of it but the rest...trying too hard to be funny/cute and it's kind of just boring. The art is still just okay and the story just goes at a snail's pace. I think might drop this one, for it's not bad, it's just not for me. ...more

Volume 2 takes a bit of a detour from the first in both story and art that while didn't propel any of the storyline along, did provide some interesting POV from other characters on Squirrel Girl that might or might not be true but sure was fun to read.

I possibly may have fallen in love with Nancy's Cat Thor and am curious to read more fanfiction on that so if anyone knows of any, please pass it along.

This title continues to delight. It's just so enthusiastic about everything that you can't help but love it. I like that they are including the letters pages in the reprints. I always enjoyed reading those back when letters pages in comics were a common thing. It's so nice to realize that other folks are as into a title as you are.

Cat Thor! Yes! And Loki! North has the bickering siblings thing down pat. Nice to see a particular character from Norse mythology making an appearance ...

You remember that Batman episode where different kids gave their individual take on the Dark Knight?

Imagine that with Squirrel Girl.

Also, there's screaming at zoo animals, a hippo man, a legitimately terrifying squirrel-based foe, and reprints of some of Doreen's fun old appearances.

It's worth it for Thor's reaction to Wikipedia.

Squirrel Girl is irreverently funny and chock full of (squirrel) girl power. Doreen Green's roommate, Nancy Whitehead is one of my all-time favorite characters. Her Cat Thor fan fiction is pure genius. As with the first volume, I had some trouble reading the font. My eyes are horrible and the font seems extra tiny, especially the quips at the bottoms of the pages. Also, I could really do without the older versions of Squirrel Girl that keep getting thrown in--what's up with those weird Joker eye ...more

I love Squirrel Girl. Can we get a SG movie? I love her cheesy jokes, I love the self love and she is the most positive person (super or regular) ever. She tries to talk out all problems before she kicks major bad guy rump. Cat Thor was great also Loki in general. One of my favorite things is that the rest of the Marvel Universe is in her stories too and they have such mixed feelings about her, plus she goes from fangirling over them to acting like it's not big deal that she's talking to Thor on ...more

The second collection of Squirrel Girl adventures primarily focuses on her battling an Asgardian Squirrel God. So funny that this is an actual Norse myth.
