Quirky is all the rage among comic book fans these days, and no one does quirky better than Squirrel Girl.
The fourth-wall-breaking, insanely confident butt-kicker of every single villain in the Marvel Universe has rapidly become a fan favorite, landing her own solo title after years as a supporting character. Now, Marvel Comics has decided to take their promotion of Squirrel Girl to the next level with the announcement of an Original Graphic Novel from the regular series creative team of Ryan North and Erica Henderson.
The story will be released in a sturdy hardcover this October, Squirrel Girl joins the rarified company of Marvel’s heaviest hitters such as Deadpool and the Avengers.
The original graphic novel is entitled The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Beats Up The Marvel Universe and, if the title is any indication, Doreen Green will be expanding her horizons beyond pummeling Marvel’s biggest villains and find herself in a position where she has to face off against some of its most powerful heroes.
