really liked it

This book collects Issues Issues 7-11 of Squirrel Girl (Vol. 2).

Issue 7 is a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style comic where Squirrel Girl battles the Swarm. It's a fun little story that just takes enough space for its concept.

Issues 8-10 is the heart of the book. Doreen/Squirrel Girl decide to date as the one cute guy she was attracted to is dating someone else. However, the most normal she has is with a giant sentinel robot. Her worst date is with a "Superhero truther" who insists that all the Superheroes are government conspiracies. That is until she runs into the Mole Man, who wants to kill her and then falls in love with her. It's mostly a very fun story. It has its own message and ideology which is worked in subtly enough.

Issue 11 finds Squirrel Girl battling Doctor Octopus, even though he's dead. There's a very clever twist and she'll need all her computer science to survive. I do appreciate how this is worked in as well as the issue's guest artist. This is an exceptionally good one-shot story that's well-worth a read.

Overall, this is another strong volume in the Squirrel Girl, with two fun one-shots sandwiching a pretty solid three-part arc.
